It appears to me that there are two issues here: 1) Whether homosexuality is a 'sin' as defined in the Bible, and 2) The treatment ('hatred and intolerance') of homosexuals by many who profess Christ. I'll discuss issue two first... When Jesus met the Samaritan woman at the well and asked her for a drink, he was breaking a number of social rules. Jews and Samaritans did not get along, and a 'polite' man would not speak to a woman in public in such a way. Further, she was a sinful woman, and bound for Hell. Yet, Jesus was kind and loving through the conversation. THAT is how Christians should respond to homosexuals. Take note, however, that although He showed love, He did not condone here lifestyle. That leads me to the other point... The number of times the Bible says something should not be an indicator of how 'right' or 'wrong' it is. Simply put, if the Bible says it six times, then it is true. It is not up to us to determine that we decide otherwise because it doesn't meet some arbitrary number or mentions...
