When you are Catholic and homosexual, you are rejected by 4 categories of people, and publicly supported by absolutely no one.
This needs to be known. When you are Catholic and homosexual, you are publicly supported by absolutely no one, and you are rejected by 4 types of people :
AS MUCH by the silent majority of homosexuals (who see you as a dangerous interiorised homophobic, a traitor towards their social acknowledgement)
AS by a large majority of Catholics (and among them, there are 3 subcategories :
1) the conservatives – who are scared of you and who judge that you are not enough of a believer, because if you really believed in God you would no longer say and feel that you are a homosexual -,
2) the indifferent – who do not understand you and who think that you act like a star and give importance to a subject that does not have one -,
3) gay-friendly progressives – who think that you are a fundamentalist because you try to defend what the Church says about homosexuality and explain how acted homosexuality is ambiguous, limited and unwanted by God).
Basically, without victimizing, here’s the picture. You’re being shot at from all sides. You are banished from society and the Church.
You scare everyone. And the worst thing is that you are told that you are isolating yourself when in practice you are the one who is being isolated.
