Title: CARDINAL HOPES GAY MASSES CAN BE ROLLED OUT THROUGHOUT CHURCH

A Westminster diocesan initiative to extend a special welcome to lesbian and gay Catholics at a regular Mass has proved so successful that Cardinal Vincent Nichols would like it to be rolled out nationwide, his lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) liaison priest has said.

The Masses, at the Jesuit Farm Street Church in central London, replaced the more controversial, so-called “gay Masses” that were designated for LGBT Catholics at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Soho until 2013.

Key to the transition was that the Farm Street Masses are an extension of the diocese’s pastoral care for gay people. LGBT Catholics join the regular congregation at the 6.15 p.m. Mass on Sunday evenings twice a month and meet afterwards for a social gathering in the parish hall.

Fr Keith Barltrop, who was appointed chaplain to the LGBT community by Vincent Nichols earlier this year, said that the cardinal would like to see the Farm Street Masses as a model for other parishes in his archdiocese. He added that the idea could be taken up by parishes in other dioceses.

The Farm Street Masses are similar to those said for the LGBT community in Chicago and Los Angeles. Martin Pendergast of the LGBT Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council said that any move to expand the model would be dependent on interested parishioners taking the lead.

Looking ahead to the October synod on the family in Rome, Mr Pendergast said his group was currently drawing up a briefing paper which it hoped Cardinal Nichols and Bishop Peter Doyle of Northampton, the delegates to the synod from England and Wales, would take with them and feed into the debate. A major line of argument in the paper, he said, would be a move to encourage the Vatican to undertake a “serious review” of the vocabulary it used in relation to homosexuality.

“Two terms which have been used by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in regard to homosexuality are ‘objective disorder’ and ‘intrinsic moral disorder’,” he said.

“But these are inaccurate and theologically quite inappropriate – and the people who are most hurt by this sort of language are the parents of children who come out as gay. What does it mean to them to hear their children described in those terms?” he added.

Meanwhile the head of Stonewall, Ruth Hunt, a cradle Catholic, said she did not see her being gay “as in any way contradictory with my faith, which was an integral part of my life – of who I am.”

In an interview with The Tablet, Ms Hunt, who attends Mass in Brixton, south London, said she was “bemused” by Catholics who insist there is no room for gay people and their relationships in the Church.

“This leads to an ever-widening chasm for some people between a strongly held [Catholic] belief in God and a very real sense of rejection from our Church,” she said.

Unrepentant lesbians AND homosexuals have indeed found a home in the so-called Catholic Church. That gaggle no longer worships God, but pays heed to their own wishful thinking, but God no longer resides within the bastardized Vatican II church which is the final result in the cobbling together of an entirely new religion; one that is utterly without the Holy Trinity.

Sedevacantists still worship at the Tridentine mass and if they can't then watching a traditional mass and following it with their Roman Missal on television is better than entering Vatican, Inc.'s debased buildings to worship man and whatever he wants.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

The catholic church struggles for relevantcy and now it is any port in a storm. they will fill their churches with gays as some other denominations do thinking that they do the will of God. The "be all things to all people" clause espoused by Paul, though I doubt he embraced being in a gay lifestyle. This is nothing new, their priests have been gay and paedophile for years, we can expect to see a gay Pope anytime soon. the Catholic Church, Babylon, the great whore
