Free Presbyterians' attitude to gays wrong

Published 17/06/2015

THE Kirk Session of Bethany Free Presbyterian Church felt compelled to inform us that the Bible "describes homosexual activity as a most serious and wicked sin" and that God's "judgement will come upon those who engage in it" (Write Back, June 16).

Are these gentlemen aware that homosexual behaviour is also documented in many species of animals? In Christian theology the animal world is not described as sinful. They don't have a sin nature like humans do. Jesus didn't die for them.

So how can God be angry at gay people having sex and not at animals who do the same thing? The fact is, regardless of what the authors of the Bible believed, homosexuality is natural.
