Who says I can’t love a homosexual while disagreeing with their sexual behavior?
A recent article in the Star Tribune quoted David McCaffrey, a board member of the Catholic Pastoral Committee on Sexual Minorities as saying, “This is ‘yet another volley of dehumanizing spiritual violence directed at GLBT persons and their families under Archbishop Nienstedt's reign of homophobic hatred.’"
At best, McCaffrey’s comment is ideological nonsense. For instance, I have friends that have sexually cheated on their now ex-wives – yet I still love them. I know young adults that have had sex outside of marriage – yet I still love them.
No, name-calling and accusations of “hate” and “homophobia” are deliberate attempts to bully and silence those with opposing views.
The next time you are called a "hater" etc., ask, “Are you telling me I can’t love someone just because I disagree their sexual behavior?”
Let’s stick with the basics, we oppose homosexual marriage, anti-bullying and sex education curricula that affirms homosexual behavior because the medical evidence proves it is a killer.
