As far as gays and lesbians, they need to be shown the love of conservatives too.

There was a masculine male member of my community who attended our church for a while who was obviously a cross dresser. He grew his hair long, bleached it platinum blonde, wore hose and heels and women's clothing and make-up like it was nothing. His name was Vicky. I sat with him many Sundays. I mean, can you imagine what it must have been like for him to try to make his way in the world looking like that--even though it was his choice?

I heard that the pastor told him, "Look, we believe there are roles for men and women to play that include dressing the part, but we love you even though we don't agree with your manner of presenting yourself to the world." I think this was the right stand to take.
