I'm sorry. I don't think a Buddhist is the appropriate person to be giving "accurate" instruction to a Christian. Also, you seem to be forgetting Romans 1:21-27.

I have posted the Wikipedia as well as the Websters definition for Homosexuality below. Jesus said not to be sexually immoral and homosexuals definitely fall into this category as even the definition below explains that what it means to be homosexual is almost entirely dependent on the sexual aspect not Love but only sexual attraction

Homosexuality (from Ancient Greek ὁμός, meaning "same", and Latin sexus, meaning "sex") is romantic attraction, sexual attraction or sexual behavior between members of the same sex or gender. As an orientation, homosexuality refers to "an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectionate, or romantic attractions" primarily or exclusively to people of the same sex. "It also refers to an individual's sense of personal and social identity based on those attractions, behaviors expressing them, and membership in a community of others who share them."[1][2]
1ho·mo·sex·u·al adjective ˌhō-mə-ˈsek-sh(ə-)wəl, -ˈsek-shəl
: sexually attracted to people of the same sex

: based on or showing a sexual attraction to people of the same sex

Full Definition of HOMOSEXUAL

Civilized society huh? Where it's okay to kill babies by the millions and that's acceptable but when someone murders a pregnant woman, often it's ruled a double homicide? Yeah, I think I'll stick with what the Bible REALLY says thank you.
