No not at all. I’m don’t ‘support’ the lifestyle, but I don’t hate them, or discriminate against them. Jesus still loves them, so I do too.
the christian way to say you’re homophobic.
^ The accuracy.

The gif! I’m weak.
I mean I’m sure the OP’s heart is in the right place. But really…Not going to the parade isn’t not standing in support of LGBTQ people and treating them like they are human is well, above all things, loving your neighbor like you would yourself etc.
However….when we as Chrtistian’s say things like ” i dont’ support the lifestyle” what we are saying is, ” I don’t think that gayness should even happen.” ” I’m opposed to gay marriage” ” I may or may not think they are going to hell” etc. Because the bible said”
Which are all homophobic things.
When you grow up in that kind of ideology/hate instilled it’s hard to undo. A lot of Christians don’t. One thing I do know is I’ve never seen so much love from people that I out right persecuted shown to me when I needed it. I’ve never seen so much love shown in relationships and in families.
It’s amazing that LGBTQ folks will love Christians inspite of how horrible we have been to them. Like, have you ever thought, how they look at us like ” I don’t’ support their lifestyle as it directly threatens my life but I love them anyhow.”
How many friends, cousins, church members that we shamed saying homophobic things? Those we prayed would change? People we alienated? Like that is mercy…and that’s what preached to me.
