12 For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it.”

Bartholomew said: “A man who hath intercourse with a male, what is his vengeance?”
Jesus said, “The measure of the man who hath intercourse with males and of the man with whom he lieth, is the same as that of the blasphemer.*
“When then the time is completed through the sphere, the receivers of Yaldabaoth come after their soul, and he with his forty-and-nine demons taketh vengeance on it eleven years.
“Thereafter they carry it to the fire-rivers and seething pitch-seas, which are full of demons with pigs’ faces. They eat into them and take vengeance on [?] them in the fire-rivers another eleven years.
“Thereafter they carry them into the outer darkness until the day of judgment when the great darkness is judged; and then they will be dissolved and destroyed.”

I think the Catholic Church tried this approach and we can see how well it worked for them.
The etymology of wisdom comes from the Proto-Germanic root word weid- which means "to see". What is seen? The world around us. Earth is wisdom personified, a.k.a. Sophia. She is the true bride, not the church. To believe in false wisdom is to commit adultery and for man to "lie" with man.

So making someone be celibate is harmful in the long run? Since priests didn't marry they resorted to child molestation. Is that your argument? Honest question. If so, what makes you think homosexual celibacy would end up any different or less harmful? You advocate homosexuals never having sex with the same gender correct? So what makes you any different from the Catholic Church in that regard?
There is the literal eunuch and the metaphorical eunuch. The one made by man is the literal eunuch, the one who is castrated by someone else. The metaphorical is the one born a eunuch naturally, a homosexual.
Matt 19:9“And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”
10The disciples said to Him, “If the relationship of the man with his wife is like this, it is better not to marry.” 11But He said to them, “Not all men canaccept this statement, but only those to whom it has been given. 12“For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother’s womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it.”
