6. as Nance knows, I had to shun one away who told me I wasn't supposed to be who I am
It's amazing what judgment can do when it's cloaked behind a title of "pastor" that brainwashes someone like my friend who used to support everyone's rights to simply - 'be'.
I used to tell him when he started to tell me I was wrong to be Gay, 'you know, in John 3:16 Jesus said, WHO-SO-EVER believes shall not perish, and he didn't say, unless you're not straight'.

I still stand up, too, for their right to have freedom of speech. I just don't care to hear their misguided hatred (that's why I don't watch Faux like some do here, I don't know how they can stomach it), and will continue to shun and shame those who are for ignoring the homeless, the handicapped, differing sexualities/beliefs than their own, and who support torture as if it's a virtuous action!

I hope they wake up before it's too late.

Thank God for those who learn to live together.
