Isn't it true that God hates fags?
Does God hate figs or fags?

Sounds like you've been hanging around Fred Phelps and his strange family. No, the Bible never says that God hates fags, gays, lesbians, queers, homos, dykes and fairies.
According to the Bible, God loves us and wants to save
everyone who will trust Jesus alone (instead of their good works).
"But God demonstrates his love for us by the fact that the Messiah died for us while we were still sinners."
-Romans 5:8, International Standard Version
Based on what the Bible says about figs, one could argue with much more scriptural authority and more in context (than the anti-gay crowd trying to make a Biblical case against homosexuals), that God hates figs.
The Bible on Figs
"18 - In the morning, as he (Jesus) was returning to the city, he became hungry.
19 - And seeing a fig tree by the wayside, he went to it and found nothing on it but only leaves. And he said to it, "May no fruit ever come from you again!" And the fig tree withered at once.
20 - When the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, "How did the fig tree wither at once?" -Matthew 21:18-20, English Standard Version
"12 - On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he (Jesus) was hungry.
13 - And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.
14 - And he said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard it." -Mark 11:12-14, English Standard Version
"I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them." -Jeremiah 8:13, King James Bible
""But thus says the Lord: Like the bad figs that are so bad they cannot be eaten, so will I treat Zedekiah the king of Judah, his officials, the remnant of Jerusalem who remain in this land, and those who dwell in the land of Egypt." -Jeremiah 24:8, English Standard Version
"17 - 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, behold, I am sending them sword, famine, and pestilence, and I will make them like vile figs that are so rotten they cannot be eaten." -Jeremiah 29:17, English Standard Version
The point is that "fag haters" need to stop taking verses out of context. Trying to prove something that isn't so, by taking verses out of context, is so yesterday.eDisciples are serious about real Bible study.How can I find a gay-affirming church in my area?What did Jesus say about homosexual eunuchs or gay people?
