How have you sinned my child? pt.2

I have never been one to impose my opinion on another person,  I have never made an effort to make my views become that of another person. We are all able to formulate our own stances, we are all able to come to logical conclusions as to why we believe what we believe. I currently live in Modesto, CA and I attend St.Joseph Parish out of of convenience, not by choice. It’s literally down the street from where I live, and my mom likes that. In the previous year, I liked the camaraderie among the church goers, the support they provide for one another even if it is only for an hour every Sunday. However, pre-election time, the head priest at St.Joseph’s took the time usually designated for the sermon, to advise the congregation that the marriage of two homosexual people is like marriage between a human being to an animal. He continued on, as the voting time drew near, to warn the people that voting for a man that condoned birth control, wanted establishments of Planned Parenthood, and also allowed a woman’s right to choose whether or not she wanted an abortion, was a sin against God. Furthermore, he warned the parish that if you planned on voted for the two “evils” then  you must change your mind and plan on going to confession. The head parishoners urged us to join them in their rally for Prop 8 every weekend as D-day drew near. Flags, bumper stickers, and those ground posts poster things were available by the front doors of the church.

I didn’t say anything against what the beloved priest was saying. I didn’t say anything when Father Ilo corrected the way to bow before receiving Communion. I didn’t say anything when he requested that no one wear jeans to church. When Father Ilo said the marriage between two homosexual individuals was a disgrace to the sanctity of marriage, I didn’t rebut him by asking if he thought heterosexual couples were doing a great job at keeping true to what marriage really is. Marriage is a bond between two people, under God, with the primary job of procreating. So I ask you, what if a woman is unable to bear children, she should not be allowed to be married, by the church’s standards. A man, who is unable to create children should not be allowed to get married. Both people have no intention of procreating, therefore they should not be allowed to wed. Marrying people who are barren, is it like marrying people to animals? Are you a hypocrite? When it comes to homosexuals, separate but equal right? That’s usually how hate spreads in America.

Furthermore, I said nothing when Father Ilo said all TRUE catholics should not even think twice about birth control, should not use it, should not think about it, should not even be available. If you are of the Catholic faith, you should not use condoms, you should not use birth control, you should not use Plan B, because you should not be having sex in the first place. That would be great if we didn’t live in the world we did today, and I guess that’s partly in fault to Planned Parenthood, but if you are a girl who has ever used a condom, pills, or Plan B, do not say that you are Pro-Life because you are a hypocrite. I mean rape, incest, financial stance, physical and mental conditions of the mother, or severe medical complications couldn’t be any reason to have an abortion. But don’t get me wrong, there are some irresponsible girls out there who just use abortion as a way out, but that doesn’t mean ALL women are like that.

Hypocrisy runs deep in the Catholic religion, which is why Church and State should be separate. Beloved Father Ilo sent out a letter to all parishioners, and it’s been causing quite the commotion. It’s even been featured in the town’s paper, and I honestly believe Father Ilo thinks he’s doing the right thing.

I’m glad the same man who wished everyone a bountiful and happy Thanksgiving, is the same man who said gay marriage is the same as beastiality, and any form of birth control is wrong. I’m glad.

Yours truly,
