Homosexuality causes are unknown
To the Editor:
No one knows the causes of homosexuality. Not long ago, it was officially regarded as a mental illness. Progress has been made since then, but whether genes or choices or the environment or a combination of these is the cause is still unknown.
The church says homosexuality is wrong. It says homosexuality should not be praised or persecuted either.
It does debar from the priesthood, but it does not debar from governor, senator, corporation executives, etc. The main thing to remember is that homosexuals – gays and lesbians – are above all just human beings with a unique individuality that has little or nothing to do with their “sexual orientation.”
