Recently I was at an event where I was talking in a group of people, one of whom was a lesbian. The conversation turned towards religion and someone in the group made an ignorant, thought not disrespectful, comment about the Catholic faith. After I clarified the Church's teaching one of the people I was talking with asked if I was a very religious person.
"Yes," I said, "I'm the kind of person who has five friends who are all nuns."
When the lesbian heard this she looked at me with a bit of disgust, eyebrows raised. She whipped out her cell phone and began texting someone while shooting glances my way. She did not look me in the eye for the next 1/2 hour and would address everyone else except me when she spoke. This behavior was quite different from the friendliness she had previously shown me.
Perhaps she's had bad run-ins with Christians in the past, but I was the one who was being judged. I had nothing against her until she was rude.
