There is No Such Thing as a Homosexual Catholic Priest

A little leavening leavens the whole loaf.  The then Cardinal Ratzinger rightly points out the state of things while missing the cause of the state of things. As you pointed out (to my very great appreciation) the source of the term homosexual has no source in the faith. Created to explain as natural that which the Church always properly defined as a horrible sin. Its like bemoaning the fact that there are so many hornets flying around while you hold the nest in your hand. If the modern cccs compilers want to defeat the sin then stop using terminology that masks its true discription. Alice or Deitrich Von Hildebrande had the same opinion of the term (although for the life of me I cant locate the quote on the web, but Im sure I read it in a Remnant article)
The term homosexual should be expunged and replaced with a clearer term or go back to sodomitic.
Is there a Latin word for this?
I don't thing that Cardinal Ratzinger failed to assess the cause of things. He is very careful to delineate the questionable motives behind the expression's applications. I am certainly dense because I don't sense any "reform of the reform" confusion--at least not in any of its typical manifestations. For goodness sake, Cardinal Ratzinger boldly says that it should come as no surprise when people commit violence against sodomites! No, there is no traditional Latin term for this precisely, and the closest I can come up with is appetitum turbidum. I'm gathering that Catholic Johnny thinks that molles is applicable. It's a dangerous word and one that is easily lends itself to misinterpretation which is all the more reason why it was appropriate for the Church to respond to it. I think, at least in these two documents, the Church has. Sodomitic is not a good term either since those who do not engage in sodomy are not sodomites.

Edit: He's going even further than that apparently James02. According to what I've followed, no person who experiences homosexual temptations and chastely moderates them and persists in "self-identifying" himself with the accurate psychological pathology that applies to him (i.e. homosexual) is a Christian.
