Although the particular inclination of the homosexual person is not a sin, it is a more or less strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil; and thus the inclination itself must be seen as an objective disorder.
Therefore special concern and pastoral attention should be directed toward those who have this condition, lest they be led to believe that the living out of this orientation in homosexual activity is a morally acceptable option. It is not.

One is a new exegesis of Sacred Scripture which claims variously that Scripture has nothing to say on the subject of homosexuality, or that it somehow tacitly approves of it, or that all of its moral injunctions are so culture-bound that they are no longer applicable to contemporary life. These views are gravely erroneous and call for particular attention here.

To chose someone of the same sex for one's sexual activity is to annul the rich symbolism and meaning, not to mention the goals, of the Creator's sexual design. Homosexual activity is not a complementary union, able to transmit life; and so it thwarts the call to a life of that form of self-giving which the Gospel says is the essence of Christian living. This does not mean that homosexual persons are not often generous and giving of themselves; but when they engage in homosexual activity they confirm within themselves a disordered sexual inclination which is essentially self-indulgent.
As in every moral disorder, homosexual activity prevents one's own fulfillment and happiness by acting contrary to the creative wisdom of God. The Church, in rejecting erroneous opinions regarding homosexuality, does not limit but rather defends personal freedom and dignity realistically and authentically understood.

What a beautiful life!

I worked from 1 to 12:30 last night and was very tired at the end of all of it. I also hadn't eaten much so I was kind of sick. Annie made me some food when we came home. :-) she is so good to me and I love her so much! I came over to her house around 8am to wake her up and we laid in her bed for a little bit and just were for a few minutes... it was pure, heavenly bliss. Just holding each other like that even though we were tired... even though we have a nine hour day ahead of us, even though... everything :-)

I was thinking yesterday about how people in rural areas are closer to God it is apparent in their mannerisms, in their physical beauty, in the way they talk. I wonder why? Anywho... I have to leave to take a shower for work... pray for Annie! She had her car robbed today and Bridget who had her house robbed yesterday.

God Bless and I'll talk more tonight I hope,
