There are two major cultural issues being debated in the US at this time: homosexual marriage and immigration. Starting next week, I want to begin exploring the issue of homosexuality and homosexual marriage.
My intention is to discuss at least the following topics:
- Categories of sexual orientation
- The causes of homosexuality
- Homosexuality and Darwinism
- Cultural history of homosexuality
- Homosexuality and the Bible
- Homosexuality as sin
- Marriage versus Civil Unions
I had hoped to have a blogging discussion with a friend who teaches at a college and promotes homosexuality and bi-sexuality. However, I could not get a response from my friend and so I have decided to simply begin the discussion anyway.
This will not be a detailed, scientific discussion, but one more general in nature. I intend, however, to be thorough when necessary.
I will go on record now and say that I do believe homosexuality is wrong. However, in my posts (and I expect this as well in the comment areas), I will be respectful and take the mentality of an explorer, asking questions and seeking answers.
I hope this spurs honest discussion and that we can engage people respectfully and lovingly.
