(This post is actually a comment I wrote in response to some (3-4) recent anonymous comments that object to how I defend the rights of gay people. It is an answer to why I don't publish some comments, and some e-mails just don't get answers.)
I won't publish your comments that criticize gay people because of their sexual orientation. When you claim that "some of my friends are gay," but you "doubt their "walk with Jesus" " (the commenter's quotes), well, let me share this with you: If you hold the opinion that they are "openly practicing the homosexual lifestyle," and you don't approve, they don't really think of you as their friend, nor do they like you.
I won't publish the messages that say that gay people must be denied freedom to share their lives with another adult to whom they are emotionally and physically attracted. When you (anonymous commenters) say that someone is "practicing an open homosexual lifestyle" I know you are drawing lines of rejection, and that you assume that all people who are gay adhere to crazy and irresponsible sex - and that isn't true.
I won't publish comments that assume that molestation is the source of same-sex attraction. This is not based in fact.
I refuse to publish comments that call gay people sinners in the same way as murderers, pedophiles, rapists, or those in incestuous relationships.
There are other reasons that I reject comments, but tonight it's late, and this is my short list.
