Nope, not once. Never. He told people to love. He loved the unloved, the lowest of society.
Even when Jesus mentions Sodom and Gomorrah, Jesus doesn’t mention homosexuality. Instead, he compares rude, inhospitable people to the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah.
“If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet as you leave that house or town. Truly I tell you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town. Matthew, 10:14-15
“But whenever you enter a town and they do not welcome you, go out into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off in protest against you. Yet know this: the kingdom of God has come near.’ I tell you, on that day it will be more tolerable for Sodom than for that town.” Luke, 10:10-12.
Jesus is not concerned about whom a man or woman loves. He befriends the outcasts, the lepers, prostitutes, the reviled Samaritans. He even forgives the criminal being crucified next to him.
What’s the message of Jesus?
- Love. Love well, responsibly and with all one’s heart. Love everyone.
