No one? Really? Only in today’s current culture where the disordered is accepted as normal. All sexual disorders are a disconnect between us and the way God created us and our sexuality. These disconnects are in our psyche. Therefore, yes, they are psychologically disordered.
I’m not denying that the act is wrong or disordered, but would you really say that people who masturbate have a mental disorder? That’s fine if you would, but I think you are using the words “mental disorder” a little too liberally.
Yes, it is important to accept one’s cross-- but the very real changes some people make in their lives are not denial but progress.
There has not been a single peer-reviewed study that proves homosexual people can change their orientation. In fact, if you would like a could give you a long list of people who claimed to have changed their orientation and then ended up reverting to a homosexual lifestyle. I don’t think these people are lying, I just think they have convinced themselves they have changed when no change has actually occurred. It’s kind of like how people who take placebos for hair loss drugs think they are starting to regrow their hair! I’ve been in the same situation and I too believed that I was begining to develop my heterosexuality, which, of course, turned out to be in my head.
Please re-read Genesis. God created us male and female and ordered our sexuality to the generation of new life through sexual union. That, my friend, is God creating heterosexuality.
I think you misunderstood what I meant here. I didn’t mean that God didn’t create heterosexuality and I didn’t deny that God has orientated humanity toward heterosexuality. I simply meant that no baby is born a heterosexual, just as no baby is born a homosexual. Any order or disorder follows as a child matures into puberty.
As a side note:
I wish people in the Church would be more careful about how they word things. Speak the truth always, but speak it with love. It was the idea that I was some flaw in God’s plan, some kind of mistake, that briefly drove me away from the Church. Homosexuals are not dangerous people, we shouldn’t be so afraid of them. It seems that some people believe that if you don’t hate who you are, you are trying to infiltrate the Church with homosexual propaganda. Truth in charity is the only thing that will win people over.
