Encyclicals : Encyclicals 1985 PERSONA HUMANA: DECLARATION ON CERTAIN QUESTIONS CONCERNING SEXUAL ETHICS 1975 Catechism : Catechism 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.

These are the sort of people some of you were once, but now you have been washed clean, and sanctified, and justified through the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and through the Spirit of our God.

Thirty-seven percent of participants reported they had been encouraged or forced to have sexual contact before age 19 with an older or more powerful partner; 94 percent occurred with men... Cont. : Cont. Median age of the participant at first contact was 10; median age difference between partners was 11 years. Fifty-one percent involved use of force; 33 percent involved anal sex. Black and Hispanic men were more likely than white men to report such sexual contact. Using developmentally based criteria to define sexual abuse, 93 percent of participants reporting sexual contact with an older or more powerful partner were classified as sexually abused.” Sexual Abuse and Lesbianism : Sexual Abuse and Lesbianism Paulk notes, "An astounding 90 percent experienced some form of abuse themselves." This abuse was not just sexual but included emotional abuse (70 percent), sexual (more than 60 percent), and verbal abuse (more than half of those surveyed.) non-family male: 58% family friend: 24% other family member: 23% brother: 23% females: 17% Levels of Promiscuity : Levels of Promiscuity “The Kinsey Institute published a study of homosexual males living in San Francisco which reports that 43 percent had sex with 500 or more partners, 28 percent had sex with 1,000 or more partners, and 79 percent said that over half of their sex partners were strangers.” Sexual History with Men: Seattle Lesbian Health Study : Sexual History with Men: Seattle Lesbian Health Study Sexual History with Women : Sexual History with Women Dutch Study Exposes Infidelity Among Homosexual Partners : Dutch Study Exposes Infidelity Among Homosexual Partners “Dr. Maria Xiridou with the Amsterdam Municipal Health Service has just published the results of her study of the spread of AIDS among homosexuals in The Netherlands. Her study found that even among supposedly stable homosexual partnerships, homosexuals have an average of eight partners a year outside of their allegedly monogamous relationship.” (May 2003) Physical Health Risks : Physical Health Risks A 1997 New York Times article reported that a young male homosexual has about a 50% chance of getting HIV by middle age. By 1998, 54% of all AIDS cases in America were homosexual men and 90% of these men acquired HIV through sexual activity. The life expectancy for homosexual males is from eight to 20 years less compared to heterosexual males. The risk of getting anal cancer soars by 4000% in those who engage in anal intercourse. American Psychiatric Association : American Psychiatric Association In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from the list of mental disorders in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Second Edition Politics of Psychiatry : Politics of Psychiatry The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association yielded suddenly and completely to political pressure when in 1973 it removed homosexuality as a treatable aberrant condition. A political firestorm had been created by gay activists within psychiatry, with intense opposition to normalizing homosexuality coming from a few outspoken psychiatrists who were demonized and even threatened, rather than scientifically refuted. Psychiatry's House of Delegates sidestepped the conflict by putting the matter to a vote of the membership, marking the first time in the history of healthcare that a diagnosis or lack of diagnosis was decided by popular vote rather than scientific evidence (p. 9). Psychological Health Risks : Psychological Health Risks “Numerous conflicts make homosexual behaviors abnormal, including rampant promiscuity, inability to maintain commitment, psychiatric disorders and medical illnesses with a shortened life span.” 4 times more like to have major depression 3 times more likely to suffer from anxiety disorder 4 times more likely to experience conduct disorder 6 times more likely to have attempted suicide Prevalence of Homosexual Orientation : Prevalence of Homosexual Orientation WSW 1.3 % in the last year 4.1 % since turning 18 3.8 % since puberty Identifying as lesbian: 1.4 % MSM 2.7 % in the last year 4.9 % since turning 18 7.1 % since puberty Identifying as homosexual: 2.8 % Slide 30: CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll: “Do you think marriages between homosexuals should or should not be recognized by the law as valid, with the same rights as traditional marriages?" Male and Female He Created Them : Male and Female He Created Them “It is not good that man should be alone.” (Gen. 2:18) Love and Lustby Simeon-Solomon : Love and Lustby Simeon-Solomon Universal need for Chastity : Universal need for Chastity 2339 Chastity includes an apprenticeship in self-mastery which is a training in human freedom. The alternative is clear: either man governs his passions and finds peace, or he lets himself be dominated by them and becomes unhappy. "Man's dignity therefore requires him to act out of conscious and free choice, as moved and drawn in a personal way from within, and not by blind impulses in himself or by mere external constraint. Man gains such dignity when, ridding himself of all slavery to the passions, he presses forward to his goal by freely choosing what is good and, by his diligence and skill, effectively secures for himself the means suited to this end." Call to Chastity : Call to Chastity 2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection. Slide 38: Chastity Prayer and Dedication Fellowship Support Good Example http://couragerc.net/ Is Change Possible? : Is Change Possible? “The Spitzer report from the Archives of Sexual Behavior … surveyed ex-homosexuals who were out of the lifestyle for five years, and it found that 64% of the men and 43% of the women considered themselves to be heterosexuals after they received treatment. Dr. Spitzer of Columbia University led the task force of the American Psychiatric Association in 1973 that removed homosexuality from our diagnostic manual.”
