catechisms

Hey Catholics for Choice:

Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.

-Catechism of the Catholic Church 2270 

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

If someone is gay, who searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge? The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says they should not be marginalized because of this (orientation) but that they must be integrated into society.

CCC 2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them 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.

Just to clarify what the Catholic faith thinks about homosexuals..

It is said in 2538 of the catechism, “They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.”

So no, we do not hate gays and lesbians. Do not believe otherwise.

If you do not love your enemies, you will not experience the sweetness of the Holy Spirit. It is the Lord Himself who teaches us to love our enemies, to feel and suffer with them as if they were our own children. The Holy Spirit is Love, and this love fills the souls of the holy citizens of Heaven … There are some who wish the pain and torment of eternal fire upon their enemies and upon the enemies of the Church. By thinking in this way, they do not know the love of God. Whoever possesses the love and humility of Christ weeps and prays for the whole world.
