"For some of you here this evening, your frustrations go way beyond a state senate candidate. Some of you are beyond frustrated with God right now. Some of you refuse to believe in him altogether. You've asked the question or perhaps given up asking a long time ago, 'Why? Why would God make me who I am and then tell me that's wrong?' May I put a question before you tonight? What if that's exactly what God did? What if that's exactly what God had to do to fully demonstrate who he is?"

-- Virginia Republican state senate candidate Tim McGhee at the Arlington Gay & Lesbian Alliance candidate forum. McGhee used that as a springboard to launch into a sermon about homosexuality complete with Bible verses. McGhee's opponent, Adam Ebbin, is a gay man.

If Tim McGhee can pretend that his remarks were an example of Christian love, then I can pretend that I am the Pope and make certain he knows that it is not my ring I want him to kiss.

God made me just fine the way I am. I am fine with it. I don't know about McGhee or others. But being gay is alright by me as is being any other orientation in the rainbow!
He can just stop telling us we stopped believing in God or whomever. He is talking out of his arse! I know hundreds of LGBT who love God and love themselves. And we know we were made correctly and have only frustrations against those who "think" they know the mind of God.
