In March 1997, after attending a National Symposium of the New Ways Ministry that was held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I learned that children as young as 4 and 5 years of age know that they are different. This feeling “different” is only identified in their adult years as being gay. However, the harmful influence of antigay social and religious norms -- in particular, for Catholics the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings -- are severe and are lasting throughout a child’s lifetime. The harmful effects are not isolated only to these children who grow up to be gay, but affects their families, siblings, friends and anyone who they might consider special in their life. It is a prescribed societal sentence of implicit isolation, which places at risk of suicide so many innocent adolescents and young adults. It stifles an enormous amount of human potential in the world that otherwise could be put to use for finding cures for diseases, offer better ways of maintaining peace among people and improve the quality of living for everyone in the world.Read more:

…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6
Important note: No disrespect meant to Pope Benedict XVI or the hierarchy, the one and only concern is the safety and well-being of children.
