There were gays always
Just saying that makes me fear whatever happened to them...of course they sublimated...and lived in denial...it's even possible they were happy living a fake life....
We dont really know, different lands, cultures and times view homosexuality differently, of course ifvyou were Christian or Muslim back then or even now you were pretty screwed.
Times and acceptance have changed in most cultures over time. There will always be segments of society that want to eradicate elements they don't like. Hell, from looking at the posts, there are some on here that would like to eradicate Trump supporters.
While Islam demands killing gays, I can't think of any mainstream christian sects that advocate killing gays. (The Westboro Baptist church advocates killing anyone who is not a member of their church so I don't count them.)
Yeah, Ive should have made it clear, Christianity mistreated homosexuals in the past centuries when religion had the most power. The Muslim world somehow managed to remain outdated and barbaric as the middle centuries.
no there were not.
