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

Homosexual blasphemy at its worst, calling their god, "erotic christ"

Homosexual blasphemy at its worst, calling their god, "erotic christ" | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it

The “queering” of Jesus Christ is perhaps one of the most outrageous and demented forms of homosexual activism in this spiritually confused age. Sinners throughout history have sought to remake God in their image.

Christian Persecution In The 21st Century | Believe Out Loud

Christian Persecution In The 21st Century | Believe Out Loud | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it

Recently the United Methodist General Conference reaffirmed 40 years of anti-gay prejudice, voting to continue to bar lesbian and gay people from ministry and marriage while faithful gay United Methodists had to endure speeches accusing them of bestiality, calling them drug dealers, and worse. In April, a North Carolina minister used his pulpit to urge parents to beat their young children if they showed any signs they might be gay. In March, the Kansas House approved a bill allowing people to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people based on their religious beliefs. And last year, Christians in Michigan fought to include an exemption from Michigan’s anti-bullying law for people with “a sincerely held religious belief.” In their view, it is OK to torment kids as long as you believe God wants you to.

Christians, I am very sad to say, are at the forefront of oppressing LGBT people all over the country.

Commentary on Politics, Religion, and Society and their Interrelationships: Bashing the LGBT movement; is this the Religious Right’s last stand?

We in the progressive faith communities are called upon to take a stand against the fundamentalist distortion of our faith, lest our Judeo-Christian heritage becomes widely identified as narrow, exclusive, homophobic, and at times hateful.

Is There a Right Way to Come Out?

Is There a Right Way to Come Out? | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it

"But calling Anderson Cooper's coming out method classy or anything similar sort of implies that there's an unclassy way to come out, that it's perhaps better to reveal one's queerness in an indirect, almost passive way. Entertainment Weekly recently had an entire cover story on this phenomenon, praising celebrities who come out with "matter-of-fact understatement." ... There is certainly a respectable "Yeah, it's no big deal" quality to these public-ish statements(-ish), one that says that being gay isn't some earth-shaking thing, it's just, y'know, being gay.

But also? Also it's still a bit of a dodge."
