Some pastors live in million dollar homes, churches cost money to maintain, and the citizens who have nothing to do with them pay for it indirectly. United States subsidize of religion tunes in at about 71 BILLION dollar every year which the people pay for since the church doesn't. Churches can't survive without federal and state largesse. Now I don't know how it goes in your country but I'm talking about The USA here

I'm sorry I don't know what churches you're talking about. I don't know of any pastors who live in million dollar homes, and the church maintains itself through use of the offerings for maintenance, missionaries, and community work. And in response to this post, while yes we do believe that God provides for us, we also believes He gives us the power to help others with what we here in America have been blessed with. It's not as if we completely disregard the fact there are poor people on this planet.
I'm really sorry if I have been rude in any way, I don't mean to offend anyone. I just wanted to give the perspective of someone who goes to church.

True. I guess what I should have said is when you meet someone who's been married or working way longer or perhaps even double the time you've been alive, because that's more along the lines of what I meant. Sorry for the confusion xD

Basically the only reason people hate gays is because their religion "says" they should. Getting rid of this hate would require a lot more ramifications than getting rid of homosexuality as a whole (hypothetically). This post makes an extremely good point that i've never thought of before.

No religion says you should hate gays. Almost no religions say you should hate anyone. Just because some religions may not support homosexuality doesn't mean that they are told to hate them. That is only certain people who obviously are not educated enough about their own religion or who just want an excuse to hate on nice people.

Oh sorry, I forget where I heard that. I think it might have been that they are the only farm animal with rectangular pupils. My bad xD
