God never called a person with a birth defect or mental illness,an abomination. So, I am not sure what your saying here. He DID call the act of homosexuality, an abomination.<quoted text>
"Homosexual means that you have an attraction to your own sex. Being "gay" means that you are are actively practicing."
I never heard that particular distinction. Perhaps cpeter can enlighten us further on the proper definitions. I usually hear the terms being used interchangeably.
"Why would you compare that to a birth defect or a mental illness?. Where does God call either an abomination?."
Because you had written: "Why would God create someone gay and then turn around and call their act "an abomination"? And so in using your same vernacular as in "Why would God create someone..." and asked you then why would God "create" anyone with physical or mental defects? Obviously a question we can't answer if we attribute our very existence to being created by God.
"Would you compare adultery or stealing to them?."
Ridiculous. A person is born a homosexual. A person is born with a physical defect. A person is a not born an adulterer or a thief, at least not that I know of anyway.
Your opinion says that a person is born being a homsexual. Not fact.
Is a person who goes both ways(attracted to men and women) born that way too? Half a gay gene?. There are former gay folksnwho still may have tendencies but will clearly understand that it is not acceptable to God and are okay with that. In fact, there are gays who claim that they were NOT born that way (the one from sex and the city said that.
