Same-Sex Attraction

Audio only:

Fr. Philip Bochanski discusses how Catholics deal with the issue of same-sex attraction.

Questions Covered:

  • 8:17 – My husband’s nephew is going to marry his male partner. I know we shouldn’t go to the wedding but he is family. What should we do?
  • 14:06 - What can we, as laity, do in response to bishops and priests who come out in public support of LGBT?
  • 21:03 - How does the primacy of conscience (i.e. the idea that one should do what their conscience says even if the Church says otherwise) play into same-sex attraction?
  • 28:50 - When a Catholic school fires a teacher who has same-sex attraction, how does that not contradict the Catechism’s teaching against discrimination?
  • 34:12 - My 13-year old daughter has come out as bisexual. How can I tell her that I don’t support that lifestyle but still love her?
  • 40:02 - I wonder if, in encouraging lay Catholics to live chaste lives and forgetting those who do, do we forget about or vilify the clergy who are same-sex attracted and live chastly?
  • 43:57 - I’m a nurse providing in-home care for a boy whose mother remarried a woman. Am I condoning their lifestyle by providing this care? How should I approach this?
  • 49:55 - Why don’t we put as much money and resources as possible into finding the root cause of same-sex attraction?
