I was sitting in my room on the computer when I suddenly got an urge to "try something new" with another woman. After I had repented, flogged myself several times, and promised to offer a burnt offering for forgiveness to the All-Powerful, All-Omnipotent, and All-Merciful Ruler of the universe, I skipped back to my bed and said a long, remorseful prayer. Refreshing.
Just kidding :p But, on a more serious note, is this common among either gender? I might just be asking some really weird questions, but does anyone else ever have a moment when they're attracted to the same sex? Is it offensive to people who are naturally inclined to be gay to "experiment"? Personally, even when I was a christian, I didn't know how to deal with the whole issue. It seemed so snotty just to say something like "I love the sinner and not the sin" (picture a victorian noblewoman fanning herself and in a fake, high-pitched voice going "hahahahaha" right after saying this). Now I don't really care. People should be able to be with who they love regardless of who it turns out to be. But I never thought that I'd ever have those types of feelings.
Any other thoughts?
You make an argument against Romans 1:26 as being vague. I could agree with that. But it would be a contrived argument to make Paul is referring to bestiality instead of lesbianism or bisexuality as "unnatural use" as the context there does not allow for such licence with the text and the following sentence/ verse 1:27 the word "likewise.." as in "..likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another.." suggests Paul is quite explicit in listing lesbians, bisexuals and homosexuals among those "worthy of death."
The point is not I think how liberal minded Christians could if they so please reinterpret stuff in the Bible that is immoral, wrong, stupid, inconsistent, (self-)contradictory and so forth and turn it into something mildly sane with accompanying exegesis, however clever that might be constructed, but what the text actually says and more importantly what Bible thumping Christians believe it says.
If they believe your version and only male homosexuals should be put to death, then I guess we saved the better half, but it is still a depressing story nevertheless I'd think.
The varieties of human sexual behavior are many and varied. The only one that is not a sin is pro-creative sex between married members of the opposite sex. So, all the rest of the sexual behaviors humans exhibit, though not necessarily rare are taboo, but the majority participates in at least some of them, sometime in their lives. Masturbation, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, polyamory, bestiality, sodomy, oral sex, anal sex, bondage and domination, sado-maschosim, frotterage, etc. etc. etc.
My bottom line is: if it feels good and is pleasurable to all involved, enjoy yourself.
