    To whoever it applies to: why do you think homosexuality is wrong?

    I'd really like to hear anything but "it says its a sin in the Bible". What are YOUR personal reasons for believing homosexuality is wrong?

    It is wrong for heterosexuals and right  for the latter. As a species, we were created and evolved from our original state, to become sexually reproductive entities.This promotes the species and was meant to be that way. To be all the same sex or of only one sex, would see the demise of our kind, as it would any biological species. Because those that are attracted to the same sex are probably genetically influenced, we can not condemn anyone who is like this. As human beings with hearts and spirits, we must accept what we can't change and respect all other human beings, regardless of their sexual orientation.

    I do not believe that homosexuality is wrong. Each of us is as God has made us, and since a majority of gay folks are that way from birth, it is a part of God's plan for them. It would be presumptious for me to second guess God on this.

    And, by the way, the Bible does not say that homosexuality is wrong. You can check it yourself, (but make sure that you get an accurate translation of the original Bible, as some versions have been adapted to reflect the beliefs of the translator, as opposed to the original word of God).

      Have you ever read the Bible????  It is clear that the Bible teaches that it is wrong, just as adultery, lying, cheating, stealing, lusting, fornicating are all wrong.  Which Bible translation would you like me to prove it to you in?

    Speaking from a hetereosexual point of view, people should be left to be who and whay they are provided they are no threat to society. Homosexuality is not a threat to anyone. So live and let live. If you're a Christian then you must know that if Jesus was among you, he would embrace and love homosexuals just the same as anyone else - despite what any bible might say. In some cases I feel that the backlash against homosexuals is similar to the witch hunts of previous centuries - an evil that we surely don't want repeated.

    Ya off course, it is wrong because if everyone on Earth became homosexual then the original species of humans get extinct.......

    Romans 1: 25-32 pretty much covers a bunch of things...my favorite in the list is "disobedient to parents;" something we've all managed: "For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

    26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in [t]their own persons the due penalty of their error.

    28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
    One of these days, someone's going to list The Bible as a Hate Speech Document and start the Persecution of the American Church in earnest; bringing the revival for which so many Born Agains have been praying.

    It is not natural and that is not how we are made ... even science says so otherwise we would have been taught a little more than just reproduction in our biology classes. Everyone has a masculine side and a feminine side ... You choose the one you want to dominate. I do not believe anyone is born a homosexual ... to me that's just a feeble excuse to justify their habit.

    A quote that can be applied to many issues including this one comes to mind...

    "Human beings are the only creature on earth who claim of God; and the only living thing that behaves like it hasn't got one." - Unknown

    Can two men have a baby? Can two women have a baby? (WITHOUT medical help,or another human being a carrier)

    When this is possible, by basic acts of the two having "sex", let me know. Until then, it is not natural, for if it was, this would be possible.

    To say anything besides God condems it in the Bible would hold no meaning.  I stand on His Word, and if He (and He does) say something is a sin (which it is) I will treat it as such.  God is very cleae on this matter.  He says not to "lie with manking as with womenkind".
      If you don't accept what God says in His Word, then who am I to say my opinion?  My opinion is of little value.  What matters is what God says, and He says it is sin.

    Homosexuality is wrong because it is a product of fallen Man's sexual endeavors that are misguided and full of error. It is not just homosexuality that is wrong; there is much more that has gone wrong with us in terms of sexual behavior...

    "If a man also lies with a man, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." (Leviticus 20:13)

    There are all kinds of sexual behavior in the animal kingdom, but God specifically states that homosexuality among people is a sin.

    To be clear, I am not against homosexuals, only the act of homosexuality. All of us are sinners, so none of us have a "leg to stand on" to point fingers at anyone else's sin.

    God designed us man and woman, Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

    I do think that there is a biological proclivity toward homosexuality. I do not believe that it is purely choice - at least in most or some cases. However, I do think, like any other natural tendency that is not in alignment with the will of God or harmful to us, being natural doesn't make it ok.
