FYI: There is a current (as of Sep 1, 2010 {Revised Julian}) moratorium on discussion of this topic (homosexuality).

Please see the following thread for details, and to see when/if the moratorium will be lifted:,25372.0.html

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, & godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope & glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed & purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.  Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. (Titus 2:11-15)
