I really need someone, anyone, to respond to this for me. These are the same questions I ask. I don't want rhetoric. I don't want pat answers. I don't want to be fed a party line or a religious creed. I want to know why/how one can justify such hatred and intolerance with scripture. If the bible is what you believe is your standard for measurement of action and motive, show me chapter and verse. I want an intelligent conversation.
Any personal attacks will NOT be posted. I want real honest answers. Because seriously people, these are the issues that matter and they are the issues that cause me to really struggle. This is where I have no desire to be associated with "Christians". And this is only one issue.
Please, someone help me understand.
