Regarding so-called 'same sex marriage', note that homosexuals can NEVER be married in the eyes of God, despite any human laws to the contrary. Catholics should reject sinful 'laws' permitting such abominations as they are opposed to God's Law and even to nature itself (recall that marriage is designed for procreation, yet homosexuals can NEVER procreate in same-sex unions). The sin of Sodom is one of only a handful of sins that 'cry to heaven'. It is a VERY SERIOUS sin. [Note: For the American Catholic Lawyers Association, Inc. Press Release on Obergefell v. Hodges (the Supreme Court case that 'legalized' homosexual 'marriage' in the U.S.A.), try here.]

In Holy Scripture, God tells us that homosexual acts offend Him. Scripture calls such acts an abomination (see Lev. 18:22). Scripture also tells us that those who engage in such acts (and remain unrepentant) will NOT be allowed into heaven (see 1 Cor. 6:9-10). Scripture also tells us that those who participated in such acts "serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire" (see Jude 1:7). Scripture also recounts the events of Sodom and Gomorrah where God destroyed the city in punishment over this "wicked thing" (see Genesis, chapter 19).

Clearly, those who are unrepentant of homosexual acts and who have no intention of refraining from them seriously jeopardize their salvation. That is not to say that homosexuals cannot be forgiven for their actions. On the contrary, all sins can be forgiven – even grave sins involving homosexual acts – but repentance is necessary.

Those that think/hope God will change His mind on this or any other matter, are badly mistaken/deceived. Remember that change implies imperfection – whereas God is perfect and can NEVER change. It is IMPOSSIBLE for God to change. For more on the unchangeableness of God, try here.

Regarding 'gay conversion therapy', we are not qualified to give (or intending to give) medical or psychological advice, but if there are truly appropriate & effective treatments to reverse the disorder, might it not be wise to at least consider them? If it is possible to treat a disorder, why leave it untreated? [Again, we are not qualified to give or intending to give medical or psychological advice. For such advice, consult a good doctor(s).]

Reminder: Homosexual actions are sinful, but an inclination to homosexuality that is not desired or acted upon is not sinful. Also remember that while we must hate sin, we must simultaneously love sinners. Do not inflict or wish harm on homosexuals. Rather, pray that they live a chaste life.
