Religious gays -homophobic christians
What I cannot understand, why do Christian ALWAYS have such a problem with gay christians? What is it?
Did Jesus not die for us aswell?
What is the difference - one steels, one lies, one cheats on his wife/husband; etc. Is that ok because i don't here them talk about these matters or issues but they are So quick to judge. Could some one please help me - I am looking for the verse in the Bible where God appointed judges - those who can say who whill make it or who can go in or who must stay outside. please i would like to have this urgently

Dear Kevin,
Sadly, some people who call themselves Christians, are exceedingly narrow-minded and uncharitable towards others, and include homophobia among their prejudices. I say "call themselves" because my understanding was that according to the Bible, Christ set an outstanding example of charity and lack of prejudice, and being non-judgemental, , and it sems sad that those who most loudly announce that they follow Him, so often so conspicuously fail to follow His most excellent example in this respect.
I don't know if someone here can provide you with the text ref you seem to be seeking, but maybe someone else can. Be proud of who you are, and make sure you work towards becoming the very best You that you can be, rather than a tepid imitation of whatever someone else's expectations would push you to be. And check out on a good websearch, there are surely some eloquent gay christian sites which would be supportive and understanding.
