Hell for gays is not homophobic?

I have relatives who love me and have made sacrifices for me, but who nevertheless believe I am going to hell when I die because I am gay. They claim they are not homophobic. Hate the sin, not the sinner and all that.

Does anybody else experience this family dynamic and, if so, in what region do you live?

There is no hell, no heaven ,no god....Cut the bitches op.

What they feel for you goes well beyond hate, OP. Beyond that, there's no other commentary worth offering to you. The level of brainwashing neccessary to convince people that being forever tortured in Hell is *love* is so intense and all-encompassing that you cannot be deprogrammed in this lifetime. There simply isnt enough time left.

Yes, given the number of sins and commands in the Bible that people totally ignore, singling out gays for hell is homophobic.

Even if you think it's all a big fairy tale, the thought behind it is still bigoted.

You gays are hysterical! Hell must be a riot!

Is it heterophobic of me to wish they would die in a grease fire?

Well, actually, Biblically speaking anyone who does not believe in Jesus Christ as the only Savior and God will go to hell for not believing. By not believing in Jesus Christ, the Bible says a person remains in their sin instead of being forgiven of it, and therefore, unforgiven, the person will spend eternity in hell. So, technically it is not being gay that sends you to hell, according to the Bible. It is the rejection of Jesus Christ that sends people to hell, which means all their sins are still held against them on the Day of Judgment, whereas believers in Christ are totally forgiven.

No, it's not. Hell is for the adulterers, whores and idolators, too, and of course Hitler.

At least here are no sanctimonious God-fearing Christians like your relatives in hell, OP.

Hell is for children.

You should ask for books on theology, OP.

Every queer who grew up in a Christian household has had to study theology to make some sense of the dogma.

I bet these relatives are younger - under 70. Even the coldest Midwestern Lutheran in my family has seen enough fucked up children, friends, and neighbors to know heaven is a barren place when the bible's taken literally.

It's not homophobic. Hell is fun.

Some may argue that OP's relatives aren't homophobic, but concerned for his well-being in the afterlife, like with parents who are concerned when their kids announce they applied for clown college, become actors, or go to the prom with a hot piece who's way out of the kid's league.

To them it will only end in tears and dispair.

Btw, they believe non-believers go to hell, too. Not just gays.

Thanks r6. What a crock of shit. How anyone old enough to know that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are fake can believe that crap is true is beyond me.
