Gay, Catholic, and Doing Fine

I have heard a lot about how mean the Church is, and how bigoted, because she opposes gay marriage. How badly she misunderstands gay people, and how hostile she is towards us. My gut reaction to such things is: Are you freaking kidding me? Are we even talking about the same Church?
Gay, Catholic, and Doing Fine - LifeTeen.com for Catholic Youth

I thought that many of you would enjoy this article, especially those of you who struggle with temptations toward the same sex. I am one of those persons who struggle with temptations toward the same sex. Modern culture would call me bisexual. However, I am chaste and I am so happy that I am chaste. I am also celibate and intend to be celibate for the rest of my life. I could marry a man if I wanted to but I really do not want to because I don't feel like I could handle raising children with my disabilities.

So to sum it up, I posted this article to show that it is clearly possible to be gay, bisexual, lesbian and an orthodox practicing Catholic. May God bless all of you.

Ave Maria (Holly)

The term "gay" is a political construct like how "Pro-Choice" is. It has a strong association with a political group of people who deny that the behavior is a sin.

A better term that doesn't have political baggage attached is same-sex attraction or SSA for short.

It was an okay article - gives people some perspective. But comparing having same-sex relationships/gay marriage to eating sand - "it won’t nourish you; it will hurt you" - "she opposes it because it’s impossible, just as impossible as living on sand", made me a little mad.

No. They do have to abstain from any relationships or sexual relations with the same-sex though.



Personally, I think the actions the Church takes in the political arena is where it struggles to avoid being bigoted and hateful.

Being hateful is 'accepting' the sin that leads to eternal separation from God and ignoring the soul - who does live on. The Church - in spite of the world trying to make her look bad - is more concerned for ppl.
This life is temporary - so why put all your eggs in the basket of living on earth - when it all ends here anyway.
Nobody gets out alive.

So the Church is loving - because she wants to nourish the soul - that matters more than the flesh due to it's eternal properties.
