Pope Francis has indicated that he believes it is no longer appropriate for Catholics to treat gay people like second rate humans.
If we decide to stop teaching self-hate to Catholic gay kids at St. Stanislaus, Cotter and both St. Maryís, then what will we teach them?
I propose the following affirmation from the people of God to all the beautiful gay kids in Winona:
When God looks at you, he endorses your existence with love.
The love you experience is his gift to you.
It is a gift to be appreciated, enjoyed and celebrated.
