The Patrick Madrid Show: June 10, 2024 – Hour 3

Patrick guides a caller who is grappling with a crucial question many Catholic Christians face today: how to love and appreciate individuals without endorsing their lifestyle choices that contradict Church teachings. How do we interact with homosexual individuals and those struggling with alcoholism without condoning their actions, especially when children are involved. Patrick delves into the importance of distinguishing between celebrating a person and celebrating their actions, drawing from Biblical wisdom and practical approaches to navigate these delicate situations.


  • Mark – I don’t think that we can talk to the LGBTQ community about this. All the priests I talk to say that we need to talk to them but we can’t until they change their ways. This is confusing a lot of people. (00:54)
  • John (email) – You are disingenuous in your debate with Fr. Mike Schmits and it wasn’t a real debate (06:44)
  • Aldrina – Is the Sabbath on Saturday and not Sunday? (10:59)
  • Albert – God saved two animals, male and female, not male and male, not female and female. (22:40)
  • Mary – What does it mean that “Rahab was cut into two”? (24:31)
  • Tracy – I am a nurse and I see such a high rate of sexually transmitted diseases in those who are living the LGBTQ lifestyle. It’s not something people talk about enough. (27:51)
  • Cathy – As a Catholic, how do I celebrate someone who is gay without celebrating their beliefs? (36:47)
  • Janice – Why is it that Biden is allowed in the Catholic Church when he is promoting all of the things that we disagree with? (46:58)
