A functional productive relationship of consent, 1st -contains no malice, and 2nd -generates Love.
Like Daniel said, homosexuality is no more an emotion than heterosexuality is. I think many people who equate homosexuality to an emotion or a perversion do so through, kind of like what you said, -the eyes of what they don’t understand.
Pride and fear of death have a lot to do with the idea of Biblical inerrancy. I think the reason the homosexual thing bothers them so is that there is so much empirical evidence that says otherwise (born that way, immutable etc.), in addition to the millions of eye witness testimony of people like us. That’s why they have to paint us in every negative categorical light possible. Granted, if same sex attraction caused evil, it would be a legitimate concern. But even if same sex attraction was caused by
evil, same sex attraction itself does not cause
evil. It’s an important distinction.
Essentially it creeps them out that they don’t know what to do with us, if they’re wrong about us they might be wrong about salvation, and therefore might not be “safe,” from hell, or worse, eternal extinction.
The negative emotions you listed are not
natural in the spirit of Love. So the question is, what is your motive, to harm or to Love? If God is Love, then a relationship based on sharing Love, is
of God. Not
of anger, jealousy, greed etc.
Not to minimize the very real perception of confusion and evil, but whose in charge of the universe? The idea of eternal hell or eternal extinction, or the reality of a God of Love who only allows for all
As long as gay marriage is illegal, they can say homosexuals are promiscuous. As long as we’re denied True Love in our lives, they can say homosexuality causes alcoholism and suicide. Point being, in order to protect their own salvation, they need for homosexuality to be a sin.
This is about your understanding of your relationship with God, and NOT their misunderstanding of your
relationship with God. Do you understand?
