    can gays just accept the fact religion doesn’t accept or condone homosexuality in any way? no matter how u sugar coat it or bring up other points in the bible it still doesn’t change anything, fornication and adultery can be condoned because its btw a man and a woman,but homosexuality isn’t.. does that stop u from attending church or serving God? i dunno,its a personal decision each person has to make..y’all saying in support of religion n homosexuality, why don’t you come out to your pastor/church members and see their reaction? many gays just love being delusional.. i can’t deal.

        Please, where tha fuck is this mentality coming from? I had a chat with a married man the oda day and because I had vehemently refused to deal, he had to go the way of “Gay ppl and drama sha. Una too like to carry person matter for head. If I was commiting adultery with a woman, I bet you wouldn’t be so averse”. Seriously??? I need to slap the origins of that sense

    Religion abhors gays. When I see a gay person say they are religious I feel for them. They just don’t mix.
    I am an atheist not just because I am gay but because religion is senseless to me, snakes and donkeys don’t talk, the world once had dinosaurs, evidence for evolution is astounding.

    Religion is full of hate. To deny that is to lie. Ever wonder how a God could pick a tribe in the middle east and favour them, steal others land and give to them. And yet Christians claim this promise and on Monday come en masse to the hospital.

    When someone starts blabbing to me about the bible says this, the bible says that… I just gently refer him/her to 1st Corinthians 14:34-35. They should start their explanation from there. Most times they start stuttering… and then I give them other verses to explain… and walk away. Ain’t nobody got time for slow minded individuals.

    There are just some bible verses that don’t get preached in churches, but nahhh, the ones delving on gay people must be discussed. Iranu

    Christianity, like several other religions, has lots of flaws to the rational mind. But isn’t that the exact point of religion? To simply believe, to simply have faith in a supreme being/beings and try to live your life according to their laid down standards? That, is simply all that religion teaches us. To believe in the tenets of our religion and in so doing, discount and discard every other religion as wrong. To blame the Christian for his religious stance is to blame every religious person for the wrongs in the world.

    To me, Christianity is my way of connecting with my maker, to understand his plan for my life and to walk in it. His plan and path for me differs from that of my pastor, neighbour, choir director and even my family. So I follow Him, not to critisize others as I neither know nor understand His plan for them but to ensure that I don’t derail from His plan for me.

    Concerning my sexuality, I know that the further I walk with Him, the better He will make me and the more will He open up His plans for me. If my sexuality was not of Him, we would not have the relationship we have. That is my view of religion and homosexuality.

    “Personally I had to make a choice between my sanity and Christianity, and fortunately for me, sanity won.”
    Firstly this had me in stitches. Lol that was really funny.

    It’s an interesting arguement put up by Dimpka, perhaps the best have read so far on this issue.
    I am a church loving-God loving homosexual so of course I do not agree with some of the things you said but some of the points raised is worth looking into.
    Without dabbling too much into the topic because let’s be honest there would never be an end to this arguments. Both parties in the opposite divide would be defiant and the rightly so, with both parties raising valid points.

    Let me conclude with this however, in the little understanding I have of God. He doesn’t hate HOMOSEXUALS OR Gays. Yes he created some people Gay but not everyone who is Gay is born Gay. What God hates.. It’s the act in itself. The Gay sex but never the Homosexual (the person). God doesn’t like sin, which includes fornication, adultery, Murder and homosexuality. just as how God doesn’t has a Murderer but hates the act he commited which is killing. God gives all humans the free will to chose what they want to do with their lifes. He puts extra burden on some (like being born gay) just to see if they can willingly without his influence not do what he detest.
    I don’t claim to know God in toto but I think what God wants is that, he gives humans the free will and option to do what they want but then states the things he doesn’t like, being a Jealous God (as he is the creator of heaven and earth and everything that lives) he wants to see those that love him enough to willing stay away from the things he doesn’t like.

    All what God want is LOVE, Adoration and PRAISE! Which I think is not too much to ask as the creator of all things.
    Shalom!

      Lemme ask something. So if two gay men were to get married and have sex, something married couples are approved to have, God would still hate them for it? He hates all gay sex but doesn’t mind straight sex as long as they’re not fucking outside marriage???

    They were first called Christians at Antioch cos they lived as Christ did.
    Christianity is not a religion,but a way of life.Many may profess to be Christian,but if the way they live differs from Christ-like life,Christian they are not.It’s a no-brainer,everyone knows this.
    “By their fruits,ye shall know them”,wasn’t that what Jesus said?.
    We should be careful how we conflate every act of hate,anger and willful ignorance as that stemming from being a person of faith.

    Btw,some misconceptions you have that need to be cleared up Dimkpa.
    Making heaven is not a function of how well one lives here,how sinless one go by the day.It is of faith and grace of God.
    “8 For by grace you have been saved through faith,and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship,created in Christ Jesus for good works,which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10.

    Also,God didn’t destroy Sodom and Gomorrah cos of homosexuality.The lie had been put to that argument long ago.That someone uses it n you believe it true says quite a lot.
    “49 Look,mthis was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride,fullness of food,and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.” Ezekiel 16:49.
    Lots of you will agree with me that Nigeria has done worse than this as a country.

    Thing is,I’m well tired of these arguments,of religion and homosexuality.We all are at liberty to believe or not what we will,just doesn’t serve our fight for equality if we think we must first prove people’s faith as false in order to validate our being.That fight is lost ere we even take to the field.
    Those that fought and won their own battles didn’t go about it this way,didn’t go about delegitimizing faith.Rather they made sections of faith their allies along with instruments of the law of the modern state.
    If a homophobe would twist a verse or two of the Bible to score a point,there exist whole chapters of the Bible that put a lie to that.Otherwise,we show ourselves no better than they are,two sides of a coin.A very bad coin.

    From my perspective, I have no issues with whatever a person chooses. But I will make a few points.
    1. I have noticed that many in the LGBT are atheists or have negative views of religion.
    2. It is not surprising when people reject something that labels them negatively. So this reaction is expected. Even single celled motile organisms run from negative stimulus.
    3. The advantage of this reaction is that it forced many to wake up and think for themselves. Because otherwise, they would probably be with the rest, fanatical and foaming at the mouth with dogmatism.
    4. A possible disadvantage (if it is truly one) is that, Christians by being such bad representatives of the gospel, have chased many away in the process. If Christianity has any gain whatsoever to a person, these would have lost it.
    5. The fanatic Christians are ignorant. And let’s be honest to ourselves. The conflicts within concerning our sexuality was the window of our escape into sensibility and knowledge. Your “infliction” probably is the reason why you are wiser. In that sense, as regards openness to knowledge, it is an advantage, one that if SOME fanatical Christians had, they would probably know as much as you. Ignorance of one kind or another is the human condition. It is not justified, but that is what it is. On encountering ignorance, let us not hate it but seek to heal it with knowledge. Of course I know it can be frustrating, but that’s the way to go.
    6. And this is a great article, holding forth a perspective that is far better than dogmatism and other weak ideas that have not suffered even a little mentation.

    I think am with TDC today. I mean, I couldn’t have said it better myself. Being a true Christian is being christ-like. I.e true Christainity. Being just religious isn’t the same as being a true Christian. A man can be an ardent church goer and prayer worrior and not be a true Christain, while another might decide not to go to church but live his life by the commandments of God and live a christ like life while also accepting Jesus christ as his personal lord and savior. Jesus never descriminated! NeVER! But Sadducees, Pharisees always discriminated, insulted even molested and killed Jesus himself. This were religious people but never true Christian. I think we are mixing up the two things interchangeably. Which is unfortunate.
    Jesus feasted with Sinners, with those people other (Religious) people condemned and saw as unfit to be humans (just like gay people today). Jesus loved them regardless (Tax collectors, prostitute etc) and that was why jesus was also hated and crucified. Can you imagine? The Religious people then and ” Saints” killed even the son of God. So you can see that being religious is somewhat different from what God intends for his children, which is us. God sent his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him (just believe, acknowledge him thats all he needs) shall not perish but have everlasting life. God just wants us to try to live our life just as how christ lived. That’s the true essence of Christainity. Jesus will never stone gays! Jesus will never insult gays! Infact there was an instant in the bible Jesus defended a prostitute from being stoned to death by “Religous people”
    Religion is just about keeping hold of some Olden days laws, rules and decrees which might or may not be applicable to this current days.

    Without saying much, I think TDC said it all. In a our bid for acceptance and equality, let’s not create a divided house. Whether we cry and shout from now till eternity, there would be God loving homosexuals, there would be Athiest Homosexuals, there would be Muslim Homosexuals and so on and if we all can’t come together for a common goal instead we cause division within ourselves then we won’t achieve anything. Whoever wants to believe in God should, whoever doesn’t that’s their business but let’s not use the community as an umbrella for our differences of opinion on validity of divinity. Live and let live. In other words, let sleeping dogs lie.
    Christainity (I.e true Christain righteous living) is somewhat different from Religion (I.e most people’s perception of what religion is)

    So here we go again

    Anywayssssssss since we all like to play this game of “frying things” too brown, overflogging and listening to broken records..

    Here are my two cents :
    Its in the way we are raised, the way religion was and still is presented to us. We are taught religion as a set of dogmas and a routine eg. You must go to church, read your bible, pray. We forget that religion really is a way of life. It’s not how many times you read your bible or pray or go to church, its how you live your life. Christians of old, were called christians by ppl because they behaved like Christ.

    Now let’s look at how Christ behaved. Was he a cock sucker? No. Was he a fornicator? No, was he a homosexual? No. You can’t really call yourself a Christian if you do not embody Christ like behavior ie if you do not behave like Jesus.
    This applies to everyone, straight ppl that fornicate and are so quick to judge gay ppl, and gay ppl that claim to be Christians too.

    If you go to church, pray all the damn time, quote scripture and yet are mean, a hoe ( national and international) and are gay amongst other things, then you are religious but you aren’t a Christian.

    Christianity is how you live your life. Let’s be honest

    In that vein, I can categorically say I am not a Christian. I believe in God, because I want to believe in something, and sometimes when I stay out in the evenings and watch the sunset, I think someone must have created that, and that such intricate beauty doesn’t just happen. I’ve also been faced with situations that were so hopeless and out of desperation I prayed and to my amazement my prayers were answered, I am sure we’ve all had similar experiences.

    But I know to truly be a Christian I must stop doing what the bible says is sin. But I can’t be bothered right now, as I am an adult and can do what ever I bleedy please. But the one thing I will not do is deceive myself and lie to myself that I am a Christian in the actual sense of things. Taaa! aluu!!!

      So going by your analogy, to be true Christians, we’ve gotta live EXACTLY like Christ.

      Was Christ married? NO! Did Christ ever have sex? NO!

      So do not play the condescension game with people. You think you have things in the right? Truth is, you know nothing! If we go by your words, then even straight married folks would go to hell. Think before you make statements!

        Was Jesus straight? Did he eat hot-dogs? Did he wear sneakers, pants, jackets? Did he own a cellphone? Did he attend a federal college, or a private one? I’m certain he’d never go close to a state university, or did he? How would anyone know these things, the stories aren’t complete.

        On your being a Christian, you went from being Christ-like to “stop doing what the bible says is sin”. Some of those were dropped by Jesus, remember the corn they ate on a Sabbath day?

        That they are following Christ doesn’t make it not a religion. Does it have the attributes of a religion?

        A religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that aim to explain the meaning of life, the origin of life, or the Universe.
        — from Wikipedia

        A religion is a way of life. A hippie can decide not to do everything hippies do, doesn’t stop them from being hippies.

    The Bible is a text used for spiritual purposes. It’s writers and those written about said the things recorded in it. It’s them that should be quoted; not the text, whose current compilation they never anticipated.
    This brings us to understand that not everything said in the Bible is said by God. There are many things said by people (even the devil!) speaking their own minds.
    And of the things God said, none is against homosexuality.

    After the search the scriptures today at church, I asked a question and the pastor hurriedly asked me to stop and never answered my question! We studied the book of Revelations 13! It’s about the great tribulation. My question was on verse 1, I asked the pastor if the Bible says that God created all things, In heaven and on earth and the devil has no power to create, then who made the beast in that verse 1, if God made the beast, what was his purpose for creating the beast?! Asking such questions in deeper life church just starred a lot of disdain from the elders! I love God, I believe in miracles because av seen them both in my life and in my years of practice. As the article above mentioned, I am afraid of questioning the bible, but I have loads of question. Why would God create Gay men? My mum told me during one of our heart to heart talk- ‘God gives you the grace not to sin”, so he makes u Gay and gives you the grace not to act on ur feeling!

      With that question, you are so close to realizing the truth. If only you knew…

    “I think that the greatest problem religious has with homosexuality is a refusal to confront the issue that the Bible may actually be wrong”.

    @Dimpka, you’re my KDian of the year! ??????.. Outstanding. I’m going to copy it out or send the link to all my straight homophobes to read.

    The title of this article is wrong. It should be “Christianity and Homosexuality” there are religions in the world that isn’t islam or Christianity. And these religions don’t mind gay people. Stop the generalization, pls

    or that all the time we spend in choirs, writing songs of praise and worship to His Holy name are done just in the name of being fabulous? I laughed hard here..

    Anyway, I’ve been reading the comments and I’m just baffled why some of you are soooooooooo hell bent on dissing Christianity.. .. I don’t care what anyone tells me, the old testament IS not what we all should live by, but instead – The new testament where Jesus speaks of love and forgiveness..

    I am a Christian and as for as far as I’m concerned, the God I worship doesn’t hate homosexuals.. . #LetTheInsultsBegin

      1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

      Thats your new testament right there.

    Chaiiiii, am so late to this party!!! I shall forever bless the day i kicked religion – that monument to hypocrisy, manipulations and insidious lies out of my life!!! Good riddance! Life has been sweet ever since!!!
    To all those of you who choose to ignore the blatant truth that glares you in the face and instead choose to dumbly embrace religion; have fun … I dont have the energy to reason with you lot …look around you and see the spasming and tortuous death of religion happening everyday as its firm grip is slowly being broken by the strength of reason…

    So, because I’m gay, I shouldn’t believe in God, come on! Stop this. We’re all sinners and even our righteousness is a filthy rag to the maker. Your sexuality doesn’t matter to God. Man, we’re under grace.

      Charles. There is no God. The sooner you understand the better for you. Oh and christianity is anti gay. There is no dodging this bullet.

    My opinion -seeing that you are a former Christian whom circumstances surrounding your situation led you to leave Christianity. It pains me because many Christians have used false interpretations and understanding of the Bible and the Christian faith to drive God’s Children away from him and they feel accomplished.

    Many people go down this road admittedly because many Christians are biased and have not sat down to even apply Christian principles to the issue of homosexuality.

    I get a lot of your points…And they are indeed quite valid.

    But in my opinion, they don’t have to be…I don’t like when gays are made to feel that way…truly it doesn’t make any sense….it even is appalling when Christians turn out to be the ones who are architects of the discrimination – people who are meant to be ambassadors of a God who is love

    But the person who has the propensity for homogenic love does not have to be anti-Christian, does not have to leave his Christian faith, does not have to judge God by his people.

    Irrespective of what others say,such a one can have a beautiful friendship with the God who is Love and such a one in his relationships can even be the ideal for true friendship which the world has many a time now lost.

    Okay… one nice thing is that when I read kdian post and comments I see brilliance and intelligence (in human understanding)….. so my little contribution goes thus ; religion first isn’t christianity so for me d research is lacking in that respect, secondly as a christian who believes in the existence of a supernatural being “GOD” if u follow the trend in d bible, rules change, events and time do not remain d same, different people receive different responses, punishment and pattern of instruction on how to live their lives, (I won’t quote bible, no be me type pass #u know it’s there shaa) so as an ardent christian and not religious fanatic….. the important thing is christianity is your own personal relationship with the father @mitch I see you! yes,,, when u relate directly to the father and follow his commandments, he gives u special instructions on how to live ur life and not d generality of so many different people, tribes and dispensation in d bible, but ur own personal life. When u pray and communicate with him, he guides u through the right part…. wait’ some peeps say there is mystery, a supreme being but how do we know it’s God, and fine I agree, but I choose to name my own supreme being God, (my dog is bill and urs is Jones, both na Dog), so I would rather follow a pattern of morality laid down in d bible and help spice it up with my personal agreement with God. We all know that science hasn’t come around to explain many things, hello? Shey we believe in magic? Juju? U see, there is a force behind it! These things are spiritual and we are human, don’t try to hard to understand it. Otua ka oham n’ onu.
