Sex.

Sex is not a sin.

Sex is not the reason for the fall of humanity.
Humanity is not fallen.

Sex is the consummation of love.

Homosexual love and heterosexual love are equally valid and identical.

It is best, however, to refrain from sex when:
                             1.  The object of desire has not given their permission.
                             2.  Sexual activity violates vows:
                                                       (a)  marriage vows.
                                                       (b)  vows of sexual chastity.

Why?

Out of respect for the object of desire (the beloved).

Love brings with it both desire and respect.
Discipline honors that respect.

God's law is love.
Love overcomes fear.
Love transcends fear.

What do you feel for the one you love?

Love.

Desire.

Concern.

Respect.

Passion.

Generosity.

Forgiveness.

The desire to communicate.

The desire for union (marriage).

The desire to share yourself.

Affection.

Intimacy.

Joy.
