Now seeing as how me saying something is sin – well that is one thing. This however, is from the Archdiocese of Washington (Msgr. Pope). All too often, I think we dismiss far too easily the gravity of our trespass against God and each other.
We live in times when many call good or “no big deal” what God calls sin. This is especially true in the area of sexuality where whole sectors of our society not only tolerate but even celebrate sexual practices that the Scriptures call gravely sinful and which will lead to hell if not repented of. Acts of fornication (pre-marital sex) and homosexual acts cannot be considered acceptable by any Catholic, or any person who sincerely accepts the Scripture as the Word of God. And even for those who do not share our faith, acts of fornication, and homosexual acts can be plainly seen to cause great harm in the manner in which they spread serious disease, harm marriage and family, lead to abortion, a for the children who do survive abortion subject them to single motherhood, absent fathers, and a lack of the best environment which they are due.
