"I am gay. Do you still love me?"

I am gay. Do you still love me?

That is such a simple, straight forward, innocent and poignant question.

I like his message. And as a Catholic I clearly understand his position. However many Catholics around here will tell you that they are not homophobic at all. Quite the contrary. They will tell you they are very pro gay and that they love gay people. They love us by telling us the truth. They claim true love for another person sometimes hurts. It sometimes involves telling them things they do not want to hear. In this case, the "truth" according to them is that we are going to hell unless we change our lifestyle.

How charming. ::)

Yep, that's so very true, David. And it looks to me like his friends in the pic do,  indeed, love him.  :D

Don't you just love that tired old line about loving the sinner but hating the sin?  What a crock!  :-\   ::)
