Supporters of gays need to be very, very careful what you mean by support.

Romans 1:32 "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."

The phrase "have pleasure" in the above passage is "syneudokeō" in the Greek with the following definitions according to Strong's Concordance:
I.to be pleased together with, to approve together (with others)

II.to be pleased at the same time with, consent, agree to

A.to applaud

Vines Expository dictionary gives examples:

Consent:
lit., "to think well with" (sun, "with," eu, "well," dokeo, "to think"), to take pleasure with others in anything, to approve of, to assent, is used in Luk 11:48, of "consenting" to the evil deeds of predecessors (AV, "allow"); in Rom 1:32, of "consenting" in doing evil; in Act 8:1; 22:20, of "consenting" to the death of another. All these are cases of "consenting" to evil things. In 1Cr 7:12, 13, it is used of an unbelieving wife's "consent" to dwell with her converted husband, and of an unbelieving husband's "consent" to dwell with a believing wife (AV, "be pleased;" RV, "be content").
See ALLOW, CONTENT, PLEASE.

God hates the SIN and loves the SINNER.. Christ finished work on the cross if to cleanse the SINNER. We can emulate this too. We dont have to condemn or judge people in the act, but we should condemn the act. May God help us all
