Your comments reflect a fundamental misunderstanding of Baptist theology as it relates to Gays and anyone else. In a simple way, the Baptists believe that doing certain things are wrong.
Simply put, Baptists do not believe that anyone "is Gay." Just as they believe heterosexual adultery is wrong, they believe choosing to have sex with people of the same sex is wrong. They see both as "conduct" that is a sin. Just as people are not born Adulterous, they don't believe anyone is born Gay.
BUT - they do not hate the sinner. Just as they believe that you can save people from adultery, you can save people from gay acts. Indeed, "saving" people from Sin is a fundamental tenant of their faith.
Now, the Gays would have everyone believe that they are born/created/etc Gay. Thus, they believe that their "conduct" could not be a sin and anyone who questions their conduct necessarily "hates" them.
Personally, I don't care if people are gay. It's a free country. They can do what they want.
But, they don't have the right to claim everyone who disagrees with them is a hatemonger.
