Well, that's the difference between you and me, then. I choose to defend those who I perceive to be unfairly attacked by others, and NOBODY will guilt me into changing that. I stand by my decision to befriend Jeff (and all that entails) because I believe that he is a nice person who has simply been pushed beyond the limits of what any human being would be able to withstand. I assert that ANYONE would push back when put into his position.<quoted text>Please feel free to continue defending him, that's your call. Personally, I'm a little more choosy about who I associate with regardless of sexual orientation, but, have fun.
You're entitled to your opinion, but nothing you can say will make me question my decision to defend a fellow human being who I believe is being treated poorly by those who also purport to be "human beings."
