Extramarital affairs are wrong. This has nothing to do with what we believe in God. The parents and the church leaders handled this SO badly, not even thinking if the child. Only their own reputations.

I listen to podcasts all day at work. I’ve probably never gasped so many times during a broadcast. My ex was in his last year of seminary when the church found out he was gay and living with a man. After a return from a break, his students were different to him: things would be scrawled on the chalkboard, names called under breath, etc. He reported the harassment by students and ostracism by staff to his elders. He was told that he chose this lifestyle and Therefore have to except the bed comes with it. And that he should probably leave and not become a priest. He was told that by Father, and one day Cardinal, Mahoney.
