Do Christians Hate Gays?

 
The simple answer is no, true Christians do not hate homosexuals. In fact, the Bible says and Jesus taught that Christians are to love even their "enemies.”   Bible believing and practicing Christians do not agree with the homosexual lifestyle because the Bible explicitly tells us, or those willing to listen, that it is wrong for two men, or two women to have sex with each other.  In this regard, the question is, what does it mean to hate?   

Just because Christians disagree with the gay lifestyle, does not mean that they "hate" gays.  In fact, Christians are taught to love sinners, yet hate sin.  So when Christians express the biblical view that sex outside of marriage, and/or unnatural sex, is a sin, they are simply confirming what the Bible plainly states; however, this does not mean that they, or we, hate those who practice such things. 

This is an issue of truth as opposed to personal preference, prejudice, or "hate."

The fact is that gays and lesbians often want to force their views upon our whole society, do away with Free Speech, and teach other people’s children what they think is right or wrong.  At the same time they ignore the fact that everyone is born from a Mother and Father: including gays and lesbians.  In fact, nature itself does not cooperate with homosexuality, but rather discriminates against gays  by only allowing opposite sex couples to share their DNA and produce offspring through natural selection.

Another fact that is often minimized or ignored is whether or not gays are able to change.  In this regard, it is a fact that many thousands of former gays and lesbians
have changed and are now straight. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

God’s character is Love and Truth, and loving others means speaking the truth even when it isn’t popular: John 15:15-22. 

Every Christian has had to change his or her ways and ask for God’s forgiveness and help.  Unlike Muslims, who are intolerant of anyone who isn't like them, including gays, Christians are taught to Love even those who hate them: Matt. 5:10-16; 22-24; 43-48; 6:19-24; Col. 3:9-14.

Peace with God doesn’t come from conforming to the world but to what pleases God.  And when our lives please God we experience a deep peace that we are told will never end: Matt. 12:50; John 3:16; 6:37-41; 11:25-26; 14:1-6; Rom. 10:4-13; 2 Cor. 5:17; I Pet. 1:3-5; I John 2:25-3:3; 5:11-13.
