It's tragic when people yield to disordered sexual temptations that can literally kill them spiritually, emotionally and physically.

problem lies in the fact that far too many Christians have
contributed to the dilemma by failing to speak truth, in love, on the
homosexuality (pastors with "gay" congregants and family members, I'm
talking to you). Nobody likes to be unfairly labeled a hater,
"homophobe" or bigot, but fear of such attacks offers no
justification for failing to speak truth in love. There are even
Christians today who inexcusably join in with the secular-left in
homosexual sin as a good thing. There's a word for these types: apostate.
Evolution requires survival and reproduction
There's no wiggle room here. If you defend or seek to justify homosexual conduct, you defy God. Not good. As I recall, He's got a little something to say about "causing one of these little ones" to sin.
But even if you choose not to acknowledge biblical truth, you're still left without excuse. As the CDC has once again verified, if you affirm or defend homosexual behavior as "normal, natural and good," you also defy science. You're on the wrong side of history, let alone reality.
What is it about this particular PC-protected practice that causes so many otherwise intelligent people to become blinded blathering buffoons?
Let's say we had a group of people who defined their identity based upon a penchant for running headlong into brick walls. Oh, we'll call them, "Wallies." (Wally pride, baby!)
As significant percentages of Wallies began to drop dead, or suffer irreversible brain damage, do you suppose the left would demand tolerance for such behavior? Do you think they'd begin handing out bicycle helmets in elementary schools, telling kids to practice safe walling? With liberals, anything's possible, but I'm more inclined to think that even the moonbat left might agree that people tending toward such behavior would be best served to simply avoid running headlong into walls altogether.
I don't mean to be flip (okay, maybe a little flip) but can someone please tell me why on earth the left insists that we "tolerate" homosexual behavior while – as the CDC has once again confirmed – it continues to have results similar to brick walling?
We throw paper-thin latex condoms at kids who struggle with same-sex attraction and tell them: "You're gay! Embrace who you are. Gay pride, baby!"
We push them out onto a paper-thin latex tightrope with a one-in-five chance they'll plummet to their death.
What in the name of all things sacred are we doing? One-in-five with AIDS? Seriously? If five people got into a car and were told that one of them wasn't going to survive the drive, how quickly do you suppose they'd scatter?
behaviors beget natural consequences. Scripture admonishes:
"For the wages of sin is death, but
the free gift of God is eternal life
in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23.
Where there's a will, there's a Way
Do you consider yourself "gay" or lesbian? As untold thousands of ex-gays will tell you, you don't have to be. It's my most sincere prayer that going forward you'll choose Christ over sin: Life over death.
You think sexual "freedom" makes you happy? You should experience the true freedom that comes through abiding in He who is "the way, the truth and the life."
