And I'd like to add that Church is NOT homophobic: there are some guidelines which we believe were given us from God himself, so we can't just ignore them. But please remember that these are valid for everyone, not only/especially for homosexuals. You can't choose who you are going to love, of course, so it could even be a person of your same sex. And there's no evil in that! But you surely can choose how to act and it should be pure. That's what Church says. And I'm really sorry if we always give this impression that we are better than everyone else: we are NOT, and that's for sure, but we just care about saving souls and that's why we won't ever keep our mouths shut.

I definitely agree with the fact that a true Christian must not hate anyone. In order to show the love we received from God, we must love everyone, with no distinction. But something the pastor said is not true and that is about the Bible not saying anything about the consequences of homosexuality. I don't know in other religions, but for Catholics homosexuality IS one of the sins that cries to Heaven for Vengeance (peccata clamantia). And of course homosexuality in this context means having sexual intercourse with a person of your same sex. Why is this kind of relationship considered a sin? Well, mainly because the relationship between two individuals of the same sex A) is not unique as it's not blessed by God (the couple can't receive the Sacrament of Marriage) and B) is by definition not opened to life so C) is against the nature of the mission the human beings have. I hope it is crystal clear that eterosexual couples who do not respect these rules are in a condition of sin too.
