I guess that loving your neighbor/hating the sin isn't working so well for you. You're breaking the ten commandments with that proud declaration. Don't worry: It's just an excuse you've been trained to make for yourself. Once you realize its folly, you can find better paths.
Allowing the usage of vocabulary which has been written for 2000+ years to be used in a 'SINFUL' manner, other than what brought lightheartedness is NOT breaking any commandment. The word GAY was used prior to the WORD happy being used; and globally (big word for you, it means other Continents) gay has been used to explain the emotional of pleasure long before HAPPY was defined.
Take a spelling test once again, and look to dictionaries prior to the past decades propaganda of Media Spin for profit.

How others choose to confuse definitions by creating opposites and interfering with translations which bring about Antagonism when sentences no longer mean the same is NO laughing matter.
Children are not the only ones who understand that Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong; sorry you haven't adjusted to that yet.

Children are not the only ones, true Christians also understand what is right. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength, and your neighbor as God loves you. Truth!!

The exchange of bodily fluid in sexual manner between two people of the same sex is the most UNHEALTHY, unsanitary, and inhumane act people on this planet could possibly do, as it does cause permanent derogatory chemical system changes within ones anatomy, often disease which cannot be cured by any shots ever to be created...(TRUE ACTUALLY, may sound strange to some who still believe in miracles, but NOT going to happen).
Health class does not teach near enough about the subject, in fact leaves people swimming in questions as deviant Sex is not to be taught in school yet education needs to Ring loud from communities regarding the truth.
What is even MORE pitiful are people using photography and imagery to destroy peoples reputations and spread lies regarding their purity and avoidance, when photoshop and forceful togetherness demanded by violent manner allows video and photography, which removes some peoples opportunity to work in fields of Health and Medical Science, Law, and other social works in communitys which pay particular interest to those details.
What does this ridiculous rant have to do with my post???

Reading a dictionary or etymology will not change the hatred that tears at your heart. Why do you find it so easy to despise others? Why are you so proud of that?
