Should I Attend My Cousin's Same-Sex Wedding?


  • Jane AlversonMarch 27, 2014

    Laura should host her own Thanksgiving dinner and invite everyone and let the chips fall where they may- don't leave it to "Aunt Sue" to host- start her own family tradition. Mary McLaughlin: If you love someone, you don't encourage them to commit a sin that will keep them from Eternity with Jesus, our Lord. We are not to judge the state of someone's immortal soul- but we are required to judge someone's sinful actions and do as Jesus did by imploring them to sin no more. Look up "Courage" an organization for Catholics suffering from same-sex attraction and who live by the tenets of the Catholic faith.

    Mary Beth, thank you. I'm going to archive this for the times I know will come in our family's future, too. Peace, Heidi

    I am finding it very difficult to listen to people that claim to love the sinner but not the sin. Put yourself in the position of a gay person and you would feel differently. If you have a gay child you love and accept them! You may feel heartbroken because you know that all through their lives people will discriminate against them and it is NOT an easy life. Shame on the so-called Christians that are NOT practicing their Christian faith. God is love and he who abides in love abides in God..and God in him. Peace. Don't judge.
