Military Archbishop slams “Not legitimately Catholic” pro-homosexual group

The Catholic News Agency is reporting that His Excellency Timothy Broglio, Archbishop for the Military Services, has received a letter from a group calling itself “Catholics for Equality” urging repeal of the “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” policy, the Archbishop for Military Services responded that the group “cannot be legitimately recognized as Catholic.”

Catholics for Equality had requested a meeting with Archbishop for the Military Services Timothy Broglio, claiming he offered misleading and false arguments in his June 1 statement against allowing open homosexuals to serve in the U.S. military.

In a Sept. 20 statement responding to a CNA inquiry, Archbishop Broglio said the Archdiocese for the Military Services has a clear position on a change in the present policy concerning the service of persons who “openly manifest a homosexual orientation.”

In a June 1 statement, Archbishop Broglio opposed the policy change, saying moral beliefs should not be sacrificed for “merely political considerations.” He said Catholic chaplains can never condone homosexual behavior.

Catholics for Equality is just another cover for those dissidents trying to destroy the Catholic Church. & Bishop Broglio is just calling them as he sees them.

I've been a huge supporter of Broglio's for some time now. The work he does with our troops is stunning and his defense of the Church is clearly intelligent and yet accessible to almost everyone. I can't praise his work enough.
