Christian Homophobia
Current news about christian homophobia. Homophobia is defined as fear of homosexuality, including hate towards homosexuals. The existence of christian homophobia is fueled by bible interpretation. It is expressed in the condemnation of homosexual behavior. Christian homophobes label the homosexual orientation as sin. As a consequence christian fundamentalists don’t fully accept LGBT identities as categories. This legalistic worldview on homosexuality is gradually changing

If We Describe Gay Sex To People, They Will Turn Against Homosexuality - Topekas News | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it

Behind all the romanticized, media generated mystique of homosexuality — top fit bodies engaging in neat, tidy acts of pleasure — is a bare and rancid truth that will turn the belly sideways:  the acts of gay copulation explore the deepest depths of the body, germs and musks all colluding to create a very unsanitary experience.

Illinois rejects ban on reparative therapy for minors with same-sex attraction

The Illinois House voted last week to reject a bill that would have banned reparative therapy for minors with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA).  It is the fifth state to vote down a ban on the practice in recent months, following high profile debates over the issue in California and New Jersey, which both instated bans last year.

Christopher Doyle, an ex-gay activist and president of Voice of the Voiceless, said following the vote that he thought the decision was a win for free speech and individual medical rights.

Gays don’t become straight. So what now?

For some time now, evangelicals have argued that homosexual orientation can be changed through reparative therapy. That idea is no longer sustainable. For some time failure and scandal have plagued various evangelical reparative organizations, including the most visible of all, Exodus International. Now Justin Lee, author of Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays vs. Christians Debate, has joined the chorus calling for evangelicals to abandon this approach to homosexuality with his bluntly titled article: “Dear Evangelicals, Let’s Stop Burying Our Heads in the Sand on ‘Ex-Gay’ Ministries“.
