Help with homosexual friend


#1

I have a friend that recently came out of the closet and declared that he is gay. I have tried talking to him and leading him back to Christ.

His response to me is that he was born gay and since God created everything, then he also created gays, since that is the case, Christ will have no problem with him being gay.

I have tried to convey to him that being gay is a wrong moral CHOICE and not a something you are born with. I can’t find resources to print out to him and show him that he is wrong in his assertion of being born gay.

Can someone point me to some resources that refutes the “born gay” fallacy, especially science sources.

Thank you for any help.

God Bless

The Church does not claim to know what causes homosexuality: “Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained.” (CCC, 2357) For up-to-date information on the research of homosexuality go to the National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH).

You may want to you refer your friend to Courage for spiritual guidance.
