Does God Loves Homosexuality?
Last month while debating on religious issues, there came one topic suddenly into discussion and he simply supported his arguments with statement "God loves homosexuals, anyone who says otherwise does not know God". The question that arises then simply was "Does God Loves Homosexuality?". I thought to share our discussion publicly so others should also know that how God has warned about such evil act in Holy Quran and Bible.
In Holy Quran and Bible, God has discussed about the people who were indulge in this great sin and Prophet Lot (Peace Be Upon Him) was sent towards them for their guidance, but due to their arrogant and ignorant attitude God cursed them all except few who were the righteous, saved:
And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, "Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds? Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people." But the answer of his people was only that they said, "Evict them from your city! Indeed, they are men who keep themselves pure." So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; she was of those who remained [with the evildoers]. And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.Surah Al-A'araf - Chapter: 7, Verses: 80 - 84
In Bible, God himself have warned against many great evils:
Or 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 effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.Corinthians 6: 9 - 10
Likewise, in Holy Quran there is mentioned about Prophet Lot (Peace Be Upon Him), in Bible there is mentioned about the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and its surroundings where Prophet Lot (Peace Be Upon Him) was sent to warn the peoples about this satanic act of homosexuality. But when they denied and do not repent:
Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah--from the LORD out of the heavens.Genesis 19:24
and afterwards the condition of the land was:
The whole land will be a burning waste of salt and sulfur--nothing planted, nothing sprouting, no vegetation growing on it. It will be like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim, which the LORD overthrew in fierce anger.Deuteronomy 29:23
In Genesis, it proves that God has saved Prophet Lot (Peace Be Upon Him) and the righteous one and cursed on all others:
and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the valley, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land ascended like the smoke of a furnace. Thus it came about, when God destroyed the cities of the valley, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot lived. Lot went up from Zoar , and stayed in the mountains, and his two daughters with him; for he was afraid to stay in Zoar; and he stayed in a cave, he and his two daughters.Genesis 19: 28 – 30
God condemns the act of homosexuality. Holy Quran and Bible, both proves that homosexuality is a severe evil act due to which cities were destroyed by the wrath of Allah.
