The Ultimate Christian Argument for Love for All. Following A Tradition of Standing on the Side of Love

At the core of every religious tradition is love of humanity and love of creator -- not hatred for your neighbors. 

Please stop exporting hate in the name of religion.

Follow your book. You are blaspheming against your professed religion and breaking what Jesus said to be the greatest law when challenged by his servants:
Matthew 22:34
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

You are not loving your neighbor, which is part of the highest law of the religion you profess to follow. Stop hating or stop calling yourselves Christian. You can not do both in good faith.

Another story that is commonly used to say that gays should not love is Sodom and Gomorrah. This is a misuse and misapplication of the story. They had been homosexual for years and God had let them live. They were only smitten when they had gangraped their visitors, breaking the ancient value of respecting your guests. This is a misapplication and hence should be discarded.

The final place in the Bible that is used against Gay Rights is in Leviticus saying how men will not have sex with men. This is in the chapter preceding the rules for offerings, which is not followed, not mixing seeds in a garden, not followed, rules of fruit of trees, not followed, respect for strangers in your land, not currently followed in America by the far right, and in 23:8 you are supposed to give fire offerings. They have picked and chosen for political convenience. This is immoral and blasphemous.

It seems like in order to follow Jesus and read the entire Bible there is now nothing that goes against gay rights... however, there is one commandment, the second-highest commandment, that instructs all true Christians to love their neighbors. You are blaspheming and must stop your assault on love. Jesus would disagree with your actions. Stop Hate.
