Catholics/Incest and Lesbians

Question
Is incest and female homosexuality ever mentioned in the Bible?

Answer
In Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition are two series of relevant materials:

1- Sex beyond legitimate marriage is evil.  Sixth Commandment applies.
2- Homosexuality is specifically mentioned as evil.  See: Gen 19:1-29; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10;
  1 Tim 1:10.  Also: Congregation for Doctrine of the Faith, Persona Humana.

Check the further info in the Catechism, paragraphs, 2331-2359, 2364-2365, 2380-239-2400.

Hope all well with you, Charles.

Until later.
