Have you broached this topic with either of your 2 roommates yet?
If you haven't, I'd suggest telling whoever is leading the RCIA classes. They'll probably know how to deal with it. If they don't want to individually confront him about it, then maybe they can just include the Church's teaching at some point in RCIA. Also... isn't RCIA ending soon?
If you feel this person isn't ready to be Confirmed then definitely make your concerns known to your priest!!!
When people join the Catholic Church the idea is they have a good understanding of what the Church teaches and agree with the teachings. That's why Vatican II brought RCIA back from antiquity. Certainly you can join the Church and disagree with something if your attitude is that you'll try to conform to whatever teaching over time. Many Protestants have said they still had hangups about _____, but didn't let that stop them from converting. It would be wrong to enter into the Church with a hard heart or obstinately "I disagree with this Church teaching, and I will NEVER change my belief, I think the Church is wrong on this". As opposed to "Even though I don't agree on this issue, maybe I'll understand the Catholic teaching after prayer and being Confrimed, asking a priest, etc."
All that being said, we are all called to identify as children/ servants of God first like Paul did. Even a heterosexual shouldn't say: Well I'm proud to be straight, and also I'm Catholic.
We should all say "I'm proud to be Catholic", and if you're SSA you could say "I'm Catholic, gay and committed to celibacy, and proud of it" :D
You still have to be careful! You are not clarifying the use of the word Gay when you used it.
Saying "gay people" embeds a huge flaw (an error). You do not define whether a person is homosexually attracted, or has subscribed to the gay life-identity. One is no choice, and one is choice. If you use the word "gay" in an unclarified sense, you are contributing to the continued misunderstanding of the whole topic. The words "homosexual", "gay", "lesbian", and so forth, can never be used alone without further clarifiers, for they confuse two contradictory items; choice and NOT choice.
Regardless, I am glad for all SSA people who come to love the Lord FIRST above all else (for it draws them to identify with the Lord first too).
