It matters to me because I believe there are many of us who have lived under one set of understandings (I am 60) and others who are more progressive and are angry if I don’t understand their position or have doubts about it. It seems that if you don’t agree you are ‘hater’ or on the side of injustice. It’s a little too much.
However, I have gay family members and gay friends, children of my friends are gay or trans-gender and I treat them with the same love and respect as anyone else.
I may have doubts about the issue on a grander scale, but I feel like some will label me a ‘hater’ if I share or have doubts at all.
I don’t want to discuss it with over-passionate people.
