Fr. Michael Rodriguez and Church doctrine on homosexuality August 18, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Basics, General Catholic, scandals.

A reader sent me a link to a fairly extensive interview with Fr. Michael Rodriguez, a Catholic priest in the El Paso Diocese that garnered quite a bit of attention with a strident defense of Church doctrine regarding homosexuality.  A TV station in El Paso conducted an interview/debate with Fr. Rodriguez and an El Paso gay rights activist.  Unfortunatley, I cannot embed the video, but you can watch the 25 minute debate here.  When I saw the cassock, I knew Fr. Rodriguez had won.

Here’s a bit more of Fr. Rodriguez that I can embed.  I think it safe to say that this is my kind of priest!  Some may say he’s just a bigoted gay-baiter, but I believe he loves Christ, the Church, and those with homosexual inclinations so much he cannot do anything but present to them the pure, unadulterated Truth revealed by Jesus Christ through His Church.  Fr. Rodriguez says as much in the interview.  It’s worth your time to watch.

Speaking of, my birthday is next week, and to treat myself we’ll be at Mater Dei again.  Yay me!

Wonderful message by a faithful young priest. I am grateful for Fr. Rodriguez. It gives me some confidence that the future bodes well for the Catholic faithful with good and holy priests like Fr. Rodriguez.

Thanks for making us all aware of Fr. Rodriguez and his truthful stand on the gay issue.
