No.


Well, way to be blunt. I just think that if God (if he even exists) is supposed to be so great then he should accept everyones differences.


I think what courtney means by that ''No'' is that forgiving someone for sinning is completely different for accepting.

To forgive someone for a sin it means that person realises what they have done is wrong and the big boss man upstairs forgives him. For god to accept homosexuality is asking him to accept sin and as much as the next xentence makes me sound like a bible basher i'm going to say it anyway

Only the devil accepts sin.


I'm just saying my priest always used to tell me “God is always understanding.” Well if that is true than he should be understanding towards the alternative lifestyle.

And for all we know God might think homosexuality is okay, the bible was passed down orally for years before ever being written and recorded. We all treat the bible like it is God’s exact words. We don’t know what changed, some one may have added the ‘between and man and a women’ bit because homosexual marriages didn’t happen back then so they may have added it to make it sound more official. We don’t know. I say if God isn’t willing to accept homosexuality then I’m not ready to accept God.

Homosexuality is a natural occurrence and should NOT be treated like a sin, a disease, or bad personal choice. It’s part of the ‘grand design,’ if you will, of humankind.

I'm not arguing on God's behalf cause he does things to piss me off from time to time, But it's not the person he hates, it's the act. So looking at it from that angle he is understanding to the person he just wishes they didn't do some things.

Nobody but fundementalist take the bible at word value, else they would be condradicting themselves every chapted. But on a topic like this you can't misunderstand the message that the act of two men or two women or man and animal is not only frowned on but is considered a big ass sin. I don't know how you think the bible was created but it wasn't a stone slab passed around the kitchen table with people going ''oh that sounds good put that in john'' They are stories made with the purpose for people to live their lives in a better way.

Homosexuality is not a natural occurance, yes it effects all aspects of the animal kingdom but it's a flaw. To be natural means to continue growth so that nature can continue, Homosexuals do not procreate so it is not what nature intended. How can it be part of the Grand Design what aspect of homosexuality helps human kind?

I think it is a natural occurance and shouldn't be considered a flaw. Sure they can't procreate but we can do that in labs no so it doesn't really matter. And I realise people didn't add whatever they felt like to the bible but someone could've put something in to make more specific and that might not be what was originally intended.

... but creating a test tube baby is not nature its science, so it's not natural. Yes it does matter. the aspect of perfect babies being brought up by two people of the same sex will have a major effect on society in general you can't just shoo shoo it as another way of populating the planet and the continuence of life. Even if your not religious you can see the flaw in that design.

I think it's pretty specific on this matter Very Happy

Well, maybe. I think that if u are religious and homosexual you wouldn't make sex with loved ( yeah loved) pearson... Even if u do, God will forgive u at all, becouse it wasn't your fault in a part...

I'm sorry, but sex is a big part of a relationship, whether you can make babies or not. Sex is one of the factors that leads to love in many relationships, hetero or homosexual.

Well you do know it's not officially homosexuality without sex? And same sex marriage isn't even legal in most countries.

Yeah, it was blunt, nothing else was needed. "Accepting" and "forgiving" are not the same thing.

If someone kicks me because they're mad, I'd forgive them if they said sorry. But that doesn't mean I would accept that action of kicking as acceptable behavior.

God doesn't have an opinion. Even if there was proof of a God we couldn't hear his opinions, he'd be a dude up in the sky as we all know him.
