2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity.** Under no circumstances can they be approved.**
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.
1935 The equality of men rests essentially on their dignity as persons and the rights that flow from it: Every form of social or cultural discrimination in fundamental personal rights on the grounds of sex, race, color, social conditions, language, or religion must be curbed and eradicated as incompatible with God’s design.
Webster’s collegiate definitions"
1a: to consider worthy of High regard:
2a: to refrain from interfering with.
1a: to make a distinction
2b: to use good judgment.
Here it goes: First I want to highlight the relevant statements, from the above para’s.
Para 2357: "Under no circumstances can they be approved."
Para 2358: “They must be accepted with respect…”.“Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.”
Para 1935: “Every form of social or cultural discrimination…on the grounds of …Social Conditions…must be curbed.”
Okay now substitute the meaning of the key words “Respect” and “Discriminate” and see what falls out.
Para 2358 becomes: “They must be accepted, considered worthy of high regard, and you must refrain from interfering with them.” Every sign of using good judgement should be avoided, and don’t make any distinctions, between them and you.
Summing it up:
Para 2357 “Under no circumstances can they be approved”, and then para 2358 says to consider them worthy of high regard, and don’t interfere with them, and don’t make any distinctions.
Well how in the world can we “not approve” of them if we don’t make any distinctions? Contradictory plain and simple.
