Just my opinion; if this was only a video about saving lives by eliminating gay suicides, I would support the video and not post. However, there were a lot of dynamics in this video: it was not just 1 simple message.
Showing "Daddy and Daddy" kissing child and another clip of "Daddy and Daddy" holding family along with a slue of 'your fine the way you are comments' warranted me to post.
I indicated in previous blogs that Socialists do not have the corner on compassion. I have argued strongly that you can believe in the free market and act compassionately to others. Similarly, the people who think homosexuality is not sin or immoral also do not have the corner on loving people and showing compassion.
My belief in a certain set of morals which does not approve of such conduct does not in anyway shape or form disqualify me from loving and showing compassion to homosexuals. Love is not based on agreement. I can love homosexuals and believe their sexual conduct is immoral. It's no different then my wife loving me even if I am disrespectful to her. She can disagree with my conduct, but still love me.
And, her disagreement does not constitute her not loving me any more then me disagreeing with homosexual activity does not constitute any lack of love.
I think Conservatives need to clearly articulate their idea's and positions. I look forward to continually learning how I can better love others.
