"Hate The Sin, Love The Sinner"
As a man who grew up with an evangelical military father, who struggled with his faith and with the love for a gay son, most of our *debates* would end with him saying this phrase to me.
I always HATED this statement and after one such debate, years later, after uttering this statement one time to many, I was just pissed enough to confront him with how it made me feel.
I simply stated:
"But you Christians do no such thing, you hate homosexuals and just use that crappy sentence to cover up your hatred, just to make yourselves feel better about it.
It's belittling, berating and complete nonsensical bullshit and if you ever say it to me again, I can assure you, it will be the last time we speak."
My father had the good sense to apologize, I just wish they all could see how they use their religion to justify the evil that they do, in Gods name.
