Against the sins of homosexuality (sodomy) the Church has always taught. With Scripture, Tradition and Reason, it is evident that homosexuality is a grave sin that cries to heaven for justice. Lumped together with that detestable act, are bestiality, pedophilia, incest and all unnatural sexual lusts and acts. As Christians we must reject sodomy as a gross sin (like rape, murder, thievery, etc) and do all we can to pray for and guide the erring to justice and virtuous living. Thus we love one another.
