Huh, It seems like you seem to have selectively read a lot of this book, Jed. Let's take a look at why your hatred and bigotted viewpoint is actually the antithesis of God's love and redemption message.

First, Jesus reminds us of the most important commandment.

Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

LOVE OTHERS AS YOURSELVES. Love is not telling someone the way their creator made them is wrong. God is all things. God is male and female. God is in control of all things. To think God couldn't create a man who could also be a woman is limiting God. God is not just grace, he is also love. God is love, acceptance, and duality. One but also 3. Therefor, to classify any of god's creations as wrong or immoral, instead cast you as the immoral one because you are forsaking loving others as yourself.

But, if Jed is casting stones, he must be blameless though, no? For didn't Christ also say," 1“Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. 2For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3Why do you see the speck in your neighbor's eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor's eye."

How then could any Christian point at anyone being amoral without first being amoral. Christ says specifically love. Love even that which you do not understand because THAT is the true way of Christ.

Jed is showing himself nothing but a pharisee preaching in a temple Jesus would ransack. Jed misses the single greatest commandment because he believes he knows better than God. Jed should be ashamed.
