LGBT Christmas Mass Cancelled in Hong Kong

An LGBT group alleges that the last-minute decision came after comments by the Hong Kong diocese’s Bishop on the sinfulness of homosexual acts.

A priest in Hong Kong called off a Christmas mass for 30 LGBT Christians after an auxiliary bishop described homosexual acts as “violations of chastity,” according to the Hong Kong Free Press. 

Members of Compassion HK LGBTQ Catholics Union said that Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Ha cancelled the service at the last minute, adding that they felt that Bishop Michael Yeung had ordered the move. 

A spokesperson from the Catholic Church said that Yeung had not been involved in the decision. 

“Bishop Ha communicated with the relevant persons, and pointed out that the Catholic Church considers homosexual acts as serious violations of chastity,” the spokesperson told the Hong Kong Free Press. 

Compassion HK LGBTQ Catholics Union voiced its disappointment with the cancellation on Facebook. 

“Are homosexuals not fit to join in the annual celebrations on this peaceful and holy night of Jesus Christ’s birth?” the group wrote. 

Instead of the mass, the members held a “ceremony of gratitude,” the Hong Kong Free Press reported.

God never done sex and never get marriage = Holly / No Sin

Anyone do sex is Sin, both marriage and without marriage.

Now, marriage become capitalized
To get Holly Brand or free from Sin, People can buy letter ticket

Legal Marriage just selling ticket Letter to heaven, or Letter of Sin forgiveness by Human, not by God. It is capitalism.

but for those getting legal marriage they are keeping in Sin for any sexual act. because God never do sexual therefor no Sin.

The Hong Kong free press article is much more balanced. Fridae is only feeding botwild's insanity.

The auxiliary bishop is not the absolute authority on Catholic morals. If he is supposed to follow his faith seriously, then he should defer to Pope Francis who according to the Catholic faith is higher than most humans and who himself said that the Catholic faith should welcome homosexuals into the body of Christ. Even if he personally finds homosexual acts to be sinful, is he qualified to judge. Even Jesus, the only perfect human being does not judge. What makes him a sinner qualified to judge on others. His stand is disgusting. He does not follow what he preaches.

Does the church believe the phrase "Love Thy Neighbor ." literally?

The Catholic Church's refusal to ordain gay priests spell of hypocrisy. Technically, priests are people who have given up the sex act. If the Catholic Church views homosexual acts to be sinful, why bar gay priests who have given up the sex act. By not ordaining gay priests, they are indeed recognising that there are people who are gay and homosexuality is not a choice. They are indeed discriminatiog against people who are born and created by God in that way.
