Pope John Paul II Speaks About Homosexuality

Vatican January 25, 1999 (LSN), Last Thursday, John Paul II addressed officials and lawyers from the Tribunal of the Roman Rota on the occasion of the opening of the judical year.  He took the opportunity to speak about the incongruity of homosexuality.   After noting that the only appropriate form of conjugal union comes within marriage, the pope said, "one sees the incongruity of pretending to give conjugal dimensions to the union between persons of the same sex."

"Such union is to be opposed," he continued, "above all because of the objective impossibility of being fruitful in the transmission of life, according to the plan inscribed by God in the very structure of the human being."  John Paul also noted that among persons of the same sex "there is an absence of those interpersonal complementary dimesnions which the Creator willed, both on the physical and biological level, as well as in the eminently psychological plan, between man and woman."

To those who would appeal to human freedom to justify homosexuality the pope said, "To think of liberty as a moral permissiveness or the ability to infringe the law, is to twist its true nature." "Liberty, in fact, consists in the ability of the human being to acknowledge he is responsible in other words, that as an individual he can choose to do the will of God as expressed in the law, bringing himself ever closer to be the image of his creator.
