The bible says many things are wrong, yet people pick and choose what they want to actually live by. I think using the bible as an excuse for why homosexuality is wrong is every bit as abhorrent as when it was used to back up the "wrongness" of interracial marriage.
Good points. Personally, as a believer, it's frustrating that Old Testament verses are cherry picked, yet people who use it don't follow all of the "Old Law". I get really believing that something isn't right. It's the hate, the judging, etc that bothers me so much.
