Here's a view on homosexuality for you...

    If you accept that the Bible condemns homosexual expressions of love by intercourse, and many a scholarly article would dispute the exegesis of these texts by JW's and others, but if you accept this as a rule to live by, you must live by all the other biblical rules.

    I would love to see the JW's try.

    All you can do is reason from the scriptures, which you appear to have done. Homosexuality is as serious as bestiality, or adultery and fornication. Actually, the Bible describes homosexuality as a greater sin than adultery or fornication. The reasoning is that the desire for same-sex intercourse is one "contrary to nature" according to Romans 1:24. At least with heterosexual fornication the wrong doers are acting in harmony with the natural desire for the opposite sex.

    Homosexuality is not comparable to bestiality because bestiality is a form of abuse since, unlike 2 consenting adult humans, animals aren't able to give consent to humans.

    Saying that homosexuality is as serious as adultery, is like saying that heterosexuality is as serious as adultery. Adultery is the wrong of a married person (whether homosexual or heterosexual) having sex with someone other than their legally married spouse(s) (whether gay or straight).

    Fornication is just sex outside of marriage - again it applies both to gays and straights.

    Same-sex intercourse is only "contrary to nature" for heterosexuals - the same way that heterosexual intercourse is "contrary to nature" for homosexuals.

    At least with heterosexual fornication the wrong doers are acting in harmony with the natural desire for the opposite sex.

    Apart from the occasional narrow minded redneck JW, it has been my experience that most JW's blame "imperfection" as the reason we are inclined to do sinful things. This includes our inability to control our biological urges, Heterosexual, Homosexual or otherwise.

    The reason that Homosexuality seems to be treated the harshest even though the punishment from God is the supposedly the same, is because heterosexuals can't wrap their minds around what physically has to take place during the sex act between homosexuals. The Watchtower comment above makes it easier for them to justify them going the extra mile when it comes to treating Homosexuals harshly. It almost seems as though Pedophiles get more slack from the Watchtower Society, than Homosexuals do.

    My earlier years in the organization there were two ladies the wife and I were close to.

    They lived together, pioneered , many studies and aided many to baptism. One study I remember

    they had was a ex porno worker, she was baptized.

    I told the wife one day, those two sisters are gay, and she said Oh no not in Jehovah's organization.

    I was told years later they were both DF.

    Now the funny thing about this, they were instrumental in aiding others into this loving organization.

    I guess Jehovah works in mysterious ways.


    That pro-dub is blatantly ignoring the GB's divine decrees by commenting on a forum. Also, they are wrong about homosexuality being worse than other "sins."

    According to the Bible, ( ahem....) there is no rating system for sins. "Sin", merits death, THE END. You can be repentant for any "sin", it doesn't matter if it was murder or tax evasion.

    Also, you cannot be DF'd if you are "repentant", not officially. Only "unrepentant wrongdoers" [ Seriously, who the F*** talks like that...] are DF'd. In theory, Hitler ( I hate to use him as an example, but some people's minds just demand to hear about Hitler...Jesus H.......) could have become a Dub, repented, and been in good standing. Sure, he may have had to pay for his crimes, but he could watch your kids for you.

    The WTBTS loves Pedos, but hates homos...

    I think there are degrees of sins. Theft is not the same as murder.

    Homosexuality is grouped with fornication and adultery.

    Then there are other sins....

    The bible account of a woman who intervened in a fight between two men and had her hand cut off because she grabbed the attacker's balls.

    Deuteronomy 25:11

    “If two men fight together, and the wife of one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of the one attacking him, and puts out her hand and seizes him by the genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; your eye shall not pity her.”

    Truthseeker: OK I have had it with that book , the Bible. Maybe a few of the

    books was written by folks in the Neanderthal period, that would explain Deuteronomy 25:11.

    That is one way to stop a fight if your husband is getting his butt kicked.

    She should have used her foot.

    As for homosexuality it's never given as a higher sin. In fact lying(giving false witness), not respecting your parents, adultery, etc are all given the same weight.

    Practically everything in the OT warrants the death penalty.

    It's a f**king wonder the ancient Hebrews didn't go extinct.
