You can't fix what is not broken.

The good news is that there is a small wave of understanding that is growing via the younger generation of Christians that will continue to get larger and larger as it gains momentum.

The days of "innocent bigotry" against gays in the Christian community are numbered.

Sure, he took the FACT that there were a lot of gay men in the upper levels of the Nazi party when it started and gained power and twisted it into a false narrative, but what you tried to imply was false nonsense.
He says it is the worst sin that there is, worse than mass murder, on tape. Then hes surprised they want the death penalty or jail time? That is a stretch beyond belief.

Regarding fat preachers...

Almost no one considers the SBC (Slavery before Christianity) churches to be ethical role models. They exist as a cultural rallying point for southern old stock Americans.

It's better to simply stay quiet about it and deflect or redirect.
The issue is that there is no coalition of muslims in america pushing ant-gay legislation. There is with christians blocs It is pretty simple.

Are you emotionally invested in anti-democratic forces in Russia and that are POTUS is cozying up to them? My guess is no. My guess is your position is to not get involved.

The ugly truth about Sharia law

God is very straightforward about this not we Muslims, not subjective, the Sharia is very clear about it, the punishment for homosexuality, bestiality or anything like that is death, Muslim cleric Sheikh Khalid Yasin said in a YouTube video posted online. We dont make any excuses about that, its not our law its the Koran.
Koran written by cave dwellers from the 7th century and followed by illiterate masses of the 21st century. Ignorance is so dangerous.

Also there are lgbt organizations here that do work for rights in the Mideast and to get people out on asylum.

Liberty for all regardless of orientation is not limited to Christianity. The premise of the thread is ludicrous.

Find me any gay person who is OK with someone killing someone for being gay because of any religion.

And the Bible says if your son is a drunkard and disobedient take him to the town elders. And if they agree them stone him to death.
