Honest Enquiry

Pam, the Catholic blogmistress of “A
Bird’s Melody
“, sincerely wonders why homosexual acts are sinful. Anybody
out there want to field this one? I suppose we could point her to the relevant parts
of the Catechism, but I suspect that would be unsatisfying for her.

the church
and homosexuality

A sin is either an act that is harmful to God, oneself, or others, or simply an act of turning away from God. How then exactly are acts of homosexuality harmful? I’m asking this question seriously, not rhetorically. If they are not harmful, how are they turning away from God? Please do not point to the Bible and say “there, in this verse, it says that it’s sinful.” I know the Bible says that. I want to know how, exactly, acts of homosexuality are sinful.
