I got a very angry email from a new fellow hubber who misunderstood a comment I made in the forums about Christianity and homosexuality. Bascially they were very upset with me because they interpreted my comment as bigotted and hateful against homosexuals.
I really apologize for any vagueness I may have conveyed about where I stand on this issue. I wrote a fast paced response that wasn't all that well-worded and left room for belief that I am homophobic.
I am NOT. I have loved ones who are gay. I have good friends who are lesbian, and I know the incredible grief and suffering of a couple of transgendered friends who are going through excruciating changes in their lives about relationships as well as sex changes.
One biologically male friend is going through a sex change. He loves his wife and children very much, but is completely identified as a woman, himself. Yet, his wife doesn't want to be married to a woman. These are complicated and very delicate matters, and cannot be brushed aside as simply a "personal choice."
I just wanted to make clear that I am not homophobic. Perhaps we should be willing to wear each other's shoes before we make any knee-jerk judgments.
That's all I have to say on the matter.
Regardless of what was said, it really bothers me that someone would abuse the email system to argue with what is said on the forum.
