  • I used to hate gay's.but i never said anything mean and bad.everybody should have tolerence and respect for everybody,who is different.

  • In the long run she will have to accept your homosexuality. She doesn't have to like it but she does have to find a way to make herself comfortable with it or this isn't going to work. You haven't said what the basis of her homophobia is. Is she just ignorant? If that's the case you're in unique position to help educate her. If it's religiously based you can point out that the same passages in Leviticus that condemn homosexuality also condemns eating shellfish and wearing garments made of two different cloths. If that still doesn't work maybe she can pull the whole 'hate the sin, love the sinner' Jedi mind trick though that could still be a problem if she thinks you should seek forgiveness for something you damn well shouldn't.

  • Thankyou very much for your help. It is religiously biased yeah, and I think it's illogical to be honest, not religion just the whole contradiction of stories in the bible. I belive in god I think, and I don't think he thinks I'm bad, so I'm comfortable with that. I like that line 'hate the sin, love the sinner' ,it's good .thanks a lot

  • If there is a god he must be far more just and merciful than human beings give him credit for. I refuse to believe he would condemn you simply for being who you are.
