Welcome to the forums! I hope you find some interesting ideas and good friendships here. The Christian singer Ray Boltz has a song on his latest CD called "Who Would Jesus Love?" It's a very powerful song especially considering that Mr. Boltz came out publicly not too long ago. Your post just reminded me so much of that song.
"Beloved let us tolerate one another. For tolerance is of God and everyone that tolerates is born of God and knows God. He that tolerates not, knows not God for God is tolerance." 1 John 4:7,8
