Once again, the L.A. Times thinks it knows better than the Church that Jesus founded and the Holy Spirit guides
Lopez has done his share of going after Cardinal Roger Mahony about mishandling of molesters. But his column today (click on this post's title) is a propaganda piece for having homosexuals in the priesthood.
Lopez recounts interviewing Father Geoffrey Farrow, the now-suspended priest from the Diocese of Fresno. As you might recall reading here not long ago, Father Farrow recently told a TV station he was homosexual, denounced pro-marriage Prop 8 at Mass and then abandoned his parish post to light out for Los Angeles.
It figures that Father Farrow quickly would end up in the propaganda columns of the L.A. Times.
In his column, Lopez calls himself an agnostic, which makes anyone with good sense wonder why he bothers himself about what our Catholic Church believes and practices.
Anyway, every day as we each, as St. Paul tells us to, "Work out [our] salvation in fear and trembling," let's remember to pray for Father Farrow and for Steve Lopez.
And may we each remember and put into practice what Jesus tells us in today's Gospel:
"You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."
