Remove their hateful billboard that says "Homosexuality is Sin"

Given that these people are "Christians" in the sense that they believe and follow every word in the Bible, then they are completely wrong in making this "assumption." It is common for people to selectively use verses from the Bible to make a point without first understanding the background, meaning and true intent of that verse. I'm assuming that this billboard is based upon Leviticus 18:6, which reads: "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female. It is an abomination." A similar verse occurs two chapters later, in Leviticus 20:13: "A man who sleeps with another man is an abomination and should be executed." On the surface, these words could leave you feeling rather uneasy, especially if you are gay. But just below the surface is the deeper truth about God -- and it has nothing to do with sex.

Leviticus is a holiness code written 3,000 years ago. This code includes many of the outdated sexual laws we mentioned earlier, and a lot more. It also includes prohibitions against round haircuts, tattoos, working on the Sabbath, wearing garments of mixed fabrics, eating pork or shellfish, getting your fortune told, and even playing with the skin of a pig. (There goes football!)
Once again, people are using portions of a greater picture without understanding the true intent. While there isn't enough room here to say much more, it behooves those who wish to condemn others based upon convenient selection of Bible verses to do their homework first.

More explanation is available at: This sign MUST be taken down because it is baseless in its assumptions and without concern for the true meaning of God's Love.
