This is what the Bible says about this subject:
Read:
I Carinthians 6:9-10
Genesis 19
Leviticus 20:13
Romans 1:26-27
Um, none of them say anything about homosexuality. Ugh, I'm tired of having to explain those passages to poorly educated Christians. All of those deal with pagan worship practices.

From my version of the Holy Bible, the 'New International Version', it's very explicit. What does your version of the Holy Bible say??????

Perhaps you need to quote the words to which you refer. It looks to me like your Genesis quote refers more to an admiration of incest than a ban on homosexuality.

I find it interesting that you chose to cite a passage wherein girls have sex with their father.

There are many that profess Christ now that will tell you that it is a choice - that Christ transformed them away freeing them from this curse. Look it up.

This curse looks to be associated with rejecting God as the creator. We all know God exists. We choose to suppress this deceiving ourselves leading to deceiving others.

"And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea." Matthew 18:5-6

Romans 1

"18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
"


The fool says in his heart, there is no God. (Psalm 53:1) He doesn't say it in his brain. There are plenty of intelligent people in the world that just do not "thou shall not" and accountability for how they live their lives.

This includes people in high places of authority in this life that have financial resources to push an evolution religious belief promoting Atheistic/Agnostic evangelists such as Richard Dawkins, et al.
Wow, uneducated, backward bigotry at its finest.

Unfortunately I have never considered myself God. Therefore I have to follow what God teaches in the Holy Bible.

Do you also follow the part where he tells you to kill children who curse their parents?

After all, it's only a few verses away from the verse that talks about homosexuality.

Based on that, using your own choice of passages, you must be in favor of girls having babies with their father.

I think what he is saying is that he will totally do what God wants, so long as it happens to also be what he wants.

You mean you get to pick and choose which rules you'll follow and which ones you'll ignore
