    If the old definition is anti-religious, then for the sake of peace and safety it should be rewritten.
    I suggest following politically correct definition:

    Homophobia - hatred against homosexuals.

    People who have children understand that we love our children even if we don't like or agree with what they are doing.



    This song below "Sandra: Maria Magdalena" teaches how to hate the sin (Lust) but love sinner:



    "A recent Otago University study has found that homosexual or bisexual individuals are more likely to have undergone a variety of traumas in childhood, including sexual assault, rape, violence, and witnessing violence in the home." (2010)

    Study: Homosexuality Linked with Childhood Trauma

    It is interesting. So, in a better world there would be less homosexuality, I guess. Tough times, tough sexuality.

    Then my Religion is scientifically disproven. Science can not disprove any of religions. Thus, we are not homophobic!!!!

    Not the old, "Hate the sin, love the sinner" argument?

    No, you lack an ability here to reason logically. That is all. It can happen quite often with personal issues.

    Yes your religion is homophobic and if you agree with this position and act in accordance to it you are homophobic yourself.

    Dogma can be, and often is, homophobic. It is not a valid excuse.

    Technically, homophobia is a fear of homosexuality. Whereas your religion, as I understand it, is more an expression of sexual bigotry: that is the irrational loathing of homosexuality. Either way, though, it's certainly not something to be proud of. Especially when it rises to the level of actual hatred.

    You really don't get logic, do you? Your religion is homophobic but that can't scientifically disprove it. Science can disprove some religions (at least to the extent it can disprove anything - by providing evidence that contradicts it) - literal, seven day, six thousand years ago creationism, for example.

    It is the anti-Christian definition. The right definition: homophobia is sexually motivated hatred against people.

    Wrong. I have proven the Riemann Hypothesis!!!

    Wrong.

    It is not homophobic.

    I understand.
    But we are not speaking of a crime.
    We are speaking of two people who love each other. Even if of the same gender.

    From love nothing bad ever comes.

    Your denial is noted as is your utter lack of reasonning. If you don't like answers; don't ask questions.

    Is my Religion Homophobic?

    Why did you ask when you clearly have no intention of considering the validity of any of our answers?

    Nope, the linguistic root of "homophobia" is fear of homosexuality. The definition of homosexality is the following according to te Oxford dictionnary.

    ho·mo·pho·bi·a
    /ˌhōməˈfōbēə/

    noun
    1. dislike of or prejudice against gay people.

    Fear is only one form of dislike and prejudiciable attitute and does not encompass the full range of homophobia.

    It is a rhetorical question. I can not destroy my own Religion here. I love my Religion, and I hate homophobia.

    Yes, your religion is homophobic. It's not safe to be homosexual in countries where your religion is dominant.

    You are an Eastern Orthodix Christian acording to your own profile. It's not safe to be homosexual in Russia or Hungary where your religion is dominant. It's safer to be gay in Turkey or Cyprus than Russia. Thus, your islamophobia is also noted.
