A Catholic bishop urged Thomas Aquinas graduates earlier this month to be ” politically incorrect,” he instructed them to stand up for the Christian vision of marriage and sexuality.
Bishop Robert C. Morlino, of Madison, Wisconsin, told graduates of the Santa Paula, Calif. private college “the voice of reason heard in our culture “amid” the darkness of our world,” The College Fix reported.
“The people of today have learned to be offended, people live to be offended. That is why they need a ‘safe space’ and a ‘cry cabinet,’ and what they mean by that seems to be a space where they can be safe from hearing the voice of reason and truth,” he said. “If you speak the truth, you would not be safe.”
Speak fundamental truths of today requires courage, Morlino told them.
“So let’s be politically incorrect, such as the St. John the Baptist, the patron saint of the political incorrectness,” Morlino said, pointing to Pope Paul VI in the 1968 encyclical Humane Vitae, which addressed the Catholic Church’s teachings on sexuality and birth control.
Morlino pointed out that artificial methods of contraception, such as abortion, sterilization and birth control are all condemned by the Catholic Church.
“The primary purpose of sexual union is the procreation of children; that is what it is; and that is the reason why birth control is wrong because it frustrates the purpose of the sexual union,” Morlino said.
He followed up by telling the graduates that they need patience to find common ground, because the Catholic Church, the teachings of the sound as a foreign language for most people.
