MYTH #23 The Catholic Church hates Homosexuals

From the Catechism:

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. They do not choose their homosexual condition; for most of them it is a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

Any unmarried persons are to abstain from sex until married in the Church. Whether straight or gay. It is in acting on these desires that we become a slave to sin.

Below is the complete section from the Catechism and the link to the Vatican's website.

Chastity and homosexuality
http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/_P85.HTM
2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,140 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."141 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. They do not choose their homosexual condition; for most of them it is a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

@Carl, "which is easier to say yours sins arw forgiven or get up and walk?" Jesus said to the Jews.

"I have come not for the righteous but the sinners" Jesus said to the Jews.

"who is your neighbor Jesus asked of his disciples"

"he who is without sin, let him cast the first stone"

So Carl, do you proclaim to decern God's will?

Great, now show me a verse that discuss chaste homosexuals because all the verse you posted are about participating in the acts of homosexual fornication.

And bearing false witness about Priests is a mortal sin. You dont know who is gay and who is not. So now you can read the hearts of men? You have blasphemed quite a bit so far.

Many Priests were falsely accused so they were moved to avoid scandal.

but since you want to air dirty laundry let me post this video about the "Jehovah's Witnesses pedophile scandal"

>>"Chaste" homosexuals? There's no such thing, just like there is no such thing as a "chaste" adulterer or a "chaste" thief or a "chaste" slanderer.<<

so there is no forgiveness or redemption? Jesus lied? How about St. Paul? He hunted down and killed Christians? Is he redeemed?, the Thief of the Cross...Oh and how about the Adulterer that Jesus said he didnt condemn? Did Jesus lie to her?

See now you comments are no longer constructive and are just hurtful non biblical and argumentitive.

Do you represent all JW's in your comments?

I will no longer entertain your anger.
