We can love homosexuals, but not approve of gay marriage

To the Catholic Sentinel:

Some Christians confuse discrimination toward homosexuals with not supporting homosexual marriage. There is a big difference between the two. 
Christ taught that we are to love our neighbor, including homosexuals.

However, loving your neighbor does not mean you have to love everything he/she does.
 
Christ taught that marriage is between a man and a women. People may call Christians who support and follow this teaching anti-homosexual, not loving, etc. Christians were persecuted early on for following of Christ’s  teachings. Should we not accept minor persecution?

"loving your neighbor does not mean you have to love everything he/she does"
I can only imagine what "he/she" may be doing, unless I peek.

"Christ taught that marriage is between a man and a women."
Did Christ also tell us that we could do this,..., and shouldn't do that,...?

We cannot love homosexuals unless we love ourselves. If God can do it, we can try.
Paz y Bien, Rolando, OFS.
