Should gay people hate Christians ?
« on: Yesterday at 12:38:54 AM »
If you are really gay you should not hate Christians who simply do not believe being gay is possible
You know the truth about you. That you have never had a attraction to opposite sex
Have you tried to turn to Christ and let him fix the deviations and let you have proper attraction to opposite sex ?
If the Christian does nothing to exclude you from life why is there hate ?
The Christian should not be a coward and must confess if asked if unrepentant gays can go to heaven he must say according to the scripture no even if he is hated

No one should hate anyone. Forgiveness is necessary both for good of the person who wrongs one and for the good of one oneself. This is both a spiritual and a medical fact.

There are lots of people that hate Christians, regardless of their sexual proclivities.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

It would be proper to ask that in a gay forum, not here.

We are so quick at judging homosexuals because they practice their unlawful sex, and yet, many heterosexual Christians practice unlawful sex with their girlfriends/boyfriends, or whatever, and we think that is not much of a big deal, and even though God made it clear that both of these groups will burn in hell.

If we want to focus on telling homosexuals that they should not practice their sexual life, then first we should tell heterosexual Christians that they must respect the sacrament of marriage.

whatever hapened to "hate the sin, but love the sinner"? that saying goes for straight people, and gay people alike. Gay people shouldn't hate Christians, but homosexuals should hate some of the sins committed towards them like anger, unforgiveness, violence, murder, cussing at them, etc. Likewise Christians shouldn't hate the homosexuals, but they shouldchate sin of sodomy, and tell them the truth in love, when gay people ask Christians what is Holy Tradition stance on these issues.

Something I have encountered among many gay people is a sense of downright contempt for all things religious, but especially for the Christian religion. This isn't surprising as many churches, especially evangelical churches, have failed to welcome those with same-sex attraction, making gay individuals feel like outcasts.

On the other hand, I think many of these people are extrapolating from their own very limited experience with religion - a baptist Church in a small town in Mississippi is going to very different from, say, an Orthodox or Catholic parish in Boston. Additionally, many of these individuals simply don't want anyone telling them that they are required to practice temperance or chastity, and so confirmation bias plays a large role in the way they experience and describe religious communities. Of course, this is the kind of temptation to which anyone one of us might be prone. Messy world.

True. But there seems to be particularly virulent form of this hatred in the gay community.

Rather than slinging accusations at gay people as a faceless mass, perhaps one could take a moment to give a thought to (maybe even thanks for) the countless members of the gay community who do not hate religion in general or Christianity in particular and who play an active role in the life of their church local, maybe even yours--even Roman Catholic or Orthodox.
