to judge people to hell or heaven, it's our job to teach about sin. Once again I will tell you, you are posting verses out of context, and know nothing about the Bible. And once again I will ask you to read the whole Bible and not just scriptures you find on your atheist sites.

Don't judge others in one passage, but then on another you're allowed.
BTW, the "Atheist website" I go to is actually a bible website which allows you to look up certain key words within the bible.
I post them as proof of how ridiculous and contradictory the bible really is.
I don't need to use atheist websites, the bible itself makes my job easy.
The book is filled with convoluted, nonsensical passages that can be interpreted a million ways.
Christains want to cherry pick....so will I.
I'm just playing their game.Logic and Reason is all you need.

Homosexuality is a sin as per the bible.
But it's wrong to say those practicing homosexuality are sinning.
That makes no sense. That's like saying it's okay to believe in gravity but not okay to say so."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

Does the bible not make it easy to interpret things a million different ways?
But why is it that despite these two facts, many christians have such a big problem with gays?
Sure it is a sin (according to a book) but so is many other things which christians don't care too much about.....and yes, I'm talking about NT stuff.
Divorce for example is still not allowed as per the NT.....and yet in a nation of about 80% self proclaimed christians, more than 50% of the population get divorces (Just going by statistics, that means the majority of divorces are by christians).....clearly they don't care about this particular law.
Fornication is also not allowed.....and yet, a study shows that 95% of Americans have pre-martial sex (AKA Fornication!)

C'mon man, you might not like the way I say things and I'm OK with that, but you can't deny the absurdity that is the bible.

Wickabee, the biggest problem with Christianity is in fact the bible.
It allows certain christians to twist and turn everything into their own ideology.
Did you know a big reason why slavery remained legal in the U.S for so long was because the slave owners justified it with the bible?
Remember in the OT, the Bible clearly endorses slavery, and the NT doesn't say anything against slavery either.Logic and Reason is all you need.
