True North "nucleus" and Republican Party BPOU Chair of Senate District 35 Cindy Whitehair, aka Lady Logician doesn't like Nick Coleman's column going after Archbishop John Nienstedt for his anti-gay animus. Later in a post on True North, she linked to this post.
Now I can not speak to the Catholic Catechism as I am not a Catholic. However, I have enough Catholics in my life that I have been exposed to enough to know that Nickolae is wrong again! Nick obviously has not read his Old Testament or if he has he conveniently skipped over this passage.
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.
That is Leviticus chapter 20 verse 13 and the emphasis is mine. Merriam Websters Dictionary defines abomination as "worthy of or causing disgust or hatred". A sin "worthy of or causing disgust or hatred" is considered to be a grave evil which the Archbishop says homosexuality is IS. Doctrinally, there is nothing out of line in what the Archbishop said!

Thanks for making this so clear Lady Logician. The Lady Logician definitely seems to be part of the Leviticus Crowd.
The Lady Logician also contributes to the Senate District 35 Blog "The official blog of the Senate District 35 (MN) Republican Party BPOU" and AntiStrib of "Dirt Worshiping Heathens" fame.
From the True North Biographies:
The Lady Logician
Cindy Whitehair (aka the Lady Logician) is a self-described "soccer mom" complete with the mini-van. She shares the Logical Household with her husband, son and two dogs Lucky the worlds best border collie and Captain Jack (Sparrow).
A native of the Chicago area (motto - vote early and often) she escaped to "God's Country" 13 years ago. She still carries a couple of Chicago habits (a love of the Cubs and the Bears) but in almost all other aspects has become "Minnesotan" including the accent!
She began blogging in 2005 when she was invited to join "The Savage Republican". After blogging there for a year, she struck out on her own and has been typing away ever since. Besides blogging, she is active in the Minnesota GOP as a volunteer and BPOU Chair and as a 4H adult leader.
I wonder what Senator Claire Robling, will think of her BPOU Chair's post.
