Novus Ordo Blogger Ponders if Celibate Homo Partnerships could be a “Valid Vocation”
“Elizabeth Scalia is a Benedictine Oblate and the Managing Editor of the Catholic Portal at Patheos. She is an award-winning writer and a regularly-featured columnist at First Things and at The Catholic Answer Magazine. Thus says the biographical snippet at her blog, The Anchoress. It continues: “Read her books, Strange Gods: Unmasking the Idols in Everyday Life and ‘I Don’t Want to Be a Hoo-er’ (*And You Shouldn’t Want to be One, Either), with Foreword by Cardinal Timothy Dolan.”
Get ready to face-palm: On July 16, 2014, Ben Conroy posted an entry at Scalia’s blog in which he publicly ponders the question whether “a committed, lifelong, celibate partnership between two gay people [could be] a valid vocation, a holy thing, a place where virtue and love might flourish”.
