Sex and the Catholic Church It has been said that the two most powerful drives in a human besides the practical need for food and shelter are sex and religion The sexual urge is strong in nearly everyone as advertisers of everything from chocolates to cars can tell you and the urge to worship the divine by whatever name is also strongly present in many In early religions sex was celebrated as an affirmation of life It was felt to be a foundational part of the order of the world and of human nature Therefore separating it from religion was unthinkable and a kind of contradiction in terms Many who followed the teachings of Jesus were converts from Pagan religions that used heterosexual and homosexual activities as a means of worship Religious Fundamentalists argue that sexual acts outside a marriage are immoral even then sex is only to be used as a means for procreation and is not meant to be thoroughly enjoyed Homosexuality according to them is an abomination that has always been condemned in the Bible Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman that is detestableLeviticus 722 This is the quote that most often justifies Christian homophobia The Gay and Lesbian community should be welcomed into the house of God instead of being turned away for being openly homosexual This subject is the cause of some controversy between the church and the Gay and Lesbian community The Church seems to think that being homosexual is a choice the individual makes in order to directly defy Gods wishes The Christian homosexual position when carefully examined can be exposed for what it is at its very core an attack upon the integrity sufficiency and authority of scripture which for the Christian church is an attack upon the very nature of our Holy God 3 Scroggs Others think that it is just a phase that everyone goes through
