Ok, I think you are none of those things.

That is fine! However, would you hinder it if you could? And if you would, what would give you that right? Your Christian values?

I always want to make this distinction... are "Christian values" what the Church deems valuable, or what Christ deemed valuable? I see a sizable divide in those POV's. Christ, akin to the Buddha, was the live and let live type... the Church has time and again been less tolerant. Who is right? The Church, or the guy the Church is based on?

I am not gay. Neither are you. No amount of Justin Timberlake/Bieber begging for us is going to change that. So why do you even care what gay people do? Does it really affect you that much, as to be bothered by what two consenting adults choose to do?

I just don't understand the hostility, or the fear, that is expressed in this last statement. It comes off as homophobia, which is look-in-the-mirror time, IMO.
