I'm not exactly a part of the LGBT Community but I'm a big supporter of the community, as well I'm a nontraditional christian that supports gay marriage and adoption. Which tends to get me a lot of hate because most of the christian community is very judgmental. I just wanted to say that there's at least one christian supporter over here that believes the LGBT Community deserves the same rights as straight couples. Love is love and that's all that should matter.
