I would love to see a lot more understanding take place from everyone. A lynch mob is never going to solve anything. Those on the side that homosexuality is wrong feel that they would be turning their back on how they interpret God's law if they allowed homosexuality. Those on the side that homosexuality is right feel that they are being inhumanly repressed from their essential natures and basic human rights if the other side continues. Both are affected by the issue and both feel divinely led in their belief and sense of rightness. Do we know the truth? Both sides say "yes, our side" but in all honesty, no one really knows. We are not going to get anywhere then by attacking the other. We can hope that our side wins through statistics, time, and irrefutable proof, but only time will tell.
I believe that the issue this all started on has been forgotten. Should one actually come back to the root of it all, you will all see that it's a small thing, which though you may personally not understand, dislike, not agree with or vice versa, is but a small thing that matters very little to your cause or self. One person believing one way is not going to end your world. Everyone....just respect her right to feel and believe that way. Promise yourself to change it, dislike that it's out there, tell her that you disagree and why, but don't badger her, insult her, or try to tear her down to make yourself feel better. Stop taking all of this so personally and seriously. It's one person, one belief, one tiny aspect of a genre that you love. I don't want you to close your eyes, pretend it never happen, turn a blind eye to intolerance, but at least try to change the world in a more civil manner.
That's my rant, my opinion, my thoughts. No point in debating the issue with me, as this is how I feel and I am not looking to change that. I do want to express my dislike that its occuring....as I told her before, I may not agree with you, and you may feel that how I live my life is wrong in some ways, but I still like you and respect you for many reasons. First, I respect that you have belief, which in itself is becoming rare to find a person that believes in something more than themselves. Second, I like so many other truly honorable and positive things about you. Don't let this all get you down. For many people, you remain a beautiful person and as for the others, they aren't against you really, they are against the issue. *hugs*
