Are homosexuals soon to be extinct?

There is a lot of chatter all over the web about the religious implications of homosexuality. Some like Phil believe that homos cannot get into heaven. The LGBT community believe that homos have the same rights to heaven as everyone else. So who is right?

Are we judging the homos because they sin differently from us? Most all Christians agree that we all fall short of the Glory of God. We are all sinners and we must accept that Jesus is the only way to gain entrance into heaven.

So, if we are all sinners and we all fall short of the Glory of God and we all need Jesus to get into heaven, why is that the homos are left out?

Well, since most Christians accept that we are all sinners, most Christians also believe that sinners must repent of their sins and try to become a better version of theirselves each day. Repenting of our sins seems to me what we need to focus on.

Of course, to be repentant of homosexuality, the homosexual must first admit that homosexuality is in fact a sin. Since the Bible list homosexuality as a sin (1 Timothy 1, 10, and 1 Corinthians, 6, 9), we will assume it is a sin in this post.

If we have a person that sins by having sex outside of marriage, that person is in a state of sin and should that person die, they couldn't get into heaven since they were in a sinful state. So how does this person repent of their sins? Whether you see a priest or join a support group, to be truly repentant, that person must stop the behavior that is creating the sin.

In the case of homosexuals, they can consider themself  homosexual but they must stop committing the sin to get into heaven. The only way to do this is to be celebate. If a homosexual is celebate, they are not committing any sin, they are repentant, and will have the same chance as anyone else in getting into heaven. At least, this is what Christians believe.

So let's take religion out of the discussion. Let's look at this from a polar opposite view. Hell, lets just drag Darwin into the discussion.

Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection

  1. More individuals are produced each generation that can survive.
  2. Phenotypic variation exists among individuals and the variation is heritable.
  3. Those individuals with heritable traits better suited to the environment will survive.
  4. When reproductive isolation occurs new species will form.

If all the homo men were put on one continent by themselves, all the homo women were put on another
continent by themselves and all the hetro couples were on another continent with no way to interact
with the other groups, what would happen?

Within one generation only hetro couples would be left. By Darwin's way of thinking, this makes the
homo population a weaker group who will not be able to procreate thus leading to their extinction.
Although Darwin states that when reproductive isolation occurs, new species will form, that cannot
happen within one generation.

So whi is right and who is wrong? That question will never have a standard answer. It comes down
to what each person believes. I know this much though, it will be interesting to watch this unfold in
the future.
