1- "We hate how communists sacrifice the individual in name of the group. That's why we do the exact same thing to gay people."

2- "Homosexuality isn't natural!" [is told it is] "Ah, but we shouldn't follow animals!"

3- [Random passage about Jesus' psychotic outbursts] "You're taking things out of context!" [then proceeds to use biblical passages against homosexuality without considering the cultural meaning]

4- "Pride is a sin!" [then proceeds to use "I'm proud to be a christian!"]

5- "We respect free will! That's why we prevent gay marriage from even being a possibility!"

6- "You heathens act so holier than thou, thinking you know the truth! That's why we are the chosen ones, and you're only going to be saved if you think exactly like us!"

7- "We must do charity! That's why we just pray istead of donating like those heathens do!"

8- "You totally shouldn't lump us with Tomás de Torquemada! That's why we lump all non-christian people in the same pile of evil heathens!"

9- "Haha, you think you can justify racism by saying you have black friends?" [then proceeds to justify homophobia by claiming to have gay friends]

10- "Our religion is totally not a lifestyle! Your incurable sexuality, on the other hand, totally is!"

You didn't even link to a rebuttal of my claims. What do you hope to accomplish, besides just reminding me why I wrote this?

Your first point could not be more ironic. Keep trying, but I think you'll find that people are people, regardless of anything.

I'm a christian, so what?
If you're gay, who cares?
If you commit a sin, it's not my business.
If I commit a sin, it's none of your business.
Plenty of people go to church, so what?
Plenty of people don't go to church, so what?
If a person is straight, gay, bi, confused or apathetic, it doesn't mean anything. It really isn't important enough to care about. It doesn't matter. It carries as much importance as being a vegetarian.
DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL SHIT !

You're not a christian then. Your book says homosexuality is an abomination. You dont believe in the bible, therefore you are not a christian.

First of all, I'm not going to argue with or insult you because that's more than likely what you want me to do.
Or there is someone else watching the comments waiting for someone to do so. So instead, I'm simply going to put forth my own opinion, and I'll do my best not to make any judgments as to who is right and who is wrong.

To start with, I happen to be a person who does not believe in arbitrarily placing people in groups based on sexuality, personality, habits or interests. I'm not quite comfortable just lumping religious groups together, because in every religion there tends to be smaller facets and denominations. So you'll rarely if ever find me referring to every person who calls him or herself "Christian" or "atheist" or "Muslim" or what have you as simply "the Christians," "the atheists," or "the Muslims." Every person is individual and should be treated as such.
So obviously, not every Christian person believes these things you've pointed out about every gay person.
I won't deny that there are Christians who fit your descriptions exactly, but there are hypocrites and hateful people everywhere, unfortunately.

I am not an advocate for much of anything except for the philosophies of love and imagining other people as the complex individuals that they are, and not just paper-thin masks that fit whatever situation a person wants to place them in.
I realize that your motives for writing this probably come from some very negative experiences you have had, which makes me very sorry, and I hope you can meet decent people who might even be Christians.

Why is it always christians that are being lumped together like this? not all christians think that way and you are doing the same thing to christians as you say they are doing to others by saying what you are. you are being just as hypocritical.

It would have been better had you chosen another title than this, since I am a Christian myself, and I certainly do not have anything against homosexuals. It's slightly offending that you generalize the people that practice Christianity as homophobes and hypocrites. I know certain Christians say these things, but not all. So please, before you stereotype the whole Christian community, please get to know us better. Even though we practice the same religion, we all have different beliefs, and doesn't mean we think the same way. Next time, please don't judge if you don't know all the facts. Although I don't disagree with the fact that some ARE hypocrites.
