Reddit user and student of a Catholic High School, averagesmurf, was asked to write an essay explaining why the church’s stance on homosexuality is correct.

He told Reddit that he wrote a 127-page paper titled “Gay Marriage is Fabulous” instead.

He originally planned to write an essay on how Jesus would be a supporter of same-sex marriage, but was told he must write it in support of the Church’s view.

He explained he recently came out, and said there was “no way” he could write that paper.

So here's the paper he did write:

In the essay, he writes:

It has become evident--through laborious and rigorous study, work, and reflection--that Christ never condemned homosexuality, God never condemned homosexuality, and nor does the Bible condemn homosexuality. There is no evidence that the Bible condemns loving relationships, but rather lust, violence, and greed.

The very notion that, in any way, the Bible even remotely condemns loving, gay individuals or their right to marry, is ridiculous and unsupported. Therefore, to suggest that God or Jesus would ever object to a loving, devoted, loyal marriage between two same sex individuals is laughable. On the contrary, Jesus Christ would never condemn love.
