So this gem from the Christianity site is currently being displayed on HNQ:
I'm not one to try to prevent religious people from discussing ... whatever they want, amongst themselves.
But can we at least not promote the rejection of the identities of 2 groups of people for how they were born, across the entire Stack Exchange network? Especially given that those identities are affirmed by science, and supported by Stack Exchange, as far as I know.
Maybe religion isn't the best candidate for HNQ?
If someone were to make a similar claim to "the sin of homosexuality" outside of religion, that would certainly be in clear violation of the code of conduct, and it would likely get downvoted into oblivion and deleted long before mods have to deal with it. Bigotry shouldn't be given a free pass just because it's part of religion.
Edit: maybe it would be sufficiently respectful and considerate to change the title to:
According to Catholic teaching, is it acceptable for a priest to approve of homosexuality and affirm transgender identity?
The current phrasing takes it as given that homosexuality is sin, and suggests that even approving of it may be sinful.
