Excerpt from Joseph Farah’s opinion piece on World Net Daily: “But I want to return to this constant refrain from Daly that homosexuality is not a super sin. He has said it over and over again in trying to explain why Focus rarely touches on the subject any more. Recently, in another interview, he said: “I think one of the great tragedies of our time is we’ve set this up as some super sin or super debate about homosexuality.”

It raises the question, “Who said homosexuality is a super sin?” No one that I know. A super sin to me is one that, perhaps, is unforgivable by God. That is certainly not the case with homosexuality. In fact, it is true of only one sin, according to Jesus – the sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit.” In other words, Jim Daly is setting up a straw man argument.

March 22, 2013

Excerpt from the article “Psychiatry’s New Normal: ‘Transgendered’ Persons” in the National Catholic Register: “BOSTON — The term “gender identity disorder” has been eliminated from the new edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s official guide to classifying mental illnesses, known as the DSM-5.”

“Whereas previously a man who ‘self-identified’ as a woman (or vice versa) could have been classified as mentally ill, now the DSM-5 uses the term ‘gender dysphoria,’ which means it is only a mental illness if you’re troubled by this self-identification. Elated activists in the ‘LGBT’ community had lobbied the APA for the change for years.”
