    Some might consider it a bit less than admirable, however, the way you show absolutely no understanding of context. The very things you champion are the very things Jesus railed against with such ferver, and your inability to distinguish between some old Pharisee stuff in Leviticus and the actual teachings of Jesus show that this religion of yours is simply a convenient justification for arbitrary bigotry.

    Actually I seem to be the only one who understands the context. It was a sin in the New Testament too....

    Kindly quite the passage where Jesus calls it such, then.

    It should be quite the simple matter if He did.

    Did I say Jesus is quoted as such? No, however we do not have every quote of Christ recorded. That being said, the New Testament, as I showed and quoted earlier, does quote such. That being said, Christ never overlooked sin, he forgave, but he did not blatantly allow sin. In fact, in all situations he told the sinner to go and stop sinning.

    I see. So you don't follow Jesus Christ.


    Is it Paulinianity you follow, then?

    I know exactly how that works. It is due to lack of thought, and preferring to follow those who purport to represent and interpret the religion rather than following Jesus.

    Modern day Pharisees differ little from ancient ones in that particular regard.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    The question is grossly over-simplied and is dependent upon each individual.

    "Homosexuality" may just mean the sex-act - for which the person may actually be semi-bisexual or just highly promiscuous in general. It may mean a person is only physically attracted to one gender. It may mean a person is more leaning towards attraction to one gender over they other. It may mean that sexuality and relationship isn't determined by gender of the other person.

    There also a distinction between sexuality and relationship attraction. And it may not have to do with gender, but instead with the person him/herself - ie the slogan "I fall in love with a person, not with a gender." Thus, for some people, their "orientation" isn't gender based, but on a much broader collection of whatever makes another person desirable for a relationship.

    So my answer is that for some it is a choice, for others not a choice at all, and still for others the primary question isn't sexuality, but relationship and that question isn't foremost a gender-based question, but the greater question of the personae of the other person.
