My daughter came home today and told me that this boy she has known for 8 years told her today that he hates gays. She was shocked because this came out of nowhere. She told him he shouldn't hate and judge an entire group of people like that and he had the nerve to ask her if she believed in the bible. She then asked him 'what's that got to DO with anyTHING'?
She asked him why exactly he hated gays and he didn't have an answer beyond calling HER a Liberal and walking away.
I'm thinking he is being fed bible based hatred for gays AND Liberals from someone in his home and that makes sad.

Hatred is learned and this boy is learning it in his home (or from someone he is with a lot). I stepped away from church for a while for several reasons. The main one was because a pastor said that Christians are too tolerant. If anything, they are not too tolerant enough. I got tired of the church telling people that being gay is a sin. I honestly don't believe that it is a sin. I think that society deems what things are sins. I wish there were more pastors like this one- http://the-wopr.newsvine.com/_news/2013/09/19/20572264-church-members-mistreat-homeless-man-in-church-unaware-it-is-their-pastor-in-disguise
