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

Debunking the Religious Basis for Homophobia

 Which brings us back to the question of religious freedom. Without question, Christians, Muslims, Jews and persons of all faiths (officially recognized or not) should be afforded complete freedom to practice, and even preach their beliefs, in public and private, so long as they are not causing undo harm to others, or restricting their freedom. So, if Christianity teaches us that homosexual conduct is a sin, Christian adherents are fully justified in condemning such acts, as in fact it is their God-given imperative to do so. Let us pause to consider the great change this past century has brought, in order to appreciate to what extent devout believers may feel it is their right and duty to stand up against all the real and perceived degeneration to which our culture has succumbed.
