So, I came across this article the other day {http://www.youngcons.com...} Basically this article consist of gay people mocking god. They are dressed in his clothing, some have a thorn crown upon their head, and one person Is upon the cross kissing his boyfriend.

Now, I am a Christian, but I have nothing against gay people. They have the right to love who they want. But is the act of mocking god way out of line? What's your opinion?

Mocking a christian god should be punishable by death.

Mocking mohammed is cool, f-k that f-king foreign c-t, I hope he comes near my house so I can blow his face off with a shotgun like charlie hebdo.

(Heavy handed sarcasm. Pick a side, either you can or can't mock a god. I say you can't and charlie hebdo is wrong)

I think gay pride itself is a silly idea since straight people don't have straight pride... but I guess you could say it's a reaction to long-term discrimination.

With that said, while mocking god in this manner may be out of line, I don't think it's a problem with gay pride itself. There are many atheists who, despite not being LGBT or particularly concerned with LGBT rights, would do similar things.
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor

Gay pride isn't about being gay, it's about being proud of who you are (which is also stupid, since if you're religious God chose that and religious worship IS ALREADY pride and thanking him, or thanking... nature)

I agree. People cant help being gay. I personally believe people are born homosexual.

Rather than saying that gay pride has gone too far, I'd think it would be more fair to say that a segment of the people who participate in gay pride parades have gone too far.

But it all falls under the same category "Gay Pride". I think its safe the say that the main majority of Gays do things in spite of Christians. Just like this article above. Why on earth would you mock God, unless your doing it in spite, knowing you will upset and anger Christians.

This is more of an issue of freedom of expression, than LGBT movement. Personally I think it is in bad taste, but they are well within their rights to do this. And necessarily so.

Not necessarily. Seems they are doing it to spite Christianity, rather than Christians themselves. That is usually the case when satire is thrown at religion.

I just don't understand how they want support from Christians, yet they turn around and do something like this knowing its going to cause issues.

Who said that the people that did this do want that support? We don't know their thoughts or motivations. We are just left guessing.

Of course they're not out of line. The Bible says that gays should be murdered; any respect shown to Christianity by gays is an undeserved gift.

I think this is their revenge for years of discrimination by Christianity. Religion is one of the main reasons for anti-gay movements.

Yes. They're behaving like petulant children. It's embarrassing, and in very bad taste.

Yet depictions of Mohammed being arseraped is "clever", "art" and "freedom of expression".

Double-standards.

I am gay, and I agree this was in poor taste. But is it any worse than the attorney in California who tried to get an initiative in the ballot titled "The Sodomy Supression Act" which called for execution of any homosexual "by an immediate bullet to the head, or any such means readily available"? Or supposedly Christian ministers calling for death to homosexuals or condemning them to hell? Or laws banning same sex marriage? Or bullying of gay people of any age?

Gay pride is not about pride in the fact one is gay. It is about taking pride in standing up to bigotry and discrimination.

Now, I am a Christian, but I have nothing against gay people. They have the right to love who they want. But is the act of mocking god way out of line? What's your opinion?

Haha those pictures are great. I <3 blasphemy

Well, you can't treat gays as a sort of monolithic movement. Perhaps you might interpret these actions as being taken too far. But you can't extend that to the entire Gay Pride community, many of which undoubtably wouldn't do something like this.

A bit distasteful, but no more distasteful than those using that religion to deny them the rights they deserve. At the end of the day, that picture makes most people roll their eyes. What Christians do prevents them from getting equality. A bit of a difference.

But, it's free speech.

back in the 1980s Aids was spreading rapidly through the gay population. but not spreading through the monogamous straight population.
There was this idea that if gay men could marry each other they might become monogamous. Straight people didn't take this seriously.
They were too busy talking about how AIDS might a plague that God sent down here to express his opinion about homosexuality. Christian preachers tended to agree with this theory. This started a war between the gays and the religious.
