Thank you for your thoughtful reply.
I was reacting to what I consider a judgment of the Bible that is not accurate. I still think you have a very negative opinion without understanding. Something you might want to consider.
I agree with you that homosexuality in and of itself is amoral. I don't thing it is a choice except in rare cases.
I was not speaking of my opinion of morality or yours. I was simply saying that sexual morality in the Bible is very clear and consistent. It is meant to be expressed within the bounds of marriage between a man and woman.
As to evolution and homosexuality, your assertion that it is a method of population control is simply unscientific and unnecessary. War and starvation have beat homosexuality to the punch regarding population control, and will continue to do so.
I would suggest you read up on mating behavior and the degree of influence it has on animal and human life.
I'm not trying to be rude, but you also have some incorrect ideas about genetics and DNA.
Finally, I did not speak of the cross cultural constraint of marriage in the Biblical sense, but rather a scientific perspective.
However, your assertion that intercourse 'consummates' a Biblical marriage is untrue. It is true that the Bible asserts there is much more than just a physical union when sex occurs.
From the perspective of evolution and mating behavior, homosexuality is a defective conflict with the primary goal. That is simply a fact.
I am an old man who is still learning, I would suggest that you hold the same attitude, especially at your age.
Smile.
I hold the same opinion as you do in terms of the Bible. The Bible does clearly state that marriage is between a man and a woman. And it is pretty clear in terms of it's restrictions on sexual morality.

However.

One must also bear in mind that marriage in itself predates christianity, and indeed all other abrahamic religions, and that homosexuality has been widely accepted by a multitude of cultures, where it is not seen as immoral.

I agree with you about evolution, however I just don't understand why that is a necessary argument in terms of modern society. As in the present day those of us lucky enough to live in prosperity in the western world don't have to "fight to survive" or worry about starvation. Therefore, as we live in a loophole to Darwin's theory, why should it matter whom we mate with aslong as it is legal and consenting?

From a scientific perspective, homosexuality is a gray area, because the cause of it hasn't been pinpointed, however many scientists believe it to be a mixture of genetic and environmental influences that cause it. By being on the homosexual spectrum to an extent, I am able to sympathise with those who are homosexual, lesbian, pansexual, transgendered, and so on. Because I know how it feels to be outside the "hetero-normative" of this world. And I can honestly say that it is painful, to know that you are different to everyone else, and that you will always be that one "gay" or whatever person in the eyes of everyone else. All the "LGBT community" want, from my experience, is just to be treated fairly and tolerated to an extent.

In terms of genetics and DNA, now THAT is a whole other topic. Due to things such as Le Chapelle's syndrome and other genetic disorders which can skew one's idea of what is "male" or "female", and in consequence make it difficult for one to pinpoint what is "homosexual" or "heterosexual".

I have spent a lifetime studying the Bible. I find the continuity between 60 books by 40 authors over hundreds of years amazing. Even more so, is the scientific and prophetic intricacies that permeate it.

Marriage has been present in every single culture in known human history. I hate to say it, but homosexuality has not been accepted in any culture from start to finish. Not one single one. It appears for brief periods, usually at the end of a culture.

In fact, one of the interesting things in the Law is that killing children, bestiality and homosexuality are the three 'abominations' that cause God to end a culture.

As to the idea of a evolutionary 'loophole', you really need to study up on mating behavior. You also have a myopic view of social engineering evolution. Do you really think we are the first culture that tried to control evolution? Yes, we are doing it scientifically in new ways... with corresponding back lashes.

Moreover, no one is denying any relationships. But the word marriage designates one that stands distinct from friendship. At its bare essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior; a male and female, committing for life primarily because of a likely procreated child. Moreover, I gay couple cannot mate, a clear sign of a evolutionary defect.

You might want to look up info on epi-marker discoveries, very likely the cause of homosexuality. I also have cause to be interested in sexual disorders, my name KiMare'a is a play on a genetic chimera. I am also a hermaphrodite. And I have three nipples, hence the tag 'monster mutation'...

I have found that honestly facing who I am has been essential in dealing with my mutations. I would suggest that denying a condition and imposing a imposter relationship on marriage is not a good thing for anyone...

Did you know that social scientists have identified over 200 distinctions in the spectrum between masculinity and femininity. And the that GLBT fall smack dab in the middle at about 4%? That a transexual is probably the exact middle, a body of one gender, but the brain of another? Or a bisexual, in just the mind, that goes either way?
