A refreshing post – pointed out by a mutual friend – brings evidence of a new understanding of human sexual differences in the U.S. Catholic Church.

 There is little doubt that Catholics in the U.S. will be more forthcoming on the inclusion of LGBTI people than those in other countries. As has been shown by Provinces of the Anglican Communion, people in the churches of North America are more up-to-date in their knowledge and acceptance of humanity’s amazing variety – including their innate sexual differences. We are all sinners together – children of God and heirs of God’s Kingdom.

In the U.S. Archdiocese of Newark, Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin

is obviously ready to champion the cause of radical inclusion of ALL people into the congregations of his archdiocese – leading the way for others to follow.
