"One of the people I admire most in the world, who I regard as an inspiration and, very likely, as a saint was a gay guy who lived here in Seattle named Perry Lorenzo. You can get something of a sense of the man from his blog. Dunno if he was celibate or not...Some Catholics (and some of my gay readers) will probably be surprised to hear that I’m not interested in whether or not he was celibate. Not my business. That’s between him and God. (I had a reader write me in some degree of scandal after I posted on his death because he apparently had a partner he lived with."The author of the post criticizing Shea, linked first above writes, "The fact that Mr. Lorenzo was openly homosexual and was known to have lived with another man is a matter of serious concern not to mention a source of scandal....Mark Shea is advancing a false idea of compassion."

More Mark Shea Nonsense: False Compassion
I was debating whether or not to post on the latest nonsensical post by the Catholic "apologist" Mark Shea. Two others have beat me to the punch, and have done a nice job of pointing out Shea's errors, so I will just refer you to the blog posts found here and here. As I have pointed out before, I would not recommend learning your faith from Shea. Here is another reason why.
