The "Lookie what the Catholics are doing" topic got me to thinking about this.... First off, I never read the Bible but have always respected it. I feel that I'm religious, but in truth....I'm sure I don't qualify as a good Christian. Second, the little that I know about religion came from some "Bible thumpers" in my family which would most likely be classified as "conservative Christians." As a young lass, I was pretty naive and always thought that if a person was homosexual, they didn't believe in God or the teachings of the Bible. I had heard that the Bible teaches man that it was wrong to lie with another man. (referring to Leviticus 18:22 (KJV): "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind it is abomination.") So I guess the question that I wonder is how do you get around this? I know that some have different interpretations of the Bible and that conservative Christians interpret it more strictly than liberal Christians, but I guess I am looking for more than just that. One website I found that tried to address this issue claims that people are not born homosexual. And that "People become homosexuals because they yield to abnormal acts or lust." I personally disagree with that and I base this on a family that I know very closely. Of 5 boys born to them, 3 were gay. And the younger one was born to a different mother and raised differently than the older two. I feel that's a pretty strong argument for nature vs. nurture, nature winning that one. I want to also state that in no way am I trying to say that homosexulity is wrong, nor am I trying to offend anyone.
