    This is in reference to the comment: Jesus never said a word about homosexuality.

    Read Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, Romans 1:26-28, 1 Corinthians 6:9, Genesis 2:4. There are more examples in the Bible.

    In John 14:9, Jesus said in seeing him (Jesus) you have seen the Father. Jesus was the one who created all of existence. That is how we know that He and God the Father are of one mind on the subject of homosexuality.

    It is satan’s ploy to trick people into believing that “gay people” are a natural part of God’s creation and future kingdom.

    Just thought you should know.

      Consider the the bible has been translated and changed many times, was greatly influenced by the time periods it was created, is full of inconsistencies, so it is entirely possible that those verses were referring to something else. Also, it has dozens of rules that we do not even consider following in a modern society that nobody seems to be called out as a “sinner” for. Also, one thing consistent throughout the teachings of Jesus is the command to love your neighbor and to not pass judgement. It is my belief that condemning and judging people who have never harmed you because of who they are is a greater sin than almost anything else. Rights for gay people are not a thing of evil, they are an essential part of a compassionate and secular modern society, and I believe that being gay or support gay rights do not by any means make you a bad Christian.
