Some People Just Need a Good Slap

I have no idea what planet, or what drugs, this Canadian senator is on, but someone needs to slap her so she returns to reality. We do not need to ask, "What would Jesus do?" in regards to same-sex "marriages." Scripture is VERY clear in stating that homosexuality is a disorder attraction. IT IS NOT GOD'S WILL for Adam and Steve, or Eve and Aida to have sex together, let alone call their relationship marriage. It is a tragic consequence of Original Sin that there is disorder in Creation. While baptism restores our friendship with God, even giving us Sanctifying Grace which is the Divine Life (as long as we do not lose it again through mortal sin), not all the effects of Original Sin are canceled out. Within the human person, our emotions are often chaotic, our intellects dimmed, and our wills weakened. We call this concupiscience. While not sinful in and of itself, it can lead us into sin. That is why God offers us Actual Grace, however we must "fully rely on God," (F.R.O.G.).

Fr. Tharp, what do you call that form of marshal arts you are developing to deal with heresy? Isn't there something you call the "holy, spin kick to the head"? I think some people need a demonstration.
