If that is the case they we should try every act of homosexuality in a court of law!!! And punish the offender in prision.

So what is it? a choice or we punish the offenders?
We have no choice who we are attracted to and who we fall in love with. And, yes, normally that results in having sex with that person - same sex or opposite sex.

You put gays in the same category as thieves and murderers? Pointless to discuss anything with a narrow-minded bigot like you. I just love how you fundies call yourself good christians who will go to heaven. If heaven is full of people like you I'd rather not spend eternity there.

Now, you could *choose* to change the color of your eyes with contacts, but it only hides your true nature. You could learn a new language, but that won't change the wiring your brain acquired from learning your native language. You can go get a tan, but your skin's ability to pigment is still the same.
Yet, the picking of the contacts, which tanning salon to go to and which language software to use are all choices.

Homosexuality is a choice just like drinking alcohol. But the alcoholic wants it to be a disease because he wants to be devoid of responsibility for his actions. The same is for the homosexual!

Brain physiology. Learn some.


Homosexuals are wired that way. They cannot "choose" their attraction to the same sex any more than you chose your attraction to the opposite sex.

They may, because they are human, override their instinctual desires wired into their brains, but denying one's true nature is long known to be psychologically damaging.

So you are putting homosexuals into the position of "You are, by your nature, an aberration, and in order to not be an aberration, you must act in a way that is damaging and dangerous to you, thus making you unstable."

Is that what you call Christian love?

I did not put homosexuals in the same category as theives and murderers, God did. Anyone who commits adultery is a theif.

Marriage is the covenant of one man and one woman under God. Any sex out of this relationship is Adultery.
