"First of all, there is no proof that homosexuals are born in any particular way. But even if they are, the Bible CLEARLY states that it is a sin, just like gluttony, gossip, anger, etc." -quote taken from said earlier thread.
What proof is needed to determine how homosexuals are born? If no proof is needed to determine a heterosexual is a heterosexual upon birth, and their sexual preferences are never questioned or debated, why should it be any different for homosexuals? how can people be so arrogant to assume heterosexuals are "superior" and DEFINITELY born that way but homosexuals CHOSE their sexuality? did you choose to be straight, or was it something you've known for as far back as you can remember? my guess is the latter.
Second, where in the Bible is this crystal clear statement about homosexuality being a sin? You mean this extremely unclear scripture of Leviticus: "And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." This is suppose to be the clear message for us hetero's regarding the condemnation of homo's. However, we all know it's completely unacceptable to perceive this in any other way than how it was literally written. This would mean killing is okay and forgivable, which is also "clearly stated" in the Bible is not okay! "Thou shalt not kill" -Exodus 20:13 Doth my eyes deceive me? A contradictory statement in the Holy Book itself? I suppose it's only contradictory if you choose to believe it word for word.
Matthew 19:16 Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. But what if my neighbor is homosexual? Shall I not love him then? Perhaps someone can put this into perspective for me.
