What a surprise. A Jesuit writes a column that appears in the Cincinnati archdiocese newspaper that questions the Church’s teaching on homosexuality. If this is the sort of thing that’s acceptable in the archdiocesan newspaper there, no wonder so many of their priests are capable of writing the recent open letters demanding consideration of priestesses and optional celibacy.
Fr. Ken Overberg, in this column, like those Cincinnati priests, asks that the Church re-consider what is already defined. He says Catholic teaching is clear that the homosexual condition is not a matter of morality, but homosexual activity is, but then cites “Always Our Children”, a product of a committee of non-bishops at the USCCB, clearly not part of the Church’s Magisterium. That’s telling.
