You no doubtfully have some good and bad answers here, but to me, most did not answer your question. (some did). I can only tell you my opinion, and we ALL seem to have one !! As with so MANY beliefs from the Bible and /or God's word ,come with living and learning and experiences down life's road.
I saw a hermaphrodite in the nursing home where my precious Daddy resided for a short while. I helped change his/her diaper. He was more masculine so I (as his family did) will refer to him as "him" through out this answer. In Ecclesiastes there is the chapter about "Nothing new under the sun"! Once I saw this precious young man's drawn & withered, brain dead, vegatative body, I Fully believe that since God indeed "allows" a person to be born with BOTH sexes then WHY is it sssooooo impossible to believe a person could be born with sexes that ! APPEAR! different than ours, man or woman??? WHAT determines what YOU are ? When you look at a person and see feminine attrabutes, you say "That is a WOMAN.". Or you if you see a masculine looking person you say "That is a MAN." If one person is in bed with a homosexual/lesbion (and they were BORN feeling that way), they are indeed a man and a woman ! IF we ALL had our genetic DNA stamped on our foreheads (X or XY and a few xyy!) like the poor people, homosexual/lesbian, blind, anorexia, fat, ugly, Or God forbid, cancer, reseism, rapests, aids, murderers, sreiel killers child molesters, alcholics, starving, homeless, drug abusers and the ever present TERRORISTS,and the many,many, many other things we persecute each other for, I have Faith that there would be LESS judgeing with more Praying, for each other! (I did not say that we have to condone some of these behavio, Thank you for reminding me NOT to judge ANYONE today !!! (or forever,) But since I'm human..... These Bible verses of old still STANDS TRUE !!! "YOU WHO ARE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE!" and "When you have done unto the least of these, you have done unto ME!!!" We are not THE JUDGE. That's GOD's JOB! (thank goodness). If we put as much time into LIVING and LEARNING God's word, as we do debating it, we would be much happier people.
And, no, I do not think this long answer is debating. I think "Where two or more are gathered in My Name, There shall I also be!".(saith the Lord)
Everyone has a right to there own opinion. This just happens to be mine.:)
God Bless Us One and ALL!!! Dixie
