The problem is that you don't care. You'll find out soon enough what God thinks about homosexuality, because you'll have to give Him an account of all that you've done. And you should know that God will not change you unless you first repent and acknowledge that homosexuality is a sin. Do you believe that desiring sexually a person of your own sex is lust and unnatural? First you must reject sin then God forgives you and cleanses you. But if you say that you have not sinned then God will not listen to you and you will die in your sin. Jesus has the power and authority to forgive you but you must repent.

If the Bible is “a radically pro-slavery document” (Dan Savage), how is it that Christians who successfully fought for the abolition of slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries based their opposition to slavery on that very same Bible? The answer is simple: The Bible is actually not “a radically pro-slavery document.”

According to Savage (following atheist Sam Harris), “the Bible got the easiest moral question that humanity has ever faced wrong. Slavery! What’re the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? 100% percent.”

To be candid, it’s easy to see where Savage and Harris are...
