In their recent document called "Ministry to Persons with Homosexual Inclination..." the USCCB state the following regarding the baptism of children:

"The document also reaffirms the Church's forbiddance of homosexual couples adopting children. However, it does say that the baptism of such children is a matter of pastoral concern and can only happen if there is a "well-founded hope" that the children will be raised Catholic. "

But baptism is NOT allowed in the following situation:

Legitimately married straight couple.

More than one child.

One spouse takes the children to mass every week. Prays with them every night. Teaches them the Faith as best as they can.

The other spouse was raised protestant and anti-Catholic. Not a church-goer. Decent person otherwise, but hates the Church, and refuses to consent to a Catholic baptism.

So in a situation where a true effort is made, no baptism. But two queers who "claim" that a child will be raised Catholic, oh, they're ushered right in.

What's wrong with that picture?
