if you put it in context with sin, then yes its written as a sin.
if you put in context with society, then its just a sexual act.
the problem being, "where do you put it."
pardon the pun...

If you believe God created all, then you have to believe God created homosexuality as it does occur in nature.

"Homosexual (as well as bisexual) behavior is widespread in the animal kingdom.[3] Animal sexual behavior takes many different forms, even within the same species and the motivations for and implications of their behaviors have yet to be fully understood. A 1999 review by researcher Bruce Bagemihl shows that homosexual behavior, not necessarily sex, has been observed in close to 1500 species, ranging from primates to gut worms, and is well documented for 500 of them.[4][5]"

So, if God created all, and God created homosexuality, why is it wrong? Once again, the Bible contradicts itself.

Hi Travis,
What was the purpose of this poll? The reason I ask is because I read your profile, and I can see that you are a brother.
So, you already knew the answer to the question you posed before you posted it.
Was this to illustrate the fact that this nation is overwhelmed with the idea that homosexuality is O.K.?
If so, I understand your grief. About two weeks ago, I created a similar poll - "Is Homosexuality Immoral?" The results were staggering. According to the random sample, people are about 50/50 on this issue.
It is not a random sample if you stacked it with your own anti-gay agenda. How many times did you click on the "Homosexuality is a Sin/Immoral" tab over and over again to build a false count?

You Bible Thumpers are so Opaque.

I should run a poll that asks the question: What percentage of Born-Agains are recovering felons?...Home Schooled?...from the land of Dixie?
And I wouldn't trust the result either because those who bother to waste their time with the un-enlightened concerns of the aforementioned do not represent a fair polling - a cross cultural random sampling.

Well, I did post, but it seems to be missing now. I thought it was a fair question, don't know why someone would flag it.

So, here is the question again:

If God created all, then God created homosexuality. Homosexuality occurs in naturally all around us.

From Wiki, but there are tons of material on the subject:

"Homosexual behavior is widespread in the animal kingdom.[3] Animal sexual behavior takes many different forms, even within the same species and the motivations for and implications of their behaviors have yet to be fully understood. A 1999 review by researcher Bruce Bagemihl shows that homosexual behavior, not necessarily sex, has been observed in close to 1500 species, ranging from primates to gut worms, and is well documented for 500 of them.[4][5]"

So, isn't the Bible contradicting itself if God is the creator of all that is because God created homosexuality?

And, if my other posts magically come back, sorry for the double posting.

i agree with all so far. my questions to you are: "does your church welcome homosexuals to attend?" or "do they frown upon them and make it known they're not welcome?"
We welcome everyone, but a homosexual walks in a sinner and walks out a sinner.

Oh, please. You bible-thumpers need to stay out of adults bedrooms. It's not your business, it's not god's business, it's not George W. Bush's business, it's not anyones business. The fact that you people are pathetic enough to think that you should have a say about what two CONCENTING ADULTS do in their bedroom is just rediculious. Homosexuality isn't evil, it isn't sick or disgusting or immoral, it is just different. They are not hurting anyone, and they are not forcing anything on anyone.
They are two concenting adults, and should be allowed to do what all other concenting adults are allowed to do. It's not even close to pedophilia, necrophilia, rape or beastiality, to those of you who are twisted or disturbed enough to think that they are at all related. You know why? Because those acts are about hurting, non-concent, and control. Homosexuality is exactly like heterosexuality, just instead of being attracted to the opposite sex, they are attracted to the same sex. Big f*ckin deal! They are two ADULT HUMANS doing what all other adult humans do. It is not a threat to your family, your marriage, or your life. It is just a different way of living.
Stay out of my bedroom, my friends bedroom, and anyone's bedroom who doesn't welcome you there. I don't need you telling me what is 'moral' and what isn't. I don't need you telling me what is 'natural' and what isn't. Worry about your own sex life, not mine.
All that being said, I am a heterosexual.
So it is your business to tell others what is their 'business'?

Oh my stars, of course all are invited except those who come to ridicule-SF incident. One of the major charities for HIV/AIDS is a religious group. How they got the disease is irrelevant; they are suffering and the church reaches out to them

I agree. People with this disease need our compassion. And AIDS is not a disease only gay people get. That's dated thinking, in my book.

You take all this too seriously! Online polls prove nothing and mean nothing. Geeze, can't someone disagree with you. You do not need to have a melt-down and start claiming all must be idiots who do not agree with you. That is a poor argument

Well, yeah, when it's my busniess they are trying to involve themselves in. And when the anti-gay crowd starts spewing their rediculious claims that homosexuality is immoral or evil, it is my business because they are insulting friends of mine. I do not tolerate that kind of total ignorance. That and I have zero tolerance for blind bigotry against homosexuality, just as I have zero tolerance for blind bigotry against Muslims, Jews, Mexicans, Blacks, etc...

And to respond to what you said to another person, yes, I can and do call people who disagree with me on this particular subject an idiot. Why? Because anyone that thinks they have the right to tell people that it is evil for them to be attracted to other adult humans are f*ckin idiotic. The fact that so many of them feel superior to homosexuals because the bible calls it an abomination reinforces my belief that those self-rightous homophobes are nothing but ignorant morons.

Excuse me!!!
I know many gay men. And so what if god didn't create life to be done like that, they're happy and that's what matters. My uncle is gay, I adore him. And one else wanna tell me how wrong it is, because I won't care. As long as he's happy, I'm great. Stuff you if you don't agree! And whoever made this, what's your problem? Are you a homophobe? Are you here to bash homosexual people, are you here to state how wrong you think it is?
None of you can make me change my thoughts, god made us to be happy. And they're happy that way. And tell me, all the guys, does it not turn you on when you see chicks kissing other chicks?
If so:
Why stop them? They love each other.
If not:
What's your prob? It's two chicks! C'mon, ya know you wanna say yes.

Thanks~~~~ Morgan
