  • My church see's it as a sin if you ACT upon those feelings. To have the feelings isn't the sin. We believe it's a struggle to overcome. There are many gay/lesbian people in our church who never marry or have kids, but are active members of our church.

  • Is there any religion (other than pagan/wiccanism) that DOESN'T discriminate against gays...and atheists....and witches....and so on? I haven't found a fundamentalist group that doesn' least not yet.

  • Many christian sects are split about it. It can be a great division amongst the church... However, most do see it as a sin.

  • I'm a JW and I try to follow the bible as best as I can and no, I dont think acting on homosexuality is right in the eyes of God. I have a niece and a cousin that are gay and lesbian and I love them dearly and would never want any harm to come to them. I would never hold or sign any petitions against gays/lesbians.
