Regarding the arrest of three preachers for proclaiming the Word of God (“Northern Irish Gospel Preachers Arrested by Gardai to Stand Trial in Republic of Ireland After Preaching Against Homosexuality,” October 2, see link below), some logic must be applied.
If – as the majority of LGBT characters probably do – you don’t believe in God or an afterlife, then it should just be a matter of preferable duck return water!
However, if they give some recognition of the afterlife, then a reminder that eternal bliss awaits those who are faithful to their baptismal promises and this trumps any supposedly earthly promise of gratification, and therefore is an act. of kindness.
In the example given by Saint Paul to Saint Timothy in 2 Tm 4,2, the call to a radical adhesion to Christ must be said for true happiness to be realized!
