After the exchange the other day, I have been thinking a lot about this issue. I am a straight guy. I was never overly judgmental about sexual orientation, but never really thought much about it. I never knew any gay people and it never really came up except in jokes and wise cracks. Well, I guy moved next door to us about 10 years ago. We became really good friends. After a few years, he tells me he's gay. Our relationship stayed the same because nothing really changed. Over the years I got to know his friends, and guess what, they are all good people too. And, except for their sexual orientation are no different than straights. If you are religious and find peace and comfort in your faith, I am happy for you, but I find it hard to believe that your God or Book would instruct you to harbor hate, prejudice or judgment for anyone because of their sexual orientation. I don't mean to start a debate, but felt compelled to share this.
