Given the Catholic Church's stance on homosexuality, Dean Spencer doesn't think it treats gays with dignity ("Catholic 'dignity,'" Forum, Nov. 18). Gay men or women are treated with respect and dignity.
The Catholic Church teaches that all people with that sexual orientation are called to be dedicated and participating followers of Christ. If you are married, single or have taken solemn vows, you are obliged to stay close to God at all times, having the Ten Commandments as one's trajectory. The relativism Spencer promotes is not an option.
Intrinsically evil acts are never anything but evil: abortion, homosexual marriage, human cloning, stem cell research and euthanasia. These things will never be approved by the Catholic Church.
