Homosexuality

The present Spanish government has approved, in 2006,  a wrong called “marriage” between homosexuals. Unfortunately it is not the only country going in this direction.

Let's  remind that, starting though reason, in nature sexual instint  appears always associated with generation of news alive beings. Now,  homosexual relation is closed to generation for its own characteristic features.: It is why it must be considered against the ends of nature.

Or, reasoning through faith, according to God’s Word, the homosexual practice constitutes  an abomination, a sin against nature -for normal sexual practice is mainly aimed by nature to engender children and the homosexual practice cannot aim to this target-, a sin which closes the doors to Heaven, a typical practice of iniquitous and wicked people, a punishment of God, who, because of human evil, allows such man’s degradation, a sin which cries out to God (Gn 19, 1-29; Lev 18, 22; Judas, 7; Rom 1, 24-27; 1 Co 6, 10; 1 Tim 1, 8-10).

(All this without decrease of charity with regard to homosexuals, who sometimes are relatively innocent victims: for instance, of the conditions of prisoner-of war-camps or similar, or of some born conditions not chosen by them).

A law which confers juridical privileges towards two persons for practising such aberration against nature is an iniquitous law which rewards degrading behaviours, which legitimates an aberration to God’s eyes, is a law which claims God. This type of moral attitude propitiates ( if Sodom and Gomorrah , that collectively fell in such a degrading sin, were punished with fire from heaven ) a terrible punishment over our society.

And still worse: that, being the conscious homosexual behaviour (not the leaning that is morally without guilt) a most serious sin which, if there is no repentance,  leads on itself  to eternal condemnation, the fact that civil laws give privileges and legitimate homosexual behaviour  is then an incitement to the corruption of our youth, it is to make easier the broad road which leads to condemnation and, therefore, it isn’t a compassionated action at all, but the worse act of cruelty.

It is paradoxical that two friends who live normally together have less privileges than if they commit the homosexual abomination, what means that, being the law directly against the divine ordinance, it privileges, legitimates and rewards the behaviours, which so vigorously are condemned by God;

All we are saying doesn’t mean that those who have the leaning to homosexuality  cannot become saints if  they respect God’s mandate to abstain from committing or wanting reprehensible actions, if they keep chaste, as well as heterosexual (no privilege is added to this condition) single men or women must keep chaste if they want to please God.

Referring to homosexual practices, we can read in theCatechism of the Catholic Church: “Leaning on the Holy Scripture, which presents them as serious depravations (cf Gn 19, 1-29, Rom 1 24-27; 1 Co 6, 10; 1 Tm 1, 10),  Tradition has always sustained  that “homosexual actions are intrinsically untidy acts (CDF, decl. “Persona humana” 8). They are opposite to natural law. They deny the sexual act the gift of life. They don’t come from a true affective and sexual complementary entity. They cannot be approved in any case”.  (Nº 2357)

Looking with love to those who have  an homosexual leaning, the Catechism goes on (Nº 2358): “A considerable number of men and women present instinctive homosexual leanings. They don’t choose  his(her) homosexual condition; this one is a real proof for them. They must be received with respect, compassion  and delicacy. With regard to them, any sign of unjust discrimination has to be avoided. These persons are called to  perform God’s will in their life and, if they are Christian, to join to the sacrifice of the cross of the Lord  the difficulties they can find  because of their condition”.

And the subject goes on as follows (Nº  2359): “Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By means of self-control virtues, which train the inside freedom, and sometimes by means of  the support of an unbiased friendship, of  prayers and of supernatural  grace, they can and must gradually and resolutely  approach to Christian perfection”. 

Finally, we give the quotations of the Bible, where homosexuality is condemned:

Gn 19, 1-29

“…and called Lot and said to Him.”Where are the men that came to your house tonight? Bring them out that we can abuse them”. (v.5) (The inhabitants of Sodom tried to violate some messengers of God)
“…anyone you have in the city take them out, for we are about to destroy this place, because the outcry against them has become so great before the Lord, that he sent us to destroy it”(v.12-13) (Lot is saved from the destruction of the pitiless towns of Sodom and Gomorrah, which will take place through fire descending from heaven, once he and his family are safe)

Judas 7

“Just as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the neighbour cities which like them committed sins of immorality and practised unnatural vice, have been made an example, undergoing the punishment of eternal fire”. (In this quote, it is clear that the main sin for which Sodom and Gomorrah were punished  was this of homosexuality: “they committed sins of immorality and practised unnatural vice” and that it isn’t true, like some are saying, that the main sin  of Sodom and Gomorrah was to be against hospitality, although they also committed this sin)

Lev 18, 22

“You shall not lie with a man, as with a woman; such a thing is an abomination·.(Here God’s Word calls the homosexual practice “abomination”)

Rm 1, 24-27

“Therefore God has given them up in the lustful desires of their heart to uncleanness, so that they dishonour their own bodies among themselves- since they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen. For this cause God has given them up to shameful lusts; for their women have exchanged the natural use for that which is against nature, and in like manner the men also, having abandoned the natural use of the woman, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men doing shameless things and receiving in themselves the fitting recompense to their perversity”. (Here God’s Word warns that the worshipping of the creature, of flesh, of lust as unique aim,  can derive to man’s and woman’s degeneration, who by falling down in this repulsive vice, receive a punishment to his blindness).

1 Co 6, 10

“For not err; neither fornicators nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor the evil-tongued, nor the greedy will possess the Kingdom of God”. (Who consciously and without repenting fall in this sin of homosexual practice will not attain the eternal beatitude).

1 Tm 1, 8-10

“…knowing that the Law is not made for the just, but for the unjust and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, …for immoral people and sodomites…”(Law, without spirit, without the grace which confers to be able to accomplish it, becomes  condemnation  for those who don’t follow it, among them, for non chaste homosexuals, that do not repent)
