Just wondering, because a lot of Christians are wishy washy on this.

Now don't take this as me hinting I am gay, I am straight as a line, but a lot of Christians are divided on this.

I personally don't believe homosexuals CHOOSE their sexual orientation. I think they are born that way, as who wants to choose to be not tolerated, discriminated against, etc.?

I think the Roman Catholics recognize this and promote celibacy for gays.

But then their is the case is it a sin for gays to think about it (not actually doing it), but that gets into an entire different issue of is it a sin to think about sinning.

Its a tricky issue among Christians, whats your view?

I personally believe if you don't choose it, and their is no free will to it, it cannot be a sin...

It's actually a pretty cut and dried issue with any Christians I know and Craigs post just about sums it up!

I guess I have to be Liberal on this issue...

You really think people choose to be gay?

If I remember correctly interracial relationships were "unchristian" too.

You don't have to be, you could study the Bible and base your ideas on what it says.
Rom. 1:26-27: " 26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

Of coarse they do and more young people are getting involved with this lifestyle these days not because they are born that way but because they have been conditioned to believe it's normal.

Not the same thing. Not based on scripture but on human prejudices.

It's not something I would ever do, but I have no moral objections to homosexuality whatsoever.

Same with me. It is not a choice. There is so much research and evidence out there that shows that homosexuality occurs in the womb most of the time.
Look at the animal kingdom. It occurs in over 250 different species of animals.

Is it a sin yes, but so is judging them because of their sexual preference.

I can't imagine how "homosexuality" could be a sin. How could having a disordered attraction be sinful? The poll question doesn't make sense, and is unanswerable from a Christian perspective.

It would be entirely different if we were discussing homosexual acts.

Sodomy - what a nasty subject - it's usually associated with gay men - yet - these days lots of men do that to women and -conversely it's unfair to generalize that all gay men do it - I recall hearing Dr. Ruth discuss on her old radio show at least 17 years ago - it was a gross discussion she had with the caller - she was saying that it's perfectly acceptable - only be sure not to contaminate the womans privates with stool from the noted behavior. Disgusting to say the least.

In Leviticus 20.13 God says that this act is an abomination. Of course one should be able to surmise why...

You could make the same bible argument when it comes to oral sex and even masturbation.
According to the bible, the only place to put a penis is inside a woman for the purpose of procreation. All other sex acts, including sex using condoms could be considered sinful.

Sounds like you just quoted the Catholic position! Every sexual act must be procreative in intent.
