I’m very tolerant of gay people. What does that have to do with marriage?
My thoughts exactly. I worked in the arts for 40+ years. If you weren't tolerant of gay people, you couldn't get through the next 10 minutes. However, it is because of my tolerance and friendship that I learned a great deal more than I ever really wanted to about gay behaviors and the childhood traumas of most of the gays I knew; many GLBT's are very emotional and will tell you anything if you pay attention.
It was though accepting the friendship and tolerating with compassion the appalling disclosures of so many "acting homosexuals" of both sexes, as well as watching the AIDS epidemic at close range, that I drew my inescapable conclusion that GLBT behaviors needs help and healing. These distortions should not be established as honorable cultural institutions.
