Two verses in Scripture show UNREPENTANT sodomites are in hell. Do not tolerate the lies of Satan,
even if all the world approves and these end days, they makes sodomy legal. You do not know your last day, get right with God.
Catholics have to do more than a truly repentant personal confession to God, they must go to Confession.

2 Peter 2:4-6
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but delivered them, drawn down by infernal ropes to the lower hell, unto torments, to be reserved unto judgment: 5 And spared not the original world, but preserved Noe, the eighth person, the preacher of justice, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. 6 And reducing the cities of the Sodomites, and of the Gomorrhites, into ashes, condemned them to be overthrown, making them an example to those that should after act wickedly.
2 Peter 2:4-6: Peter also reveals that the Sodomites are suffering in hell for their sins by comparing the Sodomites’ punishment to the eternal punishment of the evil angels. Just as God did not spare the angels when they sinned but cast them into hell, so He did the same with the Sodomites when He “condemned them to extinction and made them an example to those who were to be ungodly.”
I will therefore admonish you, though ye once knew all things, that Jesus, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, did afterwards destroy them that believed not: 6 And the angels who kept not their principality, but forsook their own habitation, he hath reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgment of the great day. 7 As Sodom and Gomorrha, and the neighboring cities, in like manner, having given themselves to fornication, and going after other flesh, were made an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire.
Jude 5-7: Like Peter, Jude confirms that the Sodomites are in hell by saying that they had the same fate as the evil angels. Jude says just as the evil angels were condemned to hell, the Sodomites “likewise” (Greek, hos) acted immorally and are undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. “Undergoing” (Greek, upechousai) is a present participle which means their suffering is ongoing. See also the clear polarity between those who are saved (v.5) and those who are condemned (vv. 6-7,11,13).
Homosexuality is a genetic, inborn condition, no matter how much you'd like for it to NOT be that. It is.
People are BORN that way.

You may be told to believe i am an abomination, and my sexuality a Sin, but that is not my reality, nor my belief so which is correct? you say it's your god, someone says it's their god, you say all sinners are abominations and all people sin, yet straight people are not abominations?

LOVE the sinner, not the grave sin (meaning mortal to your eternal life) that is sodomy. Sodomy comes from the word Sodom. God's just judgment came to Sodom and it is coming to our country. Our country has legalized abominable mortal sins against God.
Get right with God, repent, confess any mortal sins to God and pray.

You Are Nothing Without Me
America is in trouble, for she has gone the way of the harlots and no longer feels any shame for her misdeeds. She is prideful and boasts of her great power and for this reason, I shall cast her power to the ground and it shall become as nothing. No longer shall she lord her might over the poor and downtrodden.
America boasts of being a savior of others, yet she cannot save herself. She has not rescued herself from moral decay and the filth of her sins. Nay, she proudly displays them, passing laws for all to see her shamefulness.
You have turned from My ways, America, and now I shall turn from you. You will see that you are nothing without Me, the God of Israel. Your sins have become your gods, so I will give you to them, that you may see what you have chosen.
Those who lead you shall err and lead you into destruction, for /She has not rescued herself from moral decay and the filth of her sins. Nay, she proudly displays them, passing laws for all to see her shamefulness.
This is My plan. ....

I was thinking of you. Click on this link, and hit "listen" it's a Catholic Answers radio hour where people call in at a certain point with questions.
The subject is the Trinity. Skip past introductions and listen to young Father Gaitley help you and me
understand (simply stated) about the mystery of the Trinity. Then, people call in with questions.
You can listen and look at ATS, etc. I learned things.
Father loved this paragraph from Catechism. The Trinity is a communion of love...
Catechism of the Catholic Church:
But St. John goes even further when he affirms that "God is love": God's very being is love. By sending his only Son and the Spirit of Love in the fullness of time, God has revealed his innermost secret: God himself is an eternal exchange of love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he has destined us to share in that exchange.

That's a good start on a comprehensive listing of how people react to homosexuality. Do you mind if I babble a bit? It's stuff you've heard before, though.
It seems to me fairly obvious that all of us have one or more areas of weakness, some "sin type" that we're more susceptible to. Some have said they all boil down to a twisted or inflamed sense of pride, some say it's the desire to put something above God, but whatever, it's there. Anger, greed, lust, sloth, you know the list.
The Catholic Church (and I agree), says that God loves all of us, and if He does, then we should be following His example. We should help each other, and pray, that whatever their problem sin is, they can overcome it. The Church does not criticize any one for being homosexual, any more than they criticize someone who is fighting anger issues.
They do view sex outside of marriage as a sin. (Nope, I'm not going to get into the various distinctions) I find the Church's position to be both loving and hopeful, just and helpful.

- that is a clear, kind post, FA
you know, this s not so much about homosexuality in perticular,
but about ánything that can keep a soul away from Him.
Anything, that is fortifying the Self of a person.
.. and that 'anything' can have myriad Forms -
who was struck down dead immediately, after his Self directly Opposed God ? - ananias
and why ? - Greed
..because Greed is , after Pride, thé archenemy of His love -which 'gives'
so, He is angry about "anything" which imprisons that soul,
....yet some of those things are móre Dangerous - because they imprison that soul Deeper - then others.
- a murderer may have acted out of heart insanity for a moment ;
and his soul is tortured by that 1 moment,
but yet he may be closer to Him, as a luxury living believer.
...years ago, i had a most Vivid dream ;
i entered underneath earth in a halfdark, castle-like large low cellar,
a fireplace gave golden shadows over the people sitting there to long wooden tables,
it had all a medeival sphere,
But with each of the persons was something Wrong ;
one was counting his golden money at the table, his hands were grotesque, as his eyes,
his nature had becóme 'greed' , and showed in the parts of his body
so each person had the Deformation, according to their sin
i knew it wasnt ' hell ' where i was,
but the [fleshy] natures of realtime people, above ground level
or, their Self
..and He expects from every believer to WANT [!] to get Rid of Self
- that is, ' agreeing that it needs to get Rid of '... so He can execute that.
..the danger of a soul, trying to Jústify [his] homosexuality is,
that the person will tálk about ' jesus' - yet never Meet Him.
Because his Self can talk about Him
- yet his soul wont see Him.
i ve found, that there are many types of smaller 'entities' who can sustain many types of addictions and sins;
- but those cannot Fortify the Self so much, as Pride...and homosexuality.
..since the both latter are the nature of the Fallen ones, themsélves.
i wish you best,
Wouldnt it imprison the soul to not be who you are therefore not being happy? I think that would make a person bitter and turn away from "god".
Judge not, lest ye be judged. Condemn not, lest ye be condemned.
The Church recognizes that some have a sexual attraction to members of their own sex. That's not condemned, it's accepted as a reality of existence. The Church also recognizes that a far greater number have a sexual attraction to members of the opposite sex. Both of these are seen as facts and morally neutral.
The church is treating that person like they have a cold or something. Like they can just not be gay with the right training and counceling. Thats BS. That person is who they are. They shouldnt be treated like they are sick, because they arent.
THE SACRAMENT OF MATRIMONY
1601 "The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament."
1602 Sacred Scripture begins with the creation of man and woman in the image and likeness of God and concludes with a vision of "the wedding-feast of the Lamb." Scripture speaks throughout of marriage and its "mystery," its institution and the meaning God has given it, its origin and its end, its various realizations throughout the history of salvation, the difficulties arising from sin and its renewal "in the Lord" in the New Covenant of Christ and the Church.
1603 "The intimate community of life and love which constitutes the married state has been established by the Creator and endowed by him with its own proper laws. . . . God himself is the author of marriage." The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator. Marriage is not a purely human institution despite the many variations it may have undergone through the centuries in different cultures, social structures, and spiritual attitudes. These differences should not cause us to forget its common and permanent characteristics. Although the dignity of this institution is not transparent everywhere with the same clarity, some sense of the greatness of the matrimonial union exists in all cultures. "The well-being of the individual person and of both human and Christian society is closely bound up with the healthy state of conjugal and family life."
1604 God who created man out of love also calls him to love the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being. For man is created in the image and likeness of God who is himself love. Since God created him man and woman, their mutual love becomes an image of the absolute and unfailing love with which God loves man. It is good, very good, in the Creator's eyes. And this love which God blesses is intended to be fruitful and to be realized in the common work of watching over creation: "And God blessed them, and God said to them: 'Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it.'"
1605 Holy Scripture affirms that man and woman were created for one another: "It is not good that the man should be alone." The woman, "flesh of his flesh," his equal, his nearest in all things, is given to him by God as a "helpmate"; she thus represents God from whom comes our help. "Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh." The Lord himself shows that this signifies an unbreakable union of their two lives by recalling what the plan of the Creator had been "in the beginning": "So they are no longer two, but one flesh."
