Such a phrase emphasizes that all homosexual behavior is disordered and mortally sinful.

The moniker "homosexual" implies nothing about whether or not that person is engaging in the objective mortal sin of homosexual acts, or not.  It plays into the disordered, modern view of SSA which completely ignores the most critical distinction between orientation and *behavior*.

(Note: I read the first post but not the entire thread.)
I don't think we should quibble here too much. Homosexual really just means some one who is attracted to members of the same sex.

No, it doesn't, *at all*.  In popular culture, "homosexual" means a person who engages in homosexual sex, or is in or has been in a homosexual relationship.  

That's why the term "same-sex attraction" was coined, really - to distinguish chaste people with SSA from homosexuals that act upon their disordered inclinations.
