Examples of homosexual in a Sentence

  1. Chris Hensley:

    It's more about power than sex, these men don't see what they're doing as homosexual, and they will leave their incarceration heterosexual.

  2. John Boswell:

    The New Testament takes no demonstrable position on homosexuality.

  4. Pope Francis:

    Within Catholic Church, there is a tough group of conservative bishops and priests and cardinals, and also very traditionalist bishops and cardinals who are practically against the Pope, who are working against The Pope, they don't like what The Pope wanted to do with the synod about family, to give new possibilities to remarried and divorced people to get the communion, or to have a new look on the homosexual union.

  5. Monsignor Krysztof Olaf Charamsa:

    Every homosexual person is a son of God, this is the will of God for our life, also for my life with him.
