You say they embrace sin, but the truth is that they just don’t believe in your god.

Why on Earth is that a bad idea?!?!?!?!?!!?
One of the greatest shames, I believe, is the attitude of the church towards homosexuals. To simply ban a group of non-violent & generally friendly people from a knowledge of the Holy is pretty darn terrible, and if they were to be welcomed in with their partners (rather than a marriage in its formal sense), then just like everyone else they could check their sexuality at the door & come to worship, to learn, and to receive counsel & prayer.
There are people who cannot have sex for various physical reasons and they marry, People can love without sex. When you get really old sex often hurts for many Women even if a guy can keep sailing! Happiness does not revolve around our genitals as the movies would lead to believe.
While they might not accept them as members, I don't know a single church that would tell homosexuals that they're not allowed to enter the church and worship with everyone else.

I think the actual sin is sexual promiscuity.
LGBT lifestyles tend to be more promiscuous than the monogamous relationships condoned in scripture.
That's not to say that promiscuous 'straight' lifestyles are any more or less sinful.
Sin is sin.
Gays stop being in the tolerance category when they do things like you're doing and try to bend the beliefs of others to make them feel better about themselves.
