Quote of the Day

It is simply not true that “the Catholic Church” is hostile to LGBT people. Instead, we have a church with a split personality. On the one hand, a handful of unrepresentative, unelected bishops with no personal experience of loving, sexual relationships, formulating responses based on abstract theological formulae. These are the ones making the headlines. On the other, ordinary Catholics representing the real Church, who know from experience in their own families, the importance of inclusions and authentic respect for all.
