Homosexuality, "objectively disordered", "differently ordered", Father James Martin, etc.

10 years ago classes I taught on Catholicism and homosexuality went viral on the gay blogosphere, putting me in the middle of an issue I had never imagined.

I said then (and still say) that if I could change one phrase in the English translation of the Catechism it would be the phrase in paragraph 2358 (see image below)

The proper English phrase should be, philosophically speaking, “not properly ordered”.

BUT Fr James Martin’s proposal is disastrously wrong. He wants “differently ordered”, which of course, as he knows, takes the discussion away from what attractions SHOULD be ordered to.
