I thought your post might have a different meaning; I just cringe at the world 'lifestyle' or the idea of changing sexual orientation. Sorry to have jumped at you; I've got my pink boxing gloves on today and they're itching to throw down

As far as judging goes, people judge every day. We all make judgement calls throughout the day in order to make decisions about a variety of things we encounter. What God is talking about here is not making the kind of judgement about whether a person is going to heaven or hell. There is a huge distinction here. Besides, I don't see anyone making judgements here but simply expressing opinions and feelings regarding this matter.
Jesus didn't "condone" a lot of things that you do every single day. Hey, Jesus didn't condone using the internet -- omg you're a SINNER for using the internet! See where I'm going with this? LACK of your messiah condoning things doesn't mean they are evil or sinful or sending you to hell.

If all the "good Christian" students would stop harassing them and beating them up no gay friendly schools would be needed!

We didn't write the Bible, we're just the messengers. If you don't believe in what it says, then that's your perogative. However, I find it interesting that the same folks who accuse Christians of hateful speech use it themselves without reservation.

Show me exactly where I used hateful speech.

I'm not, though. I'm using your own argument to refute your very own implications that homosexuality is a sin. I try my best to accept everyone for who they are, as long as they aren't hurting anyone else. In that, I'm apparently far more christian-like than many christians I've seen and heard. I find that quite humorous, to be honest.

I didn't necessarily direct this comment toward you personally (sorry if you read it that way), but I have received a large number of hateful comments after having merely expressed what the Bible says about this issue here in in other forums.

I find it ironic too.

BTW, they are not MY implications.....it is what is written in the Bible.

I'm sure the rules of conduct will be same as any other school. I don't think the school will be advocating sexual acts on campus. Every child in this country has the right to an education without being bullied or the victim of a hate crime.

If people stopped hurting gays/transgendered and calling them sinners we could live as one. Do you think gays are commiting a sin by going to school?

I say good for the gays. They are sick of hiding and sick of being hurt and judged by people who don't belong in their business. If anything you should be asking yourself, "how can we be so cruel to other human beings and drive them away?" What would Jesus say about that?

Also note the school will be open to anyone who wishes to attend. I can only admire their efforts and wish them the best.
