Sins and Sexuality by Patrick Attard (Times of Malta, July 26, 2007)

Dave Bones's contribution, God Created Them Male And Female (July 21), quotes the Genesis and other verses of the Bible to show "God's dislike of homosexuals".

First of all, I hope Mr Bones isn't naive enough to believe that the world was created in a week. Secondly, homosexual acts are considered as grave sins against chastity by the Catholic Church since no child can be conceived during such an act. Similar sins, which fall in the same category, are the use of condoms and oral sex between heterosexual couples and masturbation. It is pointless to pick on five per cent of the population if more than 70 per cent are committing similar sins.

The most interesting case is when one person who has, even once in his life, committed the grave sin of masturbation who picks on gays. That would really be the ultimate case of the pot calling the kettle black.
