    Jesus Had WAY Harsher Words For Smug, Superior, Religious People Than For Sinners

    Is homosexuality a sin? I don't know. Maybe? Maybe not? Both sides of the debate have some extremely valid theological points. What I DO know, however, is that whether it is or isn't is really beyond the point anymore. There is NO way that the God I love condones the way gay...

    My Attempt At Intelligent Thought On The Issue

    I am unsure if I would call myself "pro- gay" but I fail to see what is so "Holy" or for that matter, "Conservative", about marginalizing people based on one aspect of their lifestyle. Maybe, I would believe the religious right's assertion that marriage is, always was, and...

    I find it annoying when Christian members will

    bash people for their right to get married. They say it's in the Bible so it's wrong, yet it also says in the Bible that tattoo's are wrong but they aren't out protesting tattoo shops. On top of that it also claims worshipping a false God is the biggest sin, and yet we get...

    I heard about a Christian family

    who went to a restaurant and refused to tip the waiter because he was gay. Isn't that sad? I feel so bad for people who are put down by such misguided believers in Christ. I love the Lord, and I truly believe he wants us to love and accept everyone with open arms. I was once...

    What? You Love Gays? God Hates Gays!

    WrongI don't know what kind of satanic, hateful god you worship, that says it's okay for you to hate anyone, but I worship my God who loves everyone, and who also says it's a sin to hate anyone.I quote: This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into...

    As a kid, my parents

    and grandparents were so against homosexuals. That's how they were raised and that's how they raised us. At the age of 13, I had a friend who told me she was a lesbian. Somehow word got around, and my parents found out about it and they banned me from seeing her. I wasn't...

    I Can'T Be The Only One

    I'm a Christian, and as a child and up to this day, I've been taught that God loves all his children. No matter what. But hey, I can't prove it, I can only believe it. That's my God anyways :)

    If I were to find out any of my children are

    LGBT, I would love them no matter what. I was always taught to love and accept others. And my children are going to learn to love and accept others. And it doesn't matter if they are LGBT. God loves everybody. I am bisexual and have family members that are homosexual. And we...

    Love Knows No Difference

    I am a strong believer of the Christian faith. But I am also a strong believer in the saying "Love Knows No Difference". Girl and girl, guy and guy, guy and girl. It's all the same to me love is love, if a couple is cute guy and girl it should be no different as girl and girl, or...

    Disturbed By Homophobia On Ep

    I was given to understand that Christianity was about love. Recently I have had the misfortune to come across a user on here who is spouting vile rubbish about how gay people are worse than animals and God hates them! The vehemence of these comments have disturbed me. Now this...

    And the rights for everyone else too.

    I apologise that there are a lot of people using Christianity to justify their cruel views on the world, and I do not believe that it is Christian to hate gay people as we are meant to love each other no matter what. The most recurring theme in the Bible is love and acceptance...
