A sharing by a Catholic priest on homosexuality

Posted by: Plume
Date: 17 April 2007, Tuesday

Time: 730pm

Venue: Free Community Church

The Catholic church calls homosexuality an "objective disorder". A disorder because obviously it contravenes their moral sensitivities because the bible (and hence, the church) says so. And objective because there is no leeway for interpretation. For example, if you were to get involved in a car accident that results in a fatality, there is no arguing that someone has died. Similarly, if you've engaged in homosexual sex, you can't deny that it's not real sex because you are straight.

So where does this leave us gay Christians, or Catholics? Do we hide in the closet whilst living a double identity, pious Christians on Sunday, and heinous men-loving deviants the rest of the week?

Safehaven is proud to present a session of intimate sharing by Fr. Albert Renckens, Dutch by birth, Singaporean by residence (of over 30 years), and Catholic by religious beliefs. Learn about his personal opinions on homosexuality, and ask him the hardest question of them all: "is it ok to be gay and Christian?"

Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to understand the Catholic's church's stand on homosexuality. A must for Christians from all denominations!

About Cat Welfare Society and NANAS

Cat Welfare Society
Its mission: "To Save Lives Through Sterilisation".

"The Cat Welfare Society is a charity dedicated to promoting the effective and humane management of the community (stray) cat population in Singapore.

It recognizes that the presence of a large community cat population can be a source of problems, but believes that the best way of keeping the population in check is not by trapping and killing them but by sterilising them.

Michelle Lee is the current president of the Society and has been with the Society since 2003, first as a volunteer and subsequently as a committee member.

Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary (NANAS)
Their mission is to provide a safe and secure home for the animal residents where they can live out their lives in happiness and eventually, die with dignity. To this end many of the animals are allowed to free run, and we create a natural settings for the others, more often than not resorting to using natural materials around us for example, bamboo stalks and attap.

Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary (NANAS) is one of the few private animal sanctuary which started in Singapore in 1995. It moved to Johore located in Pekan Nanas in June 2000 to an area with 10 hectares of land.

Noah's Ark CARES (Companion Animals Rescued & Education Society) was established in June 2005 to continue its work in Singapore. It runs educational program for schools, Project Catsnip and Project Industrial Dogs to help manage the population of stray dogs and cats.

Lynda Goh has been a volunteer with Noah's Ark since March 2002 and she has been working with animals for the last 20 years. Come hear how Noah's Ark got started and what it is been doing now. And how Noah's Ark Cares runs it programmes for stray dogs and cats.
