Re: Christianity is not the same thing as Catholicism or Islam
No. The problem is not your distaste for gay marriage, which is an extension of your hate for gays. The problem is you act on that hate by refusing public service to those who have done you no harm and use that self-righteous attitude to do harm to others. How many hate crimes against gays in this country are committed by christians? I've never heard of one that wasn't. All of them? Probably.
I need His Spirit to counter my natural tendencies towards greed, pride, and selfishness.
If that’s what it takes to keep society free of your all too human weaknesses then have at it. Most of the rest of us will just be normal human beings trying to get by without hurting others while sharing some good times along the way.
