Editor’s note: The essential teachings of the Catholic Church regarding homosexuality are identical to its teachings on sexual relations between ANY two people who are NOT married to each other:

Sexual relations between any two people, without benefit of the sacrament of holy matrimony, are always (objectively) sinful.

There are other serious issues with homosexuality, but based on the constant teaching of the church, which calls ALL unmarried persons to remain chaste, Catholic Church teaching is not in any way discriminatory, nor can anything the church teaches be properly characterized as “hate” speech.

On the contrary, those who seek public approval for ANY TYPE of seriously disordered, sinful behavior, are engaging in the worst type of hate speech imaginable … that of scandalizing others … attempting to lead good people astray … merely to suit their own nefarious purposes.

From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.”142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.
