Religion and the LGBTQ community.

Postby Celledora » Wed May 23, 2018 1:10 pm

There are many religions that are homophobic and transphobic towards members of the LGBTQ community saying that 'it's not god's will.' to them I say, 'was it's god's will for you to be hateful towards a large section of the human race?' God doesn't hate anyone, that's like, his thing.
I think that it's horrible that some people are so hateful.
what are your thoughts on this?

Is this coming off the back of Pope Francis saying that homosexuality is indeed God's will?

Homosexuality is sinful, but it is something that should be dealt with pastorally, in private between priest and parishioner, and there shouldn't be shame in admitting to such inclinations.

I consider myself a very devout and religious person but I have no problem with homosexuality. I'm bisexual myself and my faith has no strict prohibitions on homosexuality like the Abrahamic religions.

I say no. I am a member of the LGBTQ community and I find it extremely rude that people are being consistently homophobic.

You are correct to say that God does not hate anyone. But he certainly disapproves of certain actions, and that is where the theological debate comes into the picture.

Homosexuality isn't a choice. Lying is.

Homophobia is a big problem in religion, though its dying down as information spreads and people more and more become aware that homosexuality is not sinful or a choice, just a normal sexual orientation that harms no one. I know of a couple of churches which accept gay people, which gives me hope.

Lying is a voluntary action. Homosexuality is a form of sexual identity coming from genetics. That is a terrible analogy. Your point is moot.

Lying is absolutely a choice, but the weight of scientific evidence makes it crystal-clear that homosexuality is biological and innate, if you consider homosexuality sinful you are hating an entire section of the population who were born exactly that way

Lying is a voluntary action. Homosexuality is a form of sexual identity coming from genetics. That is a terrible analogy. Your point is moot.

Not really. Homosexual acts such as dating, gay marriage, or gay sex are entirely voluntary. And that is sinful. Homosexual inclinations, as in simply being attracted to the same sex is not a sin as long as you are not acting upon it.

Aye. My sister-in-law's Methodist church has 4 gay members and they're treated pretty well. It's just a few of the older congregation who try their shit.
