Judge not, that ye be not judged.

-Matthew 7:1

 Jesus does not once mention anything about same-sex relations in the Bible. So it is not surprising that many Christians are forced to cherry-pick the Bible and take verses out of context to support their discriminatory views toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. For example, those Christians who are against gay rights often point to the Book of Leviticus to support their beliefs. Yet a closer look at Leviticus reveals that the Bible not only bans same-sex relations, but a lot of other things, as well-- like trimming your beard and getting a tattoo. Jesus’ teachings, on the other hand, indicate that humans should not judge others. Using the tactics of Christians, a simple quote from Jesus pulled out of context could make him appear quite eager to engage in some same-sex relations with his old pal, Satan.


"Get behind me, Satan!”

-Jesus, Matthew 16:23
