Why do Christians hate gays?

Not all Christians hate or act hatefully towards homosexuals. When they do, it is not really for either of these reasons. Pure hate is rarely a motive for most anything, and intolerance is a byproduct of reasons rather than a reason itself.

Those Christians who hate homosexuals usually, in my experience, do so (a) because they never learned to think for themselves and take their religion on faith and against reason; and/or (b) because they have their own insecurities that are confronted by the existence of people with certain identities such as homosexuality.

A lot of people in this society think that just because we say that homosexuality is wrong. They consider it as "hate" and they say we are "hating" for what they do. We don't hate gay people. It's the sin that they are in that we don't like. Christ doesn't like sin but He still loves the sinner. That's what Christians are doing except for Westboro who are showing a poor example.

If you think that homosexuality is wrong (and you do admit to hating it as you labeled it a sin), then you're a homophobe, and there's no way your going to get away from that.

I don't care if people think I'm a homophobe. If you think I'm a homophobe then really you're calling God a homophobe because he says that homosexuality is wrong. It's the truth that homosexuality is wrong. I'm going here with what God laid down.

A homophobe is someone who active antagonizes or hates gays. Simply disagreeing is not enough.

Agreed, but I dislike the term homophobia. People who hate and discriminate against homosexuals aren't usually phobic of homosexuals. They are bigots though.

If homosexuality is wrong then why does God create people with homosexual desires. It is God's fault people are gay if he does exist.

God created people for a reason to populate the earth. God gave people over to their sinful nature that means even homosexuality because they didn't want to repent.

"Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another." Romans 1:24

They see homosexuality as gross so they consider it a sin when they ingore countless other verses. A example is below.

9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:

10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.

-Deuteronomy 14:9-10

Jewish dietary regulations were discarded by Jesus directly. Paul and Peter decided gentile believers do not live under all the laws and regulations of the old testament. When was the last time you saw a Christian give a burnt offering?

However, sexual regulations were never discarded. They are necessary for a functioning community; unlike the dietary rules.

Why did the OP commit a logical fallacy?

Tolerance is a virtue for a man without convictions.

To be tolerant of, or in most cases encouraging of, sinful lifestyles and gross distortion of sex and gender would be a disservice to those who fall into those sins. If that is bad enough to ensure you are going to hell, no one should get there and say "why didn't anyone tell me I was wrong, my family and my pastor just mept telling me how great it was"

In the Bible it says to hate all homosexuals and that all homosexuals should be killed.

Leviticus 20:13

The Abrahamic Religions are in my opinion the most evil things to ever exist.

Where does it say that we should hate all homosexuals? Also that verse you pulled out it was the law for the state of Israel and now Christians don't have to follow it because we are under a new covenant. That's like saying other foreign countries should follow the Constitution even though it's only for the United States.

Where does it say that we should hate all homosexuals?

Leviticus 2013

"'If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."

See it not only says to execute gays but to hate them as detestable means worthy of hate.

Isaiah 5:20-22

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;

Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;

Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,

And prudent in their own sight!

The Mosaic Law became irrelevant when Jesus came to Earth. he reshaped the laws so that we would not have to follow the old ones. As Christians, we should disagree with homosexualitiy, but never hate the homosexual. that is how Christians should act, but unfortunatley, that is not how most do now days.

I could have sworn their are lines in the old testament saying that the old laws are still to be maintained.

Well, in all fairness, Deuteronomy and Leviticus are way over-the-top. They are like the "evil" books of the Bible. Many Christians play those off as simply Ancient Jewish social laws, not necessarily laws from God. Ancient societies had laws like that... Babylon and Egypt are good examples, and the Jews lived in both of those areas for a pretty significant amount of time.

Christians often point out Romans 1:26-32 to support their homophobia.

Side: Not tolerant

Yes they are freaks of nature who (in my opinion) deserve to die. We humans were created to marry the opposite sex. why do you think women have holes (vagina's) were a mans penis can fit perfectly inside. and gays are like malfunctioned humans. they are like a computer virus. we have to eliminate it before it corrupts the world. if people were meant to be gay (aka worthless) then would we not be designed to accommodate people being faggoty freaks? answer me that faggoty freak supporters.
