I support legal equality for heterosexual and same-sex relationships, but I think the gay community has provided a stick to their opponents which which to beat them by choosing the term ''marriage'', which treads on so many religious toes. Would it not have been wiser to avoid homophobic susceptibilites by selecting terms like ''civil unions'', ''legal partnerships'' or something similar ?

I would suggest psychiatric help but temper losing people use their temper to control others to get others to do as they want. As for Zacheus he was hanging out of a tree waiting for Jesus and the woman washing his feet was already a follower. Homosexuals I know only want to get the church and Christians to say yes to their sexual habit worship, to get the respect of the church and to make sure they don't have to give up anything like worshiping their sin to worship and follow Jesus. Jesus said to leave those who won't accept my word and move on to those who will. Some people are to be left to their sin and won't be saved when he returns and judges us. Your attitude as a Christian is not my attitude as a Christian. I would rather spend my time which is limited in our human existence to those really needing help, the dying, the poor, children, survivors, those in sex trades, etc. and not to two men having sex with each other because they don't like women which is the real truth.

Interesting. When I came to recognize the blessing of God's grace it was because I understood the depth of my sin. When I realized how far I had fallen only then was I able to accept grace. So, it isn't that a Christian doesn't love the murder, thief, homosexual, adulterer , child molester, or prostitute. The problem is that culturally "homosexuality" is being made "ok". If it is ok then it is difficult for the Christian to witness, just as it is difficult to bring a murder or child molester in our home or associate with them in other ways. God calls us to be careful with whom we associate (I Cor. 5). It doesn't mean we are to not love them but just be careful. If a sinner is unrepentant and not willing to change be careful allowing evil into the flock. I two star rated this because it doesn't seem to have a section on dealing and confronting sin. Grace is not cheap. Recognizing that if a person is openly LGBT they are probably not being convicted by the spirit to change.

It is all well to love them as a person, but if they continue to sin, it there choice you cannot force them to change. As the Lord said when you accept Jesus as your savior but if you continue with your sin there after there will be no forgiveness for you sin. you can only plant a seed and then it is up to them to grow in the Lords ways or you will never come to ever lasting Life through Grace. You can only pray for them and Hope they will come to change.
