Kill gays is not a biblical command.
From Weirdo Westboro Baptists to Bozo Baptist preachers who advocate death for gays and lesbians, these are some of the dumbest preachers who ever drew breath. The body of Christ is riddled with sin and poisoned by false preachers, spewing murderous hatred.
Pastor Curtis Knapp, New Hope Baptist Church, Seneca, Kansas, wants to kill homos. His hateful video was removed by Youtube for policy violations.
Commandant Charles L. Worley, Providence Road Baptist Church, Maiden, NC, wants to kill queers behind electrified wire in concentration camps.
Commandant Steve Anderson, Faithful Word Baptist Church, Tempe, Arizona, wants to kill gays. He got embarrassed at his notoriety and made this video private.
"Kill gays - all 32 million!"
We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 1 John 3:14, 15, 23 KJV
According to the U.S. Population Clock, there are 328,346,599 Americans as of January 25, 2019. Conservative estimates put the number of gays and lesbians at 5% to 10% which means kooks like Commandants Jiminez, Anderson, Knapp and Worley want to kill 16,190,566 to 32,000,000+ of their fellow American citizens.
Did you get that? These ignorant Baptist preachers want to kill 32 million American citizens based on their lazy ignorance and inability to understand Leviticus 20:13 in context.
Does this vicious hatred from alleged men of God make you sick to your stomach? Even Nazi Germany didn't incarcerate behind electrified fences in concentration camps and kill that many of their fellow citizens. Anderson, Knapp and Worley are worse than Nazis in their blood-lust.
One imagines they also want to kill all transsexuals and bisexuals so their hoped for death toll continues to mount. A professing Christian lady wrote to me recently citing Leviticus 20:13, as if gays should be killed. Her approach is typical of many ignorant Christians. She quoted three Bible verses including one which some Christians believe is about killing gays.
If Christians obeyed 2 Timothy 2:15 and studied their Bible in context, they wouldn't be so misguided on gay issues. A bit of study would reveal that the verses they view as instructions to kill the gays are really talking about God's judgment on shrine prostitutes 3500 years ago when Israel was a theocracy.
Advocating Murder is not free speech.
Here are verses some Christians rip out of context and use as their excuse to advocate killing gays and lesbians.
"If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They will surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them." Leviticus 20:13
"Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of the error which was due." Romans 1:27
Far too many Christians these days read the above verses and instantly conclude they are referring to gays and lesbians yet gays and lesbians are not the context of any of the verses quoted above. Those verses are talking about temple prostitutes.
The verses quoted above are in the specific context of shrine prostitutes or cult prostitutes or temple prostitutes. Religious prostitution in worship of the fertility goddess was the cultural, historical and religious reality those verses addressed.
Therefore it makes no sense to insert modern gays and lesbians into ancient texts as if they are the subject of the ancient texts. Those verses do not in any way teach that we should kill gays today
I've often marveled at the thought processes or lack thereof of some Christians. They seem to operate in a make-believe world almost entirely divorced from rational thought. All of the bone-headed pastors advocate killing gays but none of them advocates killing adulterers. Yet Leviticus 20:10 says to kill adulterers. Why are they so hot to trot to kill gays but it never occurs to them to kill adulterers? Could it be they are world class hypocrites?
Here are thoughtful answers
to the verses quoted above.
Do you agree that Kill Fags
is not a Christian sentiment?
I am convinced that non-gay Christians as a group are often too lazy to study the issue of homosexuality and the Bible. Hook, line and sinker, they've swallowed what they've been told at church without any thoughtful reflection, without any study, without any prayer and most definitely, without being as honorable as the Bereans in Acts 17:10-11.
Armed with what they allege are incontrovertible proof texts, they charge into battle, determined to vanquish their homosexual foes and convince government to kill us, if possible. Like Don Quixote, they vainly tilt at imaginary gay windmills.
I once heard an Independent Baptist preacher named Jack Woods, from Houston, Texas, who loved to talk about his "Kill A Queer For Christ Club." What a perverted thing for an alleged man of God to say! I answered the lady who wrote to me but my email bounced back as undeliverable. Here's what I told her.
Gays are killed in Jamaica.
"Dear Rose, Thank you for writing to me. It's always nice to hear from our readers. You asked an important question.
"How can your lifestyle be right
in the eyes of the Almighty?"
I've answered your question at great length throughout this website. Click any button on the NavBar and begin reading. Unfortunately your question makes several false assumptions.
One of the verses you quoted, Leviticus 20:13, says the men involved should be put to death. So I have a question for you."
"Do you believe it's okay to Kill Gays?"
Some people even sell tee shirts which advocate kill gays. Now that is just plain dumb!

Romans 1, in historical context, is about ancient Roman fertility goddess worshipers who engaged in shrine prostitution to worship Cybele, not gays and lesbians.

Rick Brentlinger Answers - Thanks for such an interesting question. Same sex activity is mentioned in ancient writings as far back as 4000 years ago.
