I realize that you weren't looking for a response on this (given your post immediately following), but since your comment was relevant to this thread, here's one anyway: God is a spirit. God also stepped into creation as a human being with a particular gender. "[S]exual preference and activity" absolutely ARE applied objective morals, as evidenced by the Scriptures and the illumined God-bearing Fathers that both handed them down and taught us how to read them.
Establishing the dichotomy that "because God is spirit only, it makes no sense to talk about His teachings on sexual preference and activity" is to essentially deny the Incarnation and the creation that God gave us to work out our salvation in.
By the way, the Church has dealt with the subject of Eunuchs in the first canon of the first ecumenical council, among other places.
Rdr Thomas, I believe you are unintentionally misconstruing my post. "because God is spirit only, it makes no sense to talk about His teachings on sexual preference and activity" are not my words really.
I wrote - First, I think that God is a spirit, and as a spirit, there is no logic in his having a set of definitive preferences in regard to sexuality. I do not think it is a part of say eternal virtues like love. So rather than thinking of sexual preference and activity as being applied objective morals, which brings to mind things that God himself would subscribe to, I think of these things that these are not eternally fixed. In this life, we are something, in heaven we go on to lack sexual desires altogether.
I meant for instance if you consider Christ's teaching on marital fidelity and adultery, while all of God's teaching can be said to be objective truths, that does not mean that all virtues are automatically forever immutable, fixed, and without exceptions. In that sense, I think orientation is a 'created virtue', so to speak. In the case of marriage, we see polygamy in the ancient days, now sacramental marriage, and in heaven, no marriage. And there can be exceptions - As you would probably say, the Ten Commandments are objective truths, but yet the Sabbath was made for man. I hope I'm kind of getting my point across. I do not understand your bringing up Jesus being born of a particular gender since you contradicted my statement and said sexual preference is objective moral truth but then went on to say you don't hold that Jesus had sexual preferences.
