they dont choose to be "hated","persecuted", etc.....it just "comes w/ the territory".
ok. what do you think about the civil rights marches of the 60s?
do you think they had an IDEA of what was going to happen to them? i do. but, they accepted these risks for the sake of what they believed in!
can you see how this correlates with the chioce of homosexuality?
they believe in it and are willing to stand up for it, and at the same time they are willing to take a fall for it.
Allah says in the 2nd surah, Al-Baqarah(The Cow) 2.25: But give glad tidings to those who believe and work righteousness, that their portion is Gardens, beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are fed with fruits therefrom, they say: "Why, this is what we were fed with before," for they are given things in similitude; and they have therein companions pure (and holy); and they abide therein (for ever).
