1. Homosexuality is a Sin from religious point of view (It is immaterial to which religion you follow, they all condemn homosexuality, it is strange unanimity between different religions).

2. Homosexuality is abhorrent to all human civilizations, irrespective of the date and age. There is no society in which they were treated as "equals and normals". We can say that Homosexuality is a "sin" from social point of view.

3. Homosexuality is extremely risky from medical point of view. They are High Risk people to contract such disease as AIDS and other disease. So it is a "Sin" from medical point of view.

4. Homosexuality is extremely counter productive for survival of human race. If it is allowed to spread unchecked, the very survival of humans on earth shall be threatened. Who will decide what should be the percentage of Homos in any society? So it is a "sin" from Human race Survival point of view.

What else ground is left not to call is a sin?

Provided Satan and Devil Worshipers will not mind if there be Homos in their midst and Satan and Devil would welcome such people as "their own"!!

So Homosexuality is "not a Sin" from Satanic and Devilish point of view!!

I hope that my message is loud and clear to both parties, Normal as well as Homos.

Answer: FALSE. The view that homosexuality and/or homosexual behavior is a "sin" is not a universal teaching among all religions (and never has been) and not universally agreed to by believers.

Answer: FALSE. Whoever is to blame for your education in history ought to be sued for malpractice, because they have left you sadly misinformed. Acceptance of homosexuals and/or homosexual acts has ebbed and flowed throughout history in pretty much every society that has ever existed, mainly because there have always been homosexuals in pretty much every society that has ever existed. Our role in human history is pretty much at the mercy of the heterosexual super-majority that has also always existed in every society that has ever existed. Sometimes you're cool with it, sometimes you get seriously freaked out for incredibly asinine reasons, usually blaming God, Allah or insert name of higher power here.

Answer: FALSE. Your ignorance isn't limited is it? You seem to know very little about a whole lot of subjects. I don't know whether to be impressed by you or sad for you. The medical profession ceased viewing "homosexuality" as a "sin" decades ago. They stopped confusing people who are homosexual with acts that are homosexual, you should give it a try. AIDS and other sexually transmissible diseases and conditions don't care one whit about sexual orientation or the sex of their current and potential hosts. They do not spontaneously occur simply because someone is engaging in a sexual act with someone of their same sex.

Whether you believe the human species are here as a result of divine intervention or a more Darwinian model, the reality you have to deal with, is that as far as we know, there have always likely been folk who are at least predominately, if not exclusively same sex attracted (homosexual) in every part of the world, throughout all of recorded history and that folk, not necessarily homosexual, have been engaging in same sex sexual acts ever since folk started drawing dirty pictures. Homosexuals are here for a reason, whether divine or natural. There has actually been a great deal of research done in the area of homosexuality and evolution, too bad you are completely unaware of it.

Hon, if you want to pray that whatever version of God or Gods you want to believe in agrees with your choice to believe that who we are and what you fantasize us doing sexually is a "sin", you go right ahead. Any presumption that your version of God or Gods actually agrees with that prayer is yours and yours alone.

So, what you are saying is that I will be able to "practice my homosexuality" in Heaven, but only if I repent for it here on Earth? You did say a reason that I should repent is that I won't get to "practice" it in Hell, that MUST mean I get to "practice" in Heaven. Cool with me.

This is nonsense; there is no science showing homosexuality is something one is born with. And yes, people do have control over whether they choose to express their sexuality in normal heterosexuality or a deviant way.
You didn't respond to what I posted. Its obvious everyone has their own opinions. The thread asks if its a sin; that's no a matter of opinion; but a matter of what the religions say about it. The religions say its a sin. But of course you can post whatever opinion you wish. It just doesn't really answer the thread's question honestly.
And no, its stupid to think all life thousands of years ago had to be ignorant. Have you never heard of King Minos, Crete? His kingdom was very modern with running water, hot and cold, etc. That was about the same as Biblical timing, dude. I get tired of people who don't study for themselves; but just regurgitate the status quo. I know its heady and prideful, makes one feel on top to think all those in the past were ignorant cave men, etc. But I'm more of a truth seeker.
King Minos of Crete was, of course, from Greek mythology. But yes some ancient cultures did have a form of running water, but it is highly unlikely those in the areas of which the writers of the Bible lived, had running water (speaking of the Jews, not the Greeks). Besides most of what modern man knows today is more than 50%(likely a lot higher, but I am being careful not to exaggerate) of all the knowledge that man has had through history, which has only been discovered in the past century or less.

One would have to know which religion one is referring to in order to determine whether something is a sin based on religion. Religions are all based on man's inventions of years ago, for whatever reason, often to try to explain what was totally a mystery to them, sometimes just to control others, sometimes honestly believing in deities, which seems to still be the case with a large number of the world's inhabitants, even though no deity has ever been proved to exist by any man, and that proof tested and accepted as truth.

Those who follow various religions today still have their deities, based only on 'belief that they exist' not knowledge that they exist.

I am wondering where you are getting your information about homosexuality, but the accepted understanding of homosexuality in the medical and scientific community today is that it is something that a person is born with.

There are exceptional cases, of course, that heterosexuals might engage in homosexual activities, but they are not inherently homosexuals, but have adopted that lifestyle for various reasons, even something very traumatic in their life. There are some people who are 100% heterosexual, but never have homosexual behavior, but do have what we would consider deviant sexual behavior, such as pedophiles, exhibitionists, rapists, etc.

People going on about the Bible really need to remember a few things. One being that in those days people didn't know about sperm and egg cells, they thought everything required for a potential human baby was in the semen. So gay sex would 'waste' the semen because in their eyes that was a potential baby not being given a chance because it wasn't ejaculated into a woman. That's why the Bible also said not to masterbate, saying its a sin to spill your seed upon the ground.
So instead of assuming God has something against two people sharing their love for each other who happen to be of the same sex, think about the evidence you are using. If every ejaculate was a potential life, maybe it would be sinful to have any sex that wasn't penis to vagina but don't let an ancient scientific misconception lead you to be hostile or unaccepting of something that really shouldn't be a big deal.
Some people are gay, so what?
Very true. If they had realized that every time a man ejaculated into a woman, even if he got her pregnant, he was also killing billions of sperms cells that potentially could have been used the fertilize the egg, but are wasted, because only one sperm cell is required to fertilize an egg. Most of us men had killed trillions of potential lives using that kind of mentality.

Then there is the sin of the women, who have ovulated, usually every 28 days or so, and the majority of those eggs died too, as many were not even given the opportunity to be fertilized because the woman didn't rush out to find some man to fertilize them every month, or they did, but the pregnancy didn't happen.

I guess I am not with it, but your message is not clear to me, especially as it contained some incorrect, and wrong ideas.

It is irrelevant that homosexuality has been considered wrong, or discriminated against, by humans in general, which is likely the case, however humans also demonized lepers, mentally challenged, slaves, and many other things which are considered quite normal nowadays, or even are not accepted nowadays, such as slaves.

It is irrelevant what religions have believed and preached about homosexuality, because their beliefs have nothing to do with the reality of what being homosexual really means, nor are they anything but reflecting the "morals" of the people who wrote the laws of those religions when they were developed by humans.

Yes, some diseases are spread more easily through some sexual activities of gay people, but they are also spread by sexual activities of heterosexual people too, and all contagious diseases are spread by contact with other living creatures, often other humans, who have those diseases, or carry the pathogens that cause those diseases, so the frequency of contact with other humans will affect how often people or how many people acquire those diseases.

AIDS is a disease that was only identified and made public in the 1980s and at that time it was claimed to be associated with homosexual men, because it was appearing more frequently in that population, and so it became a tool used again homosexuality.

We now know that AIDS has killed a large number of young adults in some countries in Africa who are not gay, but are married and have children, because the disease has spread rampantly by heterosexual sex, and in many cases heterosexual sex with many people. When one person has the pathogen, then all people who contact that person sexually, or who contact others who have contacted that person sexually will have a chance of getting that disease too.

Because most of the western societies, and even China, now do not have a birth rate high enough (China may still have but their one child policy is counter to that) to even maintain the current population numbers there is a lot of heterosexual acts going on today that are counterproductive to human survival too. Abortion is another of those. Humans have found that sex has a value simply for the wonderful (hopefully, in most cases) experience it is, and actually, in heterosexual relationships even take measures so that the woman doesn't become pregnant, because they want the act without the pregnancy.

Homosexuals are not going to depopulate the world, regardless of how we treat them, and there will always be a percentage of homosexuals in society, assuming we don't go to killing them off as some societies have done. So demonizing and/or giving them lesser rights as humans beings serves no purpose other than bigotry.

Sweetie, it really isn't my fault that your own words can be held against you, now is it? You only have yourself to blame for the conundrum you created. FYI, there can be a whole lot wrong with getting naked with another man, it depends on why you are doing it, but just because there will be sex involved once you are, isn't necessarily one of them.Keep praying that God hates the homosexual as much as you do, I'm sure I read that He has a sense of humor.
