The only way I can see things are O.K. in accordance with Gospel teaching is:
One man + one woman, grow to love each other and remain apart sexually and not living together.
They get married before God and then produce children naturally and bring them up in accordance with Gods' teaching.
That is the ideal and anything other than that is deviant or a sin.
correct. I would only add that
1) it is not an abstract "ideal", but what God commands to those he doesn't call to a higher marriage.
2) it is important that we understand that sins have degrees of gravity and that the kind of sins we're discussing here are very different in themselves
. If we fail to understand why, we risk misunderstanding the meaning of sexuality even in its ordered
realization within marriage.
Hello again Fabrizio, Friends,
I was thinking about this at work today and thinking of ALL
forms of unnatural sexual activity:
Sexual self gratification
An unhealthy attachment to animals
All these are against nature and grossly wrong and there can be no excuses for it.
There are enough heterosexual men and women in the world to grow to love and cherish and marry properly and with decency and respect. Those who cannot fulfil the requirements should stay chaste and single.
Looking at the list above, we heterosexuals are also guilty of breaking the laws of nature one way or another and in my opinion some of THESE disordered acts can feed one or more of the others and become grossly distorted.
Each one of these acts stop the perpetrators and participants of living a Holy and blameless life before God and de-activate healthy development of the people concerned in living ordered and safe and loving lives.
The reason I was thinking about it at work was because one of the young men has openly admitted in the past that he looks at pornography regularly on the internet with his wife and thought it was great. He thinks it is ok as he shares it within the confines of his marriage. That is a lie for a start as he was spreading his own 'gospel' to others that it was ok.
I overheard his telling this to someone else nearby. This young person has two young children and he swears every other word almost.
I asked him if he swears in front of his mother and he said sometimes.
I asked him if he swears in front of his children and he said never.
I asked him if his wife swears, and with full pride he said only in front of himself.
I said "what would you do if your children started swearing" and he said he would not be happy about it as they are only children. He would expect them to swear when they grow up as thats what 'men' do.
My disagreement with him continued that surely right was right and wrong was wrong so if it is wrong for children, then surely it is wrong for adults.
To go back to topic, I am not convinced that homosexuality in necessarily
inborn, and I believe it is possibly 'bred' by social culture and the erroneous tolerance of it.
I think this is often used as an excuse to continue this EROTICA.
We can all find our own sex attractive; I would love to wake up one morning and look like the very beautiful Ingrid Bergman for example and I think she is gorgeous but I certainly would not wish to share a sexual relationship with her or any woman.
Society has become so degraded with filthy talk, and I dont mean swearing, I mean discussions and chats about the sort of things porn participators do in videos etc.
It is accepted as 'normal' when in fact it is actually nothing more than debase filth.
Swearing as an example can feed the weakened mind into thinking these things although 'socially acceptable' in current society are also morally acceptable which they are not and can in instances of loneliness and under intoxication become the norm to take things a step further.
I know what I am saying is extreme, but the fruits of these sins speak for themselves. Some persons stray to the much worse deviations which can destroy a childs' life forever and others stick to the deviations which are 'legally' ok, either by bad education about these things or getting children to participate in their sexual preferences.
As for Homosexuality PRACTICES,
I have read the Catechism which was refered to by Fabrizio and it is very clear,HOMOSEXUALACTSare
and I would personally like to add that because these perversions are often carried out in a secularised society away from heterosexuals (because we do not tolerate these ACTS
openly unless we approve of them, the people who practice these acts are more likely to be exposed to further deviation to fuel and feed their EROTICA
, leading to further distortions and sexual plagues in our society.
People of God who receive Jesus Christ into their being via The Eucharist must NEVER practice these ABOMINATIONS, for that is what they are, and Christ has nothing to do with evil.
With Love in Christ to all, especially non - practicing homosexuals in our Holy Community.
May Our Lord help you through this for the rest of your lives.
With Love in Christ,
