i'm Christian and I have the same belief, as do most of my church friends. Every mentor i've ever had have this view as well. I think that one of the biggest reasons Christians are seen badly is that the only groups that get publicized are the crazy ******* who completely misinterpret the Bible. We seriously hate those guys. But we love them too. It's complicated.

On a similar note, the Bible says that homosexuality is a sin in the Book of Leviticus. The book of Leviticus is not necessarily something that God wanted us to follow to the letter. It's similar to the story of Abraham. God may not want us to do what he says, but he wants to see if we are loyal enough to Him that we would do something like take away someone's rights or kill them. (Back to the Abraham story). Abraham didn't want to sacrifice his son. It was his only son. Most of the Old Testament is a loyalty test.

tl;dr? Most christians don't hate gays, we dislike the fanatics, the biblical laws against gays is a test.
