I appreciate Mr. Engardio’s ability to get his point across about toleration, without stepping on toes. He sounds like a gentle and kind man and one who loves his mother a great deal. Mr Engardio brought out the fact that he was Gay and that this was not a course condoned by those who believe in God’s word the Bible. I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and as such I as well as my 6 1/2 million brothers and sisters, would do nothing to cause hard to gay people. As it is also with fornicators, Idolators, etc. I might not condone his life style, but still it’s none of my business. I would hope that all of us would treat each other in a loving and kind way. I would also hope that everyone could come to know the loving God Jehovah and how precious each of you are to him.
