You've admitted that God's rule isn't absolute when it come to morality because you would deny a direct command given from God himself if you yourself felt it was morally wrong. Why not extend that to every facet of your life? If homosexuality isn't harmful at all, then why follow that command?Good question. And I don't know. But what I do know is this: 1) Even if he said it was okay, I most likely still wouldn't do it. 2) He wouldn't say that.
Mothers own their children? They brought them into the world from nonexistence, so do they have the right to beat them and starve them? No, the act of creation has nothing to do with how you treat an autonomous individual. People should be treated as people, independent agents, regardless of their origin.Let me explain. If you were to bring something into existence that was previously nonexistent, then by the legal principles of the world, it belongs to you. You can do with it as you please.
Commanding people to ignore their own sexuality is not mentally abusive?Now that doesn't mean you necessarily should. You CAN tell something what to do, but you shouldn't give it commands that it physically or mentally is incapable of, or abusive.
You seem to be ignoring that we people are born as homosexuals now. A god willing to harm anyone and everyone by condemning their sexuality is an immoral God by definition. Even creating all of humanity doesn't excuse harming your creation, especially when your creation is sentient.But the thing is, no one would be born with homosexual tendencies. That's just it.
And a Christian, yes.And remember, this is coming from a bisexual.
