It is. Failure to allow people to be themselves through legislation, legal discrimination IS oppression. Caring what others do such that you feel the need to legally restrict them IS hate. You don't like it. Tough for you.

ETA: We have had to deal with the religion and conservative view of "normal" for long enough. Time to end that BS.

You just responded to a celibate gay person with a remark that doesn't make any sense.

Being gay is not a "behavior".

Besides, you're not in any position to "approve" of anyone else.

I said there are areas of some Christian majority countries that engage in stoning.

Stoning is alive and well in the rural areas of Uganda.

Life in prison was substituted for death penalty in anti homosexual legislation in 2014.

Many former British colonies in Africa impose harsh consequences on those engaging in same sex relations.

Because the left are bullies who won't dare go against anyone who would hit them back.
" Turn the other cheek" is an open invitation for them in their minds.

And that's a far cry from throwing gays off of buildings, which the Left conveniently ignores.


I'm not a Christian...... I'm not even particularly religious.

But equating modern Christianity with much of Islam, which is still stuck in the dark ages......

Is not just hypocritical, it's laughingly disingenuous.

All good points.

Because in this country, christians in power will try to use that governmental power to force their religious beliefs onto gay people. Like that woman who was a county clerk and wouldn't give gays marriage licenses. If a person who is muslim or jewish did the same thing, I would consider them using their government assigned powers incorrectly. Do you have an examples of that?

Please point to a bill introduced in the US House or Congress in the last 10 years that would jail gay people for being gay?

Please give an example?

Who appointed you and the Left the sole arbiters of what constitutes "hate"?


And I'm not even talking about legislation......

I'm talking about attitudes of the Church and it's members, Christian owned businesses etc.
