On September 22, 2000, a 55-year-old man named Ronald E. Gay, angry for being teased about his last name, entered the Back Street Café in Roanoke, Virginia, a gathering place for lesbians and gays just a few miles from Lynchburg. Confident that God's Word supported his tragic plan of action, Mr. Gay shouted, "I am a Christian soldier, working for my Lord." Claiming that "Jesus does not want these people in his heaven," he shot seven innocent gay and lesbian people. One man, Danny Overstreet, died instantly. Others still suffer from their physical and psychological wounds.

In July 1999, Matthew Williams and his brother, Tyler, murdered a gay couple, Gary Matson and Winfield Mowder, in their home near Sacramento, California. Speaking to his mother from the Shasta County jail, Matthew explained his actions in this way: "I had to obey God's law rather than man's law," he said. "I didn't want to do this. I felt I was supposed to. I have followed a higher law... I just plan to defend myself from the Scriptures."

It's interesting that in both cases the "Christians" had to step outside of the teachings of the Bible and of Christ when they did what they did.

It is arrogance that men think God/Jesus needs their help to do any of His work....

and more importantly....since this alledged work(killing) is contrary to the teachings of Christ

This doesn't sound like the God I was raised with. Sounds like the ravings of a couple of lunatics.

Christians throughout history have murdered homosexuals.

However I think we can admit that these are rather extreme cases nevertheless.

There must be a God impersonater who told him to kill someone who is also a children of God.
He thought that he followed the scripture wholeheartedly meant that he is the only good God creature on earth and can kill anyhow. Someone evil has misled/tampered his interpretation of scripture. How can he be so cruel to his own species.

Jesus died for everyone, for all sin. He doesn't look a homosexuality any different than any other sin. Sin is sin. I don't believe God told him to do anything. That is of his own selfish doings.

MATTHEW 7
21“Not everyone who says to Me,`Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
22“Many will say to Me on that day,`Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many Or works of power miracles?'
23“And then I will declare to them,`I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness."

funny how christians only look at certain parts of scripture to justify what they believe and ignore other parts if you look in the bible it forbids dozens of things that are normal today and not controversial at all and homosexuality is the same way the bible was written thousands of years ago by a bunch of people who knew nothing about homosexuals and thought they were just sex crazed mental patients and had no idea they were simply differently orientated
