Priest in Union

By digitalgrace
Father John Joseph Reid and Father Lawrence Turner are Catholic priest that fell in love with each other and married in Massachusetts. They now preside over the New Devine Mercy Catholic Communities. The opening statement of their website is listed below.

In imitation of Jesus Christ, we welcome all people to worship and celebrate God's all-inclusive love with us. Whoever you are, where ever you are in your life, we thank you for choosing to be here with us today. Our Mission: To Extend God's Kingdom of Justice, Truth, Love and Peace. [link]

More than 1,000 people attended a rally at Fort Lauderdale City Hall protesting the passage of Amendment 2 in Florida and Proposition 8 in California, which discriminates against LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender/transsexual ) people in The United States of America.

The protests were part of the “Join the Impact” [link] campaign to have a synchronized reaction of outrage across the country because of the passage of laws in Arizona, California and Florida defining marriage as an institution between a man and a woman only.

Proposition 8 in California and Amendment 2 in Florida have become a symbol of the struggle for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights. It is also argued the laws will restrict rights to heterosexuals who are domestic partners and not married.

Joe Biden is corrupt and senile.

This is the diocese that has ignored Biden’s support of abortion, one that Bugnini was particularly influential in.
That man is the modern arch-traitor, and Satan needs a fourth mouth to chew him with.

"Leviticus 18:22 King James Version (KJV)

22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

King James Version (KJV)"
Its in black and white!

That they learn the error of their ways!

1Corinthians 13:4 - Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
1Corinthians 13:5 - does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

Parade itself - Does LGBT still do those parades?
Puffed up - LGBT Pride
Seek its own - Do I need to clarify?
Not provoked - Ever been called a Homophobe over the simplest of disagreements?

I always find it fascinating how you lot twist everything to fit your victim complex. Not provoked? What a wonderful fantasy land you must live in.

Well they will stop to be Catholical priests but never excommunicated or excomulgated God is for us all

I'd like to make a comment here, and I thank you ahead of time for giving me a chance to do so.

First of all, if these men are practicing homosexuals and are married, then they are no longer considered valid Roman Catholic Priests.  They are automatically, through the power of Canon Law, excommunicated from the Church of Rome.  There is no such thing as a valid, married homosexual Roman Catholic priest.  I also noted in one of the comments below that there is a fully Catholic Church with female priests, gay and lesbian priests and married priests but it is not under the rule of Rome.  If it is not under the rule of Rome, it is not a true Catholic Church.

To date, the Roman Catholic Church under the rule of the Vatican, still does not allow females, married males, or homosexuals to participate in the priesthood.

This is great to see. #1 Many Catholic priests are gay anyway and in the next few years more of them will come out. 

#2 There is a valid Catholic church operating in most parts of the world that allows female priests, gay and lesbian priests and married priests. It's called "The Old Catholic Church." 
A fully Catholic Church not under the authority of the Vatican.

Thank you for the meaningful photo and lots of thanks for Father John Joseph Reid and Father Lawrence Turner.
I am guessing the main catholic church excommunicated them
Catholic Church actually has no problems with homosexuals, though two PRIESTS marrying would get them removed from the priesthood, they wouldn't be excommunicated.
PeteSeeger's avatar
They were defrocked for marrying when they were priests, which is against the law of the Church.
