There are many commonalities and many differences between homosexual and heterosexual unions. For those who support the Bible basis for homosexuality as a sin, what specifically are the necessary differences between heterosexuality and homosexuality which they would say make one a sin, and not the other?
Is the fact that two people love each other, both spiritually and physically, a significant factor in this decision?
Is procreation a necessary factor? If it is a factor, then could that be offset by a homosexual couple who take care of the children that heterosexuals do not want? Also, if procreation is a factor, then would that mean certain acts by heterosexuals would be sinners as well, if they have sex without attempting to procreate?
Is it possible that the Bible basis that is often supported forgets to account for the context of the passages? Could they possibly be referring to lust instead of only sex, and if so, how would that change the this position?
Does Jesus mention homosexuality in the NT? If it is a sin, would Jesus not have mentioned it specifically?
These are several questions, but they represent common arguments from proponents of homosexuality and are points which are often discussed by Christian opponents of homosexuality. A single answer should be able to sum up the common arguments from the Bible that are commonly given by supporters of that position to answer these questions.
