I try really hard to understand opposing views to my own. I draw the limits at extremism and views that hurt innocent people.
If you think my simply believing that homosexuality is a sin and that I don’t agree with the lifestyle is “extremism”, then I don’t think you honestly know what extremism actually is. And I’m not saying that with any sarcasm, I’m just being very honest. Extremism with regards to homosexuality is hating people purely for being homosexual, wishing harm on homosexuals, and/or actually taking action to harm homosexuals. Which is what you see happening in the Middle Eastern countries under Islamic rule where it is legal to publicly mutilate, hang, and throw homosexuals off buildings. That is extremism. That involves the hurting and torment of innocent people.
It is not extremism to merely say you disagree with homosexuality - and mind you, that statement is being said purely out of care for others. And I am not trying to force anyone to do anything - the decision is ultimately up to the individual as to whether they decide to embrace sin or follow Christ. I can’t force someone to accept Christ, nor would I want to. That has to come naturally from their own heart.
This mentality that disagreement with homosexuality automatically equates to hatred is very frustrating. Yes, there are some people who disagree with homosexuality with hatred as their motivator. But if someone is truly a follower of Christ, I can assure you that a person stating that they don’t support homosexuality isn’t coming from a place of hatred and they’re not getting any personal satisfaction out of saying it.
