What Are Your Thoughts on LGBT?
The Media and LGBT
In recent years, LGBT has been on the rise. There has always been the LGBT person, just back in the 1900s, they were not open with it. Now, with the media pushing for you to accept them, the LGBT folks have exposed themselves to the world, and started pushing for rights, which they have gotten (same-sex marriage).
What Is LGBT?
Lucky you! You have been hiding under a rock most of your entire time on this wrenched planet! LGBT stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender. So, what do these words mean?
Gay is when a man feels attracted to the same sex, and Lesbian is the same, except with a woman attracted to women. Bisexual is when someone feels equally attracted to both sexes (although not mentioned here, being asexual is just the opposite: you feel attracted to neither sex); and being Transgender is when you were a woman or man, but switched your gender through science.
So...What Does This Have to Do With Me?
LGBT is gonna forever exist as long as there is a person who fits the standard. They have been pushing for rights. It doesn't have anything to do with you, unless you don't wanna be stuck in rallies on the way to work or school. But if you oppose it, read on to see what the Bible says about the subject.
Well, How Do You Think They Spread HIV?
Before I tell you what God says, think. What is one of the most dangerous, life-costing infectious diseases there is? Correct: HIV/AIDS. Who gets it most? Gay men who have had sexual intercourse with one another. Although it is more African American men that get it, that doesn't count. It's the overall statistic that does.
There was a study that kids with gay/lesbian parents are more prone to depression, on top of the fact that HIV kills people.
What Does the Bible Say?
God says for a man and a woman to be married, love each other, and be fruitful and multiply. This is why He made a man and a woman (Adam and Eve) at the start of time. He would've just created a man and a man or a woman and a woman if He wanted to. Also, people point out that there is a problem with morality in the Bible: Cain marrying his sisters. But what would you expect when there was only Adam, Eve, and their kids living on the world?
I also wanna point out something of note. On a radio talk show, an atheist called in. The Christian on the show picked up, and they have a heated convo. The Christian asked if he (the atheist) believed in God. The atheist said no. The Christian said, "Then, sir, it shouldn't matter to you if I'm immoral or not, for you do not believe in any higher power or authority." Then the Christian asks the atheist if he believes in evolution, and the atheist readily says he thinks it's a fact, and then the Christian comes back with a striking comeback: "Then, sir, it shouldn't matter to you if it's a man with a human, it could easily be a human with an animal."

- Leviticus 18:22
