Catholic church and gay marriage : Bishop: Homosexuality is fine; some of the Apostles may have been "gay"

Need some proof that satire is dead? Or, if not dead, nearly impossible to pull off in this age of "I'm gonna top this insanity with even more insanity!"? Consider this news account of a Catholic bishop "insisting that being homosexual is not a sin [and saying] it’s possible that one of the twelve apostles of Jesus was gay or that Mary Magdalene, another key New Testament figure, was a lesbian."

Hold on to your lunch and seat before reading further:
Bishop Juan Vicente Córdoba of Fontibón, Colombia, also said the Catholic Church does not oppose same-sex couples making a life together, but does not consider such arrangements to be a marriage or a family.

“No one chooses to be gay or straight,” Córdoba said. “One simply feels, loves, experiments, is attracted, and no attraction is bad.”
No attraction is bad? Strictly speaking, having an "attraction" to something or someone is not, in itself, a sin—but that doesn't mean it isn't disordered. Or that it shouldn't be regarded as such. There are obvious examples: adults being sexually attracted to children, for instance. "Experiments"? Is this a Catholic bishop or "sex expert"/pervert Dan Savage giving a talk to students? The piece reports that "Córdoba reiterated Church teaching when it comes to marriage – that it’s a union between a man and a woman, permanent, and open to children – he said that homosexuality isn’t a sin."
