Jerusalem syndrome (or Jesus complex as it's also called) is a disorder. Since Obama came out for marriage equality, a lot of disordered individuals have made their voices heard on the issue. What you begin to realize is a lot of people are deeply afflicted by this disorder. When you lose any sense of reality and are completely influenced by the beliefs of your chosen God, then you have Jerusalem syndrome.

Bible can say w/e it wants, at the end of the day it's just another science fiction nonsense similar to Scientology/Islam/Judaism/Christianity or any other doctrine that features omni potent sorceres who created everything because they felt like it

I take a quick peek back into this thread out of curiosity and discover that it has been infected with a severe case of Filo V.

At such a point, the only option is quarantine or termination.

But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also". These teachings could not be any less compatible and yet, they are both in the bible. Thus, you cannot claim it's an objective truth that christianity supports "an eye for an eye", nor can you claim the opposite, because the bible is contradictory, for obvious and previously mentioned reasons. What the overall belief system advocates and condemns is a matter of interpretation. Christians are left to chose between contradictory doctrines. It's very intellectually dishonest to single out the bad quotes, reject the compassionate ones and go "this is what objective christians should believe", as you have done repeatedly in this thread. No doubt inspired by war-mongerer Hitchens, whom you definitely do not worship!
Oh for fuck's sake... we're discussing homosexuality in the bible. That is what I was addressing. The compassionate bits of the bible, which certainly exist, were irrelevant to this discussion.

Good that you admitted that the bible is contradictory though. So much for an objective, stable moral guideline.
