Jesus never mentioned it, so you do have to wonder how important it was to him (or John, his most beloved).<quoted text>God did not put it in the ten commandments. Jesus never said one word about it. Even John of Patmos, who thought everyone on earth but him was probably bound for hell never mentioned in when he wrote of all those who would go to hell.
But I do think many passages in the Hebrew Bible do clearly condemn homosexuality. I've never seen anyone explain those passages away with any really credible rationale. Now, the Hebrew Bible also supports slavery, and treats women as subjugated property of men too, in addition to being patently racist, so I don't have much respect for it as a valid moral guide anyway. But I do think it's funny when Christians pick and choose what parts of the OT they think still apply and what parts they find too inconvenient, such as the commandment to observe the Sabbath, for example. Not to mention all those pesky dietary laws! So we will consider those done, but those passages about homosexuality? Still valid!
First of all, it's very telling that it's usually men who have the problem, and their problem is with men. They somehow have no problem with gay women at all, LOL! Yeah, it's a real mystery, right? It's also telling that those homophobes don't seem to know anything about gay people, or know any very well. People who have gay friends realize there is nothing scary about it. But then again, bigotry comes from ignorance.It seems that it is a fear of many Christian men that they will become a homosexual if by chance they see a same-sex couple holding hands and don't run screaming in denial and condemnation. That tells me only one thing, they have desire for a same-sex relationship. There is nothing else that would account for such obsession with the subject.
