    What is a 'practicing homosexual'? You don't put aside your sexuality like a cloak, then put it on again...wow. 

    Here the vague "reasoning" is that it's 'in the Bible'. With the usual clobber verses employed. All of which can be argued they don't mean what people use them say they mean. It's a cover for their taught hatred of a group, meant to legitimize it. That's an obvious. 

    "Shrimp, crab, lobster, clams, mussels, all these are an abomination before the Lord, just as gays are an abomination. Why stop at protesting gay marriage? Bring all of God's law unto the heathens and the sodomites. We call upon all Christians to join the crusade against Long John Silver's and Red Lobster. Yea, even Popeye's shall be cleansed. The name of Bubba shall be anathema. We must stop the unbelievers from destroying the sanctity of our restaurants."

    Most churches in christendom whether orthodox or unorthodox would not endorse or condone homosexual practices in their congregations because the bible is against that lifestyle.

    Not a JW but I do understand they do not accept homosexuality or sex outside of marriage as being right either.

    Because homosexuality is a sin against God.

    Because they're trying to be true to their particular version of Biblical literalism.

    Because they're an intolerant cult.

    Even though they are not Christians they understand enough to know that it is sin and goes against his God's law.

    Fundamentalist religion emphasizes conformity, especially over aspects of human nature that are very close to the core of who we are as people such as sexuality. Diversity is antithetical to fundamentalism.
