Check out this latest video from Fr. Claude Burns aka Fr. Pontifex, a rapping Roman Catholic priest slash American hip hop artist from the Diocese of Evansville, Indiana. Inspired by Blessed John Paul II’s call for a “New Evangelization,” he embraces the use of many different types of media to reach people with the message of Jesus Christ. In partnership with Spirit Juice Studios, here's the latest video presentation on homosexuality from his series Spoken Word.
The topic of homosexuality and the issues around same sex marriage are very charged in our culture right now. The goal of this video is to communicate what the Church teaches about this topic. However, as the title would suggest, the underlying sentiment throughout the whole presentation is that the Church is a refuge of love for all of humanity. Those that would say that the Church is "anti-gay" are either misinformed or deliberately distorting the truth to push their own agenda.
For all those who watch this video please understand that the lasting message of "Yes To You" is to let you know that right where you are, with all of your questions, challenges and struggles that the Church indeed says yes to you. You are welcomed and you are loved. We are all in this together.
