Homosexual behavior is always discussed in the Bible as a serious sin.The Bible contains 9 specific references to homosexuality: 4 in the Old Testament (Genesis 19:1-25; Judges 19:22-30; Leviticus 18:22; and Leviticus 20:13) and 5 in the New Testament (Romans 1:24-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; 2 Peter 2:6-10; and Jude 7). The passage in Romans, in particular is so clear that it seems to have been written by Paul knowing that people would challenge the idea that homosexual behavior is wrong. In addition, there are numerous other passages that touch on this topic indirectly through comments on the biblical view of marriage and family, promiscuity, and sexual purity. Included in these references are Genesis 2:18-25; Proverbs 18:22; Mark 7:21, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5; Romans 6:13, 13:13; 1 Corinthians 6:13, 18-19; Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 3:5; God is very clear in stating his opinion of homosexuality.

yes it does.it is among the many,many,many things that the bible says are wrong,but you know we tend to take some and leave some.it is sad when people use the bible as a reason to hate or discriminate.
Anon 8:32 Your statement makes no sense. Why should we tolerate something that is an abomination to God? Just because someone lives by the Bible, doesn't make them a hater. If something is wrong, it's wrong. To me it's more sad when people see in the Bible that certain things are a sin and they ignore it, excuse it and water it down, then criticise Christians because they take the Bible seriously and try to live a righteous life, according to what it says.
