A lyric from a soul song from the 70's.
As far as your love goes, I am with you all the way. As it says in my profile statement at CJAT, "I believe that committed same sex relationships can be in keeping with all the laws and the prophets."
As far as your hate goes, you will find that Jesus in your heart will slowly coax you over to forgiving and tolerating those people. Especially when, inevitably, you find some decision of your own has fallen way short of the perfect, you will accept the limited condition of the human race.
A church is always imperfect because so many imperfect people go there. But if you hold a missing piece of the human puzzle, one that they don't know is missing, that may be an argument for being there. Someday, when you can stand the emotional stress.
There will be young people in there who hold the same piece as you hold and have no idea what to do with it. There will be older people who will have pseudo-reconciled it via hypocrisy and repeated, repented 'sin.' There will be older people who have just stashed it and left a big gap in their lives that they have to lie and lie about to cover up. You may be the only self-aware, forthright holder of the piece - as such, whether anyone knows it or not, you're a pillar of the community.
