It’s frustrating when I talk with fellow Christians who think that being gay is a sin and then proceed to copy and paste about 6 or so verses from the Bible.
Do you think I’ve never cracked open a Bible before? Do you know that I have a BA from a conservative Evangelical college? Do you think that I haven’t wrestled through these same verses for years…the very ones that you are cutting and pasting, out of context?
Have you ever tried to listen and understand my view…or are you just formulating the next argument in your mind…all so you don’t have to truly get to know and respect me?
