    Davey and Seth,You are both correct. An aecpst of who we are is our gayness. The Blog Buddy whom you describe may have come from a Catholic guy like Seth.Official Catholic teaching readily admits and affirms that some ppl are homosexual and however it came about, the orientation is deep seated and unchangeable. It clearly preaches, but in practice avoids, it’s teaching that gays are to be respected and not discriminated against in employment, housing, etc.However, the ONLY sexual behavior are those acts leading to and ending in heterosexual vaginal intercourse open to procreation. Thus masturbation, and any sex at all between people who are not heterosexual and married is considered morally evil and sinful in the objective order. Thus, any sex between unmarried str8s or between gays are just plain wrong.Thus all people except married str8 couples are to live a celibate life. There are a number of reasons for this stance: 1) a philosophy strongly influenced by Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas that universal concepts/principles never change. It also makes a strong distinction between subject and object.2) Following Augustine of Hippo, who believed that the ONLY justification for sex is procreation.3) The foundation of RCC official teaching starts with a physicality argument that constructs it argument based of physical heterosexual intercourse. In other words, if the man cannot insert his penis into the woman and ejaculate there, he may not marry. That is, there can be no valid marriage for him. Since gays cannot produce children they also can not validly marry.What the offical RCC does NOT do is begin with individuals and LOVE. There are a number of Catholic theologians who take a more peronalistic approach. The begin with people in relationship with each other with each other in a historical and cultural setting. For these thinkers, whether sexual behavior is moral or not depends on the nature of the relationship. This means that if two men love each other, marriage is very possible and needs to be fruitful in some way.This is the context within Seth and possibly the Blog buddy are operating.However, this raises a very contentious issue with in the gay community itself: What, if any way, are sex and love connected. There are those who believe that sex and love are distinct realities and do not need to go together. For example recreational sex is very legitimate. Others believe that sex and love are essentially connected. There is a willingness here to admit that the connection between sex and love might be weakly tied together at first but the people are seeking both.So do any of you guys have an opion on this issue?
