I just gotta wonder what bible some of you are reading that gives you the right to discriminate against gay people? I see alot of "christians" who are against gay rights, preach on how wrong it is and they are going to hell, ect. Where is it that gives you the right to mistreat anyone due to their "sin"? I'm a christian, I believe in the bible. We are all sinners. No one of our sins are bigger than the other. There are multiple verses that tell us not to judge, and to love one another.
1Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
1Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
James 4 11:12
11Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
12There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
Ephesians 4-29 and 32
29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
7So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
1 john 3-17
17But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
1 john 4-11
11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
There are more but that should be enough to make the point. So how do get past those verses?

Hey anon, this is for you: 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

"The first known appearance of homosexual in print is found in an 1869 German pamphlet by the Austrian-born novelist Karl-Maria Kertbeny, published anonymously, arguing against a Prussian anti-sodomy law"

Leviticus isn't really the best source to justify your hatred against homosexuals, especially since it suggests killing your children for being disobedient and commiting mass murders against anyone who does not follow the word of God exactly as you do. You also seemed to miss the point of all the other versus instructing you to love your neighbors as God loves you and leave the judging up to him. Just sayin.....
