Fred Phelps, the Christian Superhero with the superpower to condemn gay people (among other superpowers) is no longer with us. G-D finally summoned Fred Phelps at age 84 to heaven to advise H-M on how to deal with the new ACA threat.
Faith must be devastated. I know I am.

Well, since there really is no consensus between christian groups, we can only base on the general consensus of the majority. And based on the general consensus, christians hate gay people.
If you don't agree with this, allow me to invoke godwin's law. There were many nazis who didn't hate the jews. But can you tell me with a straight face that the nazis didn't hate the jews?

Voting results of referendums prove my point. And of course your church will say they don't hate gay people. Even the KKK these days say they don't hate black people. It's not politically correct anymore.
I believe in voting results. I think this is why mainstream christians didn't like FP. He said out loud what people believe but not dare to say.

You mean you've never heard of self hate gays? Some are suicidal because of it. I would be too if I keep hearing shit like 'jesus loves you, but...'

Yes, because some people don't agree with gay marriage, they automatically hate all gay people. Your argument is illogical and factless.
Illogical? Here's the logical progression I've heard consistently from christians.
(1) It's sinful to have sex outside of marriage.
(2) Marriage is between a man and a woman.
(3) Therefore, gay sex is sinful.
(4) And because gay sex is sinful, gay people are required to live lonely lives all their lives.
Wow, what a perfect way to go around hating gay people without admitting to hating gay people. You love them, but you want to deny them the most basic human needs, the need for physical contact and the need to love. In my book, that's hate no matter how you want to put it.
The Methodist Church has many gay members. Some denominations have gay pastors. Yes those people in those denominations really hate their gay pastors.
From my experience with bigots, the first thing they tend to say is I have black friends or I have gay friends or whatever.
So know you are equating all of Christianity with the KKK. Classy, really classy. Next you are going to say Jesus was a gay-hating bigot.
Yes, I am equating christianity to the kkk. Just different sides on the same coin. The kkk is more direct with their hate. Christians try to be more politically correct.
My wife and I don't hate gay people and we are Christians.
If you really don't hate gay people, you would make up the exceptions, not the rule.
Again, I believe in voting results, not some random dude on the internet. It's a travesty that the nation voted into the oval office a man that was a champion of anti-sodomy laws. And it's a sham that we still can't pass gay rights legislations without the courts.

Again, exception not the rule. Being an atheist is even more unelectable than being gay.

Anyway, my rants aside, here's something I've always wondered about FP. Before he founded his hate church, he was an advocate for the civil rights movement. He specialized in protecting black protestors and such.
Here's my conspiracy theory. It occurred to me that he went over the top to push people away from being anti-gay. In other words, if this was the case FP might be the most noble man in the world. He made the world hate him to further gay rights attitude in society.
