In defense of the gays

“Controversial status alert: Even though I didn’t like Kirk Cameron much at first, the guy is respectable. If you can’t at least acknowledge that, you’re just choosing ignorance. Yes, he made anti-homosexual statements, and I feel like that’s where most of the opposition comes from, so here’s my point… He was speaking of homosexuality itself, not homosexual people. The question from Piers Morgan was loaded and Kirk didn’t even get to finish what he was saying… Kirk spoke from his beliefs, and if we are Christians, we SHOULD support that. Does that mean hating homosexuals? No. Does that mean if you struggle with homosexuality you’re automatically going to Hell? NO. Everyone has their own cross to bear. But agreeing with something that the Bible clearly addresses just because that’s what the WORLD wants and because the WORLD will condemn us for believing the opposite shouldn’t fly. Ever. And Kirk did exactly that. He spoke from his beliefs… That we all SHOULD share…”
So I’ve bolded, underlined, and italicized the important part of this facebook status.
You can’t separate the manifestation of homosexuality from the homosexual person.  A person is homosexual because they are the manifestation of homosexuality. The only way the hate the sin, love sinner argument work is if it’s fixable and worth fixing.  You can’t fix something that isn’t broken.  An accident of birth made me straight and him gay, why should an accident of birth dictate how I’m treated by one of the oldest religions in the world.
