This Jesuit is in Pp. Francis' (another Jesuit) kitchen cabinet.
A key advisor to Pope Francis, Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, has called for relaxation of Catholic teaching on gay sex, insisting that the Church should not ask “impossible things” of homosexuals....
...“How can you condemn people who cannot love except the same sex?” Hollerich asked during an interview with Glas Koncila, a Croatian Catholic weekly, published March 27. “For some of them it is possible to be chaste, but calling others to chastity seems like speaking Egyptian to them.”
“We can only charge people with moral conduct they can bear in their world,” the cardinal said. “If we ask impossible things of them, we will put them off.”...
Yah, well, maybe the Cardinal should read up on the rich young man who 'went away' after Christ asked him to sell all his goods....but then, this Cardinal won't care; he has an agenda.
...In the interview, Hollerich went on to criticize the Catechism of the Catholic Church and its manner of describing homosexuality.
“I find the part of the teaching calling homosexuality ‘intrinsically disordered’ a bit dubious,” he declared....
Is it mere co-incidence that +Cupich is also 'dubious' about Benedict XVI's description of homosexuality as a "grave disorder"?
+Hollerich goes on to deliberately create a straw man:
...“We should not reduce homosexuality to inordinate sexual relations. That is a very crude way of understanding a human person,” he said.,..
"We" don't, Eminence. But apparently you do. Hmmmmm.
Here's the reality of Church teaching on the topic:
...The Catechism, a compendium of authoritative Catholic teaching, says that Sacred Scripture “presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,” and thus tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered” and are “contrary to the natural law.”...
So +McElroy (and you can bet, Cupich and Hollerich with him) also does the linguistic shimmy-shimmy-shake:
...“The problem is,” McElroy argued, the word “disordered” is used in the Catechism “as a philosophical term, but to us in our country and really most of the world, disorder is thought of as psychological.”...
Yah, well, Eminence(s), the homosexual inclination is a disorder, both psychologically and philosophically.
Live with it, pal. So sorry about your feeeeeellllzzz.
