Even if it means ignoring other parts of the Bible that do not say "Love thy neighbor, unless they are gay" or the thing about he without sin casting the first stone and so on and so forth.
It is hypocrisy. Just because you can find some lines against something in there does not mean you are practicing Christianity. Polygamy is acceptable in sections, forced marriage and other things.
Hell, homosexuality is condemned in the same language as eating shellfish. I wonder if all Christians do not do that. Both are called abominations within a few versus of one another.
Selectively pulling one part out of the context of the other parts, and then treating it like the most important part to represent ones faith is hypocritical. Very much so. At the core, it would be declaring that I can judge you because your sins are greater than mine.
Jesus said direct things about that.
If you want to argue from a legal point of view than they have a right but they are being highly subjective in their scripture. Even if the leaders of the early church were opposed to it, they probably were as a part of defiance of Greece etc, but it is strange that they be allowed to treat somebody as lesser when Jesus brought comfort to those that were outcast by society in general. It was his mission.
Heck, he was more aggressive towards power in the scripture, than he was about discussing the ills. All sins were forgivable in God according to current views. That has its own problems, but it is hard to acknowledge that Jesus did not like the gays but was willing to bring together and forgive everybody else. Including murderers.
