Sexual Diversity and the Catholic Church

When people speak of "sexual diversity" one might mistakenly assume that "sexuality diversity" is slang for the diversity of sexual partners one might have over a life time or slang for the different sexual experiences to be had in the  Kama Sutra or slang for the differnt locals a person might be able to engage in sexual activity or even slang for the "spicing up" of a couple's sex life.  Still one might assume that "sexual" is used in the older sense in which 'sex' meant man or woman and in doing so mistakenly think "sexual diversity" is about the differences between a man and woman.  However, this is not the case.  When groups speak of "sexual diversity" it is often jargon for the promotion of a once forbidden taboo which is now to be pushed and forced upon the masses as a cultural norm in regards to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender sexual acts.

Those people who speak of sexual diversity fail to see a fundamental truth in the sexual intercourse between man and woman: it is, always has been, and always will be ineffably diverse.  Sex, for those individuals who promote the diverse kind, is reduced to a mere collision of body parts.  The soul, tossed out and ignored like last season's fads, is forsaken for the body and in doing so true diversity -- true sexual diversity is missed.  For what makes real diversity, the thing that makes every person an ineffable mystery of God, is not allow to take part in the conversation. 

As a result, diversity is limited to personal preferences, and in doing so, diversity undergoes a soft violence by means of the illogic of moral relativism -- that self defeating argument that states the only truth is that there are no truths.  The out come is the fortification of the credo of relativism, and no longer is virtue or truth sought. Instead, virtue and truth are replace by sentiments and pleasant platitudes.  Furthermore why exactly is sexual diversity limited to the human species?  One would expect that in the open mindedness of relativism and in the guise of diversity that other species, phyla, genus, and kingdoms would be invited to the table.  For what might the sea cucumber say on sexual diversity?  What might lion say on the issue of sexual diversity?  Why might the slug or chicken say of sexual diversity?  What might those who prefer cross species sexual diversity bring to the table?

The fact that two Catholic universities have to have a conference about the issues of sexual diversity based not on the teaching of the church but on how a gay, bi, transgendered person lives out being Catholic is ridiculous.  The Catholic church asks the same of all unmarried people whether they are gay, bi, transgendered, or straight.  Sexual acts and reserved for those who are married and have celebrated the sacrament of matrimony.
