Romans 13:10

True Christians would not use the Bible or the Word of God or inject their own words as the voice of Jesus to inflict physical, emotional, or psychological harm on others.
Anyone who would quote the Bible to justify discrimination or violence or hatred against anyone identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or ally or straight or questioning– or anybody for that matter, has lost touch with the most basic fundamental commandments of not just Christianity, but of humanity.

“Love others as you would want to be loved.”

You cannot take the all-loving, most merciful God’s name in vain and assume that you can speak on His behalf to justify violence, bigotry, or hatred.

Jesus died for all sins and all sins are forgiven by Christ.  He condemns no one.
Love is no sin. Love cannot be a sin.

Fornication, however, is not love. Frivolous sex is not love.  Using people, taking relationships for granted is not love.  Love requires commitment and a dedication to having your partner’s well-being and health and needs met. Intimacy does not automatically mean sex.  Intimacy means understanding, bonding, sharing, having real care and compassion for one’s partner.

Choose love and make it mean something more than “just sex”.
