faithfully lgbt

There is a simplistic view of the LGBT conversation by Christians who hold traditional views of scripture. That is to say, no matter what aspect of the multifaceted subject of LGBT lives is being discussed, inevitably, the conversation will be reduced to same-sex sex.
Why is it that no matter what facet of the multi-faceted lives of LGBT people is being discussed, traditionalist Christians inevitably reduce the conversation to same-sex sex?
It’s almost as if Christians who hold traditional views of scripture think about gay sex more than gay people do.
Conversations that have real life implications – homelessness, suicide, hate crimes, equality under the law –  get derailed to an argument over the theology on a few verses in scripture that mention sexual activity between members of the same sex.
