Americans Split on Whether Being Homosexual is a Sin
Do you think homosexuality is a sin? Americans are split on the question‚ÄĒand many do not appreciate if a church teaches that homosexuality is sinful. So says a recent LifeWay Research survey.
Forty-four percent believe homosexuality is a sin and 43 percent say it is not. Thirteen percent are not sure.
Being a born-again, evangelical or fundamentalist Christian often corresponds with a negative view of homosexuality. Among those groups, 82 percent say homosexual behavior is a sin while 14 percent say it is not a sin. In contrast, 29 percent of all other religious groups say it is sinful and 51 percent say it is not....
they have stolen the colors of the rainbow from us and left us with black and white. they have distorted God's promise to mankind into being a symbol of rebellion - the very reason that God flooded the earth to begin with. we can't display a rainbow anywhere without being thought of as gay. that's a very effective strategy Satan's got goin' on there. and it's a shame because the colors are beautiful. when are we going to take the colors back? every time you see those colors, go and tell the person using them the real meaning of the rainbow because of God's love for them.

You all don't be blaming the dems for it all. This is on both sides-- including the leadership of the church which cares more about property overseas and foreign adventures than the protection of the children.
look at the millions that are given to return people to a homeland that is always on the verge of destruction -- its like the watchmen are all asleep.

Little children don't have sexual desires, period. Unless they are raped and sexualized,which is a crime.
Testosterone level seems to have little to do with homosexuality, it's in the mind more than anything else, and many homos are macho sportsmen and soldiers (who Kay Griggs says get the promotions, that homosexuality is rampant in the military).
However, all the govt subsidized soy that's put in our food, including baby formula, contributes phytoestrogens that stunt sexual physical development in boys, cause girls to develop too quickly. This deliberate policy by the Luciferian "planners" who own this planet to destroy the family, turn everything upside down, as above so below as the Freemasons like to say.
The TV Show Good Christian B------(word for female dogs in heat) portrays Christians as mean hypocrites and the homo and the atheist as the good people who try to step around and repair the damage the evil Christians do. Show produced by Jewish homosexuals, so what can you expect. Hardly a peep of complaint by the churches about this Christian-bashing sit-com.

Plese do not neutralise nor validate sin, it will only send people to hell and eternal punishment. John MacArthur deals with the aspect of genetics in this sermon here on SA God's View of Homosexuality

Rubbish. That is NOT the words of the Christian. GOD does NOT create people as abominations.
You are trying to justify and legalize sin. Sin? Sin? SIN? SIN???
Sin is not just doing the odd thing wrong. Sin is not just a simple malady. Sin is not just how genetics happen by chance to bring you into life circumstances.
Sin is a dominating power which the true Christian has to fight and struggle against. Indeed God the Holy Spirit fights against it as Gal 5:17 teaches. God HATES sin!
Rom 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord"
I believe homosexuality is the result of some form of genetic mutation. Many homosexuals identify their attraction to the same sex as small children. Many homosexuals also do not want to be homosexual, leading to mental distraught and even suicide. However unnatural it is, there are some people who are just born this way. As a Christian, I believe homosexuality to be one of the many results of perverted human nature like many other genetic mutations. I believe homosexuality can be the result of biological means, which cannot be helped. On the other hand, there are people who intend to be gay by converting and/or being bi-sexual, which I feel is not protected by "the fall." In the case of intending to be gay or bi-sexual, I feel is a sinful, competent decision. I feel the actual act of physical sex between two homosexuals is where sin enters the situation. If homosexuals were celibant, then I feel the mere sinfulness of their condition would be reserved. Only thing is, they want sex too.
I'm told it's mostly the younger people who are ambivalent about this and other issues that we "olders" never had a problem with. Then again my generation wasn't smothered by modern/post-modern rationalization as much as kids now seem to be.

At one time they were but God opted to throw the 1/3 who rebelled against Him out of Heaven. No poll needed!
Quote: ""Men and Americans without a college degree are more likely to say homosexuality is sinful. Forty-seven percent of men say it is a sin, but only 40 percent of women. And, 49 percent of those without a college degree say homosexual behavior is a sin, compared with 35 percent who have a college degree.""
I guess that means that education is bad for you?
I guess some women take a softer attitude to questions like this about other people.
God says that homosexuality is an abomination. Is that worse than 'sin??
Strongs on "Abomination" H8441 תּעבה תּועבה tô‛êbah tô‛êbah to-ay-baw', to-ay-baw' Feminine active participle of H8581; properly something disgusting (morally), that is, (as noun) an abhorrence; especially idolatry or (concretely) an idol: - abominable (custom, thing), abomination."
Who determines what is good and what is evil? GOD! And He has said it is evil (sinful). So both the indifference of some and opposition of others are against God.
"Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." Jude 1:7
