Where the Church Goes Wrong with Homosexuality

While homosexuality is a sin, it is also a sin to bar people who need help from the Church. Christians need to understand homosexuality. Homosexuals are just like any other sinners -- they are people. They are, in many ways, just like all other people -- they are sinners.
The Church universal has not dealt with homosexuality properly. Instead of shunning them, the Church needs to tell them the truth -- there is a way out, and God can forgive them if they will repent. We cannot tell them this if we never talk to them.
We all deal with sins, and many have long-term struggles with desires of many kinds -- drug addiction, pornography, beating one's spouse, verbally abusing family members.
The Church must develop relationships with all sinners; they must discipline those who teach false doctrines; they must equip their congregations to talk about these issues.

Why Homosexuality is Wrong

1) The Bible strictly forbids it. Only modern "scholars" can wrongly perceive and wrongly intrepret such passages. It's clear -- the Judeo-Christian Scriptures do not provide for homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle, or another valid brand of sexuality.
2) If we all lived out homosexual lives, the earth would be empty of humans in one generation.
3) It is an aberration of marriage and family, which God defined in Genesis as one man and one woman.
4) It does not provide a stable home for children.
5) As an aberration, it goes beyond just homosexuality. It opens wide the doors for men to define marriage, so that bestiality, groups, incest and molestation will become "normal."
6) Just because some animals are attracted to the same sex of their species does not make it natural for humans. By that logic, we should be able to eat our babies and rape, among other things. Along with this, such acts would be decriminalized since animals are not punished for them.

The Importance of Guns

"No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is the last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
Thomas Jefferson
