What Does "Gay" Mean?

"Gay" originally meant to be happy or joyous.  It was then adopted by the homosexual
community to describe their lifestyle because they did not like being called "queer" or other
ephitets that indicated they were odd, weird or perverted.  "Gay" seemed to denote that they
were happy and joyous in the choice they had made to have sex with the same sex.

But, do you know what "gay" means in the vocabulary of young people since it has been
adopted by the homosexuals? If something is "gay" it is weird, odd or perverted.  It has taken
on the same meaning as "queer."

Abraham Lincoln is credited with the following riddle.  If you call a tail a leg, how many legs
does a dog have?  Four.  Just because you call a tail a leg does not mean it is one.

No matter what you call homosexuality it is contrary to nature, and contrary to the laws of God.  
It is sin.

But, the good news is that sin can be repented of and forgiven.  Then, and only then, can the
sinner be happy and joyous.

"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 homosexuals, nor
sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will
inherit the kingdom of God.  And such were some of you.  But you were washed, but you
were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of
our God." [1 Corinthians 6:9-11]
