Archbishop Vindenzo Paglia Says Vatican Should Do More To Support Gay Couples



I ran across an article from the Huffington Post claiming that Archbishop Paglia stated that the Vatican must do more to support gay couples.  The article seemed fishy as I read it.  It seems the media is twisting the Archbishop's words or intention and making it seem as if the Vatican is lending validity to gay couples.  I will investigate the sources well in order to confirm the Archbishop's words.  

The Catholic Church already speaks out against violence brought upon anyone.  We need not focus solely on gay couples.  If we do this, then we are giving validity to that unnatural union.  The Church must be clear that homosexual unions or any live in situations is against God and morality.  They are an attack on marriage and chastity.

At the same time, the Church must do more to educate the people so that hate crimes would not occur.  While we may not agree with homosexual unions, this does not mean that we should sit back as we hear reports of homosexuals being beaten down or killed.  Like the Good Samaritan, we must stop and help the stranger even if that stranger does not share our same views.

Homosexuals are God's children as well and we must pray for them.  Any violence or hatred against them is an attack against God.

***UPDATE 2/6/2013***

As I suspected, Archbishop Paglia's words were misconstrued by the media.  The Archbishop was shocked at how the media "derailed" his comments to mean something he did not intend.
