You cannot be a true Christian if you are actively committing the biblical sin of being gay. Leviticus 18:22

Pro

Sure, you may not be a true crazy extremist Christian but are still a Christian.

Con

A real Christian will always repent and turn away from their sin and will always eventually return to God, and then might resume the struggle against sin. But the Bible gives no support for the idea that a person who perpetually and unrepentantly engages in sin can indeed be a Christian. First Corinthians 6:9-10 lists sins that, if engaged in continuously, identify a person as not being redeemed/not being a Christian. If the phrase "gay Christian" refers to a person who actively, perpetually, and unrepentantly lives a homosexual lifestyle " no, it is not possible for such a person to truly be a Christian.

Pro

give me a quote from the Bible that says that being gay is a sin.

Now this is a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air

In West Philadelphia, born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool
And all shootin' some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket
I put my Walkman on and said "I might as well kick it"
First class, yo, this is bad
Drinkin' orange juice out of a champagne glass
Is this what the people of Bel-Air livin' like?
Hmmm, this might be all right
But wait, I hear they're prissy, bourgeois, and all that
Is this the type of place that they just sent this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the Prince of Bel-Air

Well, uh, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude looked like a cop standin' there with my name out
I ain't tryin' to get arrested yet, I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said 'Fresh' and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought "Nah, forget it, yo holmes, to Bel-Air!"

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie "Yo holmes, smell ya later"
Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air

If gays follow the bible they would live their lives alone and unloved.
A person's sexuality is like belief, in that, it is not a choice, and it has to be a choice or it is not a sin?
How do you justify your hatred, persecution and marginalizing gay people without it being a sin?

According to the bible, God sees all sin as equally bad. So if you tell a lie at some point in your life, I guess you are not christian?

Homosexuality is just another sin, no different than lying and murder, as the bible never states that any sin is worse than another. To judge someone off of their homosexuality to a sin of itself. The only argument to this is that being homosexual and acting on it leads to a person ACTIVELY sinning (on purpose). So just keep this in mind fellow Christians: we are in no way, shape, or form better than homosexuals. We are all sinners.
