Those with this inclination are and have always been “included” in the Church. That does not mean that they are not called, as all Catholics are, to accept and practice the moral teachings of the Church, which for homosexuals involves the call to chastity. Any ministry to those who suffer with this inclination, such as New Ways ministry, that does not involve and support the call to chastity, is not Catholic in any authentic sense.
But, but the moral teaching of the Church are not affirming of the biological genetic inherent same sex attraction that must be acted upon to authenticate the true selfhood of homosexual identity which you know Jesus never said anything about. They were born this way doncha know? Sexual identity is unchangeable and it is oppressive and judgmental to inflict heterosexism as the norm on others who do not share that paradigm of sexuality.
Oh by the way don’t confuse sexuality with gender which is a cultural construct and is mutable and depends on how a person envisions their gender identity. So you can have a lesbian who is trapped in a man’s body.
Did I do that right? Did I get all the squishy stuff right? I am ready for Academia.
God calls all of us to chastity but those who are unmarried are called to celibacy as well.
