FRESNO, Calif. (ChurchMilitant.com) – Local Catholics in the diocese of Fresno, California are outraged over a workshop on homosexual inclusion during the 2018 Fresno Diocesan Congress. In a letter to Bp. Armando X. Ochoa, Fresno Catholics expressed “disappointment and dismay” that a workshop titled “Becoming a Welcoming Parish to LGBTQ Persons” would be included in the conference. The letter further stated that Catholics are:
mad and upset and cannot believe that this is going to be presented as something good for the church. I hope you reconsider and think about what the damage will be. Catechism teachers, Confirmation, RCIA instructors and many others are going to attend and then take it to their parishes, thinking that, that is the teachings of the Catholic Church.
