Why are there gay people who claim to be christian?

It's literally against the religion to be gay, so why are there people who think they can be both?

    Jesus knew that there would be people who would call him "Lord", but disobey God.  They are just kidding themselves about going to heaven (Mt 7:21-23).

    As far as why?, different people have different motives.  Some want to go to heaven, but don't want to give up sin, so they come up with all sorts of rationalizations why the Bible doesn't actually mean what it clearly says (1Cor 6:9).

    The rich man in the story (Lk 16:19-31) is a classic case where a Jew thought he could ignore God's command to "love your neighbor" without repercussions.

    No, it's against the religion to engage in sexual conduct outside of hetero marriage. Fornicators are not much different from people who have gay sex.

    The one Church Jesus Christ founded, to which He promised the fullness of God's truth, has many homosexual members in good standing. They live their lives as God calls them to live, just like the heterosexual members. Sexual orientation is not a moral issue, since it is not freely chosen. Sexual behavior is a moral issue, regardless of one's orientation, because it is freely chosen.

    For the same reason many Christian people claim to follow Christ. So many have forgotten all about the Golden Rule.....and so many are ready to cast the first stone....in fact they are eager to stone others to death and proud of their intolerance........

    Most of today's Christians have instilled into people they have "free will" with catholics demonstrating!

    1. Because they were born gay. There's nothing they can do about it.

    2. They grew up and have been "educated" in a Christian family, so they believe in the Christian stuff.

    So simple.

    If this is a problem for them or for their Church, provided they live under freedom of religion, they can choose another Church that accepts them, or no religion at all.

      @Ye: NO
      You can decide to alter your sexual behavior against your true nature. 
      (Imagine you're born in a world where homosexuality is mandatory! )

      Sexual orientation is determined between 6th and 12th weeks of pregnancy by levels of hormones exposure and can be tested as soon as 3 months old.

    Its easy because the whole thing is a big hoax. There is no god and no hell. Homosexuals can claim to be whatever they want. They have nothing to fear.
