Homosexuality

Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • On October 13, while serving as interim head of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Cantu stopped a pro-gay “Mass for Dignity” offered at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. The mass, which had been going on for 15 years, was being offered by liberal priests for DignityUSA, a pro-homosexual organization that wants to change Church. In a letter addressed to the parish priest, Cantu said the mass “continues to send conflicting messages about the Church’s official teaching concerning the proper celebration of the Eucharist and living an active homosexual lifestyle.” (Chron)

Abortion politics

Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • In 2017, Bishop Cantu signed a letter along with several New Mexico bishops condemning Catholic politicians in New Mexico who support abortion and physician-assisted suicide. The letter said these politicians “do not represent” the Catholic Church’s teaching and that their actions “publicly separates a person from communion with the Catholic faith.” (Abortion politics)
