    Is homosexuality unnatural?

    Is being gay, lesbian, or bisexual against the laws of nature?

    I dont think so and it a personal choice and there is really nothing anyone can do or stop it,its been around for years but it was hidden but now the world has changed and everyone has rights to fair life and freedom of choice.

    I can't believe I am dignifying this with a response.

    No. They found the gay gene, so being gay is not a choice- which makes it completely natural. This could, in fact, be nature's way of controlling the population. Its just two people in love- how is that unnatural?

    As I am a heterosexual I'm probably not qualified to say what is "natural" for a gay or lesbian person. I can only say I have never had an attraction or desire to be intimate with another man. Having said that I don't believe I woke up one day and (chose) to be straight. It was "natural" for me to be attracted to women at an early age. I have heard some gay and lesbian people say they "knew" they were attracted to their same sex at an early age as well. Unless you could get inside another person's brain it would be impossible to know if being gay/lesbian was a choice or if it was (their) natural instinct.
    As far as the bible is concerned the vast majority of us are hypocrites. We cherry pick the verses that serve us. It also says, "Thy shall not commit fornication, Thy shall not commit adultery, Thy shall not lie, and Thy shall not steal...etc" Most of us have broken one or several of the commandments. Therefore to hold up the "good book" to justify why we should frown on one group of people for not following it and yet not hold ourselves accountable for not following it as well smacks of hypocrisy in my opinion.

      I read this question and was stumped on how to put what I think into words.  You gave the best answer to this question ever.  I agree with you 100%

    People argue and fight over this issue all the time, quoting Bible scripture, protesting all over the place, even physically attacking those who are homosexual.

    I am a Christian.  However, I REFUSE to judge people who are gay, lesbian or bisexual.

    I have friends who are gay. My sister's best friend is gay. I have a cousin whose best friend is gay.   When I was employed I had co-workers who were both gay and lesbian.  When I was in Toastmasters, we had lesbian and bisexual members... all the above-mentioned are some of the nicest people I have ever met.

    That being said, I believe I have NO right to say that homosexuality is unnatural.  I have not walked in their shoes.  I also believe one of the worst things I can do is to take a Bible verse out of context and wave it in people's faces against homosexuality. 

    I sincerely believe that God loves His creation, including people who are gay, lesbian and bisexual. 

    Judgment is up to God, not me, not society. 

    Blessings, Sparklea

      Good answer, good answer. I might have to make this one a hub as well to get my point across, haha. I wasn't using the word unnatural as some kind of spiteful way of saying "gross" or "wrong" I was using it literally, in the scientific sense.

    Being gay is as natural as the eyes you are born with: It's something beautiful and something worth loving the person about. I also agree that it is a possible natural way of controlling the population smile I also follow the Sikh belief: "Love is between the souls"

    We were created  so a male and female would have sex -procreate and have children & a family , A mother & father . Our bodies were made so a male and female fit naturally . 2 men or 2 woman together  is not natural  or the way God intended for people to use their bodies & he finds it disgusting  .
    Sadly so many are accepting it as normal /

      Genesis states that God made Adam in his own image, then he made Eve to keep Adam company.  They were kicked out of Eden because they had sex. Who are you to say God finds it disgusting? What Commandment backs what you claim?  I'll tell you...NONE!!

      Adam & Eve were kicked out because of eating something they were told not to . They were supposed to have sex & have a family , thats why they were made like they were to have sex .Leviticus 2o ,13 says it is a destable thing - 2 men together

      I know you all did a ton of research to come up with your opinion. But I think you missed a chapter. Did you know you have the same odds of being born with red hair as you do of being born with ambigous gender? Read: where does God want me to pee

    I have a few gay friends, and I've had a few of those gay friends HIT ON ME, So, I have some issues with the concept of a "gay gene".

    I can only say from what I've seen my gay friends go through that it's hard being gay, that the purpose of relationships is to enrich each others' lives and society and culture as a whole. I haven't seen that from gay relationships, or gay culture. (Lived in the Bay Area for a few years....)

    And before folk start throwing their thought bricks at me...  I don't understand why a group of behaviours that are so risky (can't be mentioned here, it's a family show)
    is being forced upon the consciousness of our culture.

    Furthermore, I find the levels of intolerance toward heteros, like myself that don't endorse or agree with that lifestyle hard to understand.

    I can't believe...why are you asking this? That's just like asking if being straight is natural. I'm bi, and know many others who are gay, bi, and lesbians...but I also know others who are straight. Just because it's something that's not socially accepted, doesn't mean it isn't natural. Homosexuality has been around for much longer than anyone can remember, and it's even mentioned in the Bible. It's completely natural.

    So...my answer to your question is a firm "no".

    I don't think it is unnatural. It is a part of somebody that awoke once it was given awareness, no matter if it happened in a positive or negative aspect.

    I see we have a 4-yr-old question making the rounds again.  Since I obviously did not answer it back then, I will now.
    This question is worded a bit differently than we most often see it asked.  So many people ask if Homosexuality is "right." "acceptable,"  against God or the Bible, and even if it is a blight on Society.
    For many years I have pretty much held my personal opinion in terms of homosexuality, as being just another way in the many that we humans are different than one another. My attitude is fairly relaxed, as well as respectful.   
    Frankly I believe that any person's sexual orientation and/or their sex life in general is simply not an issue for public announcement nor display. I would certainly tell someone that very thing, should they be bold & rude enough to ask me about mine!
    An "antonym" for the word, natural, is "artificial."  Basically that would make my answer to your question, an emphatic,  "NO."
    Good question.  Paula
