My church? What a strange thing to say to an atheist.

"You" as in the theoretical Christian who has "misunderstood" the teachings of their religion.

Given The Bible does not disallow homosexuality explicitly ... don't bother with the tedious practice of telling me what the Bible says
The passages used to justify homophobia are not restricted to the Old Testament[^]. But I didn't tell you that, because doing so would be "tedious".

The hadith ... is a book that Muslims follow regardless of their sect.
Really?
Unlike the Qur'an, not all Muslim believe Ahadith accounts (or at least not all ahadith accounts) are divine revelation. ... Different collections of Aḥādīth would come to differentiate the different branches of the Islamic faith. A small minority of Muslims called Quranists reject all Ḥadīth.

But is one worse than the other?
Obviously killing a child is worse than bullying a child into committing suicide.

But that doesn't mean that either is acceptable.
