Leviticus 18:22 has been generally interpreted as prohibiting some or all homosexual acts, although which precise acts, and in which situations, is a matter of ongoing scholarly debate. For the Black church homosexuality is not a matter of debating anything a scholar says it is a matter of what the Bible says. The Black church don't take sinful acts to heart (births out of wedlock, adultery, fornication, cheating...) because it seems that all have sinned and have fallen short of the Glory of God.

Abomination on the other-hand is a different story in the Black church. Theologically speaking, sin describes an act against the will of God (a lie, an act of fornication, etc...). An abomination describes a lifestyle against the will of God (a lying tongue, homosexuality, etc...). Illegitimate children are a sin but homosexuality is an abomination. So how would the Black church and its people digest two men dancing at the presidential Gala if that be the case with Pete Buttigieg a homosexual, politician and candidate for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 United States presidential election. Buttigieg was a Mayor, a graduate of Harvard College and Oxford University, attending the latter on a Rhodes Scholarship. He also is the only candidate of the top four who was in the military. Regardless of his sexuality he is a man with an impeccable resume.

Just about every Black family has someone gay in the family. And all Black churches have either a gay Black organist or choir director and many gays in the pews. But homosexuality is a big pill to swallow because it seems to be an abomination. The New Testament under grace says otherwise. Under grace homosexuality is no different than stealing but stealing is ok according to the Black church frame of mind because it is a sin verses an abomination. "Oh! What A Tangled Web We Weave When First We Practice To Deceive."

I am gay friendly and I do recognize homosexuality as a symptom of the DNA but I do feel that if a male presidential candidate has the audacity to dance with another male they have pushed pass the boundaries that will aggravate all society. Overall some of Society's people whether it is in the Black church or not

are ok with the LGBTTQQIAAP community but they are not on board for showing any outward public affections between men.
