The commandments are not arbitrary “does and don’ts.” Rather, they are the way man would naturally live—if man knew who he truly was.Those who have virtue will spontaneously live in accord with the commandments.Regardless of what my feelings might tell me, my body reveals to me the truth that I am not gay, but rather a male made for a female.The are oriented toward the goods of marriage and the flourishing of family life.Of late, much attention has been given in both the secular media and Christian media to those who call themselves “gay celibate Christians.” As a man attracted to men yet committed to traditional Catholic teaching on human sexuality, I find the notion both of being “gay” or “celibate” strange.
Like Christ, a man who truly knows who he is will naturally lead a life of chastity. I have written often before of the reasons I eschew the word gay to describe myself, and why I think it is a mistake for anyone to claim that label.
The notion that gender and sexuality reside in the mind, or can be chosen at will, is opposed to human flourishing and the true nature of man.
The Church wisely gives us the antidote to this view through the virtue of chastity.
It is for this reason that I am grateful for the wise words written by then Cardinal Ratzinger in 1986, when he said that “today, the Church provides a badly needed context for the care of the human person when she refuses to consider the person as a ‘heterosexual’ or a ‘homosexual’ and insists that every person has a fundamental Identity: the creature of God, and by grace, his child and heir to eternal life.” This truth about my sexual identity is the reason I also refuse to call myself celibate.
Though I am living a single life, I am no different than all of my other single friends who have yet to be married.
