I’ve been pondering this for a couple of hours and I thought I’d post it here. I’d like to see what your response to this subject is. Here is the point I’m pondering:
Why does the Catholic Church condemn Homosexuality as going against nature? Or should I say considers it a “sin?” Now there are those who are not Catholic who say that Homosexuality is not “natural” as well. Okay fine I can deal with that.
The Catholic Church requires it’s Priests and Nuns to be celibate.
Now reproduction is natural. In fact for the human race or any species to continue to exist there must be reproduction. Birds do it, bees do it. But Priests and Nuns can’t do it.
Now originally I am told this wasn’t the case in the Catholic Church. Over time this changed.
I find that odd that this organization that condoms homosexuality and condoms abortion makes it agents (Priests and Nuns) abstain from sex. Now I am aware that the men and women who choose this way of life know well and full that they will never have children. And yes there are those who leave and marry. I’m also aware that there are some exceptions allowed for those who are already married or have been widowed.
Still I find it odd that there are those who condom homosexuality but support Catholic Priests and Nuns being celibate.
I wonder if the sexual abuse of children by Catholic Priests would drop if they were not required to be celibate.
Of course there are those of other religions who sexually abuse children. But I only know of one, Catholicism that requires celibacy.
What are your thoughts on this?
