Full Question

My cousin is a lesbian living with an another woman. Am I a bigot for feeling uncomfortable around them?

Answer

By acting out on their homosexuality, your cousin and her partner are doing something that you know is offensive to God. How can that not make you feel uncomfortable? There is no bigotry in this. It is perfectly OK—even necessary—to judge behavior and to feel uncomfortable around others whose behavior you know to be immoral.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church informs us that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered” (CCC 2357). And while the Church calls us to accept those who suffer from homosexuality with “respect, compassion, and sensitivity,” (CCC 2358) it also clearly teaches that, “under no circumstances, can [homosexual acts] be approved” (CCC 2357).

    The church teaches we should accept Homosexual with respect, compassion, and sensitivity but never ever approve homosexual acts.

    The answer should be accompanied with verses in the Bible and with exact translation and explanation that being homosexual is offensive or immoral before God. Excluding the verses in Genesis, Leviticus, I corinthians, 1 timothy and Romans because these verses are very clear as crystal that the translation and explanation are nothing to do with God hates homosexual but God hates sin including homosexual who didn’t repent and accept Jesus. Jesus saves us from sin not from sexual orientation.

    Reading the bible I can find where it condemns male homosexuals but not where it condemns female homosexuals. Can you advise?
