I just want to say that I feel so blessed that I'm at an age where I don't have the sexual needs and drives to be worried about this any more. I can just relate to individuals without sex getting in the way.
As to the previous discussion about Old versus New Testament on the matter: I think the New Testament sums it up.
No one is perfect and no one is without sin. There are just so many things that are so much more harmful and worse than homosexuality - like false witnessing, rape(hetero or homo), incest, murder, etc. Only GOD is perfect enough NOT to be a hypocrite. NOT one of us is able to understand GOD's ultimate plan, which includes why some have an un-chosen inborn and enate preference for same gender sex. NO one would choose persecution.
I would ask V in SC to provide a New Testament chapter and verse where homosexuality is explicitly condemned.
See my chapter and verse below to the contrary:
John 08:07: So when they continued asking him(Jesus), he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her(adulteress).
001: Judge not, that ye be not judged.
002: For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
003: And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
004: Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
005: Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
