You're probably referring to thread about Ted Haggard on ATS in which I and a few others are arguing the "sinfulness" of homosexuality (unless you
meant "today" in the broader sense of the time in which we live i.e. 21 century). If that's the case then I suppose there's no real need for me
to restate everything I said in that thread. (either way I don't feel like reiterating what I've already said lol)
But I will say this:
The quotes that people are posting in here are known as "The Clobber Passages", they're basically a homophobe's best weapon in denouncing
homosexuality as far as the Bible is concerned. However, it becomes quite clear, given a proper understanding of the historic and scriptual context
in which these passages were written, that they are not denouncing homosexuality as a whole.
Some passages are denouncing the cult temple prostitutes, as many cults had prostitutes in their temple both as priests and priestess in some
instances and as a means to support the temple monetarily. The prostitutes were both male and female and both catered to both male and female
Other passages are denouncing the sexual immorality of the Romans. The passage from Romans one posted mentioned is such a passage. It stated that
these people were heterosexual and able to enjoy a straight relationship but turned to homosexuality in their opulent endulgences.

You seem smart enough to not need someone to tell you how to feel about something. You need to decide for yourself, based off prayer, meditation, and
the reading of scripture, whether or not it is a sin.
Anyone who tries to make God exclusive, who tries to say you can't get into heaven because of something you can't change, is not a Christian in my
