    Perhaps a "life partner" and "spouse" are not necessarily the same thing.  I don't know.  The website does contain videos from EWTN and other Novus Ordo sources.

  • Life partner can imply a pervert relationship. Best to use the Catholic word, spouse, if that’s what this is.  P.C. speech is deliberately ambiguous.  A life partner could be a business partner, a service animal, a pet, a platonic friendship, almost anything.  It doesn’t necessarily mean for a lifetime.  It could mean a partner for the present life, to be changed at will later on.

  • I'll give OP the benefit of the doubt since the phone number he posted is from Nigeria, +214. English might not be his first language, so he might not have the right words for everything.

    There's also a lot of scammers on the Web, so you never know.

  • The term is from the website the OP links to.  It appears that the website is based in the Netherlands, not a country known today for its orthodoxy.

  • The use of that expression is deliberate.

    Quote
    Queer and Catholic: A life of contradiction, is a new autobiography by a gay Catholic man in the United Kingdom who recounts his developments in sexuality and spirituality and where those two areas converged.  The book is by Mark Dowd, a former Dominican friar who left religious life to pursue a career in TV and radio journalism, initially with the BBC and now as an independent freelancer.

    (. . .)

    4. Your story is so personal and filled with particular details of your individual life. What do you think are some of the elements or emotions from your story that will resonate with other LGBTQ Catholics?

    There are so many. For example, trying to make sense of the gospel message is one. It is puzzling to hear all the words about one’s sexuality being “disordered” and yet realizing that for Jesus, this was a nothing issue, not mentioned even once (in fact sex is fairly minor..he seems much more preoccupied with social justice for the marginalized and targeting hypocrisy and empty legalistic religious practice.)

    I also think the search to build new family beyond one’s immediate familial surroundings is a common experience, as is the struggle to find a relaxed intimacy and acceptance in a life partner. The alleged “instability” in LGBT relationships can perhaps be traced in my generation (I am 58 now) to feelings of disapproval and self–doubt that we pick up at an early age and perhaps never quite fully overcome. It may be self-deception when we say “we are over it” when there are still lingering wounds and sores to reckon with that perhaps stem from childhood.

    2 Corinthians 4:3-4

    And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.

  • From the Novus Ordo:

    "Father" James Martin: How parishes can welcome L.G.B.T. "Catholics"

    8. Invite everyone on the parish staff to welcome them. You may have a welcoming pastor, but what about everyone else? Does the person answering the phone know what to say to a lesbian couple who wants to have their child baptized? At funerals, are the gay adult children of the deceased treated with the same respect as other children? What about the teacher in a parish school who has two fathers coming to a parent-teacher conference? How does a deacon treat the father of a gay man who just died and who wants a funeral for his son? Are gay and lesbian Catholics welcome in bereavement groups when a partner dies? Is your parish open to the children of all couples, not just straight couples? Are the children of lesbian and gay couples welcome in parish schools, educational programs and sacramental preparation programs? Is your parish staff educated in the full range of church teaching on nondiscrimination and pastoral outreach?

    2 Corinthians 4:3-4

    And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.

  • Thank you, trad123.  I think you've definitively demonstrated that the website is run by evil people and blasphemes the Blessed Mother.  It is definitely a place that Catholics must stay away from.
