As a Christian, I don't hate people who live a gay lifestyle. I am perfectly capable of distinguishing between behavior and attitudes I don't like and the value of a person which is infinite. It is very easy and reactionist to go straight for 'they hate my identify' ploy which avoids the issue that I have the right to not like homosexual behaviour. I don't like it. Just as you don't like a variety of behaviours that you think are wrong. Why is it so terrible to have an opinion you don't like? You can scream 'hater' and 'homophobe' but I am not. And bringing the 'law' in is a cheap shot. Homosexuality used to be a crime by the 'law' so elevating the law above the scriptures is an act of convenience, not a true conviction. Look, us Christians often make an appalling show of representing Christ, really we do. But take a look at Christ Himself and you'll see the true light of someone worthy of following.
If you want to see the dark ages, look at the world without Christ.
