Anyone who actually believes the Bible speaks for a God of some sort is out of his or her mind.
Both the Bible and the Qur'an (if you're going to insult somebody, at least get the spelling right) both affirm a Creator. If there is no creator, the only other option is evolution.

Since some people have said that homosexuality is a further step in evolution, does this mean that eventually there will be no more procreation causing our eventual extinction?

If this is true, does this mean that evolution is actually our worst enemy?

If it is our worst enemy, does this mean that heterosexuality, borne out of a foundation of morality, will be what's needed to save mankind?

Wow! Not bad for a Plumber!

You're on the wrong forum. We're discussing homosexuality NOT pedophilia! Until you learn that very basic difference you'll never get anywhere.
I would like to see all pedophiles locked up forever! But it has NOTHING-ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the topic at hand.
My point is that both are products of a depraved mind and acts of rebellion against Holy God.

God and I are pretty cool, we talk daily. The God I have faith in is probably the same exact God others of faith turn to.
Maybe I'm not as religious or as beloved by God because the message I get from God is that I should put my energies into helping others and showing compassion, not using the Bible as a weapon to smite those I decided aren't worthy.
I'm not gay, never had a leaning that way and never will. But I know with the problems we face in our lives and in our world, there are much more important things to focus on than who a person curls up with in bed every night.
is homosexuality wrong?
for me, yes it is. for someone else... it's their decision to make.
My question to you is - do you believe this abnormal behavior should be taught to small children that no little or nothing about the difference between right and wrong? If your answer is no...my next question to you is - if you truly have a personal relationship with JEHOVAH God through our Lord Jesus Christ, shouldn't you be represented the thoughts and Words of God concerning this issue?

Well, if you think putting your penis in the rectum of another man is wrong ... or if you think a man sucking on another man's penis is wrong ...

then, yes, it's wrong.

Of course, those who actually do it, don't think it's wrong because ... well, who thinks that anything they do wrong is actually wrong, right?

We're all susceptible to demons ... that's right, demons ... or if it makes you happy, let's call it evil. Some of us are more prone to lie, or steal, or kill, or get rich off of the suffering of others, or have sex with the same sex.

As for women and homosexuality ... it doesn't exist. It's not sex ... or rather, intercourse. A women CAN'T [email protected] another woman. Hence, the origin of AIDS/HIV (transmitted sexually) was "bisexual" men [email protected] other men who had it and then giving it to women. Who in turn, can now give it to straight men.

Thank you.
Many, many people lose their spouse to all sorts of things, mine was cancer.
The sad reality is that many same-sex partners are, because they have not LEGAL status, losing everything to their partners family. They lose their savings, their belongings, sometimes bank accounts and cars, but mostly they lose memories, those things and belongings that represent the love between two people.
The reality is all we are looking for, is legal recognition and responsibility for each other.
Eric
First off, let me extend my condolences on the loss of your spouse. I agree that you should have all the rights as a married couple. I know that if I was gay I would be VERY VERY upset if I could not be with my partner or help make decisions in my partner's health care and vice versa.5807

Let me try this again:
The word "homosexual" (or "homosexuality") did not exist until late in the 19th century. If a Bible translation uses this word, the translators are making a ridiculous error.
While the words existed for authors (like Paul, for instance) to approximate same-sex contact, he only did so in the context of pagan temple rituals, exploitation (coercion or rape), under age, or anything non-consensual and/or not between adults.
The Bible does not make any pronouncements against consensual, same-sex adult relationships. It simply doesn't.
Something tells me you don't have the brainpower to understand this, but have a nice day anyway.
How did you manage to connect "one who castrates himself" with "one who puts his penis in other men's buttocks"?

From a biblical standpoint, it seems pretty clear to me that homosexuality is wrong--no matter how people try to spin it.

On the other hand, it does imply that men have no right to question the mind of God. If men and/or women are born gay, who are we to judge? On the other hand, if they choose it...then again, who are we to judge? Only God can do that.

If God gave man free will, do you think he's going to appreciate you conservatives taking it away?

Oh if only a simple visit to the attorney did what a marriage license does. The cost difference is on average about $5000 more for same-sex couples than it is to get a marriage license.
Marriage is a civil contract, governed by the State. No law in the USA requires a Church service of any kind to be legally married.
My late partners family, had his will voided in Court. It cost me tens of thousands of dollars, lost property and memories.
Since Massachusetts started allowing Gay marriage though - nothing has happened to you, or to anyone. At least nothing negative.
I understand your feelings, though I disagree with you. Still, if nothing happened to any heterosexuals since Massachusetts, why prevent same-sex marriage anywhere?
Eric
It is truly a shame what your spouses family did to you!!! If my parent or child were gay I would support their choices and welcome their partner into my home and family. I would respect their choice. It is a shame that the family doesn't realize by doing what they did to you that they lost the right to your spouse's most cherished possession and that is you.

And finally:

In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centering on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe, where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America where it became an enterprise.--Richard Halverson

I am curious as to how many "species" homosexuality exists, and then compare other social tendancies in these species as they would relate to human tendancies.
You could be born gay. The difference is how you act on it.
If you ignore God in this issue, then we evolved from apes. Evolution depended on reproduction, which isn't possible with a homosexual lifestyle without scientific/medical intervention. I don't think apes had that ability. I am sure apes have homosexual tendancies, but I am sure it was those same apes that we humans DIDN'T evolve from.
You can love a person of the same gender without it being sexual. I love my best friend, someone I have known for 30 years. I believe God allows for that. But never have I thought about sleeping with him. Do I believe God provides for homosexual activities? No. I believe this is the will of the flesh, of man, and has absolutely nothing to do with a spiritual love God intended for us.
I know many people who are homosexual. Some are friends of mine, some are friends of my kids. One of my daughter's best friend is a gay male. Another daughter has a good friend who is a gay female. This is there life, and it is not for me to judge. But, at the same time, do I think homosexuality is wrong?
Yes.
If that is your belief, then you should make sure that YOU don't practice homosexuality. Perhaps there are things that you do that other people, according to their interpretation of the Bible think are wrong. Judge not lest you should be judged
