Does the Torah state G-d hates gays?

“The g-d of these people (the israelites ) hates immorality”
Medrash

Correct. In a general sense the Rambam writes that g-d hates any individual that is a sinner:
התשובה מקרבת את הרחוקים, אמש היה זה שנאוי לפני המקום משוקץ ומרוחק ותועבה, והיום הוא אהוב ונחמד קרוב וידיד
but we know the sages tell us that g-d loves every Jew as His child, even when they sin so obviously there are different aspects and nuances and the Rambam must be taken in context...

Is that referring to משכב זכר as well?

I probably would have responded that the Torah calls it a תועבה, but again as mentioned earlier, that is the act, not necessarily the person. Chazal also say similar things about gaavah.

We know that the almost 2000 years ago the sages stated that the culmination of depravity and immorality of the world in the time of Noah was when they started legalizing marriages between male and male (as well as beastiality). It was as that point that g-d was angered to the degree that He decided to destroy the world.

Astoundingly, the sages stated that there is one sign that g-d causes to be displayed to show that he is angry at the imorality of man as in the days of Noah- the sign of the rainbow...

The baby needs giur.  Which is only finalized when the child (consents and) continues doing mitzvos after bar mitzvah.

Just thought I'd put this out there as it seems pertinent to these discussions.

Our gd is loving and merciful, but he is also vengeful and punishing against the wicked.  So all this talk about gds love, needs to be reconciled with the vengeance of the hottest fires of hell, the diseases, the suffering and the destruction that is meted out by him in very exacting measures. It's not all fun and games..

(This is in no way a comment about recent events).
 

שֶׁשׁ־הֵ֭נָּה שָׂנֵ֣א יְהוָ֑ה וְ֝שֶׁ֗בַע (תועבות) [תּוֹעֲבַ֥ת] נַפְשֽׁוֹ׃


  א"ר ישמעאל ק"ו ומה לעשות שלום בין איש לאשתו אמרה תורה שמי שנכתב בקדושה ימחה על המים הללו שמטילין קנאה ואיבה ותחרות בין ישראל לאביהן שבשמים על אחת כמה וכמה ועליהם אמר דוד הלא משנאיך ה' אשנא ובתקוממיך אתקוטט תכלית שנאה שנאתים לאויבים היו לי וכשם שאין מצילין אותן מפני הדליקה כך אין מצילין אותן לא מן המפולת ולא מן המים ולא מדבר המאבדן וכו'.שבת קטז ע"א

The problem is many claim things happened for X or Y when it makes sense to them.

especially when x or y is something they are innocent of.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
