What The Church Teaches about Sexual Intimacy
The Catholic church teaches that sexuality is a gift and that sexual acts must respect the dignity of each person. Sexual acts have two functions they are both unitive and procreative. Unitive meaning that the couple is brought together in a special way. Procreative means that sexual intercourse has the potential to create new life. Homosexual acts can not be performed at all. The church teaches this because we are created with dignity and worth that gives us rights,responsibilities and uniqueness.
