I personally am a Christian, and here's my two cents on the matter. It says homosexuality is a sin in the bible, but then again so are a lot of things. A lot of things that people I know who claim to be "Christian" do. Sin is sin and there is no greater or lesser sin. And since Jesus died for our sins, homosexuality is washed clean just like everything else. God loves all of his children, no matter what. And in being Christian, we should strive to do the same. Just my perspective.

completely agree, it says that tatoos are a sin, as well as masturbating and many more, it also says to treat your nieghbor as yourself for you have no right to judge, when you are free from sin you may judge anothers, until then you may sit down and treat them as best as you can

Here in America, most would simply interpret that as a sign suggesting that gays cause cancer. That doesn't even sound like something that would be out of place on such a sign.

beside the fact that its posted by anon, im not forcing my beliefs nor homosexuality on anyone, i simply believe theres no reason to hate them, they are no different, and you know what? when im in the locker room with someone of homosexuality oriantation, i do feel awkward, however i also believe that as a fellow human being i should have the respect for them as a person that i should let them do there thing and think no different of them, its called being tollerant, gays are the new blacks (talking martin luther king jr btw), and weather you wanna hold tradition or inovation is your call, im simply stating that i support and think they should be treated no different then anyone else, as is my second amendment right, as is yours to disagree, have a good day

If gays regret being gay and try desperately to not be gay, then yes Christianity teaches that. It does not teach that since all is forgiven anyway you can just keep on sinning to your heart's content.

i do agree its disgusting to supress things that you cant change becuase someone said its wrong, however not all christians do this, for example the pope (yes i understand hes not christian) himself said when asked on the topic of gays, "who am i to judge, they are them i am me, god will sort us all, i am simply here to spread the word and kindness" i used to be part of a church and i remember alot of people there were anti gay, i remember a ww2 vet who was part of the church, he came up one day on the pedastole and said "who here hates gays" a large portion cheered, he then said "if you cheered i want you to stand up, and leave right now... i fought for everyones rights, INCLUDING the right to be gay, god tells us that he without sin should cast the first stone, i know i am not without sin, so who ever here is without sin may judge gays...." no one said anything "he then said so everyone here has sinned? should i yell at you? tell you, that your wrong? no? then sit down. treat all as if yourself" he then sat down and didnt say anything, the pastor came up and agreed and read stories on passages on respecting differences etc...

tldr: point of the story is that just becuase the face of the orginization gets a bad rap, not everyone is bad, im not chirstian im just saying if you must judge, judge those that also judge, not those who help

and before I move on, I don't usually judge the people, I judge the religion. The religions are, for the most part, absolutely disgusting.

Also, Pope Francis, when he lived in Argentina, sent letters to the Argentinian government asking them to make gay marriage illegal. He claimed that it was an attack on God's divine creation and an abomination. Good guy pope is not a good guy.

and Catholics are definitely Christians. I really don't know where the conception that they aren't comes from.

You don't have to believe in the pope, he exists. You can follow him or not follow him. God on the other hand is the question. Does it exist? Doubtful.

The Pope was saying "as long as they try not to be gay, even though they are gay, then who am I to judge." I was a catholic, I know how underhanded that ******* church is.

" gays regret being gay and try desperately to not be gay"

some people, who are raised in certain house holds, feel pressured and guilty about homosexual thoughts, weather it be becuase the parents are heavy christians and force feed it as "bad" or becuase it just so happens the parents are homophobes, or all sorts of cases, a kid might grow up thinking its not normal and that its "bad" as such they have christian camps for being gay, and "fixing it" some people are gay and would rather not be for thus reason, peer pressure if you will

many biological factors and cultural factors lead to the formation of sexual orientation. pressure like that often leads to suppression of the truth, kinda disgusting eh?
idk thats just not right thats like missionaries during the Spanish inquisition, the targets have just changed. :c

Assuming you actually care about the matter. What makes homosexuality any worse a sin than anything else. Its clearly not on the same level as murder and everyone lies but they aren't hated for it. Homosexuality, if you do consider it a sin shouldn't matter because everyone commits sin.

i'm Christian and I have the same belief, as do most of my church friends. Every mentor i've ever had have this view as well. I think that one of the biggest reasons Christians are seen badly is that the only groups that get publicized are the crazy ******* who completely misinterpret the Bible. We seriously hate those guys. But we love them too. It's complicated.

On a similar note, the Bible says that homosexuality is a sin in the Book of Leviticus. The book of Leviticus is not necessarily something that God wanted us to follow to the letter. It's similar to the story of Abraham. God may not want us to do what he says, but he wants to see if we are loyal enough to Him that we would do something like take away someone's rights or kill them. (Back to the Abraham story). Abraham didn't want to sacrifice his son. It was his only son. Most of the Old Testament is a loyalty test.

tl;dr? Most christians don't hate gays, we dislike the fanatics, the biblical laws against gays is a test.
