Ab-so-lute-ly!

I don't know about that... It'd be one thing if he were an active homosexual, but he isn't. And he wasn't strictly homosexual before his reversion; he was apparently bisexual. But all that goes to why I think homosexuals should be able to be honest about who they are and what they struggle with. You say parents have a right to know -- but I've heard other trads (the toxic types) go on about how homosexuals should just shut up about it and suffer in silence. I find that repulsive, something we'd wish on no other group with a psychological disorder.

Homosexuality isn't a sin at all; it's a disorder. Acting on homosexual desires is sinful.

Most homosexuals aren't pedophiles, and many heterosexual people are. I don't think for a minute that Mr. Voris would ever do anything like that. I trust him. I believe he's repented and is a celibate man.

Now, if I knew of a pedophile, I wouldn't; trust him around my kid, not for a second (not alone, I mean. And I wouldn't even be really comfortable with him around my kid at all because the thought of anyone even lusting after my kid would be sickening).

I got news for you guys: forgiveness does not mean we need to grant him license to keep doing what he's doing or forgo the appropriate and necessary response to these revelations. There are consequences that he has refused to accept as part of his past sins, namely that he has no place leading any religious discussions, or leading any kind of lay apostolate which grants him a position of authority. In an ideal situation, the local Bishop would insist he step down and remove himself from all self-appointed positions of influence. But we don't have that luxury.
Do your due diligence.

I don't buy any of that for a single second. I used to be a wild child and a HALF when I was a teenager, and there's no way I'm not called to be doing what I'm doing with FE. St. Paul used to murder Christians, for crying out loud!
