    Not to sound like an arse, but why should they? The straight, religious culture is shoved in their face in most books, magazines, movies, tv and laws. Don't tell me it isn't when there are states that are still trying to limit gay marriage, religious leaders get on tv and call the LGBT community a parasite on mankind, etc. Maybe if the far right side would quite trying to shove them back in the closet they wouldn't have to be so loud about who they are. Just my opinion.

    As a straight guy I have no problem with all types of love shown on tv and movies. I also have no problems with laws protecting LGBT from discrimination with a few exceptions made for the military. The only real difference between you and I is I have no religious doctrine telling me I should be against homosexual/transexual people (not that the bible says to be against them, but to not follow their ways, though many "religious" people take that differently).

    The Bible is crystal clear on the subject.

    Yes, but its also crystal clear on not judging others, to love others, and the freedom of choice. It seems mainstream Christianity forgets that part. One of the main reasons I turned away from church was the hypocrisy I saw on a daily basis. What it would boil down to is "love thy neighbor, but only if they are Christian, straight, not in a mixed race relationship (this was early 90's), and support the suppression of anyone who wasn't". Now days of course mixed race relationships are pretty generally accepted, but still.

    I do not disagree with you, I have a live and let live policy. And yes , do not shove your lifestyle, whatever it may be, down my throat!! I don't care, and do not want to hear about it, as I am busy trying to enjoy my life!. With one exception ... I am a 2A guy and I will preach to you about why you should be as well, what ever side of the bat you swing from LOL! Red,yellow, black, white or rainbow get a gun or 20, get proficient with it/them and protect you and yours whomever they be!!

    I'll mention this again, but Christians must judge others, otherwise they won't know with whom they should not associate. It is how they judge that is important. Love the sinner, but hate the sin.
