    I am not a perfect human being, of course my personal understanding will be different than God. I have not Gods wisdom

    Well, you see to have changed your position somewhat. You are now admitting that you don't necessarily agree with god's perfect morality and sometimes think your own personal morality is better.
    Which is a start!
    But then one has to wonder what the point of god is.

    Ah, so now you are saying that if you disagree with god's morality, you are wrong?
    So why do you disagree?

    Did i say i disagree with God? No, I said my understanding is not as clear as Gods wisdom. I can not see the truth at Gods higher wisdom level. meaning I will be wrong in my understanding, but the teaching guides me toward a more clear understanding

    So homophobic is agreeing that the Bible God is the just and good judge of the world.
    But do we know how God is going to judge anyone?

    You were.

    That someone was me.

    Seeing the good in others and loving people isn't dangerous nonsense. That is the approach I take with those who identify as gay.

    No one is claiming we should overlook the actions of a pedophile and it is clearly not the Baha'i position.

    Sometime, because the person's conscience is bothering them, they react. Just continue loving the person remembering that God loves them too.

    I worship and believe in the One I see as the Source of Everything as a result of experience and faith. Label me as you see fit.
    Perhaps this shows that other people's worlds aren't necessarily as black and white as yours, and that not all people are as opinionated as you, regardless of what the scriptures say according to your interpretation.

    There is a vast difference in not believing in homosexuality and attacking, demeaning,
    So although we don’t believe in homosexuality we abhor all forms of hatred and bigotry against homosexuals.


    To regard homosexuals with prejudice and disdain would be entirely against the spirit of Bahá'í Teachings. The doors are open for all of humanity to enter the Cause of God, irrespective of their present circumstances; this invitation applies to homosexuals as well as to any others who are engaged in practices contrary to the Bahá'í Teachings.

    Yes. We love and accept all and condemn no one. We must forever seek to perfect our selves and never despise others.

    But if you worship that god, follow that god, condors that god's word and action to be perfect - then it is kinda your business.
    You can't vote for a leader, knowing what their policies are, and then claim it's nothing to do with you when they implement those policies.

    Indeed.
    And if a Christian said they weren't anti-witch, but it was morally acceptable for call for the death of witches, I would call them out on their hypocrisy.

    God put down some guidelines for how to live. If God see people doing different, it is between God and that person, not between me judging other human through God

    Ok. So even though you don't think homosexuality is immoral or evil or a sexual aberration that needs purging from the world, you think you are wrong to think this and you accept god's position on the issue as morally superior.

    I can see why you feel confused.

    Ok. So you agree with everything god says, even if you don't understand it.
    So you "blindly follow" god on the issue of homosexuality. You simply accept that it is immoral, evil, sexual aberration that needs purging from the world, but you don't know why it is.

    Is condemning homosexuality and persecuting homosexuals because of what god says, homophobic?
    Yes, absolutely!
