In the field of psychology, homosexuality at one time was considered "abnormal" by those in that profession. First off, they are not all-knowing and there are no hidden secrets in that profession. Psychology is at a minimum an accruement of philosophies, and at it's worst the most prevalent branch of the religion of secular humanism, psychology being the study of the soul.
With DSM-II in 1973, homosexuality was removed as a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association due to social unrest and protests. (In biblical terms mankind preferred to do what is right in their own eyes). It was the studies of the pervert Alfred E. Kinsey who generated the reasoning behind the removal. (It was later discovered that Kinsey performed deviate sexual studies on innocent infants).
At the same time psychologist George Weinberg indicated that an healthy homosexual was one who had overcome prejudice against him, in effect, indicating that intolerance was the problem, not homosexuality. The civil rights and feminists movement stigmatized what they labeled "homophobia". Hence, it was no longer homosexuality which was abnormal, but those who disagreed with the practice. Wrongly, they associated disagreement with fear, although society doesn't fear what goes on behind closed doors, but find it either immoral or disgusting. Since, it has been the normal who are labeled abnormal, those tolerant of homosexuality have become the haters of those with whom they disagree.
This very twisting of truth and the implementation of Big Brother type newspeak and doublethink is what political correctness is all about and what Donald Trump ran against. One of the main reasons I voted for him was because of his aversion to political correctness, basically lies to protect the feelings of the skin-skinned.
Since 1973 society has generally come to accept homosexual behavior because of "remolding", as they call it, by psychology, higher education, the media and pressure from those abnormal themselves. (Read that brainwashing). Add to that the progressives and libertarians who propagate the notion that it's okay to do what is right in your own eyes!
Unfortunately for the rest of us, we are forced to see and hear through television, movies and life what we don't want to see with our own eyes! Some of us still find it unnatural, not because we're haters, but because it always has been except in wicked societies. However, the ultimate reason is it's not us who makes the rules: it is God!
Leviticus 18:22 (ESV) "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination."First off, "shall not" makes this a command! Who made the command? God. You see, I didn't make the rules and neither did a bunch of bigoted Jews and Christians. It was God who made the rules. He even gave the reason for it: "It is an abomination." Abomination means "disgusting". In God's eyes people of the same sex who have sexual relations do disgusting things. That defies God, not me nor others, since it is God's authority to make the rules for his creation.
Some say "love the sinner, but hate the sin" is not in the Bible. Actually, the entire Bible is about hating sin and loving the sinner. Because Jesus loves us so he desires that none of us sinners should parish (John 3:16). Why would anyone perish? Because God hates sin!
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ( ESV) "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
Why not go to heaven? God hates sin and doesn't want it in his divine face.
"Born this way?" Nope! God doesn't create disgusting people. We all have the propensity to be disgusting, but same-sex attraction is behavioral. Even Sigmund Freud, the originator of psychoanalysis, proposed several behavioral reasons for same-sex attraction, none of which were genetic. (Note that there is not one study which proves that homosexuality is a genetic trait or more simply that people are born that way. That is another lie propagated by society).
Lastly, some say, "all sins are the same". That too is a lie even repeated by preachers and theologians. Unrepented sin regardless of their nature all have an equal penalty: death, but their magnitudes vary. The range of sins proceed from accidental to casual such as boiling a kid in its mother's milk, to malicious, to abominable to the unpardonable sin. Even the sin of Caiaphas was a greater sin than Pilate's we are told (John 19:11).
Satan made greater sins. Don't blame God. People commit greater sins. Don't blame God. However, God did make the rules, so don't blame me. I didn't make the rules. Don't call me hateful or intolerant. It's God who made the rules and he teaches obedience not tolerance!
