This is a funny point. If you accept Sin is natural and homosexuality is sin then by extension homosexuality is natural. I dont believe any of those 3 points however and get MY morals not from an invisable sky daddy but from what will make the world i live in better or worse. Hating minority groups won't help.

Wtf dude? I support gay rights 100%. Thus my last line "hating minority groups won't make the world any better". I don't know how you could possibly mistake my position. I just think this debate is interesting because it points out a hilarious line of logic contradicting religious teachings and claims about homosexuality.

i think it may be the poor wording of the question in general that has is causing everyone to misinterpret eachothers positions.
however on the point of whether homosexuality is natural i think we can firmly suggest it shows more signs of being natural than unnatural. Knowing that every species in the world can be drawn to homosexuality or heterosexuality or both is proof enough that it is natural in the sense that homosexuality is not caused by any phychological or human influences, as isnt heterosexuality or bisexuality, all these have existed for times we cant trace back though evidence and rediction would imply even dinosaurs enjoyed a bit of broke back mountain D:

If your basis for believing something is science then you'll never make it in God's mystery world. Science is only suppose to observe the world but it has taken a dogmatic approach. It has a systematic role to change everything! To become the new religion. It is the sad foundation of the modern civilazation. I'm thankful it's not that way in the older cultures where they still have values!
Yes i Love the Lord and choose the Lord but i leave you this word and hope you learn that Faith is greater then Facts!!!!!! Facts can be manipulated, are manipulated but faith can't!

Sin a a Greek word, an archery term, it means to miss the mark. I was not born into so called "original" sin, not do i sin. I am not perfect and commit errors, do wrong and at times, even hurt people with my actions , but I do not sin

In a religous sense sin is a natural thing for humans in a lot of cases, adultery is fun and if nobody told us it was wrong, a lot of us would still do it. Like the romans did. Some religous people say homosexuallity is a sin some don't. I don't care if it is or not, if people wan to be homosexual then that's fine. But is it natural? Well, if someone wants to do it then it's natural for them. Human nature isn't one thing but instead 7 billlion seperate things. So what's natural for me might not be natural for a homosexual. For humans to continue to exist as part of nature some of them must procreate, but for every population of species there is a balance so this seems fine to me.

If you propogate dislike against homosexuals, how then will you justify that it will make the world "better"?

Furthermore, why is homosexuality not natural? The way the brain functions is such that we cannot hope to completely understand it at this moment. If homosexuality cannot be considered normal, then you shouldn't consider the covenant of a man and woman as normal as well because your definition of normal is based upon something that you cannot hope to know. Right now, we know that men and women are sexually attracted to each other is because of the pheromones released by our bodies. Can you be so bold to claim that there isn't a legitimate scientific explanation now or in the future to justify homosexuality as natural? The burden of proof falls on the person who makes the claims.
