    I don't believe in "sin", so I can't answer that question. Unnatural? No.

    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.

    How can one prove something is a sin or not? Would that not mean you would have to prove the religion is right?

    Only to those who believe it is.

    I don't believe in sin and I don't think it is artificial. It occurs naturally, so it's natural.
    Can you prove your claim?
    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.

    Sinful? Perhaps to some but like Tess I do not believe in "sin".

    Natural? Sure it is found in nature however I would not use nature as an acceptable/not acceptable measure. After all some animals will kill and eat their young in times of stress or if they feel their off spring is flawed. I would not recommend such behavior in humans obviously.

    Do I see anything wrong with homosexuality among consenting adults? No.

    Re: Is Homosexuality sinful and/or unnatural?

    From biblical sense it is a sin, but so is stealing, adultery, drunkenness,idol worship and many other things. From society's perspective maybe it is and maybe its not depending on the society.

    As for being un-natural of course. We are not a hermaphroditic species,so same sex intercourse do not promote procreation. So the idea that someone who finds the opposite sex repulsive and carry on their genetic traits is laughable. Sure some animals engage in what appears to be homosexual sex but that male dog is not humping the other male dog because it finds other male dogs attractive,nor is that female dog humping other female dogs because it finds other female dogs attractive.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It's not wrong in any way and "natural" is nothing but propaganda, as it is used by the opponents of civil rights because they cannot offer even a slightly rigorous definition.

    Where's that option.

    You can't prove sin, I don't believe it to be sin, but you can't prove it.

    And it is natural, it happens in nature, therefore it is natural.

    I believe that it is a sin according to the Bible. I also believe it's unnatural.
