Pope Francis-appointed bishop: Homosexuality is not ‘an option ... but a gift from God’ Antonio Carlos Cruz Santos , Brazil , Catholic , Daniel Mattson , Homosexuality , Pope Francis

CAICO, Brazil, August 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A Brazilian bishop who called homosexuality a “gift from God” in a homily defended his words by saying his intention was to “save lives” and help “overcome prejudices that kill.”

But Daniel Mattson, a same-sex-attracted Catholic and author of the recently released Ignatius Press book "Why I Don’t Call Myself Gay," says the bishop’s words will do the opposite.

“If homosexuality is a gift, and therefore it’s good, then why is it not good to act upon it?” he told LifeSiteNews.

“There’s a logical inconsistency there that’s going to lead to a lot of confusion, especially for young people, which will actually lead to more damage. Because when they live outside God’s plan for human sexuality, that always leads to unhappiness and despair.”

Bishop Antônio Carlos Cruz Santos of Caicó, Brazil, said at a July 30 Mass that “when you look at homosexuality, you cannot say it’s an option,” Crux reported.

“If it is not a choice, if it is not a disease, in the perspective of faith it can only be a gift,” the bishop added.

“A gift from God. It’s given by God. But perhaps our prejudices do not get the gift of God.”

Cruz, who was appointed by Pope Francis in 2014 after serving in some of Brazil’s more notorious slums, said when slavery was legal, “they said we black people didn’t have a soul.”

“Just as we were able to leap, in the wisdom of the Gospel, and overcome slavery, is it not the time for us to leap, from a perspective of faith, and overcome prejudices against our brothers who experience same-sex attraction?” the bishop asked.

Cruz said he was disturbed after hearing a radio interview with a professor who documented high rates of suicide among transsexuals and transvestites.

He started to think about “so many brothers and sisters with a homosexual orientation who feel misunderstood and unloved by us, who are Church, by their families, by their society and even by themselves, as it was in the days of slavery,” Cruz said.

The bishop also referred to Pope Francis’ quote from 2013: “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?”

Cruz referred, as did the pope, to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which proscribes unjust discrimination against homosexual persons, reported Crux.

Cruz also quoted the pope’s words in Amoris Laetitia, his controversial 2015 exhortation on the family, on the “accompanying, discernment and welcoming” of Catholics in “irregular unions.”

While this was addressed to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics, Cruz said, it could apply to homosexual persons as well.

Posted on YouTube, the homily sparked a number of reactions, with a number of critics blasting Cruz’s words as heretical and wanting the Vatican to intervene, Crux reported.

Cruz posted a statement on the diocesan website defending his words.

He was following the pope and the Church, Cruz said.

“As Pope Francis told us many times, people already know by heart the doctrine of the Church about abortion, divorce and homosexual acts,” he wrote.

“He asks us not to be obsessed with sin, increasing the wounds of these people, and insists that the doors of the church are open to welcome, instruct, discern, love in order to bring salvation to all without exception.”

Appointed by the "infallible pope".

Rainbow progressivism is where the $$$$ is.

Changing their spots to BBQ the cash cow isn't anything new under the Aten for the Jewsuits. 

In fact, it's their business model.

Got Mlk ?

Nothing New Under the Aten!
