Not offended, that is mostly what I think. I am actually more agnostic than anything.
I very much enjoy theology and learning about it when I can. I just do not like the abuse of it to push things against the tennants of the religion in the first place.
A few versus indicating that homosexuality is wrong are used to basically ignore the teachings of Jesus. I have a big problem with that. My family is pretty religious, I respect the teachings of Jesus a great deal. I just do not think much of other parts of the Bible.
And to be fair, there are a fair bit of things that most Christians ignore, mostly from the Old Testiment. Some just do not want to overlook other parts. So, freedom to ignore parts of it and then picking up on other parts leads one to believe there is a selectivity to the picking and choosing.
Hell, I heard a woman on the news say that "Love thy neighbor" and the teachings of Jesus only applied to American citizens. It made my head hurt.
I think religion has no place in science classes and have major issues with people using it as selective justification. But people being religious or living their life in a religious way has no impact on me. Everybody can do what they want to do and be happy with it.
