    Do you think it sinless and natural? Why?

    Can you prove your claim?
    I think you meant to poll on homosexual acts. the temptation itself not being any more sinful than any temptation.

    Really digs? How can it be unnatrual, when it happens in nature, and isn't artificial? Homosexual sex acts don't lead to procreation, but that doesn't mean it's not natural. Also being natural doesn't make it a good thing to do, or morally right, cannibalism is natural, but that doesn't make it right.

    I believe it's unnatural that we have a poll like this every month and it is started by straight people.

    Re: Is Homosexuality sinful and/or unnatural?

    It's not a sin in my beliefs (although I know that some people believe that it is a sin according to their religion or personal religious beliefs).

    Yes, homosexuality is natural because attraction is natural (from what I believe about attraction and my definition of natural). Homosexuality is an attraction to people of the same sex, not the sexual acts that are associated with being done by people of the same sex when engaging in sex. Also, it doesn't matter if it is somehow unnatural (although I don't know how it could be unnatural). We don't outlaw things just because they are "unnatural", even if the majority believes they are unnatural.

    There is no proof necessary to prove that it isn't a sin (sin comes from personal and/or religious beliefs) nor that whether it is natural or not (as explained above). Neither it being a sin or natural/unnatural can be considered when it comes to making laws or ensuring equal protection.

    Variations occur in nature. Hair color, handedness, eye color, height...and within commonly occuring variations (i.e. blue/brown eyes), there are abnormal exceptions (i.e. green or hazel eyes). There isn't a biological or physiological component of life that doesn't have variation. To think sexuality is any different seems...odd. I can't prove anything because I'm not a scientist.
    Just curious. How do you define sin?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: Is Homosexuality sinful and/or unnatural?

    I don't consider it unnatural. Considering it happens routinely in nature, where situations of "upbringing" and such aren't present, I think its a bit ridiculous to call it such.

    As to whether or not its a sin in a general sense, that's up to each individual religious person to decide based on their best understanding of their belief system. In an absolute sense, whether or not its a sin is something we frankly will not and can not fully know in our mortal lives and would only be known by God if there is one.

    I don't think any laws should prohibit Christians from thinking Homosexuality is a sin or disliking it. However, their disliking it or disapproval of it isn't a reasonable reason for the law to act against Homosexuals and the law...which should be secular...supporting their rights is not forcing Christians to "like" homosexuality nor believe its not a sin.

    I don't feel the need to, I'm not trying to convert anyone to homosexuality, nor am I desperate that everyone agrees with it. I'm perfectly willing to stay the hell out of other people's bedrooms provided they stay out of mine.
    Well stated, I agree.
