Gay Activist Raising $150,000 for Conservative Christians

IMG_1884According to media reports such the one below, a gay rights activist is raising $150,000 to pay the fine of a Christian couple who were prosecuted for taking a stand against same-sex marriage. The activist says he is doing this as an act of love.

Unusual huh.

Some gay activists have objected (see photo, right).

And some Christians have sneered in response, commenting that the activist is unrepentant over homosexuality and is still going to hell. But I wonder if the case is as clear as they imply. Matthew 22:34-40 states;

Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested Jesus with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

I dont think the donating gay activist can be sure of his salvation. But who is more closely following that second commandment? The gay activist, or the person sneering at him even in the midst of his extraordinary generosity?

Update: Two months later, around 300 donors had contributed around $4,000, according to this update.
