I've read the Bible as a whole and it definitely has nothing to say about hating gay people. Plenty about loving your neighbor, I noticed. I think you're reading a different book. Or maybe you're not reading any books at all and just justifying your prejudice however you can.
You provide no evidence for the things you say and appear to just be spewing the same crap over and over.
I think the old 'you hate gays' line as nothing but a cop out.Not agreeing with their lifestyle is not hate.
You in the very same breath say not to judge but you then turn around and call me,prejudice.Are you not the one being hypocritical?
It is not judging when a person takes a stand and calls sin,sin.
Are you judging when you say murder is wrong? If you say it is wrong,you hate them.
Are you judging when you say adultery is wrong? Do you hate them also?
Are you judging when you say it is wrong to steal? Again,you must hate them by your own words.
Are you judging when you say lying is wrong? You again must hate them.
By your own words,you hate many people.
Yes,we are to love everyone but we are not to condone the wrong they do.Sometimes loving and caring for others means that you must tell them that they are doing wrong and need to change.
Have you never had to tell someone that something needed to change in their life? If you have ever had a real friend,you have.Were you judging them? Again,according to your own words,you are.

You confuse hating the action with hating the person. I don't hate someone that steals, I hate that we have a society that put them in that position, that we neglect education and opportunities for spiritual or personal growth (as well as financial growth).

And what you say about talking to someone who is doing wrong is sound. But your implication that homosexuality is somehow wrong is ridiculous. Homosexuals can't help whom they want, no more than you or I can. Homosexuality occurs in almost every species on this planet, so you could reasonably say it's more natural than marriage.

Haha, I know some gay guys that you'd have a pretty hard time "bashing". Nobody deserves to be hit without reason. You want to fix the world? Start by letting go of hate and working together with your entire species, not just some arbitrary portion of it. While we're actually working on building a better world, you're getting left in the dust like all those old racist people did during the Civil Rights movement. People are going to look back at this time in 50 years and either laugh or be ashamed at how ignorant some were.

college student,you are confusing the disapproval of a lifestyle,homosexuality,as being hate.This is not hate of a person just as you dont hate a person that steals.

It is however,hate if you will,of a lifestyle that is not normal.It is not hate of a person but people try and make it into such when someone doesnt like the gay lifestyle.Those that do so are the bigots.

What animal is homosexual? An animal has no conscience as a humans do,they dont have the ability to choose right from wrong because they dont have the ability to know one from the other.

We as humans on the other hand have a conscience and the ability to comprehend results of our actions,if we choose to do so.

There is no gay 'gene' and there is nothing that makes a person,gay.It is a choice at least and a mental/social issue at most.

Telling yourself that you are only expressing disapproval of a lifestyle that you choose to believe not to be "normal", is nothing more than a lie you tell yourself and to us in order to feel better about your less than Christlike behavior. You wonder why we call it hate? You obviously have never been on the receiving end of your kind of disapproval.

Reality check self-professed good Christians, it really doesn't matter if you choose to believe God approves of us or not, we are here nonetheless and intend to live our lives as equal citizens of our own country.

There have been experiments where scientists turned fruit flies homosexual by switching a simple gene. Homosexuality has been seen in apes, dolphins, dogs, and cats, just to name a few. To say homosexuality is a choice is like saying heterosexuality is a choice; You can't say one is without the other.
