I thought I already posted here... apparently not.
Let's start off the way most do, I'm male, straight and Catholic. However, I also completely support homosexual marriage, and I am greatly disturbed by the way that LGBT are, and have been, treated. In general, I don't care what you do, as long as you aren't hurting anybody.
I was not always this way. I am embarrassed to admit, when I was younger and more foolish, I thought that homosexuality was stupid and wrong. It took me far to long to realize I was stupid and wrong.
My Father is gay, which made me have a little hate in more recent years, although just specifically my Dad and his boyfriend. Of course, I expect that is only natural, to anyone in that situation, as I felt I shouldn't have existed. It has since been transmuted into anger at the mistreatment of the LGBT community, and hope that this greivous error in our society will one day be rectified.
Back to religion for a moment, I do not believe in a god (not God, a god) who would punish people for the way he made them. The most basic foundation of my beliefs is love and caring for all, I am simply unable to think that God would be otherwise.
And while I will probably never love everyone, I aspire to care or a least accept everyone, and that is, basically, what I think about everything, but specifically on LGBT.
Note: Do not read this as I do not care and am indifferent. I do care, wholeheartedly for LGBT rights.
EDIT: This topic's been dead for a long time, but I want something else to be known by any stalkers of this thread in the future. In my group of friends there is one, relatively out of place, friend who WAS once the classic bigoted Christian that society has came to know. He isn't anymore. Through the time he spent with us he's reevaluated his belief and decided that gay marriage was not a bad thing. When he told me this I cried tears of joy. It helps me to know that I've made one of my friends, already a good person, into an accepting one.
