Chapter 2 Intro Catholic Belief on Gay Marriage

Being a highly involved in the theatre community, it is common for me to be friends with many sexual orientations. This leaves me in an uncomfortable spot because I typically clash with others on the views of gay marriage. My personal belief is that God made man for woman so that they may create the beautiful gift of life. When it comes to a man and man, or a woman and woman they do not have the potential to bring another life into this world, which is the main purpose of loving your spouse.  Though unfortunately many people confused this with hatred for gays, this is an extremely false statement. As Catholics are called to love all, no matter who they are or what sexual orientation they may have. We love the person but not the act. For example its similar to people who have sex before marriage. We love the person but don’t necessarily approve of the action. Therefore those who have a sexual attraction to persons of the same sex are called to a chaste life much like single or laypersons. Some homosexuals even choose to become part of a holy order so they can fully live out God’s will. We as Catholic do accept gays with open arms just not the act.
