You are absolutely right. It isn't intolerant to call for tolerance. During slavery, white people often used the Bible to justify enslavement and white supremacy. When people do this to disrespect people in the LGBT communiity, it's the same type of horrible rhetoric. This type of hatred and bigotry makes it more difficult for people like you and me. These children need support systems, instead of being marginalized because of sexual preference. Thanks for your bravery to write these important issues.
