  • Quote from: spouse of Jesus
     In a trad website there was a picture of 2 seminarians kissing, the website concluded that they were guilty of sodomy!
      I wonder if it is sinful for people of the same gender to kiss one an other. It is a costom here in my country, and men embrace, shake hands and kiss when they meet, so do womem, And nobody thinks it is bad.
      Is it really sinful?


    It depends on the context as well.  Why are they kissing?  Is it in the context of a greeting or what?  This would help to determine. Secondly, kissing is not sodomy.  What website were you referring to?

  •   It was TIA. My intention for making this thread was not to tell if trad websites were right or wrong (that kissing on TIA was horrible!) I just wanted to know if there was a ban on such things in catholicism.

  • There is nothing wrong with a man kissing another man on the cheek as a greeting. In fact, Judas used a kiss to betray Jesus (it was the custom and still in the East to to greet with a kiss).

    But a man should not be kissing another man on the lips, It is abormal behavior for a man's nature.
