I understand what you're trying to express, OP.
The thing about it is, real Christians, who understand the ultimate, bottom line message of love and tolerance within their belief, do not throw their
voice out there because they choose not to engage in worldly issues. They are at peace with themselves and the condition of the world. They understand
that everything that is, must come to be. They do not judge. They do not fear.
Now, the so called "Christians" that draw so much attention to themselves by expressing their distaste (and sometimes downright hate) for
homosexuals are insecure in their own beliefs. They fear.
And these "Christians", loud and arrogant, are the naturally-appointed
representatives of Christianity. And they wonder why they're given such a bad name.. Sure they may do some good within their communities, and they
may be generally good people, but, once again, They fear.
I am not a Christian per se, but I do not oppose Christianity because I have had the pleasure of knowing some decent, respectful Christians who are
secure in their beliefs. They are few and far between, and chances are, you haven't met one.
This concept applies to Atheism as well, but on a lesser degree as there are no specific rules or guidelines that Atheists follow. There are those
Atheists that can respectfully disagree with the beliefs of others, and there are those pompous, A-holes who have what seems to be a superiority
I don't wanna rant, so I'll cut out with this last thought.
Christians, do not reference scientific theories, unless you fully understand what a theory is/means within the scientific community.
Atheists, do not quote scripture unless you have read and understand the context of a particular passage. (Yes, scripture is open to interpretation,
but being familiar with the text surrounding a passage helps)

is a hypocrite.
