Thanks in advance for your input! I can't wait to see what you all say! :)

Side B: My lifestyle choice may not fit with your belief system, but that is no reason to publicly denounce my way of life simply because you do not agree with it. Those are gross generalizations, of course, but I feel that both statements get to the root of the tension here. Like I said, I get both view points, but I find mysel
