That's because homosexuality is not a mortal sin, rather it's the sexual appetite being ordered towards an inappropriate end.

Quote:The CCC attempts to draw a distinction between the person and the sinful acts.  If I have repented of the acts, why then must I still bear their title as my identity?

I guess it depends on whether you define homosexuals as people who sleep with members of the same sex or are attracted to members of the same sex. I don't think that the catechism is saying that homosexuals, chaste or not, should view their sexuality as a defining characteristic of their identity.
