Treating your neighbor as you would want to be treated includes ALL men and women, regardless of faith, gender, race, beliefs, etc.

The world needs love and compassion, not cruelty and prejudice, and while the Bible is clear on its stance with homosexuality, that doesn't mean Christians (like myself) have the right to step on others.

I have gay and bi friends and they respect me just like I respect them. Many have asked why I'm so nice to them despite my faith. To be honest, I never really thought about it that much for the longest time. I just treat all people right and their sexual preference is, to me, an afterthought. Besides, It breaks my heart seeing homosexuals treated like dirt because I know that they want to be accepted no less than I would want to be.

It's hard to try to convince the world that the Bible teaches compassion and not hatred, but it takes effort to prove that preconception wrong. All I can do is live my own life as a positive example, and one way to start is to show the gays that they are loved and they are accepted, even by people who don't agree with their lifestyle.
