Tonight is my last night attending Mass at my local church. I will be moving on, as we lycanthropes do, after I take care of some business that is.
Our priest was – is - considered to be great in the community; but I don’t mean great with the sword. He doesn’t kill for God, at least not as far as I’m aware (although that would be pretty cool). He is more of giver to those in need. He helps charities, finds housing for the homeless, and things like that. His door is always open to his flock, and he knows me well. We’ve spent many an evening debating Arianism, Jesuits, and such things (usually to a Joe Pass record – he really likes jazz guitar). But it so happens our beloved priest has had some very negative press published about him lately, about so called felonious acts – felonious in the world of men, that is. Worse is that these same acts he has allegedly engaged in possibly violate divine teaching.
How do I broach this touchy subject a bit more? I suppose I’ll go back to my handy Bible. Whenever I’m in doubt I can always turn to it. Isn’t it astounding that its scriptures, written in ancient times, can be interpreted for dealing with modern-day problems?
As I’ve already written, God loathes wickedness. This topic naturally (or should I say unnaturally?) leads us to the topic of homosexuality, among others.
Genesis 38:8-10, an amazing scripture/verse, records God blowing up a dolt for committing coitus interruptus. That means the unlucky guy ‘pulled out’ when lying with his lady. Anyways, this lesson from Genesis says so much more if you care to look. It should be completely obvious to any reasonable person (or werewolf) who reads it. What I mean is this scripture succinctly instructs us on the following: no condoms, and no pulling out. If a guy who lies with his lady does not plant his seed in her then no creation is possible. This is wicked. Duh. Therefore one can so easily deduce from this that homosexuality is infinitely wicked. Period. Homosexuality is like the steroid version of not trying to pro-create, okay? Not good enough evidence? Then take Leviticus 18:22, too.
Well, this is where our priest is mired in a bit of controversy.
Turns out that some little boy is accusing the priest of committing an abomination on his person in a confessional booth. Remember: the Old Testament proscribes gayness. I guess I cannot be plainer than that. The media is calling our priest a pedophile. How it hurts my heart. The poor priest.
