This is always a touchy subject as almost everyone knows or are related to a homosexual person.
I have an issue with the term homophobia as used today, as this word means an exaggerated fear of likeness. (homo - same, like; phobia - exaggerated fear). I don't think it has anything to do with hate. You can accept homosexuals without accepting homosexuality. The person but not the relationship.
I believe that if you have homosexual tendencies you should suppress your perverted desires and abstain from that which is an abomination to our Creator God.
I believe, as I stated in another thread, that God can separate the person from the deed. Give the body over to save the soul so to speak. God created a living soul and free will and Satan caused the flesh to sin. God loves everyone, but not necessarily their actions.
Homosexuals, as heterosexuals, should not be participating in sexual activities unless sanctioned by God.
That sanctification comes in the joining together in marriage as in our first family, Adam and Eve.
"Then God blessed them, and God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it;'" [Gen 1:28a]
This was God's first command to His creation and it would be impossible if He created them Adam and Steve as the first family.
We have allowed homosexuality to become acceptable in our society by allowing a seemingly innocuous, but insidious change. This change was allowing the term "gay" to describe the relationship and sexual orientation of persons.
The term gay was more acceptable by society and connoted a happy relationship.
I will state outright that although I was not a Christian at that time I opposed the acceptance of the term.
Not only because I knew people that had the given or family names Gay or Gaye, but because I knew what it would lead to.
I preferred the term SAD for S.S.A.D. meaning Same Sex Attraction Disorder.
This would be a more appropriate description of the unnatural relationship of same gendered persons.
I will say that I have only met four homosexual men in my lifetime. Two in tavern washrooms, one in a bus depot restroom and a priest that put "the move" on me.
My final word in this post is that homosexuals should NOT be allowed to form a union in marriage, an institution accepted by God. They, like single heterosexual couples, should practice abstinence.
In His service
