Well I hope that my opinion is not opening something thats been sitting awhile with no response's, but my belief is that we should feel no anger toawrds those that would harm us for being diffrent. No its not okay to take a beating from a someone who is a homophobe there are instances where you need to fight back. But God told us that we need to love not hate, forgive not hold grudges, we will destroy ourselves with our own hate. Now im a really firery person, i was raised where we shoot first ask qeustions later, and I even adapted that for along time. But sence I have found God more I have learned that letting it go and forgiving makes you sleep alot better at night, then planning unecassary revenge that will only accomplish more ridicule or worse groups of people trying to hurt you.
The world is full of people ready to put you down if your even alittle bit diffrent from they view as normal. An this goes for black, white, latinos, gays, transexuals. My above statement is not just for Gay but everyone who has to face the stupidity of other humans who live in a world where they believe everyone was not created equal and should not have equal oppertunity.
