do you find religious teachings against homosexuality offensive.
science has proven that being gay is something your born with. how can loving another adult be wrong?
I believe that there are many sins that we all commit and that we cannot be perfect, so Jesus was.
We all have our sins. And we have all fallen short of the Glory of God.
But, if we truly turn our hearts over to Jesus, the Holy Spirit will lead us to change the things we need to change.
I am not judge of the people.
My job as a christian is to spread the Good News that Jesus was the perfect sacrifice and He has provided a way for man to communicate with God without the assistance of any other man.
Because each man will stand before our Abba Father and give an account. And when it is my turn, I cannot say that "he" said or "she" said anything.
It will be my actions, decisions and life that represent what I receive.
Science has NOT proven that homosexuals are created at birth.What studies have shown is that when sensitive children are denied sufficient love and parental bonding due to abuse,neglect or absence from a parent of the same gender when they are young;they then have a tendency to seek the love they were denied from someone of their gender when they get older.
Loving is never wrong but homosexuals confuse animalistic lust and sex with love.True love will prohibit people from engaging in dangerous carnal acts that are so strongly condemned in the Bible as immoral .
Elton John thinks Jesus was gay. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/35466984 So for everything the bible has taught mankind over the past 2000 years, it's payback time. I, myself, think that Moses was a transvestite. That's just me, though. You can come to your own conclusions.
No I find religious teachings that allow women to be pastors offensive.
I find religious teachings that made black people slaves offensive.
I find religous teachings that make women slaves offensive.
I find religious teachings that teach sexism offensive.
I find religous teachings offensive...
Religious teaching against homosexuality should not be offensive. We have freedom of religion in America and many other countries. What is offensive is forcing their beliefs upon the rest of the world. I have never found justification in the Bible to force beliefs onto others; in fact, I find the opposite. Christians are to stay out of other peoples business. This doesn't apply to Islam. Their Book teachers them to force people to submit.

There is a lot of criticism that occurs when the discussion of homosexuality is brought up within the subject of religion. I am a Christian and feel that I do not have the right to Judge another human being.
I will stand before God and be judged for my actions. However I am also forgivable and so is the next person.
The bible says a sin is a sin not one is better or worse than the other.
So when I hear someone being judged for there sexual orientation I am offended because there is one judge and it is God!
It is my belief that the religious teachings against homosexuality is just another way to show prejudice acts against another human being by no means shows any actions of love and acceptance.
“To be of Christ you must be Christ-like and to be Christ like you must first loved as he first Loved us”
Loving another adult is always good.
But having sex with them is a different matter entirely.
Engaging in homosexual activitity has nothing to do with love, only lust.
God doesn't give a whit what "science" says. I personally find it hugely offensive that more religious people do NOT speak out against homosexuality. That can be done without personally pointing a finger at anyone. And those individuals or groups who get offended are only exhibiting their own rebellion against the word of God.
Brenda Durham. why does homosexuality only promote lust. you have me confused. are you saying that 2 men or 2 women can't love each other fully? and where did you get your information from, i'm curious?you state that god doesn't give a whit what science says but if god gave us the ability to think and learn, which science is all about then i'm thinking your wrong. god as you want to believe made man so if man can love another man then either god screwed up and isn't so grand or there is no god. your ideas are kind of desturbing to say the least but i'm guessing you don't sin so you have the right to think like this. for people like you passing judgement must be ok.
Dr. dean crosby. you are wrong sir. science has proven that genetic make up and our genes dictate our sexuality. religion has stated without proof your hypothicy. try to use religion as fact against a person like myself is not the best idea as science is my favorite subjest to study. i never write about fiction and call it fact. i'll say it again .NEVER. if you want to debate your ideas great, but don't try to insinuate that your ideas are scientificaly proven when i know for a fact that mine are. and you are a dr. you say. hmmmm
Can you provide us with evidence of this scientific proof?
No, I do not find them offensive, at least not the teachings I am familiar with.
What I find offensive is people ( any people) who think that God will save them "in" their sin, rather than " from" it.
Religious teachings are what they are - it is how followers act on the teachings that is important.
In Christianity for example, there are a few scattered verses condemning homosexuality (maybe, there are issues with translation in some widely quoted sources). There are whole books, indeed the majority of the New Testament, which instructs you to love, respect, honor and support your neighbors, your brothers and sisters in Christ, and people different from you. The Bible also teaches not to judge others.
By acting in ways that outwardly punish people for being homosexual (something they may not have a choice about) Christians are violating the much larger and more substantial teachings of Jesus about love, tolerance and forgiveness, and that is what I find offensive.
In the church that I go to-when I have the chance-I have never heard sermons on homosexuality. However, it would depend on the type of sermon. If it the Love the sinner, hate the sin type sermon, I would not be offended. My church is a church of love and compassion. We are taught not to judge others for who they are or what they do. However, i would be offended if the sermon is full of hate. I am sure the sermons at Westboro Baptist are full of hate. I don't intend to go to one of their churches or watch one online.
Disagree with the birth thing. Yes, it is true some are born that way. However, there are some that are made. For example, my husband's friend's niece was married two or three times. In each of these marriages her spouse was verbally and physically abusive. She found an emotionally and physically secure and loving relationship with another woman.

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...

At the risk of being bashed and stepped on here in the forums. I am curious as to why we spend our energy on discriminating and and opposing homosexuality.I am straight and I don't care if you are gay. However, many straight people seem almost obsessed with this. They make it an issue and I don;t...

Quite a powerful story:http://www.danoah.com/2012/04/a-teens-b … e-gay.htmlI think this explains why so many of us are bothered by the "hate the sin, not the sinner" nonsense that many right-wing Christians trot out. Homosexuality is not an act, it's a fundamental orientation, and...

Is it possible to truly be religious as well as believe in the evidence of science with theories such as evolution, the Big Bang and dinosaurs existing prior to man not along side? (Please keep it clean and civil guys, thank you.)

This is another religious topic, but unlike most that are posted. The basis of this thread is to gather the thoughts of atheists, evolutions or scientologists and christians can even chime in. Most evolutionists believe that the world wasn't created by a God, but rather formed through many...
