              Shall They Be Put to Death?
 The Homosexual Person and Christianity

    First edition: Cartafilus Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary, 1997.

    (216 pages)


    The thesis to be proved in the book

    The man or woman with exclusively and irreversibly homosexual orientation developing independently of his/her free intentional choice is a creation of full value whom God created with His deliberate will to what he/she is; neither their sexual orientation differing from the usual, nor living it in an adequate way (stable, closed, monogamous partnership in which, beside the mutual spiritual self-giving, bodily union also takes place regularly) is to be counted as an occasional sin or a permanent condition of sin, so a believer of such condition of life can be given sacramental absolution based on the moral norms analogous to his/her heterosexual brethren living in the sacrament of marriage, and they can participate in the eucharistic community as a full citizen of God’s Kingdom and an expectant of salvation.
