So how do I feel on the issue of gays? Well ... some of my best friends are gay. In fact, my VERY best friend was gay. I could go on and on but, in short, I love the gay community. Pretty much always have. And yet, I would be the first to agree that homosexuality is a sin. So is premarital sex. It does not matter that said lifestyles are widely accepted now.
Elizabeth found an article written by a gay person who stands up for the rest of us and our rights to our feelings, beliefs and our opinions about homosexuality being a sin. Thought I'd share it with you. I know I'm sticking my neck out here ... but I like this guy. I have a friend that will most likely be unfriending me on Facebook ... but I wanted to take a moment to clear some heavy air. And remember, my best friend was gay. She is not with us anymore (she passed away in 2009) but she shared a lot of opinions and views with me during her lifetime. I understand being gay better than most people around me. And I understand everything she went though regarding her lifestyle choices.
So, as we enter 2014, I have a million and one resolutions to uphold. Tolerance is high on the list. But so is standing up for what I believe in.
