EL PASO - It's no secret where the Catholic Church stands on homosexuality.
Still, a recent column by a local priest - father Michael Rodriguez is stirring up a lot of debate.
The father called homosexuality evil and said that any catholic who didn't actively oppose it was committing a sin.
While his editorial was blunt, it isn't shocking.
However his comments do come at a time when a record number of people are leaving the church because of this issue.
