What religious people have against gays/Lesbians and transgenders?
They are human beings too. In matter of fact, they a lot of them are way more educated than religious people. No its not a sin not choice to be gay. I rather be friends with transgenders and gays than fundamental religious nuts.

god made gays so orphans would have families. it astonishes me that ignorant bigots would rather see millions of babies murdered by abortion than use their head. there's no such thing as transgender.

Certainly if you read the Bible in most popular translations, it is an extremely homophobic document in places. There is nothing to suggest it's even remotely transphobic though, so I don't know where they get that from.

Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption... No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education.
There are many reasons why it is forbidden in in all regions. Homosexuality is dangerous for the health of the individuals and for the society. It is a main cause of one of the most harmful and fatal diseases. It is disgraceful for both men and women. It degrades a person. All religions teaches that men should be men and women should be women. Homosexuality deprives a man of his manhood and a woman of her womanhood. It is the most un-natural way of life. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of family life.

Some clergymen argue in favor of homosexuality, claiming that Jesus never spoke against it. But is that really so? Jesus Christ declared that God’s Word is truth. (John 17:17) That means that he endorsed God’s view of homosexuality as described at Leviticus 18:22, which reads: “You must not lie down with a male the same as you lie down with a woman. It is a detestable thing.” Moreover, Jesus listed fornication and adultery among the “wicked things [that] issue forth from within and defile a man.” (Mark 7:21-23) The Greek word for fornication is a broader term than that for adultery. It describes all forms of sexual relations outside lawful marriage, including homosexuality. (Jude 7) Jesus Christ also warned his followers not to tolerate any professed Christian teacher who minimizes the seriousness of fornication.—Revelation 1:1; 2:14, 20.
When religious leaders campaign for the ordination of homosexuals and Lesbians, what effect does this have on members of their churches, especially the young people? Is it not an inducement to experiment with sex outside marriage? In contrast, God’s Word urges Christians to “flee from fornication.” (1 Corinthians 6:18) If a fellow believer falls into such sin, loving help is given with a view to restoring the person to God’s favor. (James 5:16, 19, 20) What if this help is rejected? The Bible states that unless such ones repent, they ‘will not inherit God’s kingdom.’—1 Corinthians 6:9, 10.

If, by the term religious people, you mean CHRISTIANS then our answer will be that the bible shows clearly that the behaviour of those people is completely against the Word of God. Christians believe that the bible is to be honoured and acted upon when appropriate. Gay sex relationships are clearly called SINFUL in the bible. If you don't wish to read it, or you read it but then decide to not believe it or say it's rubbish, that is your prerogative but, to Christians, it IS the Word of God and we follow it's teaching just as God wishes us to do. The bible says that 'for a man to be with a man as he would be with a woman' is sinful and it refers to women who live that way as 'behaving in ways that are unnatural'.
Those who don't believe in God and His Son Jesus will live as they choose to live but they should then not expect God to approve of their behaviour or bless their lives in the many ways that He would wish to do.

I have nothing against the person but the Bible condemns the conduct. 1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God’s Kingdom? Do not be misled. Those who are sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, men who submit to homosexual acts, men who practice homosexuality, 10 thieves, greedy people, drunkards, revilers, and extortioners will not inherit God’s Kingdom. 11 And yet that is what some of you were. But you have been washed clean; you have been sanctified; you have been declared righteous in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God

"What religious people have against" lgbtq people.
NOTHING at least many of them, I'm lgbtq, and my christian denomination and congregation DOES NOT have an issue with that, based on their interpretation of scripture. It's the conservative denominations (LEADERSHIP) that considers lgbtq people sinful, it's the evangelical and conservative denominations that believe they have some god given right to impose their theology onto lgbtq people in public sector law (that is where the christian / lgbtq rub is), these evangelical and conservative denominations have developed a persecution complex believing that they are the victims of lgbtq people when they are forced by law to treat lgbtq people as EQUAL citizens in the public square - aka NONDISCRIMINATION LAWS (such as ""sex"", race, religion, age, disabilities, ect.), they are upset that they can't force pray the gay/trans away onto minor children in many states, a practice that has been deemed fraudulent AND harmful by all the major American medical groups, The so called christians who believe in public sector discrimination are truly sick people, America IS NOT a theocracy, Christ NEVER promoted discrimination, let alone in his name, even ""IF"" ""YOU"" believe lgbtq people (or other groups of people) are sinners.
The fact that some religious people believe lgbtq people are sinners, IS NOT the problem or issue. The problem is that conservative denominations believe they have a right to impose their theology (discrimination) onto lgbtq people (OR ANYONE ELSE THEY DEEM TO BE A SINNER) in the public square by claiming a ""religious liberty"" exemption to a non-discrimination law that anyone else must abide by - a right that they do not have.
The other problem is that these so called christians CLAIMS that all ""christianity"" condemns lgbtq people, but christianity DOES NOT, it is only THEIR interpretation of scripture that believes that, as christianity is not one big monolithic religion united in all areas of theology.

Well as it turns out, there has been widespread sexual abuse in the Catholic Church and in Boy Scouts Of America. BOTH predominantly male on male. Hypocrisy at its finest!

You've asked a really great question. Why is it important for anyone to be "against" anyone else. My grandfather's motto and what he lived by was "live and let live". What possible difference can it make to anyone if a person is gay or bi or trans? How does any of that impact on anyone else's life? Really Tommy, all anyone needs to do is to live her/his life to the best possible way and be the best possible person s/he is capable of being.
