Besides for the one sentence in the Catechism describing how “unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided” (2358)… can anyone point me to where the Church has actively protected or defended or taken a direct and active stance against the human rights atrocities committed against homosexuals (and those assumed to be homosexual for cultural reasons) around the world?
I think it’s a very important pro-life issue, since there are 79 countries around the world where engaging in homosexual behaviors (or even those assumed to be), or even merely being homosexual, will land one in jail for years or decades or even life, or result in brutal executions. Let’s also remember that in many places a prison sentence as a homosexual is a death sentence in itself (due to rape and violence from other inmates). These individuals often don’t even have recourse to the Sacraments as they’re being put to death.
We all know homosexuality is a disorder and its practices sinful, but obviously the reaction it gets around the world in the blatant human rights atrocities that are directed towards it are appalling and nowhere in those areas even remotely resemble Christian understanding and compassion.
I’m just wondering what the Church has done to combat this. I see a lot of pro-lifers carrying signs to protect the unborn millions who are slaughtered every year. That’s good. Where are the pro-lifers carrying signs to protect the homosexual persons slaughtered every year around the world?
