Where is New Testament scripture that condemns being a homosexual as opposed to those which condemn gay sexual acts? "Being" and "acting out" are two different things, are they not?
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 states: "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God."
I think it pretty much sums up how God feels about such things.

Nice quote. Sorry for being off-topic, but what is a "reviler"?

Doesn't Paul in 1 Corinthians also say women should cover their heads in church? Or they are "dishonoring their head" or something similar?

I should start a "women's hats for church" business. I can see the possibilities now.

It says many things along these lines that are obviously not for today. Good point.

According to the dictionary, it is someone who uses abusive language excessively, although I would think using it at all is not a good idea either.

Thanks, I couldn't find it on Google, so I was lost. I rely on that site WAY too much.

I always throw in "definition" after the word and I get tons of hits

reviler definition - Google Search

Although, in this case "one who reviles" doesn't help much LOL.

BTW: thanks Jeff.

HAHA! True. We're getting way off-topic, but I normally do something like:

define: reviler

Which came up with nothing. But for most words it will offer some great definitions in a very easy-to-read manner.

The only person who should judge is God, right? He is ultimately the one who decides whether we go to heaven or hell so why is it that at the "church level" gays are judged and "kicked out" of their religion?
The practice of sodomy is a forgivable sin just as others are.

The verses/chapters you are looking for are:

Romans 1
I Corinthians 6:9-10
Lev. 18:22
Lev. 20:13

No comment needed since they are very plain and to the point.
