Catholic Bishops Approve Guidelines for Ministry to Gays

Catholic Bishops easily pass the Guidelines for Ministry to Persons with a Homosexual Inclination. They may have succeeded in pleasing no one...

Comments:
I am pleased with the guidelines. Very balanced.
 
I only wish there would have been individualization. Some people would profit from therapy designed to change sexual attractions and some would not but the guidelines seem to say there is no obligation to go into it. I wonder if people will read this as pessimism.
 
Saying that there is no obligation to try it is not the same as saying that it doesn't work. I thought that there was a statement saying that some have found it helpful. That sounds like a mild endorsement.
 
Anon: "Some people would profit from therapy designed to change sexual attractions..."

Do you have any data to back this up or is this just your personal opinion?
 
Let's see, I have a disorder, I can't take communion if I've had sex with my lover because our love-making is a sin, I have to be celibate, and I can't tell anyone about being gay except for close family and friends. I feel more welcome already!
