It’s a violation to God’s command written in Romans 1.
Jan Rhais L. Amantiad

Not all religions think so. Not even all Christian denominations do. But that’s okay. I was mostly referring to being attracted to both genders, which is not actually a sin. According to many Christian denominations acting on those might be, but otherwise it would just be another temptation. And yet, it is also stated that we are all sinners and the path to God can only be found through Christ, for Christ died to atone for mankind’s sins. While that does not mean that one should go about being a terrible person and murdering people left and right, it does mean that no one is lost to God, as God is Love and God is merciful. You live your life as best you can, and if that means that you avoid acting on any attractions, so be it. But remember that a person’s sins or lack there of is between themselves and God. “if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matthew 6: 14–15)It is Gods place to judge, and “the Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we rebelled against him” (Daniel 9:9).

Of course, I’m asexual and have no desire for anyone, so I don’t have to worry about this in particular. I’m also Episcopalian and we allow LGBT weddings. We also allow the eating of pork (even though Leviticus 11: 7–8 states “And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.”) but we

believe in God, father almighty, maker of heaven and Earth, and of all that is , seen and unseen.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; He shall come again, in glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And We believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

But, of course, that is just the tenets of my religion. You might not believe the same. That is fine. :)
