It's definitely a conversation I'd rather have over coffee than at Pride. Plus a relationship/friendship earns you the right to speak into someone's life, so I hope that would happen.
It's difficult playing the 'what-if' game. "what if I said this, what if he said that..." I hope in the moment that I would answer with grace and truth; that I would represent God well; that I would embody love.
To those who struggle with not watering down what you believe: I do appreciate that. I don't know where I stand. However, do you really think (most) gay people don't know where (most) Christians stand theologically? It's the other half of the equation that's missing. I think we've got the "hate the sin" part down pat.
