very deep, visceral level, why some people hate Christians. I really do. Yet my understanding it, does not change the fact of the matter that, as far as I am concerned, hating them is wrong.
If we hate them, all it does is make their condemnation of us justified.

You mean we need to go back to gays hiding in the closets, too afraid to be who they are. Sorry - that's not going to happen.
Absolutely NOT, and nowhere in my post did I suggest that. Shame on you.
It is more obvious than ever that Christians are under attack.
As long as Christians attempt to legislate there beliefs and attempt to limit the rights of others, I will not support these protections for them. This is not just towards Christians but all faiths. If you wish to limit freedoms and liberty and the pursuit of happiness you don't deserve these rights either.

As a Christian, it is difficult to hear this attack against my faith from someone who has zero understanding of anything he cited - no less from someone that has his OWN moral code to enforce on society. He speaks of slavery, yet has no understanding that God makes it perfectly clearly that the entire world is already in slavery.
"Tolerance" is the buzz word that forces people into submission. I applaud those young people for swimming upstream in a society fast being forced to accept any and all personal behaviour as 'normal and healthy' because of TOLERANCE.
Tolerance isn't love, tolerance is a blinding tool to the destruction of civilisation.
Gay advocates for years denied the warnings that it's acceptance wouldn't lead to other forms of sexual acts being recognised as 'normal' - and right on cue, psychologists have been writing journal articles suggesting that pedophilia should be reclassed from a mental illness to a sexual practice.
People can't see the slow destruction of our morals - the tendency of sin is downward to greater degradation and misery, it's a spiral and gains momentum as it descends. It's one of the most important lessons in this Bible, and that the speaker will never acknowledge it because he's so wrapped up in justifying a sexual practice as a "lifestyle" that he berates children for not choosing IT over the Bible. That is the crux of his form of bullying - coercion based on the human inclination to not be seen as 'different'. Evil loves company as they say. He has no concept of the meaning of Biblical slavery, for it he did, he'd not be up at that podium.

But here's the thing - look at the context - the event was about "TOLERANCE" and anti-bullying, it was not about Homosexual rights. If it was the latter, he'd be more in his rights to rant away (even if I don't agree with that message). Its the fact that he is trying to speak on tolerance while simultaneously being intolerant that is the most galling.
