The other day there was a thread on ATS about some horrific acts perpetrated by Iraqis against homosexuals. I posted saying "Christians... take heed, this is what your hate speech leads to" And everyone thought I was being extreme.

The thing is that the teachings of Jesus Christ overturn a lot of the superstitious nonsense in the old testament so I can not understand why some who call themselves Christian do not notice this contradiction. Jesus taught in Luke 6:27 "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.
Does that not simply overturn any old testament nonsense about hating or stoning anyone to death or killing anyone? People profess to be Christian but do not follow the teachings of Christ. They are not Christian and certainly do not represent the rest of the Christian community with their ignorance and hate speech.

Jones said that, to him, spreading the church's message was "even more important than education itself."

Nowhere in the Bible does it tell you to kill homosexuals. If somebody says "God says this" or "The Bible says this", don't just accept that it's true because there ARE false teachers out there. Look it up yourself and see what God's Word says, and God's Word doesn't tell us to kill anyone.
I was not attempting to paint all Christians in that light. Simply the ones who resort to this kind of arrogance to get their message of "peace" and "love" to the masses.
