Question
In terms of friendship, the answer is obvious--we keep a distance--in business, however, there is the question as to What obligation the modern Torah-Observant Jew has towards homosexuals who are open about their sexuality, since in the Diaspora we do business with a variety of individuals and we are not allowed to discriminate. In Leviticus 20:13 we learn that Hashem has instructed Israel to impose the harshest of all possible punishments for the sin of homosexual relations among men. My question is this: If the Halacha does not change with the times, are we to interpret the same punishment is still valid today for a modern day Israel --which is a nationalist state and not a Theocracy? Is this punishment not reserved for a Theocracy whereby the Moshiach is our leader? BECAUSE.....If that punishment were to be followed, it would be devastating to Israel's relations with other countries--especially Europe-- which has a more tolerant policy, and that lack of business that would result would create further damage to our ability to do other mitzvot. Therefore, what is Modern day Israel obligated to in terms of relations with sexually immoral individuals (many of whom are Israelis)

Question
Hello Rabbi, I am a Christian, and as such I am commanded by God to support Israel. I live in a small town with no synagogues or Jewish community centers and all I have to donate is my time and energy, as my finances are spoken for before I get them, is there anyway a gentile like myself can show support for Israel? I’m a pretty crafty guy as I can sew, crochet, knit, cross stitch, and design patterns for these kinds of projects. If you can think of anything that might be helpful please let me know. Sincerely, Craig SGT. U.S. Army (Ret)
