Okay, so here’s the thing. You can be Catholic and a homosexual (bisexual, pansexual, asexual, etc). Nothing in Catholic doctrine prohibits you from experiencing non-heterosexual desires, just as nothing in Catholic doctrine prohibits you from experiencing gluttonous desires, envious feelings, greedy tendencies, and slothful desires. What Catholic doctrine prohibits, is entertaining and acting on these urges. You can read more about this from one of my previous answers to this exact question. You might also be well advised to check my FAQ which is actually on my blogthe next time you decide to come into my inbox and spout off about something I’ve probably already covered before considering the nature of this blog.
So, now that I’m sure you’ve read that link I posted and are now completely up to date on my views regarding same-sex attraction in the context of Catholicism, as well as what the scriptures and catechism say about same-sex attraction/acts, it should warm your tender little heart to learn that I am in fact celibate and have not had sexual relations with anyone for about two years now (which is actually longer than I’ve been Catholic if you weren’t aware). So your question is not only inappropriate, but it is also unnecessary, because it doesn’t particularly apply to me. Not that that’s any of your business Anon, but maybe from now on you’ll think a bit about your opinions before you sling them around like a monkey does with its own excrement.
Finally, I would like to get on a little Catholic soapbox for a minute. According to the Williams Institute, 40% of homeless youth served by agencies identified themselves as part of the MOGAI (Marginalized Orientation, Gender Identities, and Intersex) community. 4 in 10 MOGAI youth say that the community in which they live is not accepting of MOGAI people. MOGAI youth are twice as likely as their cishet peers to say that they have been assaulted at school. MOGAI youth are 4 times as likely as their peers to attempt suicide, while it’s about a 50% chance that if you are trans, you will seriously contemplate killing yourself.
Did you hear that correctly, Anon? “MOGAI youth are 4 times as likely as their peers to attempt suicide, while it’s about a 50% chance that if you are trans, you will seriously contemplate killing yourself."[bolded for your benefit] Teenagers… no, Children are killing themselves. Because they are gay. Because they are bi. Because they are trans. Because they dared to have a crush. Because someone found a makeup kit in their room. Because someone discovered their binder. Because someone found the love poem to the girl in their history class. CHILDREN ARE DYING. Children are being told by their parents that they aren’t loved. Children are being turned away by their churches. Children are being beaten and left for dead. And you want to sit there and talk about how “being gay is against Catholic doctrine.”
So the fuck what if it is? As Catholics, our duty is to LOVE. Jesus never said “Love your enemies, unless they’re gay.” The Church’s job is to facilitate the growth and eventual salvation of every soul. Tell me, dear Anon, how throwing your child from your home is beneficial to their immortal soul? How is the rejection of people who only seek acceptance “loving thy neighbor”? How do you have the audacity to sit there and condemn children? What freedom from sin did you accomplish that gives you the right to look down your nose at anyone? How dare you presume speak for God, and how dare you sum up the sufferings of these humans with a simple “being gay is against Catholic doctrine”? Being a hypocrite is against Catholic doctrine as well, so kindly deal with the log in thine own eye before you ever come back to me with any of that bullshit.
