I don't understand. Why would a church of God, of trying to love like Jesus, be so full of hate? God made all of us. You are hating God's creations too. I took the liberty to look up the text from Romans, Chapter One. It is what's used as reference in the Bible as to why "God hates fags."
"Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator- who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the dull penalty for their perversion." (Romans 1: 24-27)
Lines 24 and 25 are centering at how a group of people forgot God. Forgot to praise him, and love him as the Creator, and took life for granted. Forgetting that in exchange for their gifts, they must reproduce. God allowed them to follow their "evil" selves, by following their lusts. That. Is the sin. The sin with being Gay is that it is "only lust." This is the problem. What if you were madly in love with someone of the same sex? Personally, that is not a sin, because you are taking a hold of the love granted to us by God. The Bible always uses extreme circumstances to make a point. Always, in order to prove a moral. In order to provide a true example of lust and forgetfulness of mankind when dealing with reproduction, homosexuality proved to be the best example.
Who is to say you cannot praise God and be in love with someone who is of the same sex? Again. Forgetting to praise God for everything is the number one sin.
"Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them." (Romans 1:32)
This is by no means a relation to homosexuality. This is in relation to rejecting God. You can reject God by taking him/her/it for granted, and for following only after lust. This group of people that are homosexual, in the Bible, were considered every disgusting thing imaginable, for disregarding God. This does not make them evil, vicious, or cruel. This is a group of people whom are homosexual to prove a point: life isn't about lust, its about love. Homosexuality, does not change that.
