Question: What is the Jehovah's Witnesses Position on Homosexuality?
Many denominations have differing views on homosexuality. The Jehovah's Witnesses has its own views. What is the position of the Jehovah's Witnesses on homosexuality?
Answer: Jehovah's Witnesses have taken the stance that God intended marriage to be between a man and woman and that homosexuality is a sin. They also feel that God disapproves of those who practice homosexuality, and feel that same-sex marriages are also unacceptable. They feel that homosexuals can learn to abstain from the behavior and that God can help homosexuals overcome their same-sex attractions and homosexual tendencies so that they can gain God's blessings.
