Spot on. Couldn't agree with you more. It's so simple. Sin is hurting things. Why do we have to complicate even the simplest command?

Not sure about republicans, though.

Here's the thing that troubles me about your outlook:

According to many I'd be declared a "bigot", because I believe in my heart, through study of the scripture and the God-given logic my mind uses that homosexuality is a sin. Humans were not intended by God to have same-sex relations.

That said,
1. I would never, and have never, wished harm on a gay person.
2. I don't think God loves me more than any gay person.
3. I don't see myself as more righteous when compared to a gay person.
4. I would never claim to know who is going to hell and who is not, that's God's place.
5. I'm a sinner, just like everyone else in this world, including gay people.

So how am I a bigot? Simply because I interpret the Word of God differently than you? I am morally opposed to homosexuality, among many other sins, and I simply label us ALL as sinners. You label those who "use scripture to proof-text" (aka, have a different opinion than you regarding interpretation of the Bible) as bigots. I find this to be very hypocritical.

One last thing, you said, "I don't think God cares about sex."

Clearly, He does:
1 Corinthians 6:9-20
Galatians 5:16-21
Ephesians 5:3-5
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8
Hebrews 13:4
Revelation 21:8
Genesis 38:9-10

to name a FEW.
