Torturing children????? Theft????? What does ANY of this have to do with homosexuality?????
Well, I did not choose to be gay, and no one does. Yes, G-d (Blessed be S/He) made me gay. In addition, homosexuality is NOT a sin. However, your bigotry and hatred of G-d's gay and lesbian children certainly is a sin. And, I strongly suspect that it is YOU who will have to answer for this one day!
True, some individuals may very well be prone to homosexuality, just as some individuals are, according to the Bible,“prone to wrath.”(Titus 1:7) But the Bible still condemns displays of unrighteous anger.(Ephesians 4:31) Similarly, a Christian cannot excuse immoral behavior by saying he was ‘born that way.’ Child molesters invoke the same pathetic excuse when they say their craving for children is “innate.” But can anyone deny that their sexual appetite is perverted? So is the desire for someone of the same sex.
