And that's unfortunate.
Since no gods are actually speaking to us, and since no evidence shows that any gods ever have, sin is nothing more than the invention of ancient human's imagination; the same ancient humans that believed animals could talk and witches could fly.
Today if anyone says that animals can talk or that witches can fly, we vigorously encourage them to seek serious psychotherapy. But for some reason we still hang onto this "sin" idea as if it's still valid and real.
Homosexuality is not a sin for the simple fact that sin only exists in our imaginations. It's not a real thing. It was a concept invented thousands of years ago as a way to control the population.
In order to grow our intelligence and become a more civilized world, we need to challenge our thoughts and beliefs and ask a lot of questions before we automatically accept something as fact.
