    If He did - then He would've included homosexuality on His list of the ten worst sins - aka the ten commandments.

    The hidden truth about what the Bible REALLY says about GAYS.

    I'm not the only person to have realized that many Old Testament prohibitions were really prophylactic and also intended to increase the reproduction rate. For example:

    circumcision: a healthy decision for a nomadic desert people, that most Semites besides the Hebrews practiced, as well as ancient Egyptians, all living in sandy arid desert or near-desert conditions.

    dietary laws: many of the prohibited foods, like pork, produce illness if not carefully prepared, as they might often not be in simple societies.

    homosexuality: gays don't produce children, which was a first priority for Hebrews in a harsh environment with a high infant mortality rate. Not producing children was a dereliction of your duty to the community.

    men who had lost their penis or testicles could not be Hebrews: same child-producing reason as above.

    And so the list goes. It's as if God (or whoever was the real author of these texts), was using religion to urge a non-scientific, low-technology people to make smart, easy to understand & follow choices about their health and to keep themselves from extinction in a challenging environment.

    As such, they have little application in our modern world. Wash your foreskin with soap & water, cook your pork properly, reduce the infant mortality rate by multiple means, etc, and we no longer need this outdated Biblical guidance.

    Being as blessed as I have been, I know 100% God does not hate homosexuals. But it may sadden him all the hate many gays behold in their hearts, and how they let it blind them.

    He seems to like it when I scream his name when I'm having sex... considering that I haven't been stricken down and seem to have a great number of blessings... I think not only does he not hate homosexuality, I think he highly condones it

    No

    Only men hate, and use their hatred and fear to corrupt and distort faith. To act on their hatred and feel justified in doing so... Its evil. Anyone who thinks god hates anyone. Doesn't know what god is about.


    And when Christ was preaching, he turned no one away which actually did make some of his followers a bit crossed with him, but he'd school em about how wrong that is.

    It hurts god when he sees us hurt and hate each other, or reject him. Just as it would a parent if they saw their children hate and hurt each other. Or reject the parent.

    Those who hurt or destroy the people who love and follow him though, are the people who well... Might not be so lucky in the end.

    I don't believe in the bible. It's a silly book full of contradictions.

    Chuck what you've learned in catholic schools and churches and learn religion on your own the way God intended. You're blessed with a conscious, a brain and a heart, now follow it and set your own rules that make YOU truly happy. Any actions that you put forth must be good and just. Any actions that are harmful to yourself or others, you alone are responsible for the consequences that follow and it is up to you to rectify them.

    It's that simple. Now answer your own question, "Does God really hate you?"

    You tell me what YOU think.

    It's sad, Pattison, that you forgive the Republican party for it's hatebased agenda against gays.
    But you don't forgive gays for hating the Republican party - for the way they've demonized us, and tried to deny us equal rights.

    How about you worry about the hate in your own heart first, eh?

    First, let me say that I am addicted to reruns of The West Wing.

    And, this particular scene should be played over and over again and again to EVERY religious right-wing conservative gay-bashing hateful putz on the planet.

    Thank you for posing this!

    :r:

    For the Bible tells me so is a good movie... hopefully it can serve as some sort of antidote for those gay men who hold the pathological belief that God hates them for being gay... and hopefully it makes Christians reconsider their hateful and discriminatory practices
    As a side note I actually know one of the guys in the movie, he lives in MN.

    to answer the question posed in the topic God, if he exists, does not hate gays. In fact the a proper reading of scriptures shows God loves all people.
    Not only that but the biblical evidence that homosexuality is a sin rests on shaky grounds. The passages of pauls in the new testament that list 'homosexuals' among those condemned to hell have nothing to do with homosexuality per se but are rather about abusive and coercive sex. Paul was referring more to pedastry (the practice of sodomizing young adolescents) and condemning it as an unequal use of power. Paul was condemning a type of homosexual relationship, a condemnation which i think most would approve of, not the whole spectrum of homosexual relations.
    The word 'homosexuality' wasn't even introduced into translations until the late 1800s.
    It was not biblical evidence or thoughtful exegitcal work that led Christians to proclaim that homosexuality is a sin but hate, discrimination, fear, and ignorance of homosexuals.

    Their interpretation of the bible allowed them to hide their homophobia behind religious dogma... much in the same way slave owners justified owning slaves because of select passages from the old and new testament.

    As long as you love yourself, does it really matter who else might hate you?

    Don't belive, won't receive..............

    Sadly many find the easy way out, that if you don't belive you are not accountable. Even in the eyes of the law, ignorance is no excuse.

    Except this isn't the law - which has defined and noted parameters. This is fantasy (at worst) and a belief system (at best).

    Frankly, I give no more credence to the bible or a christian god than I do to the Easter bunny. So, for me, the question is based on a foundation (a belief) that makes it completely irrelevant.
