Ms McAleese, herself a committed Catholic, went on to say: ‘The Church describes homosexual acts as intrinsically evil. I would regard the Church’s teaching as disorderly and intrinsically evil. Why is it intrinsically evil? Because it conduces to homophobia.
‘Look at the language that is used — “the homosexuality is disordered”. Who wants to believe that their God-given nature is disordered? That homosexual acts, how they express their love in a loving relationship, for example…that that is regarded as intrinsically evil. I don’t think so.
