Sam27 saidLet's not forget about our Saints Sergius and Bacchus! They both were gay men, I believe the Orthodox and Catholic leaders are living in denial.
It's not that they are in denial they are just asking the same thing they require of all their members - chastity. For married members chastity is no sex with anyone other than your marriage partner. For those who take a vow of celibacy that means sex with no one. For single members that means no sex until you're married. For gay members that means no sex until you're married (in the church) with a member of the opposite sex - in essence, never. There are some gay people of faith who can accept this teaching. I for one cannot.
I also do not think it fair to attribute a sexual relationship to Servius and Bacchus. None of us living knew them nor were they caught in flagrante dilecto.
