    Canada: Homosexual altar-server sues bishop for dismissal

    LifeSiteNews has the developing story:
    Jim Corcoran, the owner of one of Canada's largest and most lavish spas, has launched a human rights complaint against the Bishop of Peterborough Ontario for refusing him permission to continue to serve as an altar server.

    Corcoran admits that he is homosexual and lives with another homosexual man, but says that he follows the Church's teaching and lives a chaste lifestyle. According to the Catholic Register, Bishop Nicola De Angelis asked Corcoran to accept his decision that he not serve on the altar based upon the bishops' desire to avoid public scandal.

    Corcoran is seeking monetary damages of $25,000 from the bishop and $20,000 each from 12 parishioners who complained to the bishop about Corcoran and his roommate having been invited by the local priest to serve on the altar at Masses.
    The matter is tricky because Corcoran claims to be living chastely with his live-in boyfriend.

    If that previous sentence didn't quite make sense to you, you're on to something. Corcoran would be an object of scandal if he was a heterosexual man claiming to be living a "chaste lifestyle" with his live-in girlfriend. The fact that he is an open homosexual exacerbates the problem.

    As I've said before, the homosexual agenda cannot be reconciled to biblical Christianity, and the two movements cannot co-exist peacefully in society (they certainly do not appear to be co-existing well now). This episode, to my mind, is one more case which proves the truth of that claim.
