If God intended for homosexual relationships to exist, would this not be seen in all forms of life, i.e. animals?

God made human beings as the crowning jewel of His creation. We are not highly evolved animals. We possess a spiritual dimension because we are made in God’s image as a separate and special creation.
God gave us dominion over the animal kingdom but we are not part of the animal kingdom, Genesis 1:28.
The Bible asserts human exceptionalism, that we are separate from, different than and elevated above the animals, without being evolved from the animals.
Therefore it makes no sense to argue, as your question implies, that if animals are not homosexual, then humans should not be homosexual.
There are many hundreds of animals who exhibit homosexual behavior but as human beings, we do not derive authority for our sexual orientation from animals.We've discussed homosexuality and animals. Click here to return to Gay Christian 101 Home Page.
