I've been thinking about this for a while and have attempted to start a thread asking for help, but have backed out of it several times. I know our Father hates the sin, but loves the sinner, I know what the scriptures say, have them all underlined, bolded and committed to my heart. This is what I need to know and have decided to ask you all for your thoughts.
Homosexuality is so blatantly in your face these days and it's considered to be "chic" or "in" to be gay. If you speak out against it and go to the scriptures to make your point, you are called a bigot and hater. Everywhere you go you are surrounded by homosexuals and you can't avoid having to interact with them in your daily life. My hairdresser is gay, at the hospital/Dr.s office, etc.
Once my husband and I were in a popular home decor store and I was buying items to put on the Christmas tree. There were several gay couples (men) shopping too. I bumped my husband, putting some glittered pieces in my cart, and got glitter all over his shirt. He was mortified and grumbled at me under his breath while frantically trying to brush the glitter off his shirt. He stuck to me like a shadow and was rushing me to get out of the store. This is one of those times I laughed so hard tears ran down my legs!
Supporting Chic-Fil-A day on her facebook page my daughter was flamed by her supervisor for "judging others" and claims to be a Christian while supporting gay marriage and has gay friends coming up for a visit and wants her to meet them.
I've only been to this hairdresser twice but am thinking of changing salons. He doesn't discuss his private life and doesn't flaunt his gaydom, but there is no denying his lifestyle. How do you all handle everyday situations and are we to avoid interacting with gays? I guess the fact that I don't feel comfortable going there is my answer, but there are other areas in life you can't avoid.

Tears ran down your *legs*? Where was your face at that point?!

Your hairdresser is gay at the hospital?
P.S. If it's running down your legs... uh, it's not tears.

It's not the gays I'm concerned about. Last week I heard two guys speak admiringly of vegetarianism.

I would worry less about the 'gehy' and more about craft herpes.
It is a strange disease that occurs with the spread of glitter over a subject. subject is prone to spread "Craft herpes" all over the area. you can catch that.

That's because you're a bigoted hater. Stop using your god as an excuse to be an asshole.

"This is one of those times I laughed so hard tears ran down my legs!"
This is easily one of the more creepy statements I have seen in a while. The implications are just so varied and each is more disturbing than the other.

"He doesn't discuss his private life and doesn't flaunt his gaydom, but there is no denying his lifestyle."
Well, here's a thought: Since he doesn't discuss his private life or flaunt his sexuality (which makes me wonder how there is 'no denying his lifestyle'), why don't you just stop thinking about it and MIND YOUR OWN FUCKING BUSINESS.

That supervisor who "claims to be Christian" is actually the one who has the right idea. You might want to look it up.

I'm calling poe on this one. It's too funny and ironic to be on RR.

You can be against the gay lifestyle without being a bigot or a hater. It is simple, don't be gay. You can't, however, avoid gay people all the time. It is fairly easy and possible to interact with gay people, even if your beliefs are against homosexual activities, just think of them as people instead of as gay people. I'm sure you don't like all people sexualizing you constantly, do them the same respect. And I highly doubt a little glitter will make your husband look gay, unless you're Michele Bachmann...
On another note, while I'm sure this women is fundy, I'm not sure how fundy this quote is. Also, she seems to be asking for help.

When you have REAL problems, maybe you can ask for help. They exist, is that their crime?

If God is SO against homosexuality, than it's obvious that there is a Female among the Godhead...otherwise who would the men have a marriage-like relationship to?
I remain firm in my belief that there is a Mother as well as a Father...after all, you can't have one without the other!
