If there were people out there wanting to legalize drunk driving and you were against it, that doesn't mean you hate them. Even if you ask your friends to vote against legalizing drunk driving, that doesn't mean you hate them. Legalizing gay marriage is against what Christians believe, so of course we're going to be against it and it's our right to be so. Doesn't mean we hate them. Doesn't mean we want them to die. It just means that we don't agree with that and if we have every right to speak up on that issue as they have the right to promote it.
Chad, drunk driving kills people and is against the law. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt on this one and assume that this is just a very bad example because comparing homosexuality to drunk driving may be seen by some to be highly offensive.
btw - I don't believe that legalizing gay marriage is against what all Christians believe.
Sorry, I didn't read your former posts. That's the trouble with trying to keep on top of everything, you start to take shortcuts just to participate. I'll go back and read them.
