The Old Testament tells you that you should stone homosexuals to death (Leviticus 20:13) and the New Testament tells you that God will judge homosexuals adversely (Romans chapter 1) but to say that such ideas are the outcome of fear is a mere assertion without proof. I think it would be more accurate to say that normal people feel an instinctive revulsion against homosexuality and the Bible reflects that.
But one thing that is clear is that Christians follow the New Testament and leave penalties to God. They endeavour to warn those who practice sodomy of the doom to come in the afterlife but they do no harm to those who practice sodomy. To the contrary, they try to draw them into the love of God.
So when Britain's "Gay Police Association" published an advertisement linking the Bible with spilt homosexual blood, they were simply lying.
The advertisement was accompanied by the claim:
"In the last 12 months, the GPA has recorded a 74% increase in homophobic incidents, where the sole or primary motivating factor was the religious belief of the perpetrator."
And how many of those "homophobic incidents" involved bloodshed? I am sure we would all know about it if even one did. The advertisement is clearly just an hysterical attempt to suppress free speech about homosexuality -- because you can bet your bottom dollar that the "incidents" involved nothing more than speech
