I hope I don't upset anyone with this post but just have to make my observation on the subject. What subject? The Gay lifestyle everyone seems so worried about. Trying to do all they can to shove these people back into the closet. Don't get me wrong. I don't understand such preferences, but I don't condem them either.
I don't understand how their life should affect the lives or families or marriages of us who live another way. I don't believe in telling others how to live their lives, whether their gay, straight, christian, athiest, Jewish, Muslim, black, red, white, or whatever. It's their life, not mine.
You can't always tell if someone is gay. You surely can't always tell by their looks or professions. Yes there are those that give off that vibe, Liberace was one. Then there are the Rock Hudsonstypes that shock everyone when found out. I have a neighbor who (a sister of a friend) when I was growing up had no idea she was like that, relatives I learned about later. Teachers that surprised me during my life. I've know a few others that completely surprised me, and those that didn't. Did I removed them from circle of friends and aquaintenances. No.
Business who turn people away make me wonder how do they know? It certainly costs them money which most can't afford to lose in this economy.
I guess what I'm saying they are all kinds of people on this earth. Put here by God. I believe it was to teach us all to learn to live, love, learn, be tolerant, not to judge (that's HIS job) as His lessons for us. Just as those who are handicapped in some way, or suffering in other ways. It's to test our patience and faith.
As I said, God put them all here, and God doesn't make mistakes.
