God says love everbody the way I love you. The key word is everybody. He did NOT say love ONLY straight,white and non-transgender. He said love EVERYBODY and everybody includes Gay, Bisexual, Blacks and whites, transgender , etc. So please do not judge you don't know everybody's story. Please love everybody the way God loves you.
