I suppose this could be considered hijacking, just jumping in and throwing my thoughts around, but I just need to get a few things out.
The first thing I would like to say is that I'm 15 years old, and a Christian. And no, I'm not religious; I'm a faithful servant of Christ who devoted my life to Him and vowed to serve Him and live my life to glorify Him. I go by no rules, no regulations, except for living the way God wants me to. I think it's quite sad how so many people think Christians are "homosexual haters" who would pay anything to see every homosexual be condemned to hell. I'm not one of these people. In fact, I know a lot of Christians who aren't.
The thing is, God doesn't hate homosexuals. He loves them. He loves them as much as He loves me, as much as He loves you, as much as He loves every murderer or thief or prostitute. He even loves the people who despise Him. Because God is love. The thing that many people don't understand is that God hates the sin that homosexuals commit, not the homosexuals themselves. He loves murderers, but he hates the crime they've done.
I personally do not support gay marriage, but that won't stop me from respecting the opinions of other people who do. I can't start a fight just because I think gay marriage is wrong and I certainly wouldn't ever try to change anyone's opinion. And as a Christian, I'm going to acknowledge my downfalls. So many people think that Christians are high-and-mighty arrogant snobs who take a look at you and automatically assume you're a huge sinner. The truth is, I'm a huge sinner too. I sin just as much as everyone else in the world, just in different ways than others. Because not everyone is the same.
I just saw the posts on here about God and "religion" and I just wanted you all to see how I see things. And it doesn't matter if you support gay marriage, it doesn't matter if you had a kid when you were 16, it doesn't matter if you spent half your life in jail. God loves and forgives. God is love.
