Should a Chaste Catholic with Same Sex Attraction “Celebrate” their Gayness? – An interview with Fr. Paul Check

Is it appropriate for two people who are same-sex attracted to live together chastely and offer each other support? Should a Catholic who is same-sex attracted view their orientation as a gift from God or a cross to bear? We discuss the issues with Fr. Paul Check, founder of Courage.

Fr. Paul has been the Executive Director of Courage International since 2008. He established a Courage chapter in the Diocese of Bridgeport in 2002. He holds an STL from the University of the Holy Cross and an STB from the Gregorian University.
