What makes homosexuality immoral? For those who are now scratching their heads wondering why I am asking that question, it really is a valid question, and one that should be asked of every Catholic bishop, Mormon elder, Baptist minister and anti-gay Politico out there.

What a futile attempt to give the Bible contextual relavence when in fact it should be disregarded without a second thought.

I know this has real significance to many thousands of gays and its offered in a spirit if helpfulness but you can't fix stupid.

If you're not smart enough to realize the whole book it trash from start to finish them you can keep living your life in misery. Too sad.

Um...you did read it all the way through, right?

I think I said that it may have been relevant at one time...but it certainly isn't today.

"Morality" is not defined strictly by religion or the Bible. Morality is also defined by societal standards, conventions and expectations, as well as by one's individual conscience.
The promiscuity of homosexuality offends just about any definition of morality.

No, it "offends' you personally. And you personally "offend" me.
you're pathetic. Your religious beliefs 'offend' me.
You're family (not that anyone would claim that) "offends" me.
Your asininity "offends" me.

As I originally stated, morality is not defined strictly by religion or the Bible.

LOL...homosexuals are no more or less promiscuous than heterosexuals.

So, you are against everyone having sex, right?

There is one practical reason for non-promiscuity among heteros ... women don't want to be pregnant all the time.

Yeh, agree with the 1st part of what u said.
Like another poster just said promiscuity is not confined to homosexuals. OK, some are but then some of any group are. Promiscuity stems from lust which is the offense to morality not the homosexuality.
Morality is also (as well as not just being defined by) not dependent on religion or the Bible. Atheists/agnostics have their own sense of immorality else they'd be the only immoral 1s, which they aren't.

Promiscuity is not the same thing as homosexuality. There are plenty of non-promiscuous homosexuals, and lots of promiscuous heterosexuals.

If we're to accept the immoral label as valid when applied to any group of people the reasoning has to be compelling and logical.

No it doesn't, just the "morality" of hypocrites, pretenders, and the witless. I'm sure you fit right in.

Speaking of promiscuity; did you know that there have been over 54.5 million abortions performed in the U.S. between 1973 and 2011? I wonder how many of those were caused by promiscuous gays.

I get it now, you ask rhetorical question. Brilliant technique.

Does the "promiscuity of heterosexuality" offend your notion of morality?

If no, then why the double standard?

If yes, then it's promiscuity, not sexual orientation, that offends your notion of morality.

Oh Bridgette! Why don't you look up the definition of immoral before asking anybody. It applies to many many persons, places, and things in the world. Are you really that dumb?

Many heterosexuals understand that there are many heterosexuals that are immoral and screwed up. You need the messed up ones to hide your own immorals. DUH???
