My lover is Catholic and pretty devoted to his faith. He told me he has just accepted that he's a sinner and he can't fight that, so that's how he seems to reconcile with his own sex life. I guess he feels like he's imperfect, so to enjoy his sinning while he can and not worry about it until it's time to meet his maker. That's how I interpreted what he said to me, but I will have to ask him more about that.
