    Good podcast especially about what real love is i.e. speaking and upholding the truth in kindness. Just because something doesn’t feel good doesn’t mean it isn’t good. Real love wills the good of the beloved, the eternal good…and there is nothing good about sodomy.

    I would be careful in thinking that just because people are in hetero relationships that their relationship is redeemable. If people were married in the Church i.e. a sacramental marriage, and if they commit adultery by “marrying” another person, there is no redeeming the adulterous relationship. Annulment isn’t Catholic divorce. True annulments are very rare with very specific guidelines that reflect that the marriage never existed in the first place. Sadly, the annulment tribunals in the US are handing out false and invalid annulments like candy…the Vatican has been saying for years that it is a scandal. Too bad they don’t care enough about the souls who are being lied to and living in objective states of adultery enough to do anything about it.

    Nobody who was sacramentally married in the Church can get an annulment and the overwhelming majority of marriages are just that, sacramental and valid. A better example of a redeemable rightly ordered relationship would be a man and woman living together who have never been sacramentally married. Now THAT can be redeemed and the marriage validated.

    Thank you for taking the time and effort to speak the truth about the lies of the “gay” life. Nobody is born disordered that way, but due to original sin, concupiscence affects us all. We are all called to chastity, to that wholeness and objectively right ordered way of seeing things in life when it comes to proper and naturally ordered sexuality. People with SSA are called to heal from it and develop the desires they were truly born to have: those toward the opposite sex. “Love” is not an emotion but a willing the good of the other. Anything that strays from that path ceases to be love.

    God bless you Joseph!
