The catechism's section on homosexual acts.
To the Catholic Sentinel:

The problem with all homosexual couplings is the act of sodomy itself. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states “tradition has always declared that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. They are contrary to natural law.” Sodomy is gravely immoral and a mortal sin.

The Church is now attacked from every side, and even from within, for trying to maintain the humility and sexual virtue of Christianity rather than glorifying all the passions that the institution has labored so many centuries to restrain.

Mortal sin destroys charity in the heart of the sinner. It is impossible to even attempt to fulfill the first Commandment, while clinging to such a grievous sin.
