The law of God is not a Democracy, and further, this whole notion of Democratically voting on what should or should not be a crime is also not a legitimate Democracy. Any man-made law which does not agree with God's law is not a legitimate law. You can "legalize" lgbtq and abortion all you want, but I dare you to commit those acts, because the day you do, both "Natural law" and the written Law of God tells you that you will NOT inherit the Kingdom fo God because of those things.PROOF.Your religions's founder said, "Not everyone who says unto me, "Lord, Lord" shall enter into the Kingdom of God, BUT HE WHO DOETH THE WILL OF THE FATHER.That verb conjugation "Doeth" is present progressive, which means you must CONTINUALLY do good all of your life in order to be "Saved", and homosexuality and transsexualism are not only "not good" but they are "abomination" the worst sin imaginable short of murder is lgbtq. That's what the word "abomination" means.
If you go by what the Bible says, because that is the foudning document of all three Abrahamic religions, then LGBTQ is not only BANNED from Heaven, but they are supposed to be put to death by their own family if and when they are discovered.Moreover, fi you go by what the Bible says, a Woman is never supposed to be a priest or pastor and is never supposed to have authority over a man: Period. The term "priestess" or "Prophetess" in the Bible does not refer to a woman in the office of priest or prophet, a s that is specifically forbidden, but rahter refers to a woman who is married to a priest or prophet. Which also proves the catholic celibate priest thing as being unbiblical. The Priests in the Old Testament of the Bible are required to be married to exactly one wife to hold office, and if they are divorced they can no longer serve in the office of a priest or prophet UNLESS they remain celibate AFTER the divorce, w hich would indicate the divorce wasn't their own fault but that of a whoring wife..
Let me add that gays can be saved. There is one thing to be gay in your head and yet not practice homosexual acts. If they repent of their sin and profess Jesus as their Savior they will be saved. Romans 10:8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.…
@Daniela 1982 I have been reading your replies on this question thread and I must say you're pretty sound!!
When you say gays can be saved, do you mean in the sense of what Jesus did on the cross or in a "conversation therapy" way. Also it seems like quite a lot to suppress these desires for the rest of your life. I am Christian and I can tell you it's hard!!! Very, not even the same was lying, lust or stealing is. A lot of people say to "pray" about it but is that even realistic? I have prayed several times but I still have these desires and I kind of feel like I might have to choose one; faith or...
Depends on what your prayer is. 1 Cor 10:13 - "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it." In your prayers you can ask God to lessen your desires that you may escape the bondage of sin. Mathew 7:7-11 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: …Matthew 18:19Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.Matthew 21:22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.You have to have faith in what you ask God. If it is His will (asking for money will probably not be His will for you) it will be yours. It just takes faith. So if you ask God to lessen and remove your sexual desires that go against His word it will happen.

I hear you and you made pretty solid points there. Since you say "practising", it's okay to have homosexual desires as a religious person but not act on it, superseding your desires for the sake of religion? So it's okay/possible to be homosexual and religious
I hear you but I don't think any "sin" is bigger than the other
What i meant that if a person was born this way than it's not in his/her hand to change, it wasn't a choice from the 1st place but for others like trans, they went on the wrong path and they chose to be like that, so it's different...Even though i don't support this whole community at all...
it happen, but they hide it
True. Unfortunately. That’s quite an uncomfortable life
by the way you of course know vicars etc can be LGBT en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_clergy_in_Christianity
