can you blame them? chronicle: response

respect begets respect.
i always believe in the goodness of men. though as much i want other people to think that way, sometimes i just can't help myself from feeling bad whenever one feels the contrary to his fellow. after posting my former entry, i was bombarded with so many thoughts while i was reading the comments. so i have figured that instead of posting a response, i thought of writing an entry instead.
sin is defined by our morals. nonetheless, morals are not absolute. even the church claims that it committed and can still commit mistakes (ie. burning of witches, heretics etc). although, i cannot completely say that the church is commiting another one again. i just find it hard to accept an institution such as it to condemn those who find love to another. isn't love the root of what they are trying to propagate?
but of course, everything that comes in excess is the root of the otherwise. but who can blame them? if a society deprives them the right to love who they want to, can we blame them to counter that society that would not accept them in the first place. thus, the sin we prevent emerges. one should understand that the sin we are trying to avoid is not the act itself rather is the result of such act. and the outcome is also contributed by other societal factors such as inacceptance, repression, discrimination etc. etc.
these are not simply acts that homosexuals do out of their whims. they are also any human beings who are in search for that someone that will actualize the purpose/s of their lives: to be happy, to love and be loved. but at the end, most of them fail, more because of lack of support and acceptance and the absence of venue and right. and just like any other individual they also feel, tell me again, can we blame them?

sometimes, defending our actions are really tiring already.

i'f we're going to burn in hell, like the freak in the previous entry believes, at least we were able to do the things that made us happy.

Since God determine what sin is, here is God's opinion:

" Do not be deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, NOR HOMOSEXUALS.....shall inherit the kingdom of God" ...... And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God". (I Corin. 6:9-11)

You can be set free from this demonic sin through the power of Jesus Christ. Many homosexuals have been completely set free to live a holy life through the power of Jesus Christ.

Scriptures say exactly why the wrath of God abides on the homosexuals:
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who withhold the truth in unrighteousness.... because when they knew God they glorified Him not as God,.... Professing themselves to wise, they became fools, ..... Wherefore God gave them up to dishonor their bodies among themselves...Who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worship and served the creature more than the Creator... FOR THIS CAUSE God gave them up to vile affections....and likewise the men also, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another, men with men,... receiving in themselves THE JUST RECOMPENSE FOR THEIR ERROR,... God gave then over to a reprobate mind,.... filled with all unrighteousness, ...full of envy, murder, deceit,....haters of God,...proud,...without understanding,...who, KNOWING THE JUDGMENT OF GOD, that they which commit such things ARE WORTHY OF (ETERNAL) DEATH..." (Romans 1: 18-32
