Addressing Same-Sex Attraction

Earlier this month, while many were following news from the Vatican's Synod on the Family, there was another meeting taking place in the Eternal City.

This one, called Living the Truth in Love, was billed as "an international conference and resource event to address pastoral approaches toward men and women with homosexual tendencies."  With so much focus on same-sex marriage and its implications, it's easy to forget that there are many Christians who struggle with unwanted same-sex attraction. 

The Executive Summary for the conference has just been released and is available online.  We commend it to your reading.  It includes moving testimonies of men and women who left the homosexual lifestyle with the help of their Christian faith.  The latest scientific findings regarding sexuality and identity are available, courtesy of Drs. Paul McHugh and Aaron Kheriaty.  Jennifer Roback Morse of the Ruth Institute provides research on children and same-sex parenting.  And Fr. Paul Check, Executive Director of Courage International, writes eloquently on ministering to those with same-sex attraction.

On page 12, Fr. Check specifically addresses the risks of encouraging young people to assign labels to themselves.  He writes of the "danger in so-called LGBT or gay-straight alliances or support groups in high schools and colleges. . . . Adolescence is a time of self-discovery, emotional and sexual development, and growth in virtue, with some predictable confusion and even missteps on the road to authentic self-knowledge."

You can read the Executive Summary here. 

• To learn more about the organization that works to promote homosexuality in schools, read "GLSEN: K-12 Queer Ed Regime."

• And read Salvo's interview with a man who found his way out of the homosexual lifestyle in "The Path to Intimacy: It Took Courage to Find It."
