Does anybody believe that homosexuality is a sin

Report as
bradahh

Not at all. People are born homosexual. It's not a choice. Why would god create them to unwillingly be forced into a life of sin?

People are not born homosexual, lol thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard. Its one thing to sin but to say God made you that way? Blasphemy!
Tell God that on your day of judgement and prepare for h*ll.

Well actually there is plenty of scientific research to suggest that homosexuals are born with an imbalance of x and y chromosomes. Same as people who are born as one gender, but with the reproductive organs of the opposite gender. It is a type of birth defect if you will... One that develops early in the fetal stages. No murderers make a conscious decision to take a life. Regardless of the mental illness that may have led to such a decision...it is still a decision. To compare a homosexual to a murderer is the the most ignorant, judgmental, narrow-minded, and asinine comparison I have ever had the displeasure of hearing. Why is it that the people that follow a religion that preaches against judging are always the first to throw stones?
Report as
Because they are not good Christians, Or Catholics, or whatever.

Brad...great post. Judge least ye be judged! It never ceases to amaze me that the Christain "posers" can interrupt the Bible in ways that are unbelievable. For a faith that preaches forgiveness they are so full of judgmental hate. You almost want to feel sorry for them.

Personally no, but I would hope that everyone who asks this would ask the question so that it can distinguish between what you mean and what you're saying. Most people believe that homosexuality is not a sin.... it's simply the attraction you have for a member of the same sex. Acting on the attraction is where most people begin to label it as a sin.

I don't believe homosexuality is a sin. They can't help how they are born and who they like. Bisexuality on the other hand is a choice. Even though they like both sexes they can choose to only love the opposite sex.

@Omar: I have been a gay rights activist for about ten years, and one of the first things I learned is that anyone who stands up for gays is often assumed to be gay. While for some it just comes from a place of ignorance, I feel that some people wield that label as a weapon to discourage others from speaking up.

I do not believe in the concept of sin. I acknowledge the moral distinctions of right, wrong, and infinite shades of gray in-between. Having a same-sex orientation is no more wrong or right than having an opposite-sex orientation. They just are. Same-sex attraction has been with the human species since recorded history, and is pervasive throughout the animal kingdom of which we are a part.

(See 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Leviticus 20:13) The Bible brings out that homosexuality is a gross sin that God condemns, just like fornication (sex before marriage), adultery (sex with someone other than your marriage mate), and bestiality (sex with animals; Deuteronomy 27:21). It also mentions how some who became Christians formerly practiced these gross sins and changed their way. This shows that practicing homosexuality is a learned behavior just like practicing any other gross sin. 1 John 4:8 says God is love, therefore he will not ask us to do anything that we are not capable of doing. If one professes to be a true Christian, one will heed the Bible's counsel daily. This is easier said than done, but God promises to help his loyal servants with any temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13)
