To many, the bible’s true narrative and stand concerning homosexuality remains unclear, while many still settle with the popular teachings of the church against homosexuality without looking deeper.
Yes, as long as Christianity is concerned, the bible condemns all forms of immorality, but a careful study of the bible in its original context, will show or rather prove that God is not against same-sex relationships neither does he want to see people hate or discriminate against other people for whatever reason. Rather he urges people to show love and respect to all men, as commanded by his son Jesus Christ whom the Christian faith is built upon. Read: 1 Peter 4:8, 1 John 4:7-8, John 13:34-35, 1 John 3:15-16
