    It's not sinful, no. However, I consider it to be some kind of "soul polarity disorder", meaning the male and female parts of the soul get mixed in a specific way. Imagine putting a woman in a man's body and vice versa. That would give you some idea.

    Two died in WWII, One in Korea, and two in Vietnam. Most of the women married, raised their own families and are all but dead now. I think one of the sisters did go, and 2 of his brothers. He didn't.

    My Great-grandfather supported them by selling fruit from a roadside stand.

    Sounds like a book. I found my family-of-origin, and turns out my dad was the youngest of seven, with lots of information about how his grandfather sent his children over 1-2 at a time (from Finland).

    Do you think it sinless and natural? Why?

    Can you prove your claim?
    For the millionth time no. I swear this same question gets "polled" every month if not week.

    Yeah, another cool part is both his parents were born in County Cork, Ireland, but met in NY.

    Within the context of Christianity, most conservative interpretations say that homosexual activity is indeed sinful. This is due to multiple passages in scripture, both OT and NT, describing it as such.

    Note that this is an interpretation that is internal to the Christian religion, nor are all those who profess Christianity in agreement with it. It is, to my knowelge, the majority opinion within Christiandom however.


    Regarding the question of whether homosexuality is or is not "natural", it depends on the context. At one time I said "unnatural"... I have seen arguments to the contrary that have left me uncertain whether a certain level of non-standard sexual behavior may be more commonplace in nature than I once believed. Now, that in and of itself doesn't directly correlate to morality, norms or law.... there are plenty of things certain animals do that we condemn in humans (including murder, cannibalism and incest).

    Outside of the context of Christian beliefs, I tend to mind my own business really. For me to tell a homosexual who is not a Christian, that their lifestyle is sinful in my religious tradition is probably futile and will mean little to them.


    Socially and legally, I would prefer that marriage remain a male-female thing. I think gay marriage is a misnomer and a contradiction to thousands of years of human society and custom. If my society decides to legalize it, however, I will have little choice but to play along, won't I? And it looks like that will probably happen someday.

    Mostly though, I really don't spend that much time thinking about 'teh gayz'.... it just isn't one of my Big Issues.

    I think you are mistaking "fantasy" for "temptation". Jesus said that he who has (for example) committed adultery in their mind has committed it in their heart - but Jesus was also famously tempted in the desert. The desire to do things that are wrong are in every man (and womans') heart - it is the giving in to that desire that is sinful, not the temptation itself.

    i suppose there you would have to ask if you were defining our higher or fallen nature. plenty of things happen "naturally" that we consider to be morally unacceptable.

    Sinful? I have concerns there and am not convinced it is sinful. However, as noted, that's more personal belief and how you define sin. Even if it were sinful, we have little right to legislate someone else's behavior without just case, meaning more than it being it sinful to us.
    truth. your right to swing your fists ends at my nose - not at your shoulder.
