I personally am not huge on religion. So to call it a sin would be implying that I believe in God. To be honest (and I know I will be bashed for this), I believe homosexuality is wrong. But just because I believe so, does that mean it should not be allowed? Of course not. I don't like Lebron James either and he sure as hell couldn't give two shits. My one annoyance with this topic is that people say "homophobes" are closed minded people and attack every aspect of what their opinion is and its the EXACT same thing that homosexuals are fighting for (freedom rights). So does anybody else smell the hypocrisy?

On what, if not religion, do you base your assertion that "homosexuality is wrong?"

since you think homosexuality should not be allowed, I do believe that removes you from the Homophobe category. My definition of a homophobe is one that wants to deny the rights and privileges that American heterosexuals enjoy. People who want to discriminate against homosexuals are generally considered homophobes

I agree with you that "sin" is a purely religious construct and that, as such, the title of this thread presumes a universal adherence to religion. What so many people have trouble understanding is that there is no shortage of people for whom the word "sin" is meaningless. Technically, I suppose nobody but those who believe in "sin" should have ever posted here and further that everyone who does believe in "sin" and posts here should have answered with a resounding "YES!" But those of us who do not believe in "sin", who are unable to believe as the believers in the Abrahamic "God" do just couldn't resist throwing down and questioning that is isn't supposed to be questioned.

I think you may have misread "But just because I believe so, does that mean it should not be allowed?" He was not saying homosexuality should not be allowed, at least I didn't read it that way.

Gloop!

You practically live here. Without this site to rant at you have nobody in the world to talk to. Nobody you aren't afraid to talk to in person at least. That's why you stalk Adam. That's why you can't quit him, because he is the only one you think cares what you say.

Only he doesn't. You come in vain.

@Gay agenda
Romans 1.26-27
For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversion.
I'm sure there must be a point to your quoting of the version of the Bible you seem to like best, but what that point might be is a mystery to me.

Please provide a credible citation to support your assertion that "asinine homosexual promiscuity" "brought on the AIDS epidemic not to mention countless other STD's that innocent people bear the brunt of."
Of course it supports my claim. I live a moral life. I pay for other people's immorality. I only noted the cost of HIV/AIDS that innocent people bear.

You are pretending to be ignorant of the gay part in that. I suspect you are not. But to satisfy your denial of gay promiscuity, here is another article that addresses not just the US, but a pattern that currently exists around the world;

I think the better question is, what causes homosexuality?

That has not been clearly answered yet, which presents a quandary for scientists. They are stuck with the only evidence of it being a evolutionary defect of mating behavior. Why would a butch lesbian (almost a man), dress and act like a man to attract another lesbian (who almost wants a man, but not quite)? It is a fruitless exercise of mating behavior.

It appears that the most likely explanation for homosexuality will quickly come from epi-genetics (an epi-marker mistake). In essence, a sexual defect.

All of this fits perfectly into the sense of every culture in history that recognizes homosexuality as a defect of nature. It fits into the violation of design that is inherent in gay sex. A pointless, harmful duplication of sexual organs.

The moral aspect come in two forms;

-Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning. It violates the most basic morality of 'do no harm'.

-The demand for everyone to accept homosexuality as normal sexual behavior.

Having said all this, none of this excuses discarding homosexuals as worthless or less than human. I think it is an extremely difficult burden to bear. But as with any difficulty, the only good prescription is an honest and full diagnosis.

Your deliberate inability to figure out why someone would want to live out their lives openly, honestly and hopefully happily, as the homosexual that the good Lord made them, should be nobody's problem but your own. Whatever the reason we are here, we are here and deserve ALL the rights of our fellow man, whether you agree or not.

I deny no one any such openness. In fact my post expressly encourages that honesty.

Nor do I deny anyone legitimate rights.

As to God's creation, your denial avoids the fall and the clear evidence of such, including you and me.

Sweetie, you view us as inferior models of the species, but if you are meant as our proof of the natural superiority of the heterosexual....

The right to marry is one of those legitimate rights dear, yet you seek to deny us that right because you are worried that heterosexuals might get confused and stop being heterosexual or something and you have issues with what you fantasize our sex lives to be.

As to our creation, you yourself blame biological and epi-genetic factors, clearly that would put our being gay in God's hands now wouldn't it?

Adolf sweetie, I'm aware of those two verses, I've heard them many times before. My question to you is, can you actually fake having a clue as to knowing why Paul said what he said?

There is nothing you just said that is based in truth and reality.

Adolf bunny, you might have had a chance if you had bothered to actually read the book. The answer to my question is, no, you can't fake having a clue. Dear, the sin that the Christians of Rome were accused of by Paul was idolatry, he said, for that sin, God gave them up to a whole laundry list of behaviors of which he, Paul, did not approve, the first being the whole same sex sex thingy. If you had bothered to read AFTER those verses, you'd find no wrath of God for their supposedly sinful actions, because those actions were God's doing, moron.

Considering what you imagine to be truth and reality, I'm not surprised by your pronouncements from up on high, but what you think to be truth and reality isn't normally confused with either truth or reality by most folk in their right mind.

Almighty,eternal God is a H-O-L-Y God. Do you understand that??? God does not "create" people "gay". If you are looking for someone to blame, don't blame God. You are just wasting your time and energy. God wants to deliver you, free you from the evil perverted spirit known as homosexuality.
Adolf, bunny, God wants me to tell you, He isn't real sure who you are talking to or speaking for, but He does know, it isn't Him.
