"...has focused on the ways that this doctrinal issue has divided various groups of believers."

The issue of homosexuality doesn't divide believers, it exposes that tares and the goats.

it's interesting in a way. Religiously, doctrinally we know the h lifestyle is wrong. Biologically it makes no sense either. It was tolerated in ancient greece, but not celebrated as another kind of marriage -- marriage was marriage and fooling around was fooling around even in the pederast culture of Sparta.

If folks want to make gay a lifestyle choice, then they need to leave Christianity (or islam or Judaism) -- they can become Hindu or form their own religion (note: Hinduism doesn't actually say anything about gays, but there is no such thing as a gay 'marriage' in Hindu culture -- however there is no injunct against homosexuality per se).

They can have their own "civil unions" -- I don't care.

But no, they want to change our definition. Why?
