Hi Mr Summit, you said “Or, as I have heard it said, homosexuality has been found amongst many species, homophobia in just one. Which is “unnatural”? I had to think about this one well, perhaps its because humans are of a “higher intelligence” in that they can see there is a difference between heterosexuals and homosexuals where perhaps, animals dont see a difference, if that makes sense. And in the case of human, some perceive that difference as a threat or simply something they dont like or agree with and react (homophobia)
Then again, who says there is not homophobia amongst animals?perhaps some animals “beat up” on other animals or “attack” them simply because they are “homosexual animals” 😉 we can never really know unless we can speak animal lingo 😉 if you could, maybe you could go up to say, a Tiger and ask “why don’t you like that other Tiger?” or “why did you just beat the crap out of him?” and he or she may reply “because he is a fag!” :p just kidding … I dont think we can be certain that there is or there isn’t homophobia amongst the animal kingdom.
AVB you said “simply put………. same sex activity, same sex partnering, same sex parenting goes on in nature. What causes it? Nature. Is it good or bad. Neither it just is.So with us”.
yes, same sex activity … goes on in nature, but which nature? Animal nature? we are not animals, so what may be considered natural amongst animals does not always fit with human nature.
We live in a fallen world, human nature is not what it was designed to be, nature itself is broken, right from the beginning, so with that in mind, perhaps it could be said that homosexuality is unnatural or broken. Perhaps, it has come about purely as a result of the original sin. Sin has entered the world and perhaps homosexuality is just one way in which sin is expressed in some people :~
Then again, keeping in line with that what I just said, if homosexuality is a sin (as many suggest) then in that case, it is very much unnatural! because sin is unnatural, man was created to live without sin, to live in harmony with God and in a sinless world. If sin is unnatural, a violation against God, wrong … and if homosexuality is a sin, then homosexuality is unnatural, a violation against God, wrong … :O
But of course, that is if you believe homosexuality is a sin in the first place.
