Hermaphrodite - Hermaphrodism In Humans
Hermaphroditism in any species can be explained as a naturally occurring process of biology and evolution. If God is responsible, on the other hand, then God has some 'splaining to do. Much as God needs to explain babies with birth defects, and flesh eating bacteria and, well, the list goes on and on. If the explanation is that biology, being a natural process, is not always precise, then there is no intent involved. If God is responsible on the other hand, then such things were done on purpose.

Don't you think Man and his pollution and own doings have any affect upon birth defects, diseases, or his environment? Seems that your Atheist god, that does not exist, is the blame for everything wrong in your life. Made up, your scapegoat for everything.

Don't drink the water...but you gotta drink something.
Don't breath the air today...good luck with that.

Sin = Harm to Life; to destroy life, or cause harm to life.
To pollute and destroy the earth is sin. To lie and deceive causes harm...

God doesn't reject the harmless; but men with bloody hands do.

God does not make those decisions, we do, and the God I know is always against those that cause Harm and has Blood on their hands.

I don't think a Hermaphrodite is a problem for God; yet it can be a problem for other people. Watch out for bigots.

I don't think God micromanages to that extent. I don't think he concerns himself with it.

Amen.

I don't think God gives a rat's butt who people have consensual sex with any more than it matters whether we eat baked potatoes or mashed. It's just not important in the grand scheme of things.

As an atheist, can I give you an AMEN?
What is it about sex that garners so much more attention than lying, stealing, false witnessing and/ or even, especially, the very first of those commandments?

They are all carnal things and they have never really mattered and still don't. Our spiritual development and maturity are and have always been God's concern, period. (The "mature consensual" qualifier is a spiritual one.)

As if this Infinite Spiritual Being could care about genitalia on
us little, teeny creatures here (ha, sin was even mentioned.. What?)....
It would be like a brilliant nuclear physicist caring about an ant's.

But, Trout's answer was best, Oops.
