Father of all mercy,
We thank you for this season of grace and light.
We know that sin has blinded us.
Draw us ever closer to you, in prayer and penance.
Since you, O God, are light itself,
Give all your people a clearer understanding
Of what is sin, and what is virtue.
Grant in particular that we may see, as never before,
The profound dignity of every human life,
Including the vulnerable unborn children.
Give us grace to defend
Our brothers and sisters in the womb
By our prayers, our words,
And our self-sacrificing actions.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
This question includes two assumptions:
1. That people are born gay.
-You can give me all the sources you want that say some gene is responsible, and I can give you all the sources I want saying it’s not. (Let me point out on the side that even if you are born with a certain trait, such as alcoholism, that doesn’t make it ok)
2. That people against abortion (mainly Christians) don’t want gay people to live.
-Where did you get that idea? Those few people that hold “God hates fags” signs don’t in any way represent Christianity. The main message of Christianity is love!
In conclusion, we fight for the right of everyone to live. Homosexuality is a completely different topic, and homosexual actions are believed to be wrong by Christians. Does this mean we want to hurt or kill homosexuals? Of course not. Does this mean we even dislike homosexuals? No.
