Why are homosexual acts and same sex marriages wrong?


  1. Have you not read that the Creator, from the beginning made them male and female, and said, for this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and the two shall become on flesh.  Matthew 19:20

  2. Fly fornication, every sin that a man does is without the body, but he that commiteth fornication sinneth against his own body.  Corinthians 6:15-20

  3. St. Paul wrote that no fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person hath inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  Ephesians 5:5

  4. Do not err, neither fornicators, not idolators, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate [homosexuals] nor liers with mankind [Sodomites] shall possess the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6-10.

  5. Homosexuality is one of the four sins which the Bible says cries to heaven for vengeance (Genisus 18:20-21) and (Romans 1:26-32).  The others are murder (Genisus 4:10), oppression of the poor (Exodus 2:23) and defrauding the laborer of his wages (James 5:4)

  6. Thou shall not lay with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination.  Every soul that shall commit any of these abominations, shall perish from the midst of this people - I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 18:22-30

  7. If one lay with a man as with a woman, both have committed an abomination.  Let them be put to death: their blood be upon them.  Leviticus 20:13)

  8. There are also several passages in the Bible, both in the Old and New Testaments about the evils of homosexuality, especially, about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrha, because they had turned, almost totally into a population of sexual perverts.

The tradition of the Ecclesiatical Magisterium

Throughout the ages of our church at many of the official Ecumenical Councils, the evils of practicing homosexuals have been denounced.  And this has been further emphasized by the teachings and writing of scores of Saints.
