I think it's stupid for a theist to despise someone who doesn't follow the principles of his religion because for doing this he'll never has that person sharing his faith anymore.
I think theists should respect everyone's way of life and don't complain about it, but instead, show them how his way is the best way (if he really want to attract someone to his religion).
Furthermore, I think this is the only acceptable way to deal with gay people if your religion preaches love and mercy.
That is why I said they should, but we cannot force them to.
If a religion preached racism, or sexism, or genocide, that is their beliefs. We cannot force them to change and accept that which their religion preaches is evil. That does not mean that we allow them the spread hate or attack other people. The KKK claims to be the voice of Christianity (I know they do not speak for the majority and am not claiming that they do) and preaches racism and hare. Many religions prevent women from having positions of authority or restrict their freedom. Most religions have gone through a period (or are going through a period) in which fanatics believe that killing heretics and nonbelievers is the path of righteousness (witch trials, crusades, and ISIS at the moment).
I will never advocate forcing someone to believe as I believe, but I will never accept people spreading hate because they disagree with how someone else is living their life, especially if that person's actions in no way impact those who object.
Its not in our own power to change generations of culture and teaching. This isnt no different than a stranger taking over your house and living in it.
We accept everyone as we are taught.
But as the first person stated religion is a collection of belief, culture and traditions. Its not something a group of LGBT who dont have religious knowledge and using the world media to change the church.
I dont see this happening to mosques and shit.
At the end of the day. If your going to change a religion, just make another one. Make a LGBT christian.
I choose disagree because I had to choose a side to post so don't take account that I said disagree.
a religion is a collection of beliefs someone has come up with there should be no debate about whether LGBT people should be accepted into those religions because it is the religion that has the beliefs that contain what they think is right so you can't single out one sector in society and ask if they should be accepted, bearing in mind there are loads of groups in society not accepted by some religions.
so by saying they should or shouldn't be you would be allowing people to force beliefs on a religion which is the same as making every religion believe in one god. so I would say no matter what by trying to change religion you are getting rid of peoples freedom of expression in religious matters.
It depends on what religion we're talking about. Some religions may even preach homosexuality :/
I believe everyone SHOULD accept everyone else as they are. Unfortunately I don't expect that some religions will, and there is no way to force them to as that would not really be acceptance. I think churches would do a lot better if they weren't alienating potential members, but that is unlikely to sway true believers.
I didn't think the current pope is moving towards a more tolerant stance on these things, but it will take a long time and only time will tell how much things change.
