Love First

I’m linking to Calah’s post because I need to hear it myself, not because I’m good at it:

Your love shouldn’t come with a litmus test. If you can’t imagine ever being friends with a gay person because you feel you would first have to explain in detail what you think about their lifestyle, you’re doing love wrong. If you are friends with a married couple who only have one kid and you think it’s your job to talk with them about contraception, you’re doing love wrong. If you scream “murderer!” at a lady going into an abortion clinic, you’re doing love wrong. And if you kick a pregnant teenager out of your school, your church, or your life, you’re doing love wrong.
