I have seen the issue of homosexuality discussed and was amazed that Protestants cannot say that Masturbation is sin. There is of course difficulty with some Protestants accepting Birth Control as sin. I have seen postings from those claiming to be Christian promoting homosexuality. I have seen confused transgendered wanting the Church to change teachings. This is the teaching of the Church. It is based on the 6th commandment. It is not based on Science, polls, research, vote…it is based on Scripture and Tradition…
THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT
You shall not commit adultery.113
You have heard that it was said, “You shall not commit adultery.” But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.114
Chastity and homosexuality
2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. **Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. **
2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.
Do any Catholics see the Church changing this view on homosexuality, transgendered, etc.
Do Homosexuals or those that promote Homosexuality understand what the Church bases its teachings on and why it cannot and will not change.
Same Sex Marriage, Transgender, etc all fall under this teaching.
