Such Were Some of You

This past January, a family bakery, constrained by faith, courteously but firmly declined the request for a same-sex affair wedding cake. The bride’s mother countered with the popular but unsubstantiated assertion that homosexually is genetic and alleged biblical references claiming that her daughter was created that way and that the marriage was appropriate.

Are there any such biblical references? To the contrary, Scripture clearly affirms that any lifestyle regardless of sin preference is "alterable":
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind [G733: arsenokoites (a sodomite)], Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
"... nor abusers of themselves with mankind.... And such were some of you."

Unfortunately, as a consequence of the initiation of official action, gay intimidation, boycotts, and even death threats, the bakery closed for good.
