To clarify, I'll give the following example.
Person A is a Christian of some denomination. Person B is an atheist homosexual.
Person A claims a friendship with Person B, while voting against giving Person B and others like Person B legal rights, saying regularly (usually while not around Person B) that homosexuality is a sin and that they don't agree with the lifestyle at all, and holding up said friendship with Person B as an example of how tolerant they are for being good friends with a homosexual despite being against that person's lifestyle and thinking they're unfit to marry and raise children.
Can a genuine friendship exist under these circumstances? Can a person genuinely be totally against basically who a person is, how they life their life, belittle them and who they are regularly, but still be a real, good friend?
In the example I gave, no, it wasn't a genuine friendship on the part of Person A, time has revealed. I just can't imagine any situations where it would be.
