Not all Christains are homo-phobes. Shocking, but true. I know, the Bible says homosexuality is bad. Well, there are lists of 'bad' behaviour all throughout the Bible and I'm quite certain I've committed a few 'bad' acts. I'm also quite certain those acts are worse than deciding where to stick what into who's orifice.
With that in mind, I'm hardly qualified to judge one 'bad' from another. I'm also quite certain I lack the wisdom to discern what is 'bad' or 'good' in the context of another person's life.
What brought this on? Well, my co-workers know I'm a Christian (I don't exactly remember how they came to know this, as I don't talk religion at all unless asked about it, but I can assume I was asked about it) and I was the target of some pretty heavy accusations of 'denying people rights' and somesuch crappy. Typical schoolyard stuff, and easily corrected, but it got me to thinking about this topic and how easily misconceptions spread.
Not all Christians are homo-phobes. A good deal of loud Christians are, however, and they are painting us quiet, sane Christians as lunatics. As in all things, better to take it one person at a time, instead of painting with a large brush. It's a helluva lot of trouble getting all that rancid paint off once you've been slathered with it....
Bottom line, I suppose, is to say that I call 'friend' anyone who will have me, and trust God to sort out anything deeper than that. If God exists, I'm quite certain he can do a better job than I can at judging someone; if God doesn't exist then at least I've enjoyed a person for who he/she is, without adding any hardships or bad feelings to their life.
