Usually on my Facebook page things are pretty calm, but every once in a while the conversation gets very heated. I do have to give everybody credit for keeping things civil though.
I'm usually the one who loses it and has to walk away from the computer! When I return, those with clearer heads have prevailed and the conversation dies down. That's when I post something funny. It clears the air and everyone seems to go back to being happy Catholics.
Gay or same-sex marriage is the current divisive topic among Catholics. After I posted this article the proverbial sh*t hit the fan.
Afterward, Michael Voris' video arrived in my mail box and one of my readers found this article for me: Homosexual So-Called "Marriage."
I don't know if either the video or the article will change anybody's mind. Both gave me some clarity as my emotions and anger were getting the best of me.
From my own point of view, I would never defile what someone else deemed sacred. If I walked past a Mosque, synagogue or a church of a different denomination other than Catholic, and saw a sign that said something I didn't agree with, I would keep walking. It is their right to put their views on their property as they see fit. I would not call them and threaten them.
It's called freedom of speech and the right to worship as we see fit and I pray we're not losing it.
