The Church's teaching on homosexuality

Even though the event in November gave students the wrong information, with relative ease one can find good resources about teachings towards those with homosexual inclinations. This Vatican letter clearly states that such acts are mortal sins and intrinsically wrong, and that we should always remember the dignity of the individual. The strong counselors at the Church sponsored "Courage" ministry has a good explanation of Church teaching as well.

Sadly there are several members of the religious studies department who are making public their status as living a "homosexual lifestyle" and trying to justify it theologically.
