I desperately want to be Catholic but the only thing that is stopping me is the thought of having to tell someone it is wrong to have or be in a homosexual relationship.
I would love to have children and bring them up in the church but the fear of them being gay and the stress that the church would cause them really makes me upset. I know the church calls these people to be celibate or to be in a heterosexual relationship but I honestly believe people are born gay and that to deny them of a consensual relationship is emotionally damaging. I don’t know if I would even be allowed to be confirmed due to this yet I know of Catholics who believe that gay marriage is okay.
I know that one of the reasons why is due to the fact a gay couple can not have a child, what about heterosexual couples who cannot have children? Should they not have sex? Please explain to me why it is so terrible for two consensual adults to get married? Why is it seen as good to tell a child that being gay is a sin and that they cannot get married in the church? I am genuinely upset about this and really want some advice.
