Did you know they publicly hang homosexuals in this day and age? I was in a forum for awhile where they had hung men (it is not tolerated by Muslims in certain countries and punishable by death) and was protesting it was wrong, along with many others. It just became a never ending argument and I think the forum just died out in the end, and again, it is not good to judge all Christians and the Churches, because JESUS came with HIS message of love and peace and told us to love each other as we would love ourselves.<quoted text>
Why should it be anything other than neutrality?
It has long been my position that most or all homophobia in the West originates in the Christian church, and that all homophobes learned their hate from their religion, or from somebody else that did. That is, if the church would stop persecuting gays, eventually, so would everybody else.
Anyway, don't follow the link if you don't want to read up and see photos of people hanging, but just letting you know that this behaviour did not originate in the Christian Church, because any Church of Christ, by the words of JESUS HIMSELF, would be abhorred at the cruel treatment of human beings.
