Christians who are opposed to homosexuality aren't haters, they are just against what the Bible states is immoral behavior. Christians are able to separate the sinner from the sin. In fact, Christians are called to love others. It is just that loving people does not mean automatically blessing their behavior, just as a parent who loves their child will still not tolerate their bad behavior.
And, I agree with "jus love it" - there is a lot more intolerance coming from the activist gay community than there is from Christians.

Your name says it all. Maybe they should pass a law saying you HAVE to eat meat at least 3 times a week.

i disagree...you can hate the sin and love the sinner. just because your life is contrary to the teachings of the bible and you want to manipulate it, still doesn't make it right. you can have a minister that lack an understanding of the bible and get manipulated by men, still doesn't make it the word of god. so why twist it for the rest of us. sure you can cite all the other religions that got married, but the weddings were performed for male and female. we do dictate in accordance to morals and the law. it is by those morals laws are created. its is by men's design to create more laws and toss out the ones they don't want. are those laws sometimes in accordance with god's teaching, no.
i do tolerate gays, and believe they have the right to do what they want as long as it isn't in the mainstream and start creating laws and rules to practice their behavior in public. i also hate it when they (gays) seem to have more protection from the law, than most people, when it comes to hate crimes or they stir the pot when people who don't accept homosexuality as a norm...they seem to go looney tossing around the hate word, while inciting riots and hating on they so called haters...sometimes you need to follow your own creed and not practice hate but tolerance too...so tolerate Obama's choice. Its his wish its his inauguration.
Go back and reread your quote and count how many times you say "hate." You're a hater who can't get over it. That is not the message Jesus taught. Only confused fundamentalists take the Bible literally to support their twisted notions. This is how religious wars are started -- and we thought we were making a difference in Iraq went haters like you exist in our own country. I hope you get a taste of your own medicine. Bless you!

So I guess it's okay for Christians to not tolerate the bad behavior of haoles. I'm so glad intolerant people like you went away from here to Fort Bragg.

To Zoomer,

Wow. You are one angry person. You certainly seem intolerant. What in the world gives you the impression that I am a hater? Are you unable to distinguish between being opposed to a person's actions vs. hating the person? There is a difference. I will say a special prayer for you tonight. Have a happy new year, Zoom.

Keep your prayers to yourself -- nobody is listening, "God" has better things to do with "His" time. There -- my new year is better already.
