Homoism is a highly disordered sin and as such can be conquered through prayer,fasting and the salvivic nature of Our Lords Passion and is the case with sin in general,some of course being worse than others.Homoism is  not a fixed anthropological state of being as society would have us believe

Is that a new word?  Homoism?

I don't think anyone on this thread has said homosexual acts are not gravely sinful.  That's not the question.  The question at hand is if one can be a Christian and a "homosexual" by the dictionary definition of the term.  CJ claims they cannot.

Yes,homism is a new word.I cant be bothered to type the other one...too long.

Should the dictionary really be the final arbitrator in this matter??

In the matter of this thread?  Absolutely.

We should assume the Church publishes documents using the correct meaning of words, not transient cultural ones.  If the term "homosexual" is used in a Church document, it should be assumed the dictionary definition is meant unless it is clearly otherwise from context.

ETA, and if CJ ever answers my question on what he would find acceptable, we will get into why it says "homosexual persons" and why the meaning of words are important.

Ah,ok then....
Well,if indeed the Church is using the anthropological definition(the OP suggests this is the case,i need to verify)  than the Church in this instance is quite wrong to do so imo and as such the limited naturalistic parameters of debate almost make it a futile one.Do I have it correct that the Church has indeed adopted this naturalistic definition? Apologies if wrong in advance.

[edit] In this age of "diabolical disorientation" (Sister Lucy) I really can't presume to accept at face value ,how the Church defines much of anything these days unless upholding already defined Dogma etc....but that's just me...
