Grin from ear to ear

My parents, in all their Victorian entrenched love, consulted a Priest, a doctor of ethics, about an article summarising the debate between Catholic moral theologians concerning homosexuality. Of course they wanted an answer that would justify their homophobic heteronormative belief structure...

but as God would have it; what they got was something adequately enlightening.


"Yet despite [the struggles in gay relationships], God can bring redemptive love out of gay friendships (subjective good) even though there may be elements of sexual relationship which out Catholic belief would see as objectively wrong. This is my personal belief rather than official Catholic teaching but I am sure that the two are not in coflict deep down."

Hmm, of course it's not a huge stamp of approval, but coming from the man I'm glad and think it's an important step should my parents accept it.
