* As is obvious by nature, children need a father and a
mother. Placing children with homosexuals has been shown to cause them harm in
the long run (for proof, try researching online). The most loving thing to do is
ensure (to the extent possible) that children are raised with their two, loving
natural parents (i.e. their biological mother and father) or by a loving
adoptive father & mother.
* It is a MISTAKE to think that God directly wills
everything that happens. God only tolerates evils, He does not directly will
them. The fact that He tolerates something does not mean He directly wills it!
God allows many evils (murder, pedophilia, rape, etc.), but He obviously does
not directly will them! In fact, He is offended by them.
* God does NOT change – not ever! God has already told us
that homosexual acts offend Him. Scripture calls such acts an abomination (see
Scripture also tells us that those who engage in such acts (and remain
unrepentant) will NOT be allowed into heaven (see 1 Cor. 6:9-10). Scripture also tells us that those
who engaged in such acts "serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of
eternal fire" (see Jude 1:7). It is a HUGE mistake to think God will change His mind on this or
any other matter! Remember that change implies imperfection - whereas God is
perfect and can NEVER change. It is IMPOSSIBLE for God to change. Those who
think otherwise are mistaken/deceived. For more on the unchangeableness of God,
* The Church will NEVER, EVER 'marry' homosexuals. This is
utterly impossible! Homosexuals can NEVER be married in the eyes of God, despite
any human laws to the contrary.
* Various military leaders have said that open homosexuals
serving in the military will harm this country's defense, so this policy may
eventually harm the security of this nation.
* You do not seem to appreciate that homosexual acts are
sinful, but they are one of only a handful of sins that 'cry to heaven'. It is a
VERY SERIOUS sin. For more on homosexuality, please try
* One who promotes/condones others' sins (such as
homosexual acts) may be an accessory to their sins.
* Those who reject Church teachings may be guilty of
heresy. For more on heresy, try
I would suggest you make an
appointment with a good priest and speak with him privately about this matter.
Also, keep in mind that no one is
suggesting that homosexuals are not loved by God or cannot be forgiven for their
actions. On the contrary – God loves them (NOT their sin!) and can forgive all
their sins – even grave sins involving homosexual acts. However, those who are
unrepentant of homosexual acts and those who have no intention of refraining
from them seriously jeopardize their salvation.
Reminder: Homosexual actions are
sinful, but an inclination to homosexuality that is not desired or acted upon is
not sinful. Remember: While we must hate sin, we must simultaneously love
sinners. Do not inflict or wish harm on homosexuals.
