I seriously doubt Jesus would acknowledge these so-called men of God as his followers. Preaching hate and intolerance doesn't sound like Jesus' message.

As usual, whether it's racism, sexism, gay-hating, anti-semitism or any other bigotry, you'll find religion at its rotting core.

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9(NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
Jude 1:6-7 (NASB)- And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

Save it for the insecure and uneducated..it's old..it's pure hate in it's most raw form.and it's misogynistic. It should be banned in all teachings because it teaches hate and intolerance.

Bearing in mind he lived in a time and of a faith where homosexuality was a sin, he probably would've acknowledged these people as followers.

Remember, Christ himself was a Jew and never claimed to be anything else.

His message of peace and loving kindness has to be put into context. Homosexuality was still a sin at that time.

btw - I'm not homophobic. No problems with gays whatsoever. I actually find them to be the most tolerant people. Perhaps because they endure harrassment themselves.
