I Have a close friend who has been in battle with his sexuality for a long time. He is catholic and attends church every week, never missing a week. His Father has been a Catholic his whole life, and follows the bible very closely. He has always been against Homosexuality, and taught my friend to be too. My friend however is getting to the point where he is having a lot of trouble controlling it, He’s always known there was something different about him and he slowly learned what it was as he got older. He doesn’t want to give into it because of his beliefs. He grew up in a family that has no homosexuals to be found on either side, and The First time he met a homosexual that he knew of was years after he started to get these feelings. I see no way he could have simply been influenced to be the way he is.
My question is a tough one, If he’s always felt different like this and has known since childhood, why then is it like this. Was he not born under God too? If God does not approve why then does he do nothing to help him, he’s prayed and attends church, but gets no close to overcoming it.
I am also Catholic and attend church Every Sunday.
