Christians love homosexuals

I’m going to talk about how Christians really feel towards legalizing gay marriage. Christianity often gets a bad reputation by a few extremists voicing their opinion as if they speak for all Christians. After all true followers of Christ are supposed to love everyone as God loves everyone. Think about how God would feel if one of his beloved children directly disobeyed him. Its like a spit to the face. And yet God still loves those who speak and act against him. God’s love and Jesus’ life are perfect examples for Christians to follow. But as everyone knows no one is perfect. We can only strive for perfection. There is a Christian cliche that says, “hate the sin, love the sinner”. So why does this all of a sudden not apply to things like gay marriage? I believe that gay marriage should be legalized. However I want it to fall under another term other than marriage because i believe marriage should be between a man and a woman. Extremists and Christ following Christians alike are afraid that once you allow two men or two women to join together in marriage what is stopping the next generation to continue to stretch the definition of marriage. For example polygamy could be legalized in the way of marrying multiple people at once. It could even come to people marrying animals. However i recognize that two men and two women do have real love for each other so therefore i hate the sin but love the sinner. Judging these couples would be wrong and a sin in itself. I do not have the authority to judge gay couples because i am just as much of a sinner as anyone else. Another problem that would arise with legalizing gay marriage and has been seen in the states and regions where gay marriage is legal is whether or not Pastors should be forced to marry gay couples if it is against their beliefs. I think this is wrong and a violation of keeping state and church separate.
