Many JWs are chaste or virtuous homosexuals and "in good standing"

    I agree with Lisa Rose - to say people with homsexual desires are okay provided they don't act on those desires (and the correlation with fornication is also unfair given according to the WBTS homosexuals can never marry each other) is cruel and ridiculous and a recipe for guilt. So to my mind the distinction RTF is making is entirely spurious and one that only someone with a Witness background would concern themselves with.

    agree with KateWild

    Also if you and the parents are in the "in" crowd - and they carry favour with the elders - whatever you do will be swept under the carpet. It has nothing at all to do with the holy spirit.

    If you in you in - if you out you out!!

    Good point, designs.

    If we accept Christian theology and believe that Yahweh is the creator, and if we accept 2 Peter 3:12 (that animal behaviour is instinctive) then we have the contradiction that Yahweh implanted the desire for sex with, the same sex into animal instinct, but made a law against humans doing the same.

    Great book on the topic of animal sexuality: Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity. Author: Bruce Bagemihl, Ph.D. Its essentially a metastudy of the work of major biologists in the field.

    Great contrasts; For example, Jesus counts among his titles, The Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Bagemihl cites field research that show malr homosexuality to be quite common among male lions.

    Make what you want of John's account of his leaning on the chest of Jeus during the last supper.

    The ones I knew of who tried to be celibate or marry to the opposite sex eventually failed and followed through to

    where their inherent genetic biology directed them.

    The WTS. continuously pours out propaganda bullshit for their gullible faithful .

    hm. Surely sucking and celibacy are mutually exclusive? :)
