Homophobia and God.

Some people still insist that God is homophobic.

And they cite the Bible as evidence.

Despite the fact that references to homosexuality are scarce in the Bible, and the passages that do exist are disputed, some Christians still insist that this proves that God is homophobic.

But I say that homophobia is inconsistent with the spirit of the Bible.

The Bible tells us of a God who is gracious and merciful, forgiving and loving like a Father.

And His son Jesus Christ was humble and loving - an agent of God's mercy and forgiveness.

Homophobes adhere to the letter of the Bible and ignore its spirit.

So don't insult God with your claims of homophobia.

God is harmless and loving towards everyone.

Including homosexuals.

  1. I agree! I don't think a legitimate case can be made that God does NOT embrace gays. One can piece together a few disparate biblical passages to claim an anti-gay conclusion, but it just doesn't hold up.
