I'm curious about whether or not people in this community consider homosexuality a sin or simply a lifestyle misunderstood by the Christian world at large. In other words, are you one of those people who "love the sinner, hate the sin" or do you not even see what the big deal is?

well, from going to catholic school for 12 years and recently taking a class "christian sexual ethics" i have a pretty good understanding.

The Church sees Homosexuality as "intrinsically disordered, but homosexuals should be treated with compassion and love"

basically, what this means is: the church believes homosexuality to be a naturally occurring thing in nature. the actual orientation in itself is not a sin; just cuz someone is homosexual in orientation doesnt mean they are condemned to hell. the church calls homosexuals to chastity; you can be gay thats fine, just dont have sex with other members of the same sex.

BUT, if chastity cannot be lived out, which in modern times is the most realistic, the church ALLOWS committed homosexual relationships to exist, as long as they are not promiscuous lifestyles. it doesnt CONDONE them, but doesnt CONDEMN them AS LONG as they are monogomously committed.

im not making this up or talking out of my ass, it is all fact. if anyone thinks im a lying fuck, go ask a priest of the details of what i said, and you will know that it is truth.

also, on a side note...this isnt necessarily homosexual but id like to add: Oral and anal sex, believe it or not are also condoned and permitted by the church. HOWEVER, they are only permitted to be performed as an act of foreplay. MEANING, if you ejaculate from oral or anal sex then that is wrong. if you just perform oral or anal sex as a means of foreplay, but not performed until ejaculation, it is perfectly fine and accepted by the church. another little note than someone can ask a catholic official on.
