The 10 Commandments don’t address homosexuality.

The 10 Commandments are the foundation to both Judaism and Christianity and don’t say anything about homosexuality.

  1. I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. Do not make an image or any likeness of what is in the heavens above.
  3. Do not swear falsely by the name of the LORD.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.
  5. Honor your father and your mother.
  6. Do not murder.
  7. Do not commit adultery.
  8. Do not steal.
  9. Do not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. Do not covet your neighbor’s wife.

Conservative Christians sometimes put an anti-gay agenda on the 10 Commandments by saying that gay sex is adultery.

Perhaps that’s one reason why many conservatives oppose gay marriage… because by that logic sex within a legal gay marriage is not adultery, therefore not a sin.

Bottom line: The 10 Commandments are the same for both homosexuals and heterosexuals.
