Catholics and homosexuality
Father Hardon's Catholic dictionary has a good entry on homosexuality:
Fr. Hardon's Catholic dictionary:
In general, some form of sexual relationship among members of the same
sex. From a moral standpoint, three levels are to be distinguished:
tendency, attraction, and activity. Homosexual tendencies in any
person are within the normal range of human nature, whose fallen
condition includes every conceivable kind impulse that with sincere
effort and divine grace can be controlled. Sexual attraction for
members of the same sex may be partly due to the peculiar make-up of
certain individuals or, more often, the result of indiscretion or
seduction and presents a graver problem; yet this, too, [b]is not by
itself sinful and may in fact be an occasion for great supernatural
merit.
When the condition is pathological, it requires therapy.
Active homosexuality is morally indefensible and has been many times
forbidden in revelation and the teaching of the Church. The most
extensive declaration on the subject was the Congregation for the
Doctrine of the Faith, approved by Pope Paul VI on November 7, 1975.[/b]

And here is a good Michael Voris video on the subject:
