I find it to be amazing how some will signal out one group or individuals.  When it comes to morality, God sees sin as sin and doesn’t say, “Well, at least it was heterosexual sin.”  Many a time I have seen fellow Christians display a very un-Christ like attitude when it comes to gays.  I have had some ask how I as a Christian can support the Democratic Party’s “pro-gay agenda” by which they mean how can I treat gays in the same way that Jesus would have.  I do not believe that Jesus would have condone the harassment, persecution or physical attacks upon gays.  God looks at mankind and sees His Children, all His children and I believe sheds a tear.  Nothing hurts the heart of God more that when we hate our brothers or sisters. 

My answer to these people is that I and the Democratic Party is not promoting or in favor of special rights for anyone, just the same human rights for all.  If there is a question of morality, that is between the individual of God.  We each are responsible for our own actions and attitudes before the Almighty.

To attack and beat up someone because they are gay is not only the act of a coward, but also demonstrates that lack of real understanding of what it means to be an American and a Christian.
A detective from Portland’s bias crimes unit is looking for suspects who police said assaulted two men after they walked together holding hands.
 
Sunday night around 8:30 police said the two men were walking from the Hawthorne Bridge down to the Eastbank Esplanade. They heard people talking and laughing behind them but weren’t sure it was directed at them.
 
The two had previously been holding hands during their walk, police said.
 
As they continued on, one of the men was pushed and punched from behind by several people. He was able to break away and call 9-1-1.
 
At the same time, the attackers punched and kicked his partner in the head, face, back and ribs.
The attackers finally ran away when they heard the first man calling police. Link




For those who protest that homosexuality is wrong, I submit to you so is attacking them.  We all have things in our lives which need improvement, things which are between us and God.  Do we want to be like some middle eastern countries where you can be attacked for no other reason than being different?  I think not, so lets fight against hate crimes.  Report them when you see them or hear someone talking about committing or having committed one.  Most cities have a hate crimes department.

As a Republican I don't see why anyone would question someone's faith based on their political party.  I have friends in both parties and I can say that their political alliance doesn't alter whether they are a good Christian, Jew or Muslim. 

When it comes to the hate crime of attacking someone because of their sexuality, I too have to ask why?  It makes no sense and I hope that the police catch the men behind this and put them in jail where they can enjoy the company of only men.  This news story makes me very angry, I don't agree with the gay life-style and it hurts to see loved ones in it, but I'll be damned if I'm going to set back and let someone attack them with words or physically.

I agree with Pet and Marty, which is rare, but in this case there isn't any excuse for violence.  I hope they catch and convict the attackers.

Where haters can be found on the Left, it is the Right that fosters hate and uses it to manipulate.  We saw this with all the signs at the Tea Parties and all the lies about this elected President.  I'm not trying to cast all on the right as haters, rather point out how hate can get out of control.  I doubt that any of you think that such attacks would be okay, but when hate is promoted, we have to realize that someone might just take it the next step and hurt someone.
