How in the world can anyone say being gay is a gift from God?
Because if you believe in God and believe He is responsible for how we are created to be, our homosexuality is one of his gifts to us.
If you believe in God, you have got to acknowledge his laws that are clearly written in the Bible.
Do you acknowledge ALL the laws which are clearly written in the Bible, or are there some which you believe no longer apply? Who is to determine which of these laws still have to be followed and which should not?
Why has homosexuality all of the sudden become natural and normal, while other sexual sins are still considered immoral?
Homosexuality has always been natural and normal, sweetie, it's its treatment as some sort of "sin" which doesn't meet those standards. You are confusing being homosexual with sexual acts between two people of the same sex which may or may not involve people who are actually homosexual.
Did God change his mind and just forget to update his laws?
Did he just change his mind about beating insolent children to death, stoning adulterers or paying off fathers for raping their daughters? How about any of the laws that God clearly says people are to be upholding that none of y'all do?
Did he not really mean what he said in the first place?
Dear, there is considerable debate in the theological community as to what he meant in the first place. Your choice to believe what you do about God and homosexuality, homosexual behavior and/or homosexuals is not a universally held belief among all Christians.
Regardless of how many animals do it, that doesn't make it normal behavior.
Sweetie, it makes it normal behavior for those that do it.
We are not lower level animals.
We are different, sometimes our alleged superiority is seriously in doubt.
Animals eat their offspring, and I'm sure we don't subscribe that logic.
Sadly, humans aren't actually above such behavior.
This isn't about hate, but rather telling the truth.
Sorry, but your so-called "truth" is pretty much subjective rather than absolute. You are speaking for your choice of beliefs, not God.
What's natural about homosexual behavior in any species, if it bears nothing, other than sexual pleasure?
If all you imagine that we get from our homosexuality is sexual gratification, I can only feel sorry for how truly limited your thinking is.
The fact that its consensual doesn't justify it.
In what passes as your mind, perhaps.
Two relatives may have consensual sexual relations, does that make it right, moral and natural?
Such relationships are considered to be naturally abusive dear, for obvious reasons. In the case of incest, consent doesn't even rise to the level of an excuse.
No argument stands up against what the Bible says, and what nature proves.
That would be against what you have chosen to believe that the Bible says and your seriously limited understanding of why homosexuality occurs in nature.
If 97% of the population became homosexual...
Dear, that's why the homosexual population has always been kept pretty much at the same rate throughout all of human history. We can't do it without you, but conversely, according to God's design, you would have difficulties of surviving without us too. We provide for a continuous supply of adults, not necessarily instinctually focused on their own reproduction, but available to help ensure in the survival of the offspring of others in the extended family.
