I believe that request is against forum rules.
However, as previous posters have stated, unfortunately the general level of Catechisis for Adults in most of our church is so bad, that people like the “Graham” quoted in that article are far too common.
They have no Idea what the key teachings of our Holy Mother Church actually are.
The Idea of having an “Openly Homosexual” person being a duly appointed Lector who read as Mass, etc, shows a massive lack of understanding of the churches teachings on the matter.
The act of sex outside tradition marriage is WRONG.
The act of “identifying as Gay” and being open about this. buying into the culture of sexuality defining our identity and the culture of death is gravely sinfull. it gives scandal it tries to teach others that the churches teachings on morality are not the truth. It promotes moral relativism.
Suffering from same sex attraction is a curse on many people. so is attraction to children and adolecesents. so is attraction to animals and inanimate objects.
To say that homophilia (sexual interest in people of the same gender) is an orientation not a fault is the same as saying that hebephilia (sexual intrest in early & mid adolescents), efehobephilia (sexual interest in late adolescents), and paedophilia (sexual interest in pre-adolescents) are orientations and not a fault with the individual afflicted with these attractions.
of those 3 philias, acting on the resulting desires is illegal in all countries for 2 of the 3, and the 3rd one is illegal in many countries (depending on the local age of consent).
Very few people would consider it “normal” to have a sexual interest in pre-adolescent children. Most people would consider this desire to be “Sick”. (Paedophilia)
A similar number of people would think the same of interest in early adolescents (from onset of puberty to about mid teen years) (i.e. it is a perverted and sick desire). (Hebephilia)
Interest in Late adolescents (from mid teens to adulthood) as a sexual interest is widely accepted as common in men of many ages, but it is normally frowned upon to act on those desires. The age at which acting on those desires becomes illegal varies from country to country.
The topic is made worse by a popular media culture that promotes attraction to teenage people.
