Cardinal Javier Lozano Barraga, Mexican Cardinal and President Emeritus of the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Health Care Workers in the Roman Catholic Church, has declared that there are no homosexuals or transsexuals in heaven. If they want heaven, they have to change their sexual partners to members of the opposite sex.
Barragan stated that homosexuals and transsexuals “will never enter the kingdom of heaven and it is not me who says this, but Saint Paul.” They are, he explained, an “insult to God.”
He went on to explain that “[p]eople are not born homosexual, they become homosexual, for different reasons: education issues or because they did not develop their own identity during adolescence. It may not be their fault, but acting against nature and the dignity of the human body is an insult to God.”
The Cardinal, however, encouraged people not to try to punish gays themselves: “Homosexuality is therefore a sin, but this does not justify any form of discrimination. God alone has the right to judge. We on earth cannot condemn, and as human beings we all have the same rights.”
It is not clear if Chris Pesto has a sign for the Cardinal.
