Ironically, indeed. In a discussion on a forum for LGBTQ clergy, a man who represents himself as a Catholic priest and theologian, and who describes himself as an “LGBT ally,” recently called me a “snowflake” for objecting to the terms 'depraved' and 'disordered.’

In a bit of weirdly dissonant argument, he instructed me that taking offense was my own fault, and that I just needed to get over it.

Love thy neighbor, indeed.
