Take out 'gay.' Put in 'black' or 'Jewish'

I've got a new thought. Every time a member of the opposition plays the "I'm being picked on and called a bigot simply because I believe in Christian values" card, they should be made aware of this video featuring - your friend and mine - Matt Barber and Steve Crampton. I mean you want to talk about bigotry, ignorance, and homophobia defined in less than three minutes, take a gander. The hate here is so universal that you could substitute the word "African-American" or "Jewish" for "homosexual" without batting an eye:

This made me . And to think that there are many more out there who think like this. I was recently all but told that I was going to Hell by a close family friend, one who I called Aunt, because I supported gay marriage. She kept trying to use examples from the Bible, but I kept it civil on my part and didn't bash her religion, though I easily could have. I have actually had preachers QUIT after I talked to them, because I knew more about their scripture than they did and poked holes in everything they were trying to say.

there is nothing two men, or two women can/would/might do that a woman and a man don't do...

He said homosexuals base their entire identity on their sex lives?

No, I fear that is something people like him do to us. Have these people even met a gay person? Of course they have, but did they actually think to talk about it with and try to see their perspective?

Where do they even get these ideas?

I recommend putting in the words "white" or "Christian" and see how that goes down. ;-)

When they pull the "christian values" card I just point out that they've just shown why I'm not a christian. I'd rather have good strong Wiccan values. They don't tell someone they're sinners for existing.

Fortunately I am not, don't know, and have never met "the average homosexual." Everyone I know is extraordinary.
