• Biblical answer? Yes.

    If you believe in the outlines given in the Bible, then yes it is. If you attempt to say no, then you have to bring up all other sins. If you say homosexuality is no longer a sin, then telling lies is no longer a sin, murder, etc all becomes outdated as a sin.

  • Look at where the vilification of homosexuality came from.

    If an eternal god says something is wrong, it doesn't just become not wrong with time. Christians claim that it's "okay now" because that was old testament, and now we follow the new. Except Jesus openly said he was coming to enforce his fathers laws. And besides that, everyone is always quoting the 10 commandments, of which, are old testament. You can't pick and choose.

    I'm not sure what apology the Islamic community has come up with to defend their intolerance. But if they have one it wouldn't matter.

    Christianity and Islam are the two leading religions with followers into the billions, they are rightfully the first two we should concern ourselves with when discussing intolerance.

    At the end of the day, your respective books written by your respective gods clearly and shamelessly demand these beliefs, no matter how you might twist and wring the text for any other meaning.

  • Of course it still is biblically...

    Leviticus 18:22
    You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-11

    Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

    Romans 1:26-28

    For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

    So, it does say in the bible it is a sin to be a homosexual. Thank you have a nice day.

  • Yes, but no more protesting!!

    I say homosexuality is a sin, but the one thing that I hate the most is people who protest against them, I mean, we know it's wrong, but if it's your opinion that their going to hell or not, just let it happen, let them go to hell if you think it will happen.

  • Hasn't it always been a sin?

    OK you used to get stoned for multiple things like lying, cheating, not being a virgin, and yes homosexuality. But, God never told us to stop. Man got the idea in their head that they can stop listening to what the bible says to do and change things around. They started a belief we no longer had to kill those who disobeyed God. But as for the homosexuality question think of it this way, If it werent a sin, it would be considered good in Gods eyes. Now what is good in Gods eyes? Everything that works like its suppose to do. So how does a man work? He works to produce sperm for women. Women work to take sperm and make a baby. That in Gods eyes is good. He did say to multiply after all. Now can you multiply naturally without a woman in a homosexual relationship? No. Same way reversed. Its not good. Eve was made for Adam. Not Adam and Steve. Imagine you are a creator of a robot that is designed to paint only. You gave it the parts, the time and all it needed to do that one job. But instead of painting, it wants to sing. How would you feel? You made the robot to paint, but it refuses. So that's why being gay, lesbian, bi, transexual, or whatever else you can think of besides straight is wrong.

  • No Gays allowed

    According to The bible OBVIOUSLY God created Adam and Eve which are a man and woman. It shows no homosexual activity should be taken. It's a persons fault I dislike but it's the sin they have committed which is an offence to god. This is why God did not create Adam and stEVE

    It tears me to see all sinners especially when I'm 13

  • God's Word does not change

    Homosexuality is a sin today as much as it was a sin during Old Testament times. God has not changed his mind on this in the last few thousand years. We need to treat homosexuals fairly, but we do not need to agree with their choices. God says to love the sinner but hate the sin

  • Biblical View of Homosexuality

    The Biblical view of homosexuality is that it is wrong. God designed sexual relations to be between a man and woman (Gen. 2:18-24). Because of the entrance of sin into the world God's design for sexuality has been corrupted (Gen. 3; Rom. 1:18-32). Homosexuality is forbidden in scripture (Gen. 19; Lev. 18:22; Judges 19; 1Corinth. 6:9-10; 1 Tim. 1:9-10). To all the Christians on here, reject all forms of sexual sin as perversions of God's will, but remember to also love and embrace those struggling with sexual sins, including homosexuality. It may seem hard but the reason why most homosexuals won't listen is because we tend to preach to them with hate and not love. Freedom from sin, including homosexuality, can be found in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 5:1; 1 John 1:9).

  • Yes, homosexuality is a sin in 'today's world'.

    It is indeed a sin. Homosexuality is rebellion against the laws of God and nature (which are one and the same). I believe homosexuality has been caused by a variety of factors, including propaganda to minors -- "anything goes", the injection of hormones within foods to induce homosexual feelings, mental disease, and simple, outright, denial-of-God choice.

  • Yes, homosexuality is a sin.

    "Is being homosexual a sin in today's time?" As of yet, the church has not officially changed its teachings on homosexuality, with the exception of Pope Francis proclaiming that we must treat homosexuals as equals in spite of their tendencies, but even then thats not necessarily a change. So... Yes, it is still a sin.

  • Stoning your children

    Biblically homosexuality is a sin, but according to the same book www should stone our rebellious children. We don't enforce that, do we? The Bible argument is double-edged sword. So no, homosexuality isn't a sin, since we cannot support the first Bible quote without supporting the other one, too, can we?

  • Having homosexual tendencies is not a sin

    According to the Catholic church having homosexual tendencies is not a sin. The sin is the act itself of embracing those tendencies and acting upon them. Homosexuality has been proven to be a psycological disorder that society implants in the minds od children. Broken marriages are causes that a child might have homosexual tendencies, the lack of a masculine figure in families is also a cause because children need to learn from a paternal and a maternal figure.
    There is people with homosexual tendencies that have decided to have an espiritual life, rejecting those anti-natural tendencies.
    In conclusion the act is what makes the sin, not the tendecy.

  • Homosexuality is not a sin

    Nowhere in the Bible does is say that homosexuality is a sin. Even the new pope believes that if one were to love another of the same sex and still be faithful to god there is no problem. A better question is "Is homosexuality natural?" From a scientific standpoint it is not natural because sex is for reproduction. If there is no reproduction, then it is not necessary/ natural.

  • It does not say it in the bible deliberately

    In the bible it does not say it is a sin but says that man and women are meant to be but does not say it is a sin to be gay. Also in todays government should not ban gay marriage because it is a sin. That violates the constitution of separation of church and state.

  • You can't help who you fall in love with!

    If you are talking with the respective of the bible, then yes of course it is. But, in my personal point of view and agreeing with nickyrey95 if God believed it was an absolute sin he wouldn't of made us to be attracted to the same sex. After all God did supposedly make us. If you are homosexual, it is and should be fine. People need to learn that you can't help who you happen to fall in love with. You never know you one day might find the love of your life which is the same sex as you. It should be world widely accepted.

  • Yes, condemned by many of the major religions in the world

    Starting with Islam, there are verses in the Koran that condemn homosexuality as a sin. For example, the story of Lut shows two men having an homoerotic affair getting banished by god. In Christianity, New Testament Roman I condemns this action by saying that homoerotic attractions are vile attractions. Buddhism condemns this act as a sin because it arises as a kharmic consequence to the sexual advances of the person in his last life.

  • Not at all.

    Most people of faith believe that their God is all knowing, all powerful and created all of existence. If that is the case then it is also true that God created homosexual people, also in his own image, and loves them just as much as "he" loves anyone else. Homosexual people can be just as wonderful or horrible as anyone else and there is no inherit "sin" in sexual orientation. If there were a biblical god then "he" would love all people completely equally, accept them all into "his" kingdom and heal all their wounds. Hate and discrimination is an invention of men, not god. If your faith promotes hate or inequality toward anyone then it isn't a very good one.

  • To be homosexual is not a sin !

    If "God" truly believed it were, then he would have never allowed for people of the same sex to be attracted to one another. The bible has no credibility because although it is "the book of God", GOD DIDN'T WRITE IT! The book is manmade based on what they "believed" was the word of God. To be homosexual isn't something dangerous, they are not harming themselves or another individual. They serve the same right on this planet as any other individual. It is not a sin.

  • No I do not think homosexual is a sin.

    Being homosexual is not a sin because its about what and who you like its okay to be gay lesbian and homosexual don't let other people tell you that its wrong to be homosexual because its not. This is my argument about being homosexual don't care what other people think just be you.

Oh, I forgot to add homosexuality usually stems from criminal characteristics as most people who are homosexuals tend to be in jail. Even plenty of those "hetrosexuals" in jail that are in the closet.
zmikecuber says2014-02-19T14:52:39.313
What does "being homosexual" mean? Being attracted to the same gender, or having sex with them? This is stupid. It's too ambiguous.
Haroush says2014-02-19T15:00:25.860
This is not ambiguous. Being homosexual is both having sex with them and being attracted to the same sex as if you have lusted for someone of the same sex in your heart, you already had sex with them.
zmikecuber says2014-02-19T15:02:18.977
Being attracted to someone and lusting after them is not the same thing. Lusting is an act of the will, while sexual attraction is a physical/psychological thing.

The thing is that I don't think there's anything immoral with being sexually attracted to the same gender.... But then I do think it's immoral to have sex with them, or lust after them. So I can't vote on this either way, since it doesn't say.
Haroush says2014-02-19T15:04:33.370
Look at all these women and men out there acting as if they are hetrosexuals, but are in the closet even though they have been married as a hetrosexual for years. It's disturbing and disgusting. I feel bad for those men and women who think they have found a true love then ten years down the road they have find out they were secretly gay the entire time.
Haroush says2014-02-19T15:06:37.067
Matthew 5:28

But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Sorry you are wrong.
Haroush says2014-02-19T15:08:17.030
That statement can go vice versa or refer to someone who lusts after someone of the same sex.
Haroush says2014-02-19T15:10:42.247
Lusting in sexual terms means physical attraction for another.
zmikecuber says2014-02-19T15:13:29.307
"lustful intent" Intent is key. Intent is an act of the will. Like the latin word "intendere" which means "to point at." That's essentially what your will is... You point yourself at something.
Haroush says2014-02-19T15:15:49.647
Yeah and when you are physically attracted to someone, you are lusting for them.
zmikecuber says2014-02-19T15:20:01.853
No you're not. You can be physically attracted to someone, and subconsciously your body desires to copulate with them, and then you make an act of the will not to deliberately chose that. Desires of the flesh aren't acts of the will...
zmikecuber says2014-02-19T15:20:29.357
If I were to be attracted towards someone, and then start going "yeah yeah, get me some more of dat!" that would obviously be lust.
Haroush says2014-02-19T15:32:09.643
If you are already attracted you have already lusted for them.

Matching Quote
"Sexual attraction pairs people, but does not match them."
-Mason Cooley

sexual attraction

attractiveness on the basis of sexual desire

Leviticus 20:13

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

And if we go according to what Christ said then just by looking at another man in sexual attraction is already committing adultery with them. Therefore, by law, that is what should happen to you. Thank Christ he have us forgiveness and many chances to turn away from sin. Though the way things are going right now, it doesn't seem like there is much time for people. Just saying.
zmikecuber says2014-02-19T16:05:37.803
Lol, no, lust is an act of the will. Sin is always an act of the will, and nothing else.

This is just a semantics game really. I'm saying that if through no fault of your own, and not through your deliberate choice, you are sexually attracted to someone, that doesn't mean you've lusted after them. Desires and passions per se aren't immoral, it's what you do with them.
zmikecuber says2014-02-19T16:07:15.613
I'm not just thinking off the top of my head either, this is pretty much the teaching of the Catholic Church and alot of Christians. It's fine if you disagree of course.
Haroush says2014-02-19T18:56:43.617
Yes, I vehemently disagree with you.
BlackOpal97 says2015-06-27T10:48:39.763
Yes, If you truly believe in god's word
