QUAERITUR: Can I attend homosexual couple’s “baby shower”

From a reader:

My wife and I are working hard to follow Church teachings and obey our Lord. I have not been able to find a local priest that is orthodox in Church teachings. We therefore hope you can help us with guidance on the following:
Can I go to a baby shower for a Catholic Homosexual couple of whom a family member is a part of? Can I give a gift to the baby if I cant go?

I would say “No.”, and “No”.

You may not go.

You may not send a gift for the occasion.

Either gesture would be a sign that you condone what the couple is doing.

This is a sad state of affairs, I’m afraid.

Also, you have to revise your way of thinking about: “Catholic” homosexual couple.

If you are not sure about what to do, and you want other advice, ask your local bishop and let us know what he says.
