White Paper March 27, Ten short years ago, same-sex marriage produced deep divisions within American society. The majority of Americans opposed granting legal recognition to gay and lesbian couples, and politicians seemed to play tug-of-war with the issue as it suited their needs. Bush called for an amendment to the federal constitution to block same-sex marriages nationwide.
Homosexuality is a troubling moral and social phenomenon. Due to benign interpretations of the homosexual condition itself it is increasingly being viewed as something neutral or even good.
Men and women with homosexual tendencies must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity. Nonetheless homosexual acts must be considered wrong and intrinsically disordered. They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementary.
Under no circumstances should they be approved. In the West the legalization of homosexuality has already lead to the destruction of the family unit. Children who have no knowledge of sex are being brainwashed in schools to accept the perversion of homosexual acts as being normal and praiseworthy.
At special risk now is religious freedom. In Canada, Christians are being harassed, threatened, and hauled into court for their biblical and scientifically supported conviction that homosexuality is not normal and that marriage is between one man and one woman.
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.
There is a lot of misinformation and a distortion of facts disseminated by the press today about homosexuality.
The Western media often portrays the homosexual lifestyle and relationships as happy, healthy, and stable. Homosexuals also have very high rates of sexually transmitted infections such as HIV. Further, many studies show much higher rates of psychiatric illness, such as depression, suicide attempts and drug abuse among homosexuals than among the general population.
And statistics — which compare homosexuals with ethnic minorities exposed to racism — indicate this is not due to homophobia. The homosexual lifestyle is also associated with a shortened life expectancy of up to 20 years. Homosexual behavior is abnormal, immoral and anti-life.
It closes the act of sex to the gift of life and is not innate as some believe. The Bible clearly and unequivocally also condemns homosexual acts Gen 1: In Homosexual activists succeeded in pressuring the American Psychiatric Association APA to remove homosexuality from their official list of mental disorders.
This about face, according to a scientific study by Dr. Satin over, Director of the Durckheim-Gladstone International Center for Quantitative Analysis in Washington, was due to certain bias, false claims, lack of scientific expertise, lack of clinical experience and fabrication of evidence.
The inadequacy of her research was even acknowledged by the journal that published it. Authentic scientific studies show that homosexuality is linked to pedophilia.
For example, a study in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy found that homosexual men are three times more likely than straight men to engage in paedophilia. A article in the same journal concluded that among paedophiles the rate of homosexual attraction is six to 20 times higher than among the male population generally.
Richard Fitzgibbons, a U. Michelle Cretella, a board member of the American College of Pediatricians has also concluded from multiple studies that children reared by gay couples have gender confusion and are put at high risk for sexually transmitted diseases. Cretella noted that homosexually behaving teens and young adults suffer increased rates of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addictions and suicidal thoughts.
The Laumann Report, published inis today universally recognized as definitive. In summary, its major findings are that homosexuality is not a stable trait and that it tends spontaneously to convert into heterosexuality as an individual gets older; that sexual identity is not fixed at adolescence but continues to change over the course of life and that there is no evidence for homosexuality being innate.
We may now say that young persons, who develop a homosexual identity, retain it due to the social milieu. This social milieu is the family setting and culture created by, inter alia, the decisions enforced by the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States acting in coordination with the misrepresentation of the scientific evidence provided to it by the APA, and the National Association of Social workers.Each given role indicates specific responsibilities and expectations that help shape motives.
