Well. You will just have to go to the bible and study the matter and than come up with a conclusion-.

It honestly depends what you believe. As an atheist, I don't believe there is such a thing as a sin, so I would say its absolutely fine if you are gay. However, if you are religious then it depends. Some people say that God disagrees with homosexuality and therefore would say that it is a sin, however other people believe that God loves people unconditionally and will still love you even if you are gay, so it isn't a sin. And a few people are in between and say it is okay to be gay but not to act on those feelings. Maybe you should research what the teachings of your particular religion say about this and make a decision from there.

Personally, I think there is nothing wrong with being gay. People claim that God is a loving God, and if that is the case then he should love you regardless of your sexual orientation.

You say you are atheist, but in your profile you reference being wiccan, doesn't that mean you believe in a female goddess?

I find the pagan religions fascinating, particularly Wicca, and I agree with a lot of their concepts, however I don't believe in any deity, so I still consider myself atheist. Apologies if my profile is unclear.

Yes being gay is a sin. 

God has given us rules of living and told what is right and what is wrong. HE make us sensible enough to choose between the two and if one chooses the wrong way it considered as sin. 

If being gay wasn't a sin and there was nothing wrong in it then HE would make this a custom that two people of same sex can marry each other, males with males and females with females. But there is nothing like it male can marry only female and then they grow their family.

It is not a choice to be gay. Its in people's genes. If god made people, and thinks homosexuality is a sin, why would he have made gay people?

I know that the bible references male homosexuality to be sinful. However there is debate on how the bible references women's sexuality.

Romans 1:26-27 CJB

"This is why God has given them up to degrading passions; so that their women exchange natural sexual relations for unnatural; and likewise the men, giving up natural relations with the opposite sex, burn with passion for one another, men committing shameful acts with other men and receiving in their own persons the penalty appropriate to their perversion.

Of course not!  Your sexual orientation depends on the quantity of certain chemicals you were exposed to in the womb.  Being homosexual is completely a biological thing.

Sexuality is not a choice, it is a genetic condition. It is classified as a "sin" in fundamental Christianity, but if God made you homosexual, then why is it a sin? It's only a sin in the ignorant minds of those that chose to believe it

Of course not.

In the opinion of fundamentalist Christians then, yes, it is a sin. But then, in their opinion almost anything you enjoy doing is a sin.

We can't help the way we're born.
