16. This stuff about "true christians" always bothers me
because it allows christians to keep being homophobic, learning and teaching and spreading homophobia in their churches and through their religion while claiming that their religion has no part in what is going on. Only saints are apparently true christians, so christianity is always faultless, even though all this hatred is perpetrated by people of intense faith because of their intense faith.

It is their christian doctrine that is teaching and validating this homophobia. Whether it's perfect or "true" christianity is beside the point. It is definitely real christianity.
