Appearing yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Osteen told host Chris Wallace, “I believe the Scripture says that being gay is a sin. But, you know, every time I say that, Chris … people say, well, you are a gay hater and you’re a gay basher. I’m not. I don’t — I don’t dislike anybody. Gays are some of the nicest, kindest, most loving people in the world. But my faith is based on what I believe the Scripture says, and that’s the way I read the Scripture.”
What do you think? Does believing homosexuality is wrong mean that you are a “gay basher?” I only left two options in the poll, I suppose only reply if you have strong feelings either way. There is a whole lot of room in the middle to debate what exactly it means, and that can be done in the comments!
