Comment on Politics of the Pope Visiting Britain in 2010 Poll by Joe.

The website, says,

” People are subject to a wide variety of sinful desires over which they have little direct control, but these do not become sinful until a person acts upon them, either by acting out the desire or by encouraging the desire and deliberately engaging in fantasies about acting it out. People tempted by homosexual desires, like people tempted by improper heterosexual desires, are not sinning until they act upon those desires in some manner. ”

Nick Clegg doesn’t agree with that, but he cannot think it is OK for people to act upon their improper desires. When he says, “I don’t agree,” he must be saying he has different ideas about what constitutes an improper desire. But how does Nick Clegg decide what is proper and what is improper? Clearly he does not take his lead from what the law says. For example, adultery is legal, but Nick Clegg cannot think it is OK. If he did, he would not have made his wedding vows in a Catholic church.

It is not at all clear how Nick Clegg can square his very publicly expressed political views on homosexuality with his private duties towards his family. Surely his wife would not be happy for their children to be adopted and brought up by practising homosexuals? Nick Clegg, for his part, when he married his wife, will have been asked to promise to help to bring their children up in the Catholic faith.

How can he fulfil that promise, and maintain his integrity, while publicly opposing Catholic Church teaching on homosexuality? He says, ” My wife Miriam is Catholic, my children are being brought up in her faith.” Nick comes across on the TV as a genuine enough fellow, so we mustn’t assume that he had his fingers crossed when he made his wedding vows, but how else can he explain this conundrum?
