Would God condemn someone for the homosexual act unless it is an act that a person could say no to?
Would Jesus Christ sanction marriage between those of the same sex in a ceremony being performed by some ordained clergy? How should we as Christians look at these types of "marriages"?

The Bible teaches that God created Eve for Adam, the female for the male. Throughout the Bible, sex or marriage between those of the same sex is forbidden. You see, God states:
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.
(Lev. 18:22 NKJ)

If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
(Lev. 20:13 NKJ)

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.
(1 Cor. 6:9 NKJ)
Under the law of Moses, written to the Jews, those who committed such an act were to be put to death. In the New Testament, which is written to Christians, the Bible states that you can't go to Heaven if you practice this type of sin. Neither Jesus, nor the Bible, approves of this type of thing.

We live in a society that has taken the homosexual act from a state of sin to treating it as an inherent trait. People don't realize that there are demons of lust that put thoughts in their minds concerning these perverted things.

Once you give in to these things your sinful flesh wants more and more. Nobody is born this way! Would God condemn someone for the homosexual act unless it is an act that a person could say no to?

You see, God loves the sinner and wishes that all people would come to know Him as Lord and Savior. But He will always hate the sin itself. That's why He gave us the blood. The blood of Jesus can free a man or woman from this lifestyle and make their desires normal (Rom. 10:8-17). God also provides strength and power through His Holy Spirit to overcome this sin and any other.
