To be more progressive, forward 2000 years date of first publish; omnicide is a common word. If break down the biblical components, homosexuality is a forgiveable sin. Hatred is also a forgiveable sin. I'm going to say the ancient text might be even more homophobic.

God does not condemn homosexuality anywhere in the King James Bible. No where. What you have to understand is the Bible is made of "books", you know, the "Book of Genesis" the "Book of Revelations". They were usually written by different people. And those people often put their own opinions in. They were not possessed by God who moved their hands to write things. They wrote things down of their own free will and had a really bad habit of putting their own opinions in.

An example: In First Corinthians, Paul spends chapter 11 complaining about men having long hair. But then in verse 16 he says, "But if any man be contentious, let it be known that we have no such custom, neither the churches of God". Which means the whole thing was his opinion and God doesn't actually care about your haircut. Sampson had to keep long hair to retain his supernatural strength and lost it when his hair was cut, which contradicts the core idea that God doesn't like long hair. The logic usually given was that men should pray with their heads uncovered and women should pray with their heads covered and their long hair served as a covering, with the burka required by Islam being an extreme version of head covering. Later translations add the word "other", so the translation becomes "we have no other custom", which implies it WAS a custom, which directly contradicts the original translation.

But do understand that there is a difference between simply being gay, like Neil Patrick Harris, and being perverse about it, like the flamboyant flaming loonies that are an embarrassment to other gay people.

Biblical texts are extremely mistranslated. Aside from some cool stories, the entire book as a basis for religion is nonsensical.

Well that is largely why the Bible is divided into the Old Testament and the New Testament, with the former been more Jewish based, and the later been more Christian based. Jesus did do away with a lot of the old ways, things like circumcision and working on the sabbath; and people often adopt a "What would Jesus do?" type attitude. Although the Bible doesn't mention it, I imagine Jesus would of had a similar response to things like homosexuality; though there are later sections (1 Corinthians 6:9–11 and 1 Timothy 1:8–11) which still allude to the notion of homosexuality been a sin.

But god isn’t real, religion is pointless, and I don’t give a f**k

I wouldn’t say that religion is pointless, but letting yourself be a slave to your religion (extremists) or avidly attempting to convert people to your religion is absurd and ridiculous. There is no problem in believing in a god unless you let this non-existent “god” control your life. Even if someone believes in god, that doesn’t mean everyone has to follow this so called “god”. People can have their own beliefs, the problem is when they get a) too extreme about it or b) try to force others into it
