Sorry I didn't reply to someone else as you'd have me do, Ken.<quoted text>
Quest, in post #37 above, asked three simple questions of you.
You didn't answer any one of them.
Instead, you tried to equate his presentation of a personal simplicity of Being and a natural integrity with every imagination of bad behavior known to mankind.
Yes, such may be related, just as being a human can be related to destructive acts done by some humans to other humans, et cetera.
But, that does NOT answer the questions that he asked.
What you did was answer:
(Quest) If A + B = C, show why C is not the product of A + B.
(Dan answered) Because C is the same thing as D and D is often bad because it is not actually A + B.
Go back to his questions about A + B and show a reasoned answer, if you think you can. Let your answer come from a congruency of your own mind and heart.
And be aware: you have a trained set of beliefs that may not be a congruent source of parameters from which to draw an answer. But, you also have a fully capable mind and heart that YOU have RESERVED and kept apart from ALL of this training, knowing full well the exact point that you made in your answer above.
That is, that the human condition of "D" is often present.
"How does a natural trait like homosexuality harm ANYONE? WHO is being harmed if God created some folks who can only be attracted to the same gender?"
The Church teaches that homosexuality is objectively disordered, thus those with the disorder are disadvantaged or "harmed" in this sense.
Their teachings on homosexual activity are known, unless you feel the need to see it spelled out.
I think that resolves quest's inquiry of me.
Seems like a pretty strange sin, doesn't it?
