LifeSite has some interesting ideas on what is "anti-gay"

The ultra-orthodox Catholics at LifeSiteNews.com seem to think that anti-gay means that you do not accept the Church's teachings on sexuality. According to those, gay people are “objectively disordered” and gay sex is “intrinsically disordered.” These teachings are stated as fact. The Church teaches that we should all be chaste or emotional eunuchs. 50% of priests are sexually active. What makes them think that gay people want to be celibate? Well, I suppose that there is Ryan T. Anderson. One of these days even he is probably going to get laid (and stop being so utterly miserable).

According to LifeSiteNews:

People who are attracted to the same sex are so much more than their sexual attractions. Our sexuality is just one part of who we are; it’s insulting to reduce people to the sum of their sexual attractions. Those in the Church who do this do a disservice to those who experience same-sex attractions and those who seek to understand and journey with our brothers and sisters who do.
Try saying “gay people.” People with same-sex attraction is an effort to reduce a sexual orientation that they do not approve of to something akin to alcoholism or a bad habit. While I agree that we are more than our sexual orientation, our sexuality is at the core of who we are.

Bishops and prelates like Bishop McElroy, who don’t speak about the harmful spiritual, physical, and emotional effects of sexual sin and seemingly condone it through ambiguous statements about supporting the “LGBT community,” are putting souls at risk.
That is something that we will never know to a reasonable certainty.  We don't seem to communicate with souls.

It’s “anti-gay” to not proclaim the Church’s teaching, because the Church’s teaching on human sexuality is compassionate, loving, and offers all people the true path to flourishing and joy.
So calling us disordered is joyful? Seriously?

The “anti-gay” bias in the Church comes from groups that encourage Catholics and others to engage in harmful behaviors that many who have “been there, done that” will tell you are anything but fulfilling.
So being accepting of diversity reflects an anti-gay bias? Do you folks actually read the drivel that you write?
