Bishop Steib and the Gays

Ha!

Bishop Steib of Memphis has stirred a crap storm on a conservative blog because he is initiating a gay outreach ministry. More power to him.

I like Bishop Steib, he is more likely to tell you what's on his mind than not. It's a gutsy move for Memphis.

Besides he looks like President Palmer of 24. Don't you think?

Bravo to Bishop Steib!

Boy Dom, though, is a real homo-hater. Although I'm a gay Catholic I read his blog frequestly (guess I just like to be outraged!!!)

Boy Dom seems fixated on homosexuality. "Condescending, Pompous, Self-righteous" are words that seem to fit.

Combox full of little echos.

The rare commentator who disagrees gets a snarky smackdown.

It is about time that more Bishops and cardinals began realizing that gays and lesbians who are bap[tized are God's children and members of the Faith Community. Cardinal Roger Mahoney began an outreach ministry in 1986 and it is now active in many parishes and diocese of CA and now, thanks to the brave Bishop in Tennesseee it is finally spreading east. I head such a mission in Massachusetts, www.missionstsergius.org, but there is not official recognition by the diocese.
