My best friend is gay, but he’s also a Catholic. He’s still in the closet but confided in me a few years ago that he’s gay. He’s attracted to men since a young age but he’s been trying hard to cover it. Due to family expectations, he’s been dating this female friend for a few year. They’ve broken up a couple of times, but finally decided to get married in a few months time. The way I see it, they are more like good friends than a couple. However, he believes that being gay is a sin and that male & female marriage is part of his catholic committments and hence decided to walk down this path.
I’m not sure if I should interfere, afterall, it’s his life and what he chose to do. Personally I don’t think this is the right thing to do and it’s deceitful to the people around him and also the girl, who has no idea about this.
I remember reading on a Catholic website a couple of years ago about homosexuality in Catholism - that it’s not a Sin and Catholic accepts that some people maybe gay. But it also mentions that these people shall not get married to the opposite sex and should remain single for the rest of their life. I could not remember where I see this, and have been looking around a bit but couldn’t find the website. I wish to show it to my friend and let him re-consider what he’s doing - can anyone point me to a similar infomration site on the topic?
