There are two basic degrees or types of homosexuality. Individuals in the first group may not know how to deal with their mental disorder, and therefore not all will seek professional counselling. This group struggles with their unnatural feelings and prefers to keep them private, and they deserve our compassion.
Some women who have a domineering father will only be attracted to those of their own sex because they have learned not to respect men. The same is true of some men who have a domineering mother. Others, should one of their parents/guardians not truly love them, from a very early age may unconsciously imitate certain masculine or feminine characteristics of the parent/guardian that they most admired.
However, not all become homosexuals - as with every human being, our moral state determines our ability to resist the temptations we experience.
The other more serious type is made up of individuals who are "avowed", practising homosexuals. Through their own free will, they choose to live an immoral lifestyle. These individuals do not seek to change or confess their sinfulness - they have no shame, and most have many partners.
They desire acceptance of the scandal they create, and are openly proud of their unnatural behaviour. These type of homosexuals and lesbians seek the "right" to publicly practise their unnatural behaviour, and accuse anyone who admonishes them of being "prejudiced" or of "discrimination".
They also frequently attack the Catholic Church because members of the Church often quote Romans (1:26-27), which reveals why God condemns homosexuality as a great evil: "For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error."
These so-called "gay" individuals and others who live immoral lives, as well as those who give their approval or consent to any type of morally sick lifestyle, are included in the warnings and condemnations recorded throughout Scripture.
In the United States, these "warnings" apply particularly to those in the entertainment field, the media, and the majority of politicians in the morally challenged Democratic Party, who not only approve of all forms of homosexuality, but also support "the right to kill" through abortion and euthanasia.
