Christians don't threaten anyone with damnation, it is not within their power to damn people. Christianity teaches that everyone is already headed for damnation despite their sexual aberration or lack of belief, because of their sins. Christians offer a message which they believe is a solution to a problem which they think exists for everyone. The mention of hell is not a threat as much as an offer of help, much like a dentist who shows pictures of rotten teeth to his patients.
