Christians Are Gays /Christians Love Gays
Did you know that many Christians are openly gay?
Did you know that many Christian churches welcome gays?
There are 24 churches in North America alone, that are LBGT-affirming Christian denominations.
Many are either major traditional denominations or offshoots of major denominations. Among the 24 include:
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Episcopal Church (United States)
Presbyterian Church (USA)
United Church of Christ
Ecumenical Catholic Church
Affirming Pentecostal Church International
The notion that Christians are gay-haters or homophobes is simply not true. While there are individual Christians who take the personal view that homosexuality is a sin, and while there are congregations where it is taught that homosexuality is a sin, those views are a small minority against the vast array of LBGT accepting parishes.
Even for those Christian churches that condemn homosexuality as a sin, it could be postulated that even fewer are actually homophobic or gay-hating. That is because Christ said the second most important commandment was to love your neighbor as yourself, and so, if you are Christian by most church's standards, you aren't supposed to hate anyone. If a Christian is someone who follows Christ, there shouldn't be many Christians that would argue that Christ's own words aren't the ultimate authority.
This does not mean there aren't churches comprised of individuals that protest homosexuality in some ways, or that there aren't churches that condone protesting homosexuality. The goal of those people/churches is either in the loving effort to save individuals from what they believe is a sin (which is actually in their minds for the homosexual's benefit), and/or because they don't want what they consider a sin and a sexual deviation to become widely socially accepted, at the disadvantage (in their minds) of their children and the whole society.
A church or a group of people who call themselves Christian and set out to inflict emotional or physical pain on someone for being homosexual -no matter how this may be paraded by the media- is such an extreme minority that it is actually ridiculous to view all Christians in this manner.
It is actually more common to find a Roman Catholic priest accused of sexual molestation or of being secretly gay despite his vow of chastity, than it is to find a whole church that condones actively attacking a gay person like the Westboro Baptist people.
What Christians do you know personally that would do anything to hurt a homosexual ?
No matter your position on homosexuality, and no matter your position on Christianity, being both Christian and gay is not an oxymoron....because certainly with certainty...gay Christians exist en masse.
