"Show me where Christ said 'Love thy fellow man, except for the gay ones.' Gay people, too, are made in my God's image. I would never worship a homophobic God.
'But they are sinners,' I can hear the preachers and politicians say. 'They are choosing a life of sin for which they must be punished.' My scientist and medical friends have shared with me a reality that so many gay people have confirmed, I now know it in my heart to be true. No one chooses to be gay. Sexual orientation, like skin color, is another feature of our diversity as a human family.
Isn't it amazing that we are all made in God's image, and yet there is so much diversity among his people? Does God love his dark- or his light-skinned children less? The brave more than the timid? And does any of us know the mind of God so well that we can decide for him who is included, and who is excluded, from the circle of his love?"– archbishop desmond tutu
