Not truth, not morality, not hope, none of that.
Its simply associated with being anti-homosexual, or the club for homophobes.
When asked by The Barna Group what words or phrases best describe Christianity, the top response among Americans ages 16-29 was
“antihomosexual.” For a staggering 91 percent of non-Christians, this was the first word that came to their mind when asked about the Christian
faith. The same was true for 80 percent of young churchgoers. (The next most common negative images? : “judgmental,” “hypocritical,” and
“too involved in politics.”)
So Congratulations to the religious leaders and outspoken religious folks out there...your message of not liking "the gay" is heard loud and clear.
And also congratulations on completely isolating any potential future for your religion..lose the youth, you lose it all..
Later research, documented in Kinnaman’s You Lost Me, reveals that one of the top reasons 59 percent of young adults with a Christian
background have left the church is because they perceive the church to be too exclusive, particularly regarding their LGBT friends. Eight million
twenty-somethings have left the church, and this is one reason why.
I am not saying Christians should rewrite their bible, but rather, its time to put perspective on it.
Being gay is one sin, which is alright should you accept christs sacrifice
So is lying. People lie all the time.
And lets say you somehow are without sin, you are STILL going to hell unless you do the catch all, which is ultimately just accepting
So, you lot got a choice...kick out the old fogies whom are banging their fists on tables saying we gotta hate "the gay' because they are all gay n
stuff, and install some reasonable minded young ones whom see being gay about as damning as telling someone those jeans don't make them look fat
(cough)....focus on the sin, and your just a bunch of judgemental jerks...focus on the love of christ and his sacrifice for all the people and the
idiotic things we do, and you may win some back over time (once you shut up your anti-gay idiots).
-not gay, don't care either way what others do, but bigotry is bigotry..and its a (well deserved) dying trait that deserves no respect or
