Why Church need gay people..?

There may be a divine plan behind gay people.

Christ accepted almost all kinds of people with various basic instincts, prostitutes, tax collectors, violent people etc. Recent debate in Church is about accepting Gay people. The social aspect is very clear that they will ruin the basic structure of family. But the supporting argument is more basic that their nature itself is love the same sex. Can we explain a love to same sex on the basis of history of the church?

Gay-Marriage

I wish to say about Philokalia. It means love of the beautiful. The Song of Songs is one of the most beautiful books of the Bible and one of the most misunderstood. The book has sexual references, and through this book, God endorses sex within marriage. It is very interesting to analyse this book as this describes choosing the right love, waiting for love, a dark night of soul, suffering for a God’s love and a fulfilling of the love. St John of the Cross defines a love and journey in his book, The ascent of Mount Carmel. He says:

“a soul journeys toward that divine light of perfect union with God that is achieved, insofar as possible in this life, through love”.

And he sings:

“O guiding night! O night more lovely than the dawn!

O night that has united the Lover with his beloved, transforming the beloved in her Lover.”

So what is the context of this love in our life? Concept of a woman God is rare and only in some eastern religions. In Christianity God is always male. I believe love to same sex is an invitation to love God. The love of these saints to God is something above a natural love and the nature is they find a lover in God.

St Teresa of Avila describe it as this:

“The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love. Love is not great delight but desire to please God in everything.”

In the Soul’s Desire, St Teresa describes how passionate her love is:

“This mystic union of love divine

This bond whereby alone my soul doth live,

Hath made my God my captive-yet to me

True liberty of heart the while doth give”.

And again in Divine Beauty she sings:

“O Mystic love-knot, that dost bind

Two being of such diverse kind !

Thou fill’st my soul, which hungers still:

Thou lov’st where men can find but ill

Our naught grows precious by Thy might!”

Love of St John of the Cross is more warm:

“How gently and lovingly

you wake in my heart,              

where in secret you dwell alone;              

and in your sweet breathing,              

filled with good and glory,              

how tenderly you swell my heart with love”. (The living flame of Love)

“Our bed is in flower,

bound round with linking dens of lions,

hung with purple,

built up in peace,

and crowned with a thousand shields of gold. ……

There he gave me his breast;

there he taught me a sweet and living knowledge;

and I gave myself to him,

keeping nothing back;

there I promised to be his bride”. (The spiritual canticle)

So why we can’t assume the instinct of love to same sex as a divine will of God to love Him in a far more passionate way than many love Him? Since God give us the wisdom and prudence to change our instincts and direct and grow it for good why we can’t make our instinct to love same sex divert to love to God?

“If, Lord, Thy love for me is strong

As this which binds me unto thee,

What holds me from thee Lord so long,

What holds thee Lord so long from me?

O soul, what then desirest thou?

Lord I would see thee, who thus choose thee.

What fears can yet assail thee now?

All that I fear is but lose thee.

Love’s whole possession I entreat,

Lord make my soul thine own abode,

And I will build a nest so sweet

It may not be too poor for God.

A soul in God hidden from sin,

What more desires for thee remain,

Save but to love again,

And all on flame with love within,

Love on, and turn to love again”.

– St Teresa Avila

  1. You gotta be kidding. The church has always accepted “Gay People”…just said that sexual acts, and sexual love between two people of the same sex is INTRINSICALLY DISORDERED and IMMORAL. That is not saying gay people are not accepted. Do so me research before you post such a disturbing lying article.

  2. the church never accepted gay people, if church do, church will approve their marriage, their relationship. And, I didnt say homo sexuality should be accepted in church. I was trying to find out the God’s plan behind that orientation and how a person wz such orientation can divert that desire/instinct towards passionate love to God. I made clear in my blog: “So why we can’t assume the instinct of love to same sex as a divine will of God to love Him in a far more passionate way than many love Him? Since God give us the wisdom and prudence to change our instincts and direct and grow it for good why we can’t make our instinct to love same sex divert to love to God?”

  3. I suggest that if you want to find out God’s plan as it pertains to love and sex, then study Genesis chapters 1, 2, and 3, especially as illuminated by St. John Paul II in his work “Theology of the Body.”

  4. Nico Demus I know that some have given you a struggle over writing this–I for one thank you for it. It gives me hope, and hope for those from my background as a Catholic celibate man with SSA. Thank you. Much.

  5. i really appreciate your concern for gay people and so is the catholic church concerned of them. but i do not accept your argument. love of same sex is not a strange thing or a taboo to all cultures from all times of humanity. love of same sex is prevalent in every family, for instance, son loving a father, mother loving her daughter, sisters loving each other and brothers loving each other. this kind of authentic and natural love of same sex can surely be an invitation for a male to love god of the same sex, as u consider him as male. but is it necessary to have physical relationship with the same sex which is extremely unnatural, abnormal and unacceptable by god himself ( story of Sodom and Gomorrah) to be an invitation to love god??? yes, the acceptance of prostitutes and tax collectors by God into his kingdom, god broadened our understanding that every human being whoever he or she is or what ever he or she is has a value (or is valuable). acceptance of homosexually oriented good people in the church in this manner is in line with god’s plan. but by accepting the act of homosexuality and gay marriage i think we are trying to change god’s principle itself which is an utter abomination….;

  6. You’re actually quite right. Despite what people say. If you do the research into the church’s past the priesthood was used as an easy out for those who “struggled” with homosexuality. It gave them a way to remain in the church and to never raise an eyebrow for staying single. Did the church accept them the way we Americans would consider acceptance, no. However, the church did accept them into the fold in it’s way. The death of traditional priesthood has pushed homosexuals out of the church and left them as pariahs to our community for the most part. Tragic.
