If Jesus died for your sins, and all sins have been forgiven, then why is homosexuality, or "acting on" same-sex feelings one that can't seem to be forgiven?
Time and time again in this section, examples of Old Testament laws have been presented and asked why those aren't followed any more, and the answer is always that Jesus came and sacrificed himself so that we don't need to follow those rules any more. All our sins are forgiven, the old laws no longer apply. That's why we can wear mixed fabric clothing, jewelry, overeat, etc.
Why, if those "sins" are forgiven to the extent that they don't need to be considered sinful anymore, why is it that some Christians still cling to this need to deny the same rights to same-sex couples and teach their children to believe that loving same-sex relationships are an "abomination"?
If it's about procreation, then shouldn't all couples who can't or won't conceive their own children be prevented from having relationships?
If it's because homosexuality is mentioned in the New Testament, well, so are many other "abominations" that aren't part of this same level of scrutiny.
What is it about homosexuality that has so many people working in overdrive to prevent mention of it in public schools, prevent same-sex couples from obtaining the same marriage rights as heterosexual couples, prevent same-sex couples from adopting, etc.?
I know. . . this question comes up many times over the course of a year, but I haven't found a satisfactory answer that really explains the depth of this discrimination. Who has one?Answer Question

"Do not think that I [Jesus] have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth dipsapear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke or a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. (Matthew 5:17-18)"
I guess they ignore what Jesus himself said...
