Why people think that if you don t agree homosexuality you are homophobic?

I don t agree at all with homosexuality but I am not homophobic. I can have friends gays . Many times they are good people and very nice and many of them were abused... They have a soul the same precious as mine. It is very wrong to be gay as God is saying. God can help them a lot if they ask help in the right way. Many did not even try to change.

Christians are you homophobic?

    I agree with you, Nicoleta. I think they are making up this homophobic thing because many these days are accusing Christians of all sorts of things. The devil wants to do away with Christianity. I am not homophobic. I realize many homosexuals are very intelligent and some are gifted and have nice personalities, but they need to be saved too just like everyone else. And btw, the verse they hate in Corinthians isn't attacking them at all. It's only saying ANYONE who dies in their sins (not forgiven) will not be in the Kingdom of God.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Today's New International Version (TNIV)

    9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

    I get this feeling that homophobes are afraid that gays are going to make them gay. I have to admit, when I was a Christian a couple years back and met one of my friends I felt a bit homophobic when I found out she was bisexual. I didn't think it was wrong, but I would get a bit nervous because I thought that I could "turn gay" because she was into girls.

    Never happened. I think people who have first interactions or encounters with gays or bi's sometimes feel this way. But it's nothing. If you're straight you're straight and nothing is going to change that. If you consider the same sex then you are bi and were never straight to begin with. That's my opinion, anyway.

    • That s true. If you re straight, you re straight. But I don t think that heterosexual people believe that gays will make them gay. I think we get tired of this whole gay matter being forced upon us. If I don t agree with it, don t come over here. We don t announce we re hetero!

    I don't agree with homosexuality, it is said to be a sin but I am not a homophobic, if I had a gay or lesbian friends I would be comfortable with them cause they are humans like me I can't segregate them just because they are slightly different in their views and matters of sexuality. It's cool with me.

    Homophobia is a fear of what you don't understand. This includes a willful ignorance of what homosexuality actually is; something that you've clearly demonstrated in the assumption that gay people can "change".

    Sorry to say, dear; but you are, to a degree- a homophobe. You may not call for the death of gay people, but you are still ignorant to the facts on homosexuality, and use religion (arguably incorrectly even) as a crutch for what you choose not to understand.

    i think of I accept as true with you. i'm right away, and have 0 temptation to be something yet right away. on the different hand, i won't be in a position to confirm any injury in homosexuality, and that i parent that sexual orientation is each and each individual's deepest enterprise. i do no longer "like" homosexuality, nor "dislike" it. It in basic terms is. i think of your chum would be somewhat protective by using fact maximum of people are so knee-jerk hateful approximately gays and can be especially hurtful. save on, guy!

    It is a well known fact that the person screaming the loudest about some sort of sin is the person who is committing it.

    It is just a coping method, the person has shame or guilt about a certain aspect of their lives they believe it to be a sin, so they persecute it in public while indulging in it that same sin in private.

    Just disagreeing is not the type person involved here its the loud big display person that you need to be wary of.

    Example the preacher making a big deal about pornography, and Sunday after Sunday goes on about it loudly.... is the very person with a stash of playboy under his bed.

    Not agreeing with homosexuality is not inherently homophobic, but any manifestation of that disagreement that infringes on a homosexual's rights certainly is.

    It's not for you to say whether they have to "try to change" or not--it's simply none of you, nor my, business.

    It is ok to be scared about things that you don't know about. You don't have to understand why people are a certain way. But you do have to recognize that people need love, in ways that you may not understand. God is not against people - loving each other, he is just supporting people having children. If you were Jesus, what would you do?

    Phobia = Definition

    A phobia is an intense, unrealistic fear, which can interfere with the ability to socialize, work, or go about everyday life, that is brought on by an object, event or situation. So if you do not fear homosexuals, you are not homophobic.

  • It isn't always technically being afraid of them. However it is being closed minded because they are judging something before they actually really know about it. Most of the time it is just because their book full of hearsay claims and written thousands of years ago says so.

    If they really wanted to know they will find every leading scientific organization that studies this has gone on to say they are not anymore harmful than being straight.
