[quote=rayne89]First from what I understand Courage “teaches” chasity, which is something we are all called to.
Catechism Of the Catholic Church
**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
I find it a a cop-out these days to say…“they have no fault as long as they do not commit the act”. You might feel this way but that is not what the Church teaches. This debt of reproduction is rediculous as jeffreedy789 pointed out not all are called to married life.
*I am not their judge, but they live in a state of abomination *Interesting contradiction. If they are practicing homosexuals meaning they engage in homosexual sex- yes then their sin is an abomination. Just as a married person having an affair, or 2 unmarried heterosexuals engaging in sex, or one who engages in masturbation - all are sexual sins that are an abomination.
You for your own personal reasons ignored my statement by St. Paul. Why? for pointless arguments sake? This is silly me having to repeat the intricacies of what St.Paul laid down in ABC’s.
St. Paul stressed that it would be *better *if *all *men could be single, and devote that singleness in unity with Christ. Note the IF please. But Paul realized this could not be, on this earth atleast.
So he advised men to marry so their hearts would not lust! The core purpose of marriage is reproduction. The others follow. Thus the debt, you see? How can you possibly take offense to this?
As far as “I am not their judge, but they live in a state of abomination” as stated by me; being contradictory, this is a straw man.
What defines ‘Judge’ to you? As the dictionary would have it in accordance with *our *subject; that being law:
“Law. To hear and decide on in a court of law; try: judge a case.”
So, i say the *live *in an evident state of abomination, but where have i said they have been tried and convicted by me, and only fit for hell?? No, this God will decide.
Next time you post, refrain from subtle insults, if anything gets to me more, its haughtiness in assumption and ignorance.
I digress before you you once again accuse me of contradictions as stated in the above paragraph.
