The opinion I just expressed is not at all over-stated, and I am certainly not scolding people. Such depraved behavior actually does go on in Buddhism, and that is why Buddhism cannot prosper.
Although I could have avoided mentioning that matter, there is another, more serious issue concerning all mankind, which I must bring up. That is, homosexuals nowadays are getting more rampant all the time. In New York and San Francisco, for instance, there are several hundred thousand homosexuals. These days, even govern-ment officials openly admit to being homosexual, support homosexuality, and proclaim that the society should support homosexual marriages. You should know that homosexuality is an evil practice which goes against the principles of Heaven and Earth and contradicts human obligations. Behind it are demons, ghosts, and goblins egging people on, fanning the flames, telling people to head straight for the gates of the hells.
Earlier I mentioned the stupid love between a man and a woman, and their oath, "In the heavens, we vow to be birds who share a wing. On the earth, we vow to be trees whose branches intertwine." The marriage of a man and a woman is the accepted custom everywhere. As it is said, "The matter between a man and a woman is the great obligation of mankind." If you're following the road of birth and death, then getting married and having children does not go against the way of Heaven. On the other hand, homosexuality is a perverted behavior which contradicts natural law, human ethics, and biological structure. Its retribution is to be born as a Siamese twin in the next life. In the world now, we have heard about the birth of Siamese twins for some time. In the near future, many Siamese animal twins will appear. Since these people have committed perverse acts of evil and engaged in the most vulgar and depraved sort of conduct, they will inevitably undergo rebirth in the lower path of animals.
Therefore, if you have not studied Buddhism and you recklessly break rules without any scruples, you can still be excused. However, if you have studied Buddhism, you must deeply understand the principles of cause and effect, and avoid the slightest violation. Take heed! Be careful!
