Why would homosexual desires be more unbecoming to a god than hetorosexual ones?
Wouldn't any of it be equally un-godlike?

Perhaps the god wants all the homosexual fun for for itself.

From a Catholic perspective I can tell you that the notion that sexual desire is "unbecoming to God" is just as much a heresy as the idea that "pornography is becoming to God." The problem with homosxual acts, is that they are not open to procreative nature that God intended sex to have. As such, just like any sex outside of the bonds of marriage, homosexual sex is in essence a selfish act. It is not possible to fully give of yourself in a homosexual act.
If you sincerely want to understand this concept I would really recommend reading some of the articles on this website.

Outside of marriage yes, because all sin is sin. There is no degree of sin, it's just plain sin.
However hetorosexual love expressed through sex (within marriage) is not unbecoming to god, as it is the foundation for the live cycle. The same can not said for heterosexual sexual relations.

Why is a God denied sexuality?
hetero or homo
We live under the artificial contrivance that the way we are made is BAD yet in a world created and evolving with myriad intercourse of flowers and trees and birds and bees and even atomic subpartcles interacting with each other in pure ecstasy.
So if all of this in our Cosmos is God's way of evolving Creation then why do we have religions constraining what God has wrought?
In my humble opinion it is not what man or woman does to another
but more that they aquire the other 's PERMISSION and CONSENT FIRST! while fully understanding that the 'other' is also a sovereign being with the life of God flowing and living in them also.
The rest is all just experiential.

Desire is not sinful, but acts are. Neither homosexual, nor heterosexual desire is in itself, a sin, but BOTH acts are sinful outside of the state of marriage and only a man and a woman may be married under christianity.
Marriage is a sanctified union in which two people, a man and a woman, give themselves to each other completely, including the gift of their individual fertility. The two literally become one flesh because a new human being enters into this world. The act is sacred because that human being has an immortal soul and God Himself particpates in the act by the creation of that soul.
Sex is not just a union of parts (body parts) but a union of intention and principle (the principal purpose of sex is procreation). Men and Women are intended, biologically, to be with one another and to be compatible with one another and to create life. Homosexuals are not biologically naturally capable of doing this and thus their union does not follow the principle end and meaning of sex.
However, all homosexuals must be approached with love, mercy and compassion. Here is what the catechism of the catholic church states on the issue:
"2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. They do not choose their homosexual condition: for most of them it is a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection."

Obviously, it's not "God," but "religious" prigs who are obsessed with the details of other people's sex lives. I really don't think it's just a coincidence that the "God" of petty bigots always turns out to be a petty bigot Himself.
"God created 2 sexes for the purpose of procreation." Well, then, I guess any kind of non-procreative sex is out. So if you've ever had oral, I'll see you in hell.
I am really VERY tired of people trying to pass off their own grotesque sexual neuroses as holiness.
P.S. - So yeah, my question got deleted. I'm appealing it now. If Yahoo won't help me, I'm putting it on the board. Please support me in this. I am sick of having viable questions and answers deleted because a few losers just can't stand being exposed to opinions that aren't directly in line with theirs.

Well, God hangs around a lot of very handsome angels in all the pictures I've seen . I doubt it's coincidence!

At least those of us that respond to homosexual desires don't leave strings of abandoned children in our wakes.

ANY kind of urges would be un-godly. As long as the god we're talking about is afraid of sex. (And the Abrahamic one is.)

Because religion doesn't understand and wants to CONTROL one of the overriding aspects of life...to love and be loved. Gender is irrelevant...PEACE!
