Bible and Islamic texts say to harm gays, so we brought forward the good parts of these religions, but not the harm gays parts.
- If it were up to us, we’d let gays into “heaven” (if any), and avoid “hell”. Love gays as equals [xxxxxxxxlink!!!]! Gays are not hurting you, are better for the planet [xxxxxxxxxxxlink!!!!!], and have contributed many many things to the world (Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, etc.) At the Center For Scientific Humanism, we believe we have the least racist, least misogynistic, and least homophobic belief system in the world. Join us in making the world a better place!

- And the New Testament is just as intolerant toward homosexuals.
- For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (God will make you gay!) Romans 1:26-27
