What is This Talk About? - Same sex marriage and the origin of homosexual desire ? these are issues that are highly debated in our culture today and topics that most of us choose to avoid. We hear persistently what the media says, what politicians believe and what is ?politically correct?. But the real questions for Catholics are ?What does the Church believe? and ?On what truths are these beliefs based??
In this hard-hitting presentation, Dr. Tom Curran will answer these questions and bring clarity to the Catholic teaching on human desire. This teaching will open the eyes of parents, grandparents and educators to the dangers of what can happen when God?s intent for desire is confused with the politically correct messages of our culture. In addition, Tom will arm us with practical tools to help protect our children from the errant messages and temptations that surround them.
* WHAT TO EXPECT *: ? A better understanding of Catholic teaching regarding marriage and how it is defined ? An understanding of God?s intent for desire and how He intends for us to respond to it ? To be empowered as a parent to better guide and protect your children ? To learn how to speak clearly and compassionately about the Church?s teaching ? Bring a friend or family member that has questions about these issues. Appropriate for everyone ages 18 and up.
