the church doesn't get to decide whether people are allowed to be gay in America . But, since you brought it up, did Jesus speak English ? Nope .What you're referring to are interpretations of his words. Kinda interesting how Pope Francis doesn't agree with your interpretation .Pope Francis says homosexual tendencies are 'not a sin'
Indeed. BEING gay is not itself sinful. What’s considered sinful are sexual acts outside of marriage, and since some religions (including the Roman Catholic Church) don’t recognize same sex marriage as valid, then by definition, gay sex would be considered sinful.

A gay person who lives a celibate life can remain in a “state of grace,” according to the Catholic Church.

Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT).[1][2][3] It has been defined as contempt, prejudice, aversion, hatred or antipathy, may be based on irrational fear and ignorance, and is often related to religious beliefs.[4][5]

Homophobia is observable in critical and hostile behavior such as discrimination and violence on the basis of sexual orientations that are non-heterosexual.[1][2][6] Recognized types of homophobia include institutionalized homophobia, e.g. religious homophobia and state-sponsored homophobia, and internalized homophobia, experienced by people who have same-sex attractions, regardless of how they identify.

and don't give me that crap about what the bible says . There's nothing in the bible that justifies bigotry . If you have a problem with anyone else's sexuality don't look to religion to excuse it away . Look in the mirror. If you're not planning on having sex with them in your own personal life why would you even care?
Don't you have a Trumphobia? An irrational hatred towards Trump and his voters. The most miniscule issue brings acute condemnation , accusations of racism, all isms.
If you have a passions for all things homosexual...so be it. Enjoy. Others may not have that same intense passion.

It just doesn't happen in the bedroom. Schools are now teaching the "alternative" lifestyle to impressionable young children, who will grow up believing what they are taught. Because those who oppose gay marriage have been demonized and will eventually be considered "extremists" because they don't fall lock-step into the leftist agenda.
Homosexuals can't reproduce so they must recruit.
