there is a Bible verse that calls homosexuality an “abomination.” But there are more verses that call eating shellfish and other prohibited foods “abominations.” So why do Christians feel free to scarf down shrimp, crab, lobster and bacon, if the Bible clearly says that eating such things greatly offends the God they claim to love and adore? The answer is simple: most Christians no longer believe that eating non-kosher food offends God, even though the Bible clearly says otherwise. Christians are necessarily very selective readers and believers of the Bible, or they would have to murder their own children over misdemeanors. They very wisely ignore all sorts of biblical commands and injunctions that they find senseless or inconvenient. But then why do so many of them deny homosexuals the right to ignore injunctions they find senseless?
Christians who single out homosexuality as a “special case” are hypocrites. In other matters, they decided long ago that if an action doesn’t harm anyone it isn’t a “sin” even if the Bible clearly says otherwise. So Christians feel free to eat shellfish, to work on the Sabbath, and to wear unisex clothing like sweats and jeans, because such things don’t harm other people. And of course most Christians feel free to have sex as they please because consensual sex between adults is not a crime or a sin commensurate with rape or murder. How many heterosexual Christians remain virgins until they marry, and never have sex with anyone other than their first spouse? Obviously, very few. Christians who have multiple sexual partners seem to be convinced that God understands and forgives them by “grace,” which would be very nice (assuming having sex is actually a “sin”) if only they didn’t poison grace by insisting it can’t be shown to homosexuals, who also aren’t hurting anyone when they have consensual sex.
