Doctor of the Church on homosexuality

With all that I can offer the subject immediately;
that carnal desires out of placement with Respect toward
His Sacred Covenant;
no one has documented the further explanation better than
Saint Gregory the Great -

As with this; consider ones memory - effective with illicit pictures?

Additional: 'It is true that Augustine, Gregory the Great, and Thomas Aquinas, like Immanuel Kant after them, believed that one should not lie in any circumstance.' - p.89 Dale C. Allison The Sermon on The Mount. The Crossroad Publishing Company (C) 1999

Thank You-
Rather God Bless his SoulKeepers.

Saint Gregory the Great delves deeper into the symbolism of the fire and brimstone that God used to punish the sodomites: “Brimstone calls to mind the foul odors of the flesh, as Sacred Scripture itself confirms when it speaks of the rain of fire and brimstone poured by the Lord upon Sodom.

II, p. 371, Ibid., p. 7)
