Title
Homosexuality: Christian Ethics and Psychological Research
Abstract

A proposal for a Christian ethic in homosexuality is presented. This is done through the use of the relevant biblical passages and psychological studies, which bear directly on this area. The distinction is made between the homosexual condition, which is the result of an early and complex learning pattern brought about most typically by a pathogenic family pattern, and homosexual behavior which is the willful engagement in homosexual activity. In the former, the recipient of the condition is passive and involuntary, while in the latter, the recipient of the condition is passive and involuntary, while in the latter, the individual is voluntary practicing homosexual behavior. With this distinction in mind, the ethical implications for the Christian community and society at large are discussed.
