Why do people insist on citing Leviticus?   
It is completely irrelevant and has been for at least 2000 years

People quote it a lot to say the Bible is ant-gay. Yet again, God hasn't told anyone to re-write it for modern times. I can understand outlawing gay marriage in ancient times, as civilizations needed to expand and gays simply cannot produce children. However, in modern times while we approach 7 Billion people gays are more helpful seeing as they are adopting the surplus of children in orphanages while not producing any more kids.

The act of maintaining love of a man to man relationship is not outlawed in the bible depending on the most logical way of interpreting. *from this point I will paraphrase to the best of my abilities, please bear with me if you have any sense* "man shall not lie with another man as he does with a women". That's simply saying, "no trying to find a vagina on a dude, it won't work", since that's all the argument Christians have against gay relationships, if 2 men were to be together in a romantic relationship, but didn't pack the fudge or licked the snicker, then it's completely viable, That's at least how I see it, so any input I would love to hear.

It was never outlawed. That section in Leviticus is taken out of context. Any 'man' in ancient times was married so gay sex was cheating on a man's wife. Which cheating on your spouse was outlawed.

I'm not saying the Bible outlawed it, I mean in general

Both people who say parts of the bible are irrelevant or misinterpret it are destroying Christianity one step at a time. I rather be assaulted by the most ignorant collective of extremist atheist than hear one Christian misrepresent the bible or not take it as the whole truth.

Bible thumpers tend to quote Leviticus a lot, since it's one of the few/the only book of the Bible that has anti-gay passages in it.

They also conveniently leave out the parts about how to sacrifice bulls, why you shouldn't shave, and why you shouldn't get a tattoo.

Thus, Leviticus gets brought up a lot because it's a hotbed of Christian hypocrisy.

Untrue. A few brief mentions about homosexual activity in some of Paul's letters, although nothing directly stating about homosexuality without action being sinful. Let the thumpers do their thumping.
