Introduction to the Fight over Homosexuality

“Evil may have its day, but to God go the weeks and the years. It must ever be so.”

~Father Eugene Fahy, S.J.


When the battle over contraception began in earnest in the 1920s, virtually all Christians decided to “sit it out,” reasoning that birth control would not affect them personally. When the abortion revolution started three decades later, most Christians felt that they did not need to join the fight for the same reason.

The conflict over so-called “gay rights” is entirely different in nature. Christians may choose not to use birth control or get abortions (although they are being forced to involuntarily support them through their taxes). But Christians are now being compelled by the power of government to not only tolerate homosexuality, but to actively support and even celebrate it. Dozens have lost their jobs just for expressing disagreement with the homosexual agenda on their own time.

And the situation is rapidly becoming worse.

The absolute corruption of the mainstream media has led to a dramatic swing in public opinion on “gay rights.” Since the media will simply not allow any dissenting voices to be heard, most people incorrectly believe that 10% of people are homosexual; that “gays” were “born that way”; and that they are under constant threat of lethal violence from “bigoted homophobic haters.” There is only one way to fight back against these lies, and that is with one-on-one education.

In light of recent events, all Catholics should equip themselves to discuss and debate the issue of “gay rights,” since nothing else poses such a direct threat to our God-given freedoms. To begin with, we should understand that the “gay rights” movement really does have an agenda, and that it actually does demand rights that no other group of people possesses. This is why pro-family activists generally use the term “special rights.” We must also be familiar with the scientific case against the redefinition of marriage.

To begin with, we must recognize that a homosexual orientation is not sinful in and of itself. Homosexual urges are similar to other human weaknesses in one way: they constitute an unnatural and unhealthy manifestation of our fallen natures, much like an excessive desire for drugs, money, food or alcohol. We are not sure why the Lord gives people such crosses to bear, but we certainly grow in virtue if we confront our weaknesses and, through His grace, defeat them.

A same-sex attraction will only cause damage to a person’s soul (and body) if he acts on his impulses, in the same manner that an alcoholic does no damage to himself until he begins to drink in excess.

Homosexuals who are chaste and who successfully struggle against their urges through a lifetime of self-discipline carry a very heavy cross indeed, and we should admire them.1 So the mere fact that someone has a homosexual orientation does not mean that he or she is a “bad” person.

Why We Must Oppose the LGBT Movement

At first glance, it may seem that Christians and other people of good will should support equality for homosexuals. After all, Jesus Christ taught us that we should recognize the equal dignity of all human beings.

However, when considering this point we cannot be superficial thinkers. Certainly all human beings deserve our love and respect simply because they are human beings, regardless of whether they are a law-abiding citizen or a thief, homosexual or “straight,” male or female. Homosexuals, simply because they are human beings, deserve the same authentic rights that everyone else possesses, including the right to vote, the right to free speech, the right to freedom of religion, the right to hold a job without unjust discrimination, and the right to live their lives in peace and free of violence.

When we examine the special rights agenda in detail, we find that it is not just agitating for equality, because homosexuals already possess equality under the laws of the United States. As we will see, the militant homosexual agenda is a clear threat because it demands a superior position in our society.

A minority of homosexuals―primarily the well-funded activists―demand rights that:

  1. violate the natural law, as in marriage and adoption rights
  2. interfere with or supersede the authentic rights of others, such as free speech
  3. place the homosexual on a privileged plane not enjoyed by others, such as demanding that all who oppose them be fired from their jobs and be ostracized by society.

While we support authentic human rights for all, it is essential that we oppose the special rights movement. It not only represents a clear threat to public health and safety, it has proven that it will ruthlessly crush even those who oppose it in good faith.

In other words, it is an extreme danger to democracy and the free expression of ideas.

10 Facts for the Debate about Homosexuality

There are ten specific and logical reasons why every authentic Catholic (or really, anyone) should oppose the homosexual special rights movement.

1. The “Gay” Lifestyle is Unhealthy

The first and most obvious is that it is a public health catastrophe. Those concerned with people’s health oppose activities that significantly and adversely affect the health of a large group of people, such as smoking, drunk driving, or illegal hard drug use. But very few have the courage to speak out against homosexual activity, which is the most efficient disease transmitter known to humanity.

hiv virus - the debate about homosexuality

The HIV virus

Even if there were no moral implications whatever connected to homosexual activities, as the special rights agitators claim, we must continue to actively oppose the “gay agenda” because it is so terribly unhealthy.

Up until about 1995, sexually active “gays” and lesbians lost an average of 25 years from their life spans. Because of the development of new drugs and treatments, this gap has been narrowed to about a decade. However, even if homosexuals eventually match the general life span, anyone who has to remain on a heavy regimen of powerful drugs for the rest of their lives cannot be considered healthy by any definition.

Many reasonable people oppose unhealthy activity for its own sake, regardless of moral arguments:

  • Alcoholics lose an average of ten years from their lives and are frequently a menace to other people’s lives and health (thousands of people are killed by drunk drivers every year in the USA alone).2
  • Heavy smokers lose an average of 6.5 years from their lives.3
  • Drug addicts lose an average of ten years from their lives and are frequently a menace to other people’s lives and health (thousands of people are killed or injured by the criminal activities of drug addicts every year).4
  • Extremely overweight individuals lose an average of 6.5 years from their lives and often severely impact the lives of others (thousands of overweight workers die of obesity-related causes such as heart disease every year, leaving their loved ones destitute or scrambling to survive).5

Reasonable people discourage heavy drinking, smoking, illegal drug use and obesity because they drastically shorten people’s life spans and are a menace to society and other individuals. Why do we not oppose the “gay” lifestyle, which shortens life spans even more, and is a menace to the health of society and other people?

2. The Homosexual Agenda is Predatory

The second reason we must oppose the “special rights” agenda is that it is ruthlessly predatory.

Hundreds of thousands of young boys have been sexually molested by homosexual Protestant ministers, by homosexual public school teachers, by homosexual Boy Scout leaders, and by homosexual Catholic priests. Leading homosexuals have confessed that child sexual molestation (“man-boy love”) is at the heart of “gay rights,” and major medical journals have published studies showing that homosexuals molest children at an incredibly high rate.6

3. The LGBT Rights Movement is Coercive

The third reason we must oppose the special rights movement is because it is relentlessly coercive. Its members persistently lobby legislatures and clog courthouses demanding their own rights, but feel absolutely no regret as they relentlessly coerce and compel others to accept and even celebrate their lifestyle.

Hundreds of gay rights and hate crimes laws have been enacted at all levels in the United States. Some “first world” governments are now forcing churches to hire and protect homosexuals, even if doing so violates their most cherished beliefs. Governments are forcing people to rent to homosexual “couples,” even if the property owners can demonstrate that their religious beliefs are being violated. Increasingly, opposition to the special rights agenda results in terrorism directed against individuals and organizations.

4. Gay Rights Oppose the Rights of Others

Fourth, the special rights movement completely disregards the rights of others. As they complain that they are being oppressed, homosexual activists violently attack Christians, disrupt church services, vandalize churches and threaten that they may legitimately use any means to achieve their goals―even murder!

Leading homosexual activists have vowed to kill, maim, and murder in their quest for special rights. Any movement with a significant contingent of people who believe that they are exempt from all of the rules that govern the rest of us must be opposed as a matter of principle, because if it gains sufficient power, it will be absolutely despotic.

Under special rights laws, homosexuals are granted a superior legal standing. Colleges give preference to homosexuals in legal disputes, housing authorities usually side with homosexuals against “straights,” and “hate crimes” can only be committed against homosexuals―but never by homosexuals. Finally, only “straights” are subject to “sensitivity” (i.e., brainwashing) sessions―when was the last time you heard of a homosexual activist being forced to take sensitivity training?

Special rights laws, by their very nature, are discriminatory and give one group legal protection that other groups do not enjoy. This protection is based solely on the preferred group’s behavior. Such laws can only cause resentment and backlash and create a proliferation of case law that itself leads to judicial and legal logjams, conflicts, unfairness and confusion.

5. The Gay Rights Movement is Violent

Fifth, the “special rights” movement is extremely violent. When a government gives a group of people a false “permission” to engage in any kind of promiscuous sexual activity, such coddling eventually leads to a complete loss of self-discipline. This inability to control oneself naturally leads from sexual misconduct to total disregard for all of the ordinances of both God and man. Activist homosexuals commit many more violent crimes in general than the rest of the population, as we will see.

Homosexuals are also much more likely to commit suicide or to meet a violent death themselves than are other people, and the homosexual “lifestyle” has caused “gays” to lose fifty million years of productive life in the United States since 1985.7

6. The Homosexual Lifestyle is Addictive

Sixth, homosexual behavior is strongly addictive. Homosexuals quickly become addicted to their promiscuous sexual lifestyle, and their behavior meets all points of the medical criteria for addiction.8

depressed man head in hands

By legitimizing and protecting such behavior, governments enable individuals to become more and more immersed in the homosexual lifestyle to the lasting detriment of both themselves and society. Significantly, homosexuals also suffer from a greatly increased rate of cross-addiction to alcohol and drugs.

7. Homosexual “Marriage” Damages Society

Seventh, the special rights movement damages society. To elevate homosexual unions to the same status enjoyed by the family is to degrade and even ridicule the status of the traditional family. To place ersatz homosexual “marriages” on the same moral and financial footing as “traditional” marriages will adversely impact society in a profound manner, because when evil is officially placed on the same level as good, society in general gradually loses the capability of distinguishing between good and evil.

“Traditional” marriage is in bad shape indeed, but the solution is to fix it, not to dilute its meaning. Homosexuals who justify marriage between two (or more) men and two (or more) women by pointing at the sad state of man-woman marriage are falling into a logical fallacy. This is like saying that a car’s transmission is shot, its windshield is broken, it burns oil like a furnace, and its muffler fell off long ago, so let’s fix it by slashing its tires!

The problem is not the Sacrament of Matrimony, the problem is people’s lack of commitment to it.

The implications of redefining marriage are obvious. Such acceptance will inevitably lead to a further degradation of the institution that has always been the foundation of every healthy society. Already, polygamists are demanding marriage rights―and, believe it or not, so-called “zoophiles” are insisting that they should be able to marry their pets!9

And why not, if two men or two women can get married to each other?

8. Homosexuals Are Not a True Minority

The eighth reason we must oppose the homosexual agenda is that “gays” are not a legitimate minority. All minorities that have, until recently, achieved protection under the law are defined by race, sex, and national origin―not by their sexual urges. To give a group special protection just because it feels or acts differently from other groups simply makes no sense.

Since courts place great value on legal precedents, this will throw open the doors for any group that defines itself based on a shared identity to claim civil rights protection.

This type of legal end-run has already been attempted by organized pedophiles like the Rene Guyon Society and the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA); by organized prostitutes under the banners of Cast Off Your Old Tired Ethics (COYOTE) and Johns and Call Girls United against Repression (JACGUAR); and, of course, by pornographers, including the purveyors of child pornography. Once homosexual “marriage” becomes enshrined in law, can a train of other atrocities be far behind?

9. Homosexuals Already Enjoy Equality, And More

Ninth, the special rights movement is completely unnecessary if its true goal is equality. As a class, homosexuals earn more, travel more, are more highly educated, and own more material goods than any other subgroup of the general population. As far as violence is concerned, only one in 77 homosexuals is ever the victim of a hate crime.10

The special rights movement does not really aim to free homosexuals from oppression, because they are already free―the objective of the movement is to give homosexuality and homosexual acts an exalted and privileged place in society.

10. The “Gay” Lifestyle Is against the Will of God

The tenth and most important reason we must oppose the homosexual agenda is that it is opposed to the will of God. The Metropolitan Community Church (originally entitled the “Sodomy Church,”) the Unitarian Universalists, and many other ultra-liberal churches claim that homosexuality is compatible with a good spiritual Christian or Jewish life. However, both the Bible and the Talmud explicitly condemn homosexual acts.

bible open

The Bible clearly condemns homosexuality as a “hateful thing,” and uses Sodom and the sodomites as a standard of evil against which all sinful activities are compared.

Anyone who says that Jesus and the Bible did not condemn homosexual activity is ignorant, self-deceiving―or just plain lying.

Although liberal Christians and Jews have warped their original faith teachings beyond recognition to suit their own purposes, those who faithfully adhere to the correct and original teachings will recognize that homosexual activity is one of the greatest evils in existence and must be fought.

The homosexual rights movement categorically rejects any and all limitations on its behavior and social entitlement. It is virulently anti-Christian and rejects self-discipline, love of others, and even love of God.

It is not an exaggeration to say that authentic Christianity and the special rights agenda simply cannot coexist.


A slumbering Christianity is the homosexual activist’s best friend. The only reason that the special rights agenda has advanced so far in such a short time is that the Catholic Church has largely remained silent. Sure, we have some solid bishops and priests speaking out against the homosexual movement, but we must remember that we laity are 99.9% of the Church, and the vast majority of the work must necessarily fall to us.

There are forty million adult Catholics in this country, which should be terrifying to the Culture of Death. If only ten percent of these people spoke out strongly and absolutely refused to be silenced, the homosexual activists could not win.

Are you one of the “ten percent?”

As John Nantz has written, “Find your voice and see what God will do through you; or sit idle and silent as the pagan voices howl, lose yourself in distraction and awake to the burning pyres of liberty lost.”

    While I can see that the statements in this article do have credibility I am always confused with the balance of Jesus words to love others as we would want to be love ourselves. Also “love the sinner and hate the sin” in the issue of homosexuality. As a psychotherapist for over 20 years and a committed Christian for 50 years I also believe that it is not condoned by God and does not fit into the natural order of life, however as a person with friends who are part of the gay community I find it is very refined line that I have to walk in fulfilling the two above commands of Jesus.

    Much like the Feminist Movement of the 60’s the foundations of both movements is self love, and not self sacrifice, something that is becoming evident in our earthly family in all nations.

  2. William Maxwell on November 27, 2020 at 9:37 AM

    This is an excellent essay! Particularly the Fact #1, which no one wants to acknowledge – the fact that practicing homosexuals have a life expectancy lower than that of smokers. True compassion would be to discourage homosexual behavior, not accept it and certainly not promote it.

    However, there is one more very important point to make under Fact #7..and that is:

    The institution of gay “marriage” changed the perception of the sexes as one where they are complimentary to one where they are interchangeable. If you can swap out a women for a man on the top of the wedding cake to partner with another man, then you can swap out women for men in any situation. Because of this disordered mindset you can extend this concept interchangeability into having men allowed into women’s bathrooms, men allowed to join women’s sports teams. This has become a nightmare for women and promotes societal disorder. This mindset has also led to this idea that sexuality can be fluid and not determined by biology. This of course has resulted in the accepted idea of gender dysphoria, now causing young children to undergo sex changes through hormone treatments and surgery – many times without parental consent. This is the madness and suffering all brought about by legalizing gay “marriage”. This has to end.

  3. Neils Dunn on December 25, 2020 at 6:46 PM

    As a pretty liberal fair-minded individual, I found myself agreeing with at least 6 of the points made here. There are additional questions are still befuddling about the LBGT.
    1. Why is it that when a group has an anti-view on LBGT, they are considered a hate group? In our society, are all people supposed to love or endorse this movement or else be demonized as a hate group? The seems to be one step away from bullying. Everyone does not have to like pepperoni on their pizza hence why we have different types toppings or should we hate people that do not like pepperoni?
    2. Why is 4 ( or 5 +Q) groups of people combined into a single group? Is this to increase their numbers? Jews, Muslims, Blacks, Catholics, Republicans, Democrats, etc. account for all different people and walks of life (which some include LBGT). Are these LBGT groups unable to stand on their own as a single letter abbreviation? Which lends one to believe the numbers for these groups are indeed smaller then what the make themselves out to be.
    3, Why is this group not honest about the the origins of LBGT numbers for all?
    a – Some use this as an option for a failed heterosexual relationship.
    b. Some people feel forced into this life because of a violent situation involving a sexual crime. Rather than heal the individual from the crime, it looks like preference is to garner more numbers.
    c. Then there is the most unspoken atrocity – when people from LBGT group specifically seek out straight, heterosexual or underage individuals during their period of puberty in order to ‘convert’ them. This is repulsive, especially when targeting children.
    d. The group tends to silence people that have re-embraced a heterosexual life after experiencing the latter. If LBGTs ask everyone for tolerance, why do they also not practice tolerance themselves?
    e. The EEOC still reports that most of the complaints are based on race and gender not sexual orientation. In actuality, there are more people that believe they have been abducted by aliens than LBGT- is everyone else a hate group that believes otherwise?

    4. If one donates earned money to a group that does not condone LBGT, which is a legal non-profit organization under the same laws that grant same-sex marriages, why is this considered hate? It’s so bad, that LBGT want to consider the SALVATION ARMY as a hate group because the group does not condone this position but has never denied service to an LBGT member.

    It’s gotten so bad, recently a court allowed two women on the birth certificate of a child (go figure) – Remember ‘be fruitful and multiply’ or ‘honor thy mother and father (not partner)’ -hard to do if both are the same sex. this is taking a very strange turn of things
    5. Why is MAN medically recreating gender as if it were a lab rat? The question speaks for itself.
    In conclusion, tolerance has to be a 360 degree word for all. Avoiding the facts leads people to further an agenda rather than truth. We live in a world where people do not see eye to eye on all aspects of life. Jews, Muslims and Christian faith organizations all still coexist despite different beliefs and walks of life. Embracing positive rather than forcing ones view is healthier for life and the soul for everyone not just the few.

    I grew up in the Catholic Church – I renounced it many years ago because of this kind of rabid ideology. Your misunderstanding of homosexuality is quite remarkable – not to say dangerous. You are peddling nonsensical misinformation in the name of a so-called Christian perspective – this is shameful as you are perpetuating the kind of hate speech that negatively impacts directly on the lives of LGBTIQ people.

    • Jackson on October 14, 2021 at 1:47 PM

      While I appreciate the diversity you bring (literally it made me very happy to see someone else that agrees with me) I’d like to invite you to leave the violent language out. Words like “rabid” and “nonsensical” feel like attacks and create division where we need to foster understanding. Like I wrote below this is just an invitation. Please don’t feel like I’m forcing you to do as I say.

      You can’t read a real bible and not see God finds homosexuality detestable. Even cross dressing in Deuteronomy is condemned. And again from your post if you don’t support homosexuality it must be hate speach. Your post seemed more hateful than this article.

  5. Mike on May 10, 2021 at 3:57 PM

    An excellent article. I’m very impressed by how folks like you, who write articles like these, keep yourselves cool when discussing such topics. I was once tolerant enough to advocate for those with same-sex-attraction, then I lived among “their” neighbourhood(s) and the tolerance turned to dust… at that time I could only write nice and clean, dissenting thoughts and comments on “social media” until they were, in turn, turned to dust by the very platform owner(s) who claim to provide freedom of expression.

    I have literally been driven — DRIVEN — to talk as horrible about those who are unrepentant of the vile same-sex attraction(s), and their supporters. (Their supporters must be included in any discussion about the issue, as they sometimes behave even more sinful than the vile sinners, and they contrive all manner of nuisance in society.)

    As for me, I’m surrounded by the “progressive” insanity 24/7 and I’ve had enough of it. I thought it may be only my city of Toronto, but after some rounds around Canada it seems to be a ubiquitous thing, inescapable. I cannot continue in this land; I cannot continue to earn or to even hope for, and therefore strive for liberty and happiness.

    I am sad to say that Canada, which was once a fine country, has betrayed me and worst of all it has betrayed God.

    (I couldn’t help but get a grand laugh from that previous comment there by “philip browne on January 23, 2021 at 4:48 AM”)

    • Jackson on October 14, 2021 at 1:42 PM

      Can we keep the “laughing” out of this? Philip expressed an opposing viewpoint. I’d like to ask that you respect that and let it be instead of “laughing” at it. Just an invitation. Please don’t feel like I’m forcing you to do this. That’s really not my intention. Just inviting.

  7. Jackson on October 14, 2021 at 1:33 PM

    I find this very interesting… I see where you’re coming from on many points but at least assume if the major ones have major flaws that aren’t addressed. On the issue of gay lifespans being statistically shorter, you seem to imply that this is largely from STDs. Perhaps you have data about the cause of premature deaths, but as you’ll remember from math class on averages of all you have is a mean lower lifespan, there’s no way to know why it’s lower. I would conjecture that the man lower life span is primarily caused by Gay suicide which is caused by gay people feeling hateful towards themselves. I understand that my conjecture has the same flaw as yours, but the point is that without further information you could not know whether the gay lifespan really is shorter, or whether the statistical difference your seeing is caused by a feeling of self hate caused by society’s or close friend’s and family member’s attitudes towards being gay. Therefore the gay lifestyle may not be any more than straight lifestyle. There are many kinds of STDs.
    Next on gay marriage, I don’t understand how this is not asking for equality? In your argument you assume that the gay lifestyle is evil. I respect that you believe that, but I simply don’t. The only reason you wrote about is the unhealthy lifestyle which I touched on above. Other than that of course is your Religion. You are free to practice your religion, but I believe it is wrong to force it upon others. You can talk about it with others of course. For me the distinction comes with the force. Laws are the best example of the force that could be used. So, you can behave that gay lifestyle is wrong, but that’s no reason to make it illegal to marry who one wants just as straight people can.
    I completely agree that gay people should not have more rights than straight people. I believe in consistency. If we bribe in freedom, everyone has a right to freedom even if you disagree with them. If you believe in equality, everyone has a right to equality. Of course predatory behavior is wrong, but it’s not inherent in being gay. I know because I’m gay and I’m definitely not predatory. I have strong morals that mean I will never do something without someone else’s consent.
    To conclude, I know I didn’t touch on every point you brought, but the main one is this: we all have the freedom to choose how we want to be in the world. Please continue to uphold your beliefs. I never want them to change. Please line your life however you want. I won’t tell you not to. All I’ll do is talk to you about what I believe and try to understand what you Bernie so that our perspectives can meet and we can grow. But I won’t force you. Just please don’t try to force your beliefs on me. Let me enjoy all the same freedoms and rights you have ( that does include marriage). After we are legally equal the only work left for the gay rights movement is in the talking, the meeting and the understanding. I oppose any superiority of gay people. I agree with you there. Just please don’t try to take away our right to marry who we want.

    With love,

  8. lori on November 8, 2021 at 3:43 PM

    This is exactly the kind of hate that keeps homosexuals from exploring Christianity. The words you speak are so harsh and dehumanizing. Homosexuals are human with feelings as well. Have you ever considered all the mistranslations of the Bible; A book that old in which was written in an ancient, pretty much forgotten language, is bound to have mistranslations. Why don’t you speak of other sins talked about in the Bible? Such as eating pork or certain types of meat, cutting or braiding your hair, shaving, to wear tampons/pads, masturbation, etc? To promote yourself as a truly devoted Christian with these such hateful views make me sick to me stomach. God gives no man or women to deem someone to hell, and that includes you. Exactly what are the statistics of homosexuals dying earlier? None of your ‘substantial’ points were provided any evidence. God not Jesus forbade homosexuality, as someone who has went through pretty much all translations. In Matthew 8:5-13, where Jesus heals a man, the Greek word ‘pais’ , which has many translations, could either be used as ‘gay-lover’ or servant; funny how the word pais is only used in a romantic/sexual connotation when referring to men. Please do your research yourself. I do pray you are healed of all this hatred in your heart.

    My thoughts about your 10 Facts for the Debate about Homosexuality paragraph.

    -It literally took me not even five minutes to google if LGBTQ+ have a shorter lifespan than people who are not in the community and guess what it’s not true. People do use drugs but everyone probably did once drugs. Like caffeine, alcohol or nicotine as an example. I did it and you did it too. It’s not their problem or your problem it’s a problem for the society. You sexuality doesn’t define if you do drugs or not. They may use more drugs than you but they probably experienced more worse situations than you. Imagine that just for who you are, you get beaten up or even killed. Like you somehow have to manage this situation.
    -It’s a shame of you to assume that every predictor is gay. Other sexualities with multi gender attraction exist too. Girls get raped too by Protestant ministers, public school teachers, Boy Scout leaders and priest. It’s not a problem in the LGBTQ+ Community, it’s a worldwide problem, even in countries where same-sex attraction is illegal.
    -I’m not gonna defend pedophilia. There are people who rape kids and do illegal stuff in the internet. There are people who are pedophiles and never touched a kid or watched child porn. Please don’t write like every pedophile raped and sexually abused a kid. Rape and sexually abuse children is NOT okay and should not be tolerated in any form.

    • Pietro on March 29, 2022 at 5:30 PM

      Don’t even think of spewing BS homosexual propaganda. Also, considering that you admitted to being a pedophile, why should I believe you about what sexual deviants are like? If you think it’s okay to be sexually attracted to children, you are sick in the head. And no, he’s not saying ALL pedophiles are homosexuals, he’s saying that pedophiles are disproportionately homosexual, and that homosexuals are MORE LIKELY to be pedophiles. The sources you went to don’t even cite any solid evidence. Also, admit it, Google absolutely LOVES to censor conservative viewpoints. They hide links to articles expressing conservative viewpoints all the time, but are absolutely proud to get people to buy into leftist indoctrination, no matter how outrageous it is. You’re just an anti-Christian bigot who needs therapy. Period.

    “ Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand ”.
    1.And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
    2.And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
    3.And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
    4.But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
    5.And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
    6.And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
    7.And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
    8.Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
    9.And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
    10.But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
    11.And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
    12.And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
    13.For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.
    14.And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
    15.And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
    16.And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
    17.And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
    18.And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
    19.Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
    20.Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
    21.And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
    22.Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
    23.The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
    24.Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;
    25.And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
    26.But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
    27.And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord:
    28.And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
    29.And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
    John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”.

    God will deal with you, this is not God’s stance. Lord have mercy on you and be gentle.

    Thank you for a simple, direct and enlightening article about Homosexuality. As a government worker who has retired after 40 years in a clerical capacity and one who used to work in the Greenwich Village area in lower Manhattan near the Stonewall Inn that started the Gay Revolution I find reading this a breath of fresh air. I worked in that area since 1987 until I retired in January 2021.

    Doesn’t Christianity say to practice kindness to one another. I don’t see any kindness in this article. There is no agenda. I am Catholic and will never forget growing up and crying myself to sleep as I was told by my religion that i was wrong, that everything about me was wrong. All i wanted was to be accepted by a church that clearly hates who i am. In the end i came to accept who i am and i still am a Catholic. I live a good life and help others. I have no agenda. I just want to belong. Please open your hearts and accept people who are gay as we are not monsters.

      Dear John,
      Thank you for your comment!

      First of all, you are not hated by the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church cannot hate anyone. She does not hate anyone. The Church hates sin, but she does not hate any sinners. How could she? “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Christ himself told those who stood in judgement of the adulterous woman: “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” The crowd of haters and would-be stoners dispersed, leaving Jesus alone with the woman. Jesus looked up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and do not sin again.”

      Jesus did not hate her, but told her to sin no more.

      Right off the bat, this article reminds readers that:

      To begin with, we must recognize that a homosexual orientation is not sinful in and of itself. Homosexual urges are similar to other human weaknesses in one way: they constitute an unnatural and unhealthy manifestation of our fallen natures, much like an excessive desire for drugs, money, food or alcohol. We are not sure why the Lord gives people such crosses to bear, but we certainly grow in virtue if we confront our weaknesses and, through His grace, defeat them.

      Again, the article states:

      A same-sex attraction will only cause damage to a person’s soul (and body) if he acts on his impulses, in the same manner that an alcoholic does no damage to himself until he begins to drink in excess.

      Homosexuals who are chaste and who successfully struggle against their urges through a lifetime of self-discipline carry a very heavy cross indeed, and we should admire them. So the mere fact that someone has a homosexual orientation does not mean that he or she is a “bad” person.

      This is not hate, John! You have a cross to bear, just as I have my crosses. Of course you can still be Catholic! You just cannot act on homosexual tendencies and be Catholic. That is the difference. You are a beautiful person and deeply loved by God, who created you. The Church accepts you, of course! But the Church does not and cannot accept the sin any more than she can and will accept any other sin. We are all in the same boat, as far as that goes! So take heart. “Go, and sin no more,” and I will do the same to the very best of my abilities.

      God bless you dear!
