Where did Paul get his inspiration? Now you might answer out of the air, and you would be close: more like out of the heavens, from God.Even the NT makes no mention of sodomy being a sin. It's funny if you go back to the actual text even in the OT. The translation says they were talking about rape or forced sodomy. The act itself if done to a woman does not seem to be a sin according to Jesus. Of course he made no mention of gay at all. Paul is the one who mentioned it.
He equated all manner of sins together, since his reason for being here was to bring salvation to all men and women, regardless of their sin, but that did not mean that after receivng that salvation, they should continue in their sins.If it was that important, why didn't Jesus mention it?
What "natural order"? We left that behind a few thousand years ago, civilisation is a human construct.
You are steering your children away from the natural order when you teach them to use a spoon to eat and how to put a shirt on.

Incidentally, my parents divorced, my dad remarried, so I had two mothers, which I always considered a bonus.
