I don't personally agree with the lifestyle, but I don't believe in persecution and bashing either. It's not our place to judge. Our only mission is to love. God doesn't hate ANYONE. No matter what "Christian" says otherwise.
Also, if you're looking at middle eastern penalties for so-called "crimes", you WILL find absurdity. Whether it be homosexuality or theft.
Be well, my friend.

There were laws against homosexual behavior in Rome before the Christians showed up.
The fact that homosexuality is even an issue is due to religious scribbles.
Another example of the divisive qualities inherent to the abrahamic cults.

Showing hatred against gays is NOT doing unto others as they would have them do unto themselves. Most people do not want to be criticized just for being who they are and yet they continue to keep criticizing others for living their lives...
Most Gay people are not trying to take straight marriage away, or trying to stop straights from talking about their sexuality. They just want to have the freedom to live their lives and be able to express their sexuality as straight people are able to...
and before someone says "What about Gay Pride Parades?"
Well there is a reason it exists. It is a reaction from straight people being able to express their love in public by kissing and holding hands while gays were (and still are) suppressed in that way..
