No Christian can support gay rights, abortion or any of the other acts that Jehovah God, (the creator of all that is) and Jesus Christ, God’s son, call sin in the scriptures.
Other acts that the Holy Spirit says in the Bible are sins are found in: Rom. 13:1-10; I Cor. 5:9-13; 6:9-11; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:1-7, 18; Col. 3:5-9; II Tim. 2:22-23; 3:1-8; I Pet. 2:13ff; 4:2-3; Rev. 21:8; Rom. 1:29-31 as well as other places.
God is the one who decides what is sin; not the government, news media an organization or anyone else.
Scripture says those who do practice such sins cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (Heaven). Christians are not judging those folks to Heaven or hell. God does that; but everyone does make judgments on many topics.
The ones saying Christians are judging, are they not judging? We are told that by their fruits you shall know them. We are all sinners, but folks who accept Jesus Christ as Lord, and seek to be obedient to Him, have Jesus to atone for their sins. God says that He wants all to come to repentance; Christians also want that.
Scriptures say that the world hated Jesus, and the world will hate His followers. So, we are not surprised at the uproar by those who do not follow Jesus, nor believe in Him. Christians rejoice in suffering, and being persecuted for Christ. Those who support these sinful acts feel they can say anything they please, but those who oppose them, are to remain quiet. They want freedom of speech for themselves, not for anyone who disagrees with them.
