Homosexuality and the Torah

LGBTQ people are always trying to force their way into Judaism. Trying to rewrite laws and perverse scripture to fit their agenda. They have succeeded in Reform, Conservative, Open Orthodox and to a lesser measure Modern Orthodox and won't be happy til they spoil all of Judaism.  In a democratic society you have the right to do whatever floats your boat but acting on this transgression is against Torah, PERIOD. God gave us these verses for homosexuality:

Leviticus 18:22: You shall not lie with a man as one lies with a woman, it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13: A man who lies with a man as one lies with a woman, they have both done an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon themselves

..for transgenderism:

Deuteronomy 22:5: Male garb shall not be on a woman, and a man shall not wear a woman's garment, for anyone who does so is an abomination of HaShem.

..and for not following other people away from Torah:

Leviticus 20:23: Do not follow the traditions of the nation that I expel from before you, for they did all of these and I was disgusted with them.

     God's meaning is perfectly clear/irrevocable and I am quite sure he was well aware of all the ins and outs of homosexuality when he gave them. It is not up for argument and anyone who tries to push their agenda on this site, community, movement will be banned immediately upon being reported. (In saying that, if you find yourself somehow tempted to break these laws but abstaining and wish to talk to a rabbi or someone then by all means do so. It is the act not the inclination that is against the law for we are all tempted by one sin or another at some point in our lives. Overcoming them is how we find our strengths.) Whether Noahide or Jewish the law makes plain what is expected and it was not meant to be dissolved over time. Indeed I believe the present dissolution of the law is bringing us closer to the destruction of mankind. Anyway in closing, this site is not a pedestal for the LGBTQ movement so if you are of that creed then there is a plethora of places where you can mix with like minded individuals rather than try to enforce your will upon others that don't feel the same. Common courtesy is all I ask and it is not homophobia but a simple desire to hold God's law and we have the right to abstain as much as you have the right to live as you wish, at least until the Day of HaShem.
