I just hope you don't include me as one of those Christians. I'm gay so that really messes with their "Love they neighbor" slogans.<quoted text>

They often say love the sinner hate the sin. But it's me they pick on. I am a person of Faith. I believe we have a spiritual side and a soul. You may agree or disagree, I don't care.
