in return, perhaps you could help us understand how one arrives at the conclusion that being homosexual is fine, but having homosexual sex is not, thus gay people should remain celibate.
When Jesus spoke about lust in Matthew 5:28, he said that looking lustfully at someone was the same as committing the act. In that sense, it doesn't really matter if a gay person remains celibate because their thought life, or what's in their heart, is just as bad as committing the physical act.
Does God create entire classes of people that are restricted from enjoying the full experience of being human, including sexuality? Is God sitting up there saying "I know! I'll make a whole group of people with sexual attractions to members of the same sex, THEN I'll tell them they aren't allowed to have sex." ????
If we say that a homosexual orientation is naturally occurring and thus not better or worse than being heterosexual, how can we say that acting on one's homosexuality in a physical way is wrong when we do not say the same thing about heterosexual sex?
