That was the case as well for a number of Mormons and former Mormons I know online.

If that were the case, bigotry against homosexuals would be a rather new thing - and it's not.

When men boink men and women boink women, they aren't contributing to the increase of the tribe's population, thereby weakening the tribe.

Really So before television, there was no discrimination toward homosexuals? Or is television, etc. just the current excuse to hate?

Where does the NT condemn homosexuality?
Answer: It doesn't.
I wouldnt doubt that you could find a contextually altered publication of the bible to condone anything from genocide to beastiality. Add to that how adept we as humans have become at concocting customized morals and values...

Whether the bible originally condemed homosexuality or not [Lev.13-22], the adomonition to love thy brother still applies. Disapproving of someones actions or lifestyle does not include hating the person.

Well it ain't "ancient time" anymore, and if victimized today the likelihood is that it will be tribe member that is the perpetuation.

Not thousands of years ago, when such taboos began to be formed.
