Lesson 10


Many today falsely believe the Catholic Church鈥檚 teaching on homosexuality to be prejudiced, insensitive, and even bigoted. In truth, the Church differentiates between those who experience same-sex attraction, which is not sinful in and of itself, and the choice to actively engage in homosexual activity, which is sinful. Scripture prohibits homosexual acts 鈥 like other sexual sins 鈥 because it reflects a turning away from God and His will for sexual activity, jeopardizing our eternal salvation.

Lesson Vocabulary

  • Homosexuality
    Same sex attraction. The Church distinguishes between homosexuality, which is not in and of itself sinful, and homosexual acts, which, like any sexual acts outside of marriage, are sinful.
