Last edited 9th July 2013

No matter how popular, or unpopular it is, the Church only wants the greatest good for all people. But why is the Catholic teaching on homosexuality the “greatest good?” Because it’s God’s plan for us, which can be found in natural law. It can be confusing though, and we know that you have a lot of questions. The Church teachings on homosexuality is an important topic to understand right now.

Last edited 30th June 2013

The popular media depicts couples entering into sexual relationships very early on in the dating process, but is such behavior really typical? And how does it affect relationship quality? Attempting to answer such questions, researchers from Cornell and the University of Wisconsin discovered that among low- to middle-income subjects, the speed of entry into a sexual relationship was quite fast—many began having sex within a month of dating. But the researchers also discovered that this speed seems to be damaging to couples’ relationship satisfaction.

Yes to You - The Church Teachings on Homosexuality
Last edited 19th August 2013

The topic of homosexuality and the issues around same sex marriage are very charged in our culture right now. The goal of this video (by Spirit Juice Studios, featuring Fr. Pontifex) is to communicate what the Church teaches about this topic. However, as the title would suggest, the underlying sentiment throughout the whole presentation is that the Church is a refuge of love for all of humanity. Those that would say that the Church is "anti-gay" are either misinformed or deliberately distorting the truth to push their own agenda.
