Is Homosexuality wrong?
I know that many Christians find homosexuals to be morally corrupt. Although last a week a friend and I had a conversation on it. I say that It is their choice to do as they wish as long as its not forced on me same as anything. While he claimed that it was wrong based on science because he doesn't believe in God. He claims it goes against the very definition of life to evolve and there fore it cannot be accepted. It baffled me but in its own way held some truth based on his definition of life .... thoughts? please keep it civil I know its a emotional topic and not all people have my view.
I dont believe the evolutionary theory, I think your friend has a point though when looked at from this point of view. I usually put it this way, and have still been heavily criticized and ridiculed for it. I am against people treating others who participate in homosexuality poorly, shunning them, unfriending them (if thats a word) or any other mistreatment. Much like I would be against doing that to someone who smokes. However, I do not condone or encourage the behavior, including anything associated with it, when I know there is a higher percentage of risks and complications. Much like people who smoke.
I share a very similar view as you I believe although I do have homosexual friends. I don't find them to be bad people they just don't believe what I do and I actually enjoy our conversations.
thats right. they're not bad people. just doing a potentially harmful thing to themselves. I too enjoy conversations with people that dont believe what I do. makes life more interesting.
Homosexual tendencies have been observed in many mammals. Perhaps the capacity for same-sex love evolved as a weak form of population control. Only a very miniscule percent of the population is gay (despite what the media would have you believe), so the existence of homosexual tendencies isn't going to wipe out the species anytime soon. Because it isn't a threat to the survival of a species, it seems silly to ask if it is "wrong." It is just a mild deviation from the norm that has no consequence in the grand scheme of things.
Ask your friend, is it "wrong" to be born with a severe physical deformity that prevents you from reproducing? A lot of men and women are really ugly and can't get laid, is it wrong for them to fail to reproduce? A good portion of humans are never going to pass on their genes for a variety of reasons, but that doesn't mean their existence is wrong. If everyone reproduced, we'd have too many people and overcrowding could cause the spread of diseases that would wipe out the population. It's actually a good thing for the species that some people don't reproduce.
That's a interesting take on it. I will have to ask them that because I kinda fell silent, that too seems like well thought out answer though.
I never understood why we should look to the animal kingdom as to whats wright and wrong. Because a small percentage of the population are serial killers, does that make it not wrong? your being born examples are not potentially harmful behaviors.
speaking of using the animal kingdom as a reference, how many animals actually use homosexuality as a life long partner?
no, that was a real question, I wasn't sure if there are actual studies done about this being a genetic thong in animals as population control.
Humans are mammals, so it makes perfect sense to compare our behaviors to that of other mammals to see what is "normal." Wearing clothes, cooking food, and futzing around on the internet are thus abnormal. Doesn't mean they're bad though.
I understand what you are saying PoeticFailosiphy my question is not meant to insult you. I was just wondering since humans are mammal and we mate life long and I know other species do as well, how many of them have homosexual tendencies?
many mammals have been known to kill the young around them to eliminate potential threats due to territory. hippo's come to mind. she we do this?
Just sounds like a homophobe to me, if they can't wrap their bigotry up in religion they can always call upon science. I'm shocked that a scientist(?) would be arguing for larger populations when real scientists focus on the effects of an over populated world. Perhaps he/she isn't a scientist after all. *shocked.
they aren't, they believe in evolution and science. They also are going to school with their major in science, so I personally wouldn't call him a scientist. Also was there a answer in that statement?
why do you think its homophobia? It doesnt seem logical from an evolutionary view?
Yes, the answer is that I suspect they are homophobes who are hiding behind science.
I don't feel you understood or grasped the concept of the question here, please try again with a logical answer and not just homophobe. Present me with a idea of why you feel that homosexuality is wrong or right. thank you.
For brevity I'll put it like this . I neither believe that homosexuality is right or wrong. You're gay, straight or bisexual, which, imho, isn't something you choose, you just are. Remaining childless is a choice, not sexuality.

The news report that a college freshman took his own life when he found out that his roomate and the roomate's girlfriend recorded his private/intimate homosexual encounter in his dorm room then broadcasted it via live stream on the internet, was unsettling on more than one front. ...

If gays are a culture, then the gays population of the world is triple the population of Christian America.Why is there not a gay president or powers or other powers to stop allowing gays to be illegal in 80 countries. Watch! Pot made legal will be like the next gay marriage too.

Why is homosexuality such a hotbed issue?As a Christian I don't believe I have the right to make judgements. I also think it's interesting how we are supposed to be living with love in our hearts as Christ did but so many drag out the old testament when it's serves their purpose. Ham, Noah son...

If science proves that homosexuality is NOT a choice. Where does that leave religion?I ask in this way because if homosexuality is not a choice, then God created homosexuals as they are.

Is the bible against or okay with homosexuality?I have read scripture that goes both ways (no pun intended!) and I am honestly confused. Can some please quote scripture that shows God is against homosexuality or okay with it. And is it okay (with God) that I view it as wrong? I try not to in...
