How should we approach those with same-sex attraction?

light-bulb-questionQ: How should we approach those with same-sex attraction?
A: With a lot of love, patience and understanding! We know that it can be very difficult for them to live chaste/celibate lives, so they need the care and support of honest friendships. The Church does not say they are evil and destined for hell, so we must not hold this view either. Same-sex attraction is considered an “intrinsically disordered tendency,” meaning people are drawn to something that is not ordered to their ultimate good. Homosexual acts are contrary to natural law and close the sexual act to the gift of life.
