  • If there is a God he didn't, we did by abusing our bodies by manufacturing and consuming unhealthy products, screwed ourselves genetically.
    • mushroom
      Surely, we have studied many "primitive" tribes who have had limited access to our manufactured products, and homosexuality is present there as well.
  • Well maybe he wanted to test our faith through our reactions to these people. They are after all in the image of God. it is a challenge. They are people just like you and me. maybe in all of us there lies a bit of homosexuality.
  • to curb the rising population
  • The structure of your question begins from the assumption that God created homosexuals. I disagree with the notion that He did. I think buzz123456 came the closest among the first three responses here to an accurate response. Problems like that are not the result of the works of God but of the downfall of man.
  • So we could love them?
    • Fclover1
      Yes!
  • I believe that the devil created homosexuals. I know that God created man and woman to become one, He did not create two men to become one, or two women to become one. I have nothing against homosexuals, after all God created them-but not to be homosexuals. I will not help promote their immoral life style. In His grasp, <:))))<><

      Wow, talk about seeing what you wish was there instead of the truth!!! They were friends and teammates, soldiers.
    • Rick
      It is always taken wrong the in the Bible there is no place does it say it is a sin to be a homosexual. But the Bible speaks against the lifestyle.
  • I think it's more on human society that caused homosexuality to exist.
    • newyorknewyork
      But there are gay animals. Blame a f'd up society for that too?
    • mushroom
      The Clown fish and the Wrasse both change sex and are fertile under certain conditions.
  • I believe God created 'life'. Good, bad, deviant, or merely variant, there is no doubt that it's taken billions of years to evolve into all that we are today.
  • ...because he created humans, and homosexuals are in fact, humans?
  • Your assuming that homosexuality was created by God? The subject of homosexuality has become a sticking point for alot of people... God created People & this planet... BUT God created sex to give life to both man & Beast... Decisions to become homosexual come from lust... or thoughts that are meant to decieve & to bring the sufferer into sexual situtations he or she wasn't meant to practice...
    • Fclover1
      So what about being with an infertile woman, is that against god's views because she can't reproduce?
    • Linda Joy
      There are several examples in the Bible about this. Did you not read those stories? Did they not support your narrative?
  • So we'd have better hair stylists, clothes designers, and interior decorators. Not to mention backup dancers. :-)
  • God did not create them. People have free will.
    • Fclover1
      But he did in fact create the same idea of it, yes we invented the steam engine but it couldn't have been created without the help of god
  • People are homosexuals because they were born that way. It's nothing to do with God.
  • The Bible condemns sexual activity that is not between a husband and wife, whether it is homosexual or heterosexual conduct. Rather than focus on the cause of homosexual desires, however, the Bible prohibits homosexual acts. (1 Cor 6:9,10) While the Bible disapproves of homosexual acts, it does not condone hatred of homosexuals or homophobia. Instead, Christians are directed to
    • dickw60
      You have no idea what 1 Cor. 6:9,10 are saying! you have never studied it and in no way does it mean homosexuality. This is what happens when someone listens to repeated lies so long they believe it to be true. Learn what it says in the Bible in the terminology of the times it was written and not as believed today.
    • Tom Jackson
      Well, what does 1 Cor. 6:9,10 actually say?
    • dickw60
      This cannot be answered in a few words here. I would suggest you go to Amazon Books and order a copy of "God Is Not Homophobe An Unbiased Look at Homosexuality in the Bible" by Darwin Chandler (pin name: Philo Thelos) Basically it is dealing with cult temple prostitutes a common practice at that time. I think you would find this book quite interesting. I would suggest you read Royal Law of Liberty first as it will give you a good understanding of what Chandler is teaching. If you look hard enough on Google you can find these books on line for free. It took me over a half hour to find them.
    • dickw60
      You could also go to inkaboutit4u. com and learn many things including a piece on homosexuals that includes 1 Cor. 6:9,10 and well explains it.
    • Jewels Vern
      You people quoting 1 Cor 6:9&10 need to read verse 11. The difference is the holy spirit. Those who believe in Jesus receive the holy spirit and are saved. What they did before that doesn't count. Those who don't believe are lost and what they did before that doesn't count.
    • Linda Joy
      "9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." You're wrong Dick! This covers EVERY KIND of fornication including Homosexuality. And Jewels has a very good point!
  • The Lord God as well as Jesus Christ gave us love of other people. They did not divide people into sexual groups, man did. Homosexual people love one another just as heterosexual people love one another. Heterosexuals find homosexuality revolting just as homosexuals find heterosexuals revolting. The base of all is LOVE. It isn't a matter of tolerance it is a matter of loving others as you love yourself. I am heterosexual but I have read and understand the Lord God's teachings on love and now believe homosexuals can love same sex as those heterosexuals whom love opposite sex. If you desire to blame someone then blame love.
    • Jewels Vern
      My bible says God made them male and female and it repeats that several times. You must be getting your material from some other god.
    • Thinker
      No same God, just better teaching and understanding. Yes, He made male and female but He commanded love of everyone and that includes the homosexual as much as the heterosexual.
    • Jewels Vern
      Thinker, you really should not say what you think without thinking. You also should read the bible before you claim it as a source for what you think. The bible expressly forbids a man to lie with another man as with a woman. That act is not love. Jesus defined and explained love in Luke chapter 10, and it does not require taking off your pants.
    • Thinker
      Nowhere in the Bible does it say that adult consensual homosexuality is wrong. It does say not to have pagan worship with homosexual acts as this is an abomination to the Lord God. I think you need to understand what the Bible says and not what some preacher lies about. I have studied on this subject extensively to learn what the Lord God says. I am not homosexual but I at least know what the Lord God says about it, do you?
    • Fclover1
      Are we just gonna dismiss the fact that there was a homosexual couple in the Bible. 1 Samuel 18, "3 Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. 4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was on him and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt." Now don't even try to tell me they are just friends, this is way more clear than the man shall not sleep with a man like they would a woman phrase
    • Linda Joy
      It doesn't say and then they had sex or became one! Or even uncovered his nakedness like it does in the story about Noah's son. You remember the one whose whole lineage was swallowed up into the earth because of his fornicating with his own father? You keep cherry picking the verses you think prove they were homosexual to appease your guilt, but if you read the whole thing you'll get the whole picture. And don't forget David slept with Bathsheba and lost his son for it!! So he wasn't gay.
    • Linda Joy
      Also God did very specifically say exactly whose nakedness one was not allowed to uncover! It starts in Leviticus 18: https://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/lev/18.22?lang=eng
  • God didn't create homosexuals. Notice this verse at Romans 1:24: Therefore, God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, so that their bodies might be dishonored among them."
    • dickw60
      This was speaking of pagan rituals using homosexual acts in their "worship". It also refers to pederasty which was very evolved from that of Lev. 18:22.
  • 1-23-2017 Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning god created the heaven and the earth." Genesis 1:21 "And God created great whales" Genesis 1:26 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness" There are no other records of God creating anything.
  • Not really an answer (I don't have one that would satisfy everyone), but in Perelandra (the second book of his space trilogy), CS Lewis observed that biological life is man's participation in that greater polarity of the universe that is masculine and feminine." Reflection on that statement has provided me various insights on the whole issue of individual sexual orientation.
  • Jehovah God did NOT...He gave us free will...tocxhoose our behavior...and this direction.. .(1 Corinthians 6:9) Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God
  • He didnt. Youre not born gay. Its a decision people make in rebellion against the truth and against God. But theh have the opportunity to repent and be changed
  • Homosexuals are HATED by monotheistic programs such as Christianity - this is because homo-sexualism is not a choice, it is on a soul level, & these programs are used as tools to keep the populace from real spiritual knowledge & the power in the hands of those at the top. Satan is not "evil" as depicted in the Bible, and He and the other Gods (as in the Greek Gods etc) love humanity. The Bible defames them and calls them "demons", and people are told to stay away from them at all costs. Learn the TRUTH: www.joyofsatan.org
    • Linda Joy
      He said he got the idea from reading Satanic literature. Christianity teaches us to love everyone. Apparently he didn't read that part. Of course Satanic literature doesn't teach that.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, I left a comment in this thread, and it is no longer visible. Someone is deleting comments.
  • After the birth, I think our choices made for us by our Parents and our Environment have a role to play with our Sexual orientation until we start making our own choices on this issue. It is a product of our choice and decision making. It’s like, one does not get to be born evil or good, one becomes one by choice.
  • Funny how Bible God condemns gay behavior, but makes guys turned on by lesbian porn.
    • Thinker
      No, the Bible condemns homosexual acts done in pagan worship. The Lord God was telling the Hebrew people not to adopt those practices into their worship of Him. He was also talking about pederasty in relation to prepubescent boys captured in battle. The Lord God is no more opposed to adult consensual homosexuality as He is of adult consensual heterosexuality. I have learned this through much study of the Bible and much reading from many excellent sources.
    • Pr1zm
      "No, the Bible condemns homosexual acts done in pagan worship." Please provide a verse in the bible that states this.
    • Thinker
      If you read and study the whole chapter in Lev. 18 and Romans 1 putting it in the terms, language, and understanding of the days when written and not in the language and understandings we use today you will learn the answer to your question. It takes study and research not just a cursive reading.
    • Pr1zm
      Not good enough.
    • Linda Joy
      God is the same today, tomorrow and forever! It was a sin then and it still is.
  • He didn't, Not one passage will you find in Scripture saying God created homosexuals, since you seem to base your understanding on religious matters. On the contrary, the role of homosexuals played a part in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
    • mushroom
      The sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was violent rape, not consensual sex. The homosexual aspect of it heightens the shock. When testosterone-induced hazing among men is reported at schools, is it about sex or violent domination?
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Funny how my comments disappeared.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Quote: "The sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was violent rape, not consensual sex." Not the case in Scripture. The Sodomites wanted to have sex with the angels: Genesis 19:5 "They shouted to Lot, Where are the men who came to spend the night with you? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!"
  • He didn't. He warned it was a sin. He even gave examples of how he dealt with them. Here are some key references if you care to know what The Bible actually says: "Bring them out unto us, that we may know them, Gen. 19: 1-11 (Moses 5: 51-53). Thou shalt not lie with mankind; it is an abomination, Lev. 18: 22 (Lev. 20: 13). There shall be no sodomite of the sons of Israel, Deut. 23: 17. They declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not, Isa. 3: 9 (2 Ne. 13: 9). Men burned in their lust one toward another, Rom. 1: 27. Abusers of themselves with mankind will not inherit the kingdom of God, 1 Cor. 6: 9-10. The law is not made for a righteous man, but for them that defile themselves with mankind, 1 Tim. 1: 9-10. Those who go after strange flesh are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire, Jude 1: 7." We are not commanded to tolerate the sin! We are commanded to love the sinner, regardless of their sin! We should love them and pray for them.

      .
  • Same reason he created you.
  • That is a false accusation......because of this... (Leviticus 18:22)
  • The same answer to all questions that appear to point out contradictions or inconsistencies in Christianity: "God works in mysterious ways".
  • To share another biblical answer: Satan is the god of this world who created homosexuality. This was done by the desires of the flesh the world craves for. 1 John 2:16 "For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."
  • Deuteronomy 32:4,5 states: "The Rock, perfect in his activity, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness who is never unjust. Righteous and upright is he. 5) They are the ones who have acted corruptly. They are not his children, the defect is their own. They are a crooked and twisted generation." Also, the first chapter of Romans tells us that, when men went after men and women after women, and they were worshipping the creation instead of the creator, "24) Therefore, God, in keeping with the desires of their heart, gave them up to uncleanness, so that their bodies might be dishonored among them." Jehovah did not create people to be homosexual, but he allows free choice. Just remember, choices have consequences.
  • He figured there had to be someone who looked at a dude's hairy ass and would get turned on.
