    I feel your struggle, writer, but think about what you're asking: in order that tolerance be expanded, you would have people become intolerant of the faith of others. For the secular world, it is an impasse, for to obstruct either would hurt the cause of universal empathy that is tolerance deeply. I would pray that the LGBT community consider that fact, and try to confer with the leaders of true faith, so that the actual situation can be declared: Christians love all and desire all for salvation, but homosexuality is a sin. We hate the sin, not the sinner. If this could be understood at large, I think that, if both parties truly desired equal and fair treatment, a solution is therein found. It is intolerant of anyone to demand that certain faiths remove parts of their text, and it is intolerant (and completely unacceptable/forbidden) for a Christian to treat anyone with hate or prejudice. True believers would embrace this: the LBGT community understanding the value of holy texts, and that no Christian would ever attack in a malicious way another. Only share the gospel. This is what should be advocated.
