Please Read Carefully before you post,
I know most people are gutted being that we have a society that is extremely homophobic, but just like you there was a time in Calabar when the birth of twins was also viewed as a taboo so if you have never taken the time out to read and research about this topic I would advice you to do so before you post it doesn't matter what your position is as long as you do it from a position of having examined the facts.
Christian leaders have written about homosexual male-male sexual activities since the first decades of Christianity; female-female sexual behaviour was essentially ignored. Throughout the majority of Christian history most theologians and Christian denominations have viewed homosexual behavior as immoral or sinful. However, in the past century some prominent theologians and Christian religious groups have espoused a wide variety of beliefs and practices towards homosexuals, including the establishment of some 'open and accepting' congregations.
Liberal Christian view
Liberal Christians believe that Biblical passages have been mistranslated or that these passages do not refer to homosexuality. Liberal Christian scholars, like conservative Christian scholars, accept earlier versions of the Bible in Hebrew or Greek. However within these early Bibles there are many terms that liberals have interpreted differently than previous generations of scholars. They are concerned with copying errors, forgery, and of biases among the translators of later Bibles.
Conservative Christian view
Conservative Christians belong to the traditional marriage movement, which believe that only unions between one man and one woman should be legally defined as marriages. They interpret biblical verses on homosexuality to mean that homosexuality is against God's will.
Furthermore, they believe that the heterosexual family is divinely inspired,commanded of God, and that homosexual relationships undermines heterosexual marriage.They interpret some Biblical passages such as "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh"(Gen 2:24) and "Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord"(1 Corn 11:11) as evidence of the God-given nature of the heterosexual family.
Nature or Nurture
In debating sexual orientation, much is unknown; according to Charles Darwin, ", we do not even in the least know the final cause of sexuality. The whole subject is hidden in darkness." . Although the APA currently states that sexual orientation is not a choice, rather that ", it emerges from most people in early adolescence with no prior sexual experience" social theorists argue that an individual's upbringing can directly influence this [sexual orientation]. Also tied in with many of these debates is the morality of homosexuality. But the purpose of this examination is not to prove whether or not homosexuality is right or wrong, but rather to establish a thorough understanding of the biological and social theories surrounding the cause of homosexuality.
