Isn't it all about sex for you gays and lesbians?




No, being gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual isn't all about sex. Being GLBT is an innate orientation, almost never a choice made by the individual. Being gay and lesbian is about emotional and psychological and physical and romantic and spiritual attraction to the same sex.

Why don't you believe
what Jesus said?

Jesus' clear statement in Matthew 19:12, about born eunuchs, is an ancient way of describing gay, lesbian and transgender men and women. Jesus makes a point of including "the other," people outside common sexual norms. Same sex attracted eunuchs were a recognized group thousands of years ago.

Even anti-gay Pittsburgh Theological Seminary professor Dr. Robert Gagnon, the leading anti-gay evangelical author and speaker, admits this ancient truth about eunuchs.
"Probably "born eunuchs" in the ancient world did include people homosexually inclined, which incidentally puts to the lie the oft-repeated claim that the ancient world could not even conceive of persons that were congenitally influenced toward exclusive same-sex attractions." - Dr. Rob Gagnon
With few exceptions, being gay or lesbian is not the result of individual choice. It's an innate orientation, as normal as left-handedness and heterosexuality or blond hair and blue eyes. Gay partnerships are not just about sex any more than het partnerships are just about sex. If you think being gay is just about sex, you need to consider whether you have an unhealthy obsession with other people's sexuality.

Intimate relationships, whether we call them marriage or a committed partnership (since gay marriage is illegal in many places), are about emotional and romantic attachment. They are about emotional, spiritual and psychological support. They are about companionship with someone who matches one's sexual orientation.

Sex-Crazed
Heterosexual Singles


Did you read the August 31, 2009, Christianity Today, article about single heterosexuals and sex. Here's a brief quote.
"Indeed, over 90 percent of American adults experience sexual intercourse before marrying. The percentage of evangelicals who do so is not much lower.

In a nationally representative study of young adults, just under 80 percent of unmarried, church going, conservative Protestants who are currently dating someone are having sex of some sort."
Did you get that? 79 out of 100 unmarried conservative heterosexual Christians admitted in survey answers that they are having sex without being married. With sex lives that active, how do you straight folks find time to criticize the gay community?

Sex-Crazed
Heterosexual Teachers


Lately there are hundreds of sex-obsessed female heterosexual teachers in the United States being arrested for illegal heterosexual sex with students. The law in many cases calls their sexual predations rape. Here is the mind numbing list of these sad heterosexual predators.

Porn-Crazed
Heterosexual Men


Don't take my word for it, take Chuck Swindoll's word. Chuck is Chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary and Senior Pastor of Stonebriar Community Church. One of America's foremost conservative evangelicals, Chuck warned about the porn epidemic in conservative evangelical churches.

You know how straight christians love to make caustic comments about gays and lesbians. Yet according to Swindoll's Open Letter to the Church, 50% of the people in evangelical churches including ministers deacons and elders, have a serious porn problem. Swindoll writes:
"An Open Letter Concerning the #1 Secret Problem In Your Church... 1 out of every 2 people-that's 50% of the people sitting in our pews, are looking at and/or could be addicted to Internet pornography.

Stop and imagine the ugly but very real possibility of some of your own elders and deacons leaving your meetings and going home to surf porn. Think about youth leaders viewing it one minute, and leading a small group with your kids thirty minutes later. It's ruining marriages, destroying relationships, harming youth, and hurting the body of Christ." - Pastor Chuck Swindoll
I'll give you a minute to let that sink in. The folks who think being gay is the most terrible thing on earth are sex-crazed and porn-mad, yet their pastors preach against gays more than against sexual sins in their own congregations.

Porn-Crazed
Roman Catholic Bishops


German Catholic Bishops as of Oct 31, 2011, are 100% owners of WELTBILD, one Germany's most profitable book companies. In addition to their many religious titles, they also peddle 2500 erotica and porn titles, many of which are gay erotica and porn, according to published reports from Catholic sources. This from ostensibly heterosexual Bishops and the RC Church which views being gay as "intrinsically disordered." Their heterosexual hypocrisy is salaciously surreal.

Abortion-Crazed
Heterosexual Women


According to an August 2011 survey by the Guttmacher Institute, 65% of women who get abortions in the USA self-identify as Protestant (37%) and Catholic (28%). Did that penetrate your brain? Two thirds of the women getting abortions in the United States are Protestant or Catholic and both groups view themselves as Christian.

Who in the world keeps getting these women pregnant, other heterosexual Protestants and Catholics? Not to belabor a point but transgendered people, gay men and lesbians are not getting these women pregnant. And by the way, are their christian boyfriends paying for their abortions? You folks keep telling us gays are destroying marriage and the family. Really, you're blaming us?

Given these dramatic almost unbelievable sexual sins among sex-obsessed heterosexual christians, one cannot help but wonder why their pastors are not preaching on the heterosexual sin epidemic in their congregations.

Why are gays and lesbians
their favorite hobby horse?

  1. Because they are classic bigots. Hard preaching against lesbians and gays cultivates an "us against them" mentality in their congregation. It unifies their sheeple against the one group it's still okay to loathe and despise.

  2. Because they really really love money. Preaching against those horrible homosexuals helps them raise money and in their jaundiced thinking, the more money they raise, the more God must be blessing their "ministry." And they'll even peddle porn to make money for their churches.

  3. Because they lack moral courage. If they preached against the sexual sins of their own sex-crazed pew-warmers, they'd lose most of their congregation.

  4. Because they're too lazy to study the Bible. If they studied the Bible in context as God commands them to do, 2 Timothy 2:15, and preached God's truth as it is in Jesus, they would have to toss out all their anti-gay sermons, all their anti-gay jokes, all their "witty" off-hand anti-gay remarks.

  5. When 79 out of a hundred of their unmarried christian young people are having sex outside of marriage,

  6. When 50 out of a hundred of their christian men are hooked on porn,

  7. When some of their christian female school teachers are sexually seducing underage boys,

  8. When 65% of the abortion procedures done in the Unites States involve their christian mothers and daughters,

  9. When their christian Sunday School teachers, church workers, deacons, elders and pastors keep getting divorced and remarried,

  10. When they're 100% owners of erotica and porn peddling companies, like the Roman Catholic Bishops of Germany,

  11. No wonder they want to divert attention from their porn-pandering, sin-filled lives. Isn't it about time these christians started addressing the tsunami of sexual sin in their own group? One cannot help wondering:

Isn't it all about sex
for you heterosexuals?"


I challenge you to
take the Good Person test


What does a gay Christian
think about pornography?


Why would a preacher constantly
make anti-gay remarks?


Does the Bible say anything about
watching gay sex online?

important civil right

Great response, Rick. You nailed it.

by: Pat

Jesus in Matthew 19 is declaring that not everyone can participate in the blessings of marriage as constituted by God. Marriage is not for everyone but this does not make one less significant or less fulfilled. This included Jesus himself.

Therefore, isn't this all about having sex? Isn't sex the summum bonum (the highest good) in our idolatrous culture?

Clearly this is an issue with heterosexuals too as nearly 50% of church members are divorced. It is my belief that Christians should not be about imposing God's laws on others in regards to same sex civil unions.

But please stop trying to justify practicing homosexuality as being acceptable when the real desire is to worship the the god of sexual pleasure.

Oct 06, 2009
Pat only speaks for Pat
by: Rick

Pat-

Your condemnation of homosexuals is unkind and way off the beam. You don't view heterosexual partnerships as being "all about worshiping the god of sexual pleasure" so why view gay couples that way?

It sounds like you've never met loving, committed gay and lesbian couples. Our committed partnerships are about far more than sex.

I hope you will take the time to educate yourself beyond the incorrect views you currently hold.

Misunderstanding Pat
by: Gene

Rick, You have clearly misunderstood Pat's question and comments. Sex and marriage are not the same thing.

Sex is only to be practiced within the covenant of marriage. And marriage does not make one less fulfilled as Jesus knew himself. Therefore, neither does sex.

One with homosexual inclinations does not need to act upon it just as a heterosexual outside of marriage should either. Those with homosexual inclinations are not to ACT on their sexual desires.

The only way to get around all of this is to say that homosexuals can marry. But this is NOT what God's intention for marriage is. Homosexuals are not in God's intention of marriage and therefore are called to a life of celibacy.

It IS NOT A CURSE as Pat is stating because marriage (and therefore sex) does not define fulfillment. However our culture that makes sex the "summa bonum", has convinced us THAT A LIFE OF NOT HAVING SEX IS UNFULFILLING.

This is clearly not true as is the case for Jesus and the enochs and homosexuals who have not acted upon the lie of the culture. Also, I would like to comment on your unfair condemnation of Pat.

His/her disagreement does not mean he/she is condemning. Jesus could disagree and still love just as we can too. He clearly loved the adultress who was being stoned but told her to go and sin no more.

We can indeed love the sinner and hate the sin. I do it every morning when I look in the mirror! God bless..

Oct 14, 2009
Thanks Gene
by: Pat

Thanks Gene. I would certainly never condemn anyone as I'm unqualified and incapable as a sinner myself!! I speak with compassion for the homosexual but also with conviction that it is indeed a sin. But it is no different than any other sin as you affirm with heterosexuals who practice sex outside of marriage. God created sexuality and it is good, but it can be expressed in a broken way. We all can practice sex in broken ways from God's intention. My prayer is that those with homosexual inclinations will know that God created them perfectly, not cursed. I pray that they will know that even though the culture places having sex as the summa bonum that this is indeed a lie. Homosexuals can live the fulfilling life God intends by placing what the culture says is a curse under the blessing of God. A life of celibacy for the homosexual can be a thorn as I believe the great writer Henri Nouwen knew, and yet it also an opportunity to lean on God and depend on God. Blessings to Rick and Gene---

Gene and Pat
by: Rick Brentlinger

To my knowledge, nowhere on this website do I equate sex and marriage. I think you two, while viewing yourselves as speaking the truth in love, have missed the doctrinal mark by a wide margin.

The Bible clearly lays down the principle in 1 Corinthians 7:1-9, that most people need a physical outlet for sex which does not expose them to the moral and spiritual chaos of fornication. Yet I'm sure you would not accuse Paul or God of equating sex and marriage.

I Corinthians 7:1-9 also makes clear that celibacy is a gift from God. It is not something you can impose on every gay and lesbian person. God never gave you that authority and the Bible never asserts that gays and lesbians can never be in a loving, committed, non-cultic same sex marriage.

Concerning marriage, you both seem to read into scripture what scripture never says, that if a marriage is not exactly like the Adam and Eve partnership, then God cannot bless it.

Millions of gays and lesbians down the centuries have learned by experience that God does bless their intimate committed partnerships.

I know that seems impossible to you two yet you accept without question that God blessed Abraham and Sarah and Hagar's polygamous marriage.

You view King David as a type of Christ and yet he had at least six wives whose names are recorded in scripture plus his intimate friendship with Crown Prince Jonathan.

If Abraham and Sarah showed up at your church this Sunday, would you invite them to preach or teach, knowing that they were in a lifelong incestuous marriage PLUS a polygamous marriage?

The point is that God can and does bless marriage partnerships which are outside the Adam and Eve paradigm.

Blessings to you as you walk the path of God's purpose for your lives.

I was just talking about this...
by: Anonymous

Very intriguing article, I must say--I, myself, was just conversing over this subject with my friend, because we support homosexuals but have often heard that they're very sexually active; we never knew how that stereotype came to be.

This is an interesting website, I can tell--I'm tempted to explore farther than this article, alone. This was one of the biggest questions I had about being in a gay relationship, and it's nice to have it answered, so I thank you for posting this and making remarkable, convincing points. :)

We're not all sex-crazed
by: Anonymous

Hey, just stumbled across this site. To the comment about homosexuals being very sexually active....

I'm in a long term lesbian relationship (5 yrs) and it's a totally committed and faithful relationship. Yes, there are people (gay and straight) who are promiscuous and unfaithful but please remember this isn't a problem that?s only in the gay community.

Also TV shows head-hunt nutters who are a poor example of 'homosexuals' (and humanity generally) because they like ratings and everyday normal gay people don't make interesting Television.

Sadly though, people get the impression we're all drug taking sex addicts when the reality is (WHISPERS) most of us are rather boring.

Sex outside of marriage
by: Anonymous

Thanks for bringing up 1 Corinthians 7: 1-9. It makes the point that any sex outside of marriage is not God's intent. Jesus speaks in Matthew 19 that marriage is between a man and a woman. In regards to the polygamist argument, God blesses ALL of us. We are all under God's blessing. Rick is once again playing the judge as Gene and Pat point out about Rick).

The point of all of this is that when we choose to live our way (having sex even in a committed homosexual/lesbian relationship or a committed heterosexual relationship) WE choose to live outside of God's blessing because it is not in marriage as God intended between a man and woman. You clearly know this but are choosing to not hear.

As the great theologian and philosopher Kierkegaard rightly points out:

"The matter is quite simple. The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be able to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly. My God, you will say if I do that my whole life will be ruined. How would I ever get on in the world? Herein lies the real place of Christian scholarship. Christian scholarship is the Church's prodigious invention to defend itself against the Bible, to ensure that we can continue to be good Christians without the Bible coming to close. Oh, priceless scholarship, what would we do without you?

Kierkegaard is speaking to the swindlers who are trying to twist scripture to their benefit. To justify any sex (committed or not) outside of marriage (homosexual or heterosexual) is an act of a scheming swindler. To justify marriage outside of God's intent between a man and woman is also an act of a scheming swindler.

Your life is NOT ruined by remaining celibate!

You accuse me of being a Judge yet you judge us
by: Rick Brentlinger

Celibacy is not something YOU can impose on gays and lesbians. 1 Corinthians 7:1-9 makes it clear that celibacy is a gift from God and most people, gay or non-gay, do NOT have the gift of celibacy.

The Biblical principle, which you choose to ignore, is that its better to be faithfully partnered with someone matching your sexual orientation.

Such partnerships honor God, please God, are blessed by God and fulfill the stated intention, "to avoid fornication."

Its amusing that you read into Matthew 19, that Jesus is prohibiting every marriage that differs from the Adam and Eve paradigm when in verses 11 and 12, Jesus specifically exempts gay people (born eunuchs) from His statement about marriage.

My prayer for you is that other Christians will not treat you with the judgmentalism and lack of grace with which you treat your gay brothers and lesbian sisters.

WAKE UP
by: Anonymous

You all are so blind and deceived by the Devil. can't you do your math here? God does not create people pervert but it a bondage from the devil, so you need to be set free.
I Corinthians 6:9(NIV) - Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB) - "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
Jude 1:6-7 (NASB) - And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

Your comment is incoherent

Speaking of Jude 5-7
by: Rick Brentlinger

To Wake Up:

Since you quoted Jude as if he supports your viewpoint, it might interest you to know that many conservative evangelical Christians agree that Jude is talking about a "sex with angels" problem instead of condemning the men of Sodom for homosexuality.

I quote from evangelicals, including Dr. John MacArthur, about what Jude meant.

Grow UP!
by: Anonymous

I've often found it annoying that people insist that since marriage is a "religious institution" that it should be denied to homosexuals... yet I've never seen anyone out trying to deny marriage to atheists on that same principle.

Especially since, if it's a matter of civil law whether or not people can get married, it has become a civil institution in this nation, and civil law should never be used by religious people to deny civil rights to those who may not share their faith.

Freedom of religion is in the constitution, too! Just because you think it's wrong by your beliefs for two men or two women to marry does not give you the right to enforce that religious belief and therefor enforce civil inequality on a segment of the population who clearly do not share that religious belief.

Civil law should be entirely separate from religious belief for this very reason.

If two men or two women want to get married, let them. My god, maybe it will bring down the divorce statistics!

The gift of homosexuality?
by: Matt

Let's look at the logic of this celibacy question, which is this: how do you know God has called you to a life of celibacy? The answer: You are attracted to the same sex. The gift of celibacy is attraction to the same sex, not a gift of lesser attraction or lesser sexual interest. Tongue in cheek here: the gift of celibacy is the gift of homosexuality :) How much sense does this make?

This makes for a strange God, one who would make someone homosexual (as this idea implies) and use it as that person's indicator they are to not have an intimate relationship.

If this is the indicator (as deduced by piecing together several different ideas and verses), then what to do with celibate heterosexuals? What basis do they have in being celibate? Maybe there's additional criteria...?

Please follow through with this idea. I'd be interested to see what matrix is formed for determining God's will for celibacy.

James chapter 1
by: Terry

James chapter 1 verses 13 through 16 explain what gay sex is all about:
---Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.
---But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed BY HIS OWN LUST.
---Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
---Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.

---Sex that is had outside of God's boundaries is lust. As an example, a man cannot "lust" after his wife because he is within God's boundaries [for sexual relations]. Sex outside of God's boundaries is fueled by lust because one only thinks on his own sexual gratification.
---I Corinthians 7:2-3 tells us what sex is about...it is about giving of oneself to the OTHER person, even when we do not feel like it.

Adison's Version of God's truth
by: Adison Showalter

Matthew 24:4-5 "Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ' and will deceive many."

Matthew 24: 23-25 "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.

I'm not here to say that anyone who has a homosexual orientation will go to hell. As a man that, about a year ago, had a homosexual orientation, I thrived to overcome the orientation. Through God's grace, the orientation has diminished to a mere speck in my heart. My heterosexual attractions have increased dramatically. :) It's an amazing feeling indeed.

From what Mr. Rick has presented, his argument seems to support, ironically, a hateful incentive, lashing out at heterosexuals. While you are correct about anti-gay clergymen having hate in their hearts, their are those that stand up for God's truth with an open mind and an open heart. These men and women CARE and LOVE homosexuals, but they know through the Holy Spirit that the action of homosexuality is wrong. I can see through your hating attitude towards heterosexual that your logic is obviously twisted.

Take note that there are heterosexual sins too. However, we must note God's idea of marriage; Genesis 2:24 states clearly how God intended marriage. "Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."

You point out in one of your arguments that there is no clear indication of God against homosexual marriage; however, there is no clear indication for homosexual marriage as well.

As for Matthew 19: 11-12, it is clearly stated that Jesus is using the definition of a eunuch who is castrated. You mention one example of the usage of the word eunuch, and fail to mention the next two examples; men made eunuchs by other men, and a man who makes himself a eunuch in order to pursue the kingdom of heaven's sake.

This goes against your idea of homosexuality, that it is an orientation that you cannot change. In fact, if you read the entire story, you would know that Jesus is giving three examples as why to not get married, not condoning homosexuality.

I pray that you will open your heart and see what God has in store for you. I will keep you in my prayers. All of you. I pray that you understand that Leviticus 18:22 is meant to protect you, not to keep you in misery. And I pray that you know that you CAN overcome a homosexual orientation. I have! :)

God bless you, and much love to you,

Adison Showalter.

Adison, I feel sorry for you
by: Rick Brentlinger

Adison-

This is the second time you've accused us of hate with absolutely nothing to support your false accusation (your other false accusation of hate is your Comment on the Beastiality page).

The fact that you make such accusations indicates that you have nothing to support your belief system.

If truth supported your belief system, you wouldn't be reduced to making false accusations.

I pray that God will open your eyes to the damage your mean-spirited comments wreak on your gay brothers and lesbian sisters.

This site has done wonders for me
by: Brian Akerly

Thank you, Rick. This site has done wonders for me, and has seriously picked me up. I love to read all of these articles and the comments, partly because I love the discussion. It can actually be cordial sometimes, but mostly how calm and ready you are with coming back and dealing with some of these people.

I read the comment above yours and was thrown through a loop. Not because I was re-thinking myself, but because I couldn't understand where he was coming from, why the shallow ideas and culturally instilled beliefs. But I love how you came back. It's inspiring.

I want to say thank you, because a lot of your comments really help me. Some even make me laugh, which can be even better.

I want to say God Bless and guide you in all of your future travels. And to never let anybody pull you down, no matter how malicious they may be. Remain strong for as all.

With great love, Brian. :)

Hello Brian - thanks for your kind words. It blesses my heart to hear that I have encouraged you. We will keep spreading the word that God does love, call, bless and use His born again gay children. If I can be helpful in your spiritual journey, please let me know.

By the way, have you explored our free downloads of Bible study pdfs yet? We offer more than 330 pages of free Bible studies.

A pastor with eleven churches in his fellowship told me over the weekend that they are using some of our free Bible studies in their new converts classes.

Get your mind out of the gutter
by: Paul R

The problem with people who use the Bible to condemn gay people is their own obsession with sex which they project unto gay people; they are seeing the world through sex tinted lenses.

What they cannot comprehend because of this obsession is that being gay is not about sex, it is about love. The impetus for forming lasting relationships with a person of the same gender is love and not sex, and the power that holds together a relationship with a person of the same gender is love and not sex.

The Human Soul was made to seek, and to find, Love. It is the indomitable Human Soul that perseveres in the ardent quest for its source: no other force can coax it from secrecy; no other power can ordain its destiny. Love is the universally respected language and its pronounced vernacular highlights the similarities between all People and provides consensus for a world-view that unites instead of divides.

At long last it will finally be realized that we are all Brothers and Sisters traveling the same promenade of fate, sharing the same fierce hopes and exquisite dreams that our Founding Fathers envisioned:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all (people) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

near L.A.
by: Roscoe J.

The Christians I talk to view the Castro in San Francisco as the most sinful place on earth - all those gays doing all those wicked things. As I read your answer in this post, it seems like anti-gay churches are building their own sinfully wicked mini-Castros right in their own congregations, only with straight people.

Because they are not gay, they act like their promiscuity and sexual acting out is natural. Their preachers don't even preach about sexual sins in their own congregations, I guess because they are too busy going after gays and lesbians.

So they keep attacking those wicked gays and keep living like hell in their personal lives. I think their hypocrisy must make God really sad.

Comic book mentality vs. Studying to show thyself approved
by: Marc

It is easy to become so focused you miss the point. I feel it would do wonders for those involved in stating their belief to know what the word of God says.

That comes from hours of devoted honest Holy Spirit led searching the Word of God. Many Christians just accept what's said from the pulpit, without actually doing their proper homework.

No wonder people are going to Hell watching such poorly equipped Christians battling the world and each other as well.

We need to stop the comic book approach to the word of God and dig into scripture with love and gusto! There is only one Truth, not many. Many truths which don't agree with each other would be chaos.

We should strive towards Christian perfection or spiritual maturity. That comes from taking joyful time in the word and being true ambassadors for Christ - rightly dividing the word of truth.

I have spent years studying the GLBT issue, and must state that Rick presents a real, Bible-based, truthful declaration of what the word of God really says.

Please take the time to read this website before becoming too focused on one comment that you disagree with. You will be honoring God when you do and pursuing the love that Christ beckons us to give.

Old Testament
by: Anonymous

This maybe a little off topic but I wonder if the condemnation of homosexuality refered to in the old testiment had more to do with the teaching of same sex relations to minors (pedophilia).

Rick's comment: Interesting question. In the Babylonian Talmud, Jewish rabbis almost two thousand years ago, did link Lev 18:22 to incest, so it is possible that that is part of what God and Moses intended to prohibit.

In a Non Sex, same sex relationship
by: Anonymous

I wanted to add an example for all the heterosexuals out there that think homosexual relationships are all about sex. My partner told me it didn't matter to him if we ever had sex as long as we could be together, love each other and help each other through life. He said this because after a year I am still not clear from God on marrying him. We love each other and very much want to have sex but out of respect for each other and our relationship with God we decided we would not until we were married or in a committed relationship before God and community.

How many of you heterosexuals that are dating and in love can say that? By the way we are both still young, attractive and healthy. We also don't view porn, go to bars, take drugs and he doesn't drink. We love God, pray together, go to church together and strive to live a life of service to others. To God be the glory.

Weltbild still selling erotica
by: ralphm

Just a small update on the Weltbild-case from Germany that you mention in this article. The catholic church wanted to sell Weltbild after this was covered in the media (meaning the erotic literture), but either they could not or finally decided against it.

It is still owned by them, but they recently removed almost all books from a certain publishing house (Icon Empire Press) that also publishes gay erotica. But of course they kept hetero bestsellers like "Fifty Shades of Grey". Well, there's some hope: they also still sell the german book "Streitfall Liebe" by Valeria Hinck that deals with being gay *and* christian and shares a lot of views with gaychristian101.

Same-Sex Marriages Were Indeed ACCEPTABLE

Some of you seem to miss the point entirely that in the earlier days of Christianity same-sex marriage was indeed a CHRISTIAN rite. A highly credited, very learned professor and Chairman of a university department has spoken to this matter in a very eloquent, informed manner. However, since prejudice, intolerance, and condemnation continues today by those who are uninformed about this matter, it is easy to try to disregard what was acceptable at one time and is becoming fully acceptable once again through an unprejudiced court system nationwide that obviously sees and fully understands that same-sex oriented individuals do not hurt or pose any harm to opposite-sex oriented individuals, one iota, thus are finally bringing parity to this matter to be in line with that of their heterosexual counterparts, thanks be to God. Please read to understand this matter further. Thank you.
