But the Worst of All Passions
Is the Lust between Men

In the wake of the sinful Supreme Court ruling on June 26, 2015 approving same-sex “marriage,” we continue to present laws and writings by Saints and statesmen of the past against the sins against nature that cry to Heaven for vengeance.
Commenting on the Epistle to the Romans (1:26-27), the great St. John Chrysostom said that the act of sodomy is an unpardonable offense against nature. In fact, he argued that there was no more depraved act than this.

St. John Chrysostom

"All passions are dishonorable, for the soul is even more damaged and degraded by sin than the body is by disease. But the worst of all passions is lust between men. ... The sins against nature are more problematic and less satisfying, so much so that one cannot even say that they procure pleasure, since true pleasure is only that which is according to nature. But when God abandons a man, everything is turned on its head! Therefore, not only are such [homosexual]passions satanic, but their lives are diabolic ...

"So, I say to you that they [the homosexuals] are even worse than murderers, and that it would be better to die than to live in such dishonor. A murderer only separates the soul from the body, whereas these [homosexuals] destroy the soul inside the body. ....

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, more absurd or damaging than this perversity."

(St. John Chrysostom, In Epistulam ad Romanos 4,
apud Atila S. Guimaraes, Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia, TIA, 2004, pp. 24-25)
