I know the Church’s position on same sex marriage, and I know the church’s position on same sex adoption, but I’m wondering as to the degree of severity of a Catholic willfully engaging in a committed unnatural relationship and then going so far as to adopt a child.
My associate and I have had discussions and he keeps coming back to “it’s not like I’m going to be excommunicated”. I’m not trying to be holier than thou, and I’m definitely not trying to use the “true scotsman” argument, but can a Catholic, who is making a permanent decision to be in an an unnatural relationship, and THEN bring a child into the picture, really call himself a Catholic?
I have fallen temptation many times to sins of the flesh, and while I can completely understand those who have had moments of weakness, it would seem that this is a sin that cannot be absolved, in the sense that there is no desire to repent.
God Bless Everyone
