Did Jesus ever condemn homosexuality? This is a question that has been the little "stinger" that Christian gay activists have been using since the Supreme Court ruling yesterday.

My response would be, "yes, He did."

Apparently many Catholics, and non-Catholic Christians, are not very familiar with Sacred Scripture. In the case of Catholics, both Scripture, and the Catechism. For it doesn't take a heavily intellectual man to sort things out and find the basic fundimental building blocks of love, or to understand sin.

Lets start off with love. As we Catholics know, God Himself is Love. It is said that we were made BY love, WITH love, FOR love. So what does that mean. Well, when God first created man (Gen 1:26-28) He created man out of love. But He didn't just create man simply to be... to exist... no, He called man to love. Thus, he created Eve. So we have God, who is Love, He made man out of love and He created them (man and woman) for love.

At the beginning of time, God set the boundaries of love. So then, what is sin? In the Catechism we are told that sin is, "a thought, utterance, or deed against the eternal law of God." Now we, as Christians, believe that Jesus Christ, is One in Being with The Father, and The Holy Spirit. Therefore, if God Himself is eternal, and His law is eternal, than what was once a sin, will always be a sin. This means that when dealing with homosexuality based off The Bible we cannot simply dismiss all of the references in the Old Testament. Because God Himself is unchanging.

Now its easy enough to find verses in the Old Testament that condemn homosexual actions, such as Liviticus 18:21-22 and 20:13; but the trouble people have is finding references in the New Testament. So, for those of you who are not familiar with these passages you may want to break out your Bible and look them up. Timothy 1:8-10 mentions sodomites as, "contrary to sound doctrine," and Romans 1:24-28 makes it very clear that homosexual actions are evil in the eyes of God.

Many people then ask, "so you're saying gay people are evil? And that they're going to hell?"

No. Thats not what I'm saying. I'm saying the ACT of homosexuality is a grave sin. It is contrary not only to the NATURAL LAW (the way things were meant to work through their immediate physical nature) and DIVINE LAW (the way God made things to be in their "inner" spiritual nature) and is contrary to His eternal law, thus making it a sin.

"But you can't tell people what they can, and cannot do."

Actually you can. Lets take for example, the fact that it is against the law to kill (murder) someone. Why is it illegal? Well, first of all, its wrong. Secondly, if everyone went aroud killing people society wouldn't be stable. Lastly, there is a third party involved that is affected in some negative way. These are the duties of society. So where do they apply to gay "marriage"?

Firstly, we just concluded above, at least somewhat, that homosexuality is a sin. Its wrong. Secondly, it makes society unstable. It effects society... and not in a good way. Society is based on the concept of the familiy. Without it, society falls apart as a whole. Lastly, it affects a third party in a negative way. These people want to raise children, and are seen by others as they openly engage in sinful actions. Their children will be raised being confused or feeling empty because their childhood will be unnatural. Its not normal, and its not healthy for the childs physical or spiritual well being.

Thanks for reading! God bless!

Yours in Christ
