What you are failing to see is that you have a misconception as to what homosexuality IS. You believe it is a choice and stemming from that you are
saying that if people CHOOSE to commit "sin" then they are responsible. I agree, we are all responsible for our actions, however you have to come to
the understanding that even though you see homosexuality and homosexuals behaviour as unnatural and wrong, they see heterosexuality as the same
They are simply being themselves and true to themselves - which is difficult when we live in a time of everyone judging everyone.
These people SEE people of the same sex as potential partners, it is not a matter of "hmm i want to sleep with that guy/girl cause i want to be gay"
- it's "oh id like to sleep with that guy/girl because i am SEXUALLY attracted to them.
God did create human kind and all existence, so therefor he created everything herein. If you try and say god did not create them, then you are saying
that something else did - in your view, what did create homosexuality?
Saying that they are giving into "urges" is an interesting thing. The fact is, what do you consider an urge? I have the urge to scratch my nose when
i have an itch, that's not weakness, it's a reaction to a stimuli.
Having said that, it is also well known that at some points in a persons life, they MAY find some one else of the same sex appealing, not that they
would act on it, but there is a distinct difference between apeal and sexual interest.
Also, giving into "urges" is different from following ones own natural inclination, the way they were born and developed - by the hand of God and
God did create burgulars and murderers and rapists.. God created HUMAN KIND. which encapsulates all kinds of humans, the "negative" and the
I respect your opinion, however i do think you need to try and see it from their perspective, not that i can either, but i can empathise, let me try
and give you a glimpse of what it would be like if i or you were subject to the same ruling because we are heterosexual.
Let's turn this around and imagine that the world was predominantly gay. You are born into a gay family (by whatever imaginary means) and you grow up
in a gay environment, yet you like people of the opposite sex. This creates a conundrum. Do you let everyone know that you are, in your own natural
way, hetero? or do you conseal it? and become a CLOSETED hetero.
Given that the world is then going to be leaning towards gay being the "right" way and the social stigma attached to that, would you feel BAD for
being heterosexual? No, however you would feel akward and not wish to let other people know of your orientation. Think of your life then, if you were
only able to partake in a hetero couple environment in secret. It does not make it wrong, because to you it's natural you are merely acting out your
natural inclination to the opposite sex.
What you have said, is in essense, the real reason why homosexuals dont feel comfortable coming out and being accepted as who they are. Do not be a
barrier. It is not your job to decide that which is right and wrong, God will judge people accordingly and even those, who live by his rules, yet
judge others as if they have some precedent of "right" living, will be judged accordingly.
I suggest some serious and open minded approach to understanding homosexuals, the analogy i gave above of the world being gay, would be a good place
to start. If it is natural to them (which it undeniably is) then there is no issue. However, there are healthy ways of expressing their love for each
other, both behind and in open door scenarios.
God loves all, God created all, we are responsible for our sin, but i do not honetsly believe that God would punish something which he created and by
doing so, have created a situation where god would have to punish for following normal (for gay people) and natural (for gay people) activities.
Im not going to say you are a homophobe, however preaching the gospel and saying this and that about sexuality is kind of a moot point, when it seems
you are all caught up in "the rules" (which are right) and forgetting the base principles that Jesus preached.
I have to say though, that i do believe homosexuality is being pushed in media as a lifestyle of "choice" - which it is not, ask any homosexual
person, they never chose, they just WERE. I do not feel that pushing homosexual lifestyle is RIGHT, nor do i think that pushing and reinforcing hetero
lifestyle is right either. People must do what is RIGHT for them.
ACCEPTANCE and TOLERANCE
regardless of ethnicity or sexual preference or gender or age.
