Black and white doesn’t mean narrow-minded.

In my view, truth is absolute. I know that’s not popular, but I’d argue that if science is absolute, what makes us think that moral law would somehow not be? That said, I also believe that this absolute truth is multi-faceted, like a diamond. That diamond is solid, but how light is affected when passing through it depends entirely on the interaction of these various facets.

But I digress. I’m getting a little tired of being painted as narrow-minded because of my beliefs. At the risk of stepping on some toes here, no, I don’t support homosexuality. At the same time, I don’t HATE anybody. Some of my best friends on my college campus are gay, and you know what? They’re pretty cool people. If they ask me for my opinion, I’ll give it respectfully and clearly, and listen to theirs. If they want a civilized debate, I’m game. If they don’t, I’m going to respect their right to differing beliefs, and I’m not going to force mine down their throats.
