|And fags too bitches.|
Now let's get something clear from the start: as an atheist I have an issue with religion, not with homosexuality.
That being said, I also have an issue with people getting upset when some Christians (labeled "bible thumpers", "bible bashers", "christian fundamentalists") dare to utter the notion that God hates fags. Does God really hate fags? Let's see:
Lev 18:22 You must not have sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman; it is a detestable act.
Lev 20:13 If a man has sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman, the two of them have committed an abomination. They must be put to death; their blood guilt is on themselves.
Some will cite Sodom and Gomorrah stuff, but that never explicitly detailed homosexuality. So it is quite clear that God declares homosexuality as a disgusting act, an abomination punishable by DEATH.

Now wait a minute, "christians" who are tolerant about homosexuality will say: Jesus is all about forgiveness and a "love thy neighbor", "hate the sin, not the sinner" kind of guy. While true, Jesus would still have thought of homosexuality as a sin, considering: Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them". This means exactly what it says and means that Leviticus is still relevant. Now some may argue with stuff like: yeah, but that pork eating stuff changed. Well sure it changed, more proof your religion sucks and contains internal contradictions. It doesn't prove your best imaginary buddy God magically became okay with homosexuality.
While Jesus indeed said nothing explicitly about homosexuality, let's see what is otherwise relevant in the New Testament about homosexuality:
Rom 1:24-32 (24) Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. (25) They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. (26) For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, (27) and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed in their passions for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (28) And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done. (29) They are filled with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice. They are rife with envy, murder, strife, deceit, hostility. They are gossips, (30) slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, contrivers of all sorts of evil, disobedient to parents, (31) senseless, covenant-breakers, heartless, ruthless. (32) Although they fully know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them.
1 Cor. 6:9-11 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, (10) thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. (11) Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Tim. 1:8-15 But we know that the law is good if someone uses it legitimately, (9) realizing that law is not intended for a righteous person, but for lawless and rebellious people, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, (10) sexually immoral people, practicing homosexuals, kidnappers, liars, perjurers — in fact, for any who live contrary to sound teaching. (11) This accords with the glorious gospel of the blessed God that was entrusted to me. (12) I am grateful to the one who has strengthened me, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he considered me faithful in putting me into ministry, (13) even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor, and an arrogant man. But I was treated with mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief, (14) and our Lord’s grace was abundant, bringing faith and love in Christ Jesus. (15) This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” — and I am the worst of them!
Yup: after Jesus came along, homosexuality is still a sin, gays still deserve to die and still will not inherit the kingdom of God. Calling people bible thumpers, bible bashers and christian fundamentalists does NOT change the truth, which is that:
- the christian imaginary sky fairy very much hates gay people
- the "christians" who do not think homosexuality is a sin deserving of death, are total hypocrites.
