I was born into a Christian family. My grandfather was a pastor. He stepped up, when my mother’s husband (he is my biological father, however I do not recognize him as my father) abandoned the family. Because grandfather was a pastor, he raised us in the Legalism Value system. I was taught to respect the woman. I dated woman. We did share our affections with each other, such as holding hands, hugging, and kissing. We did not fondle one another or have premarital sex. I never cheated on them, either. I also never produced children out of wedlock.
As I have grown older, society had changed. I have adjusted my way of thinking] while preserving my moral values. I still hang on to my Legalism value system and lean to the situational ethics the most. I have a live and let live outlook. I view everyone as a human being and consider everyone individually. I do not judge anyone, even though I may not agree with them or their core values.
My grandfather taught me, “Love the Sinner and hate the sin.” I have gay and lesbian friends. I do not agree with or condone their lifestyle, however, I do not condemn or shun them because of their lifestyle. I still love and respect them as humans. Others I know, participate in Bondage, Swinging, and S & M. Call me old fashion, because their choices and lifestyles are not my cup of tea. However, it is conceptual between them. What they do in private is their business. I do not allow them to push their lifestyle onto me.
I can tolerate limited public displays of affection (PDA), such as holding hands, walking arm-in-arm, hugs, and occasional kissing. However, I cannot tolerate it when their PDA borderlines XXX adult behavior. There are situations that I do not and will never accept. They are domestic violence rape, incest, or bestiality.
