David, Christian love can give respect, help, friendship, etc. without approving of a lifestyle which the Christian sees as unnatural. (No one, Christian or otherwise, can do it perfectly and I would hope that any continuing friendship with a gay person would grow less-imperfect). Withholding approval of a lifestyle, however, is not the same as denying a person of anything legitimate. A parent often withholds what a child wants but the parent is responsible for deciding what is correct to give a child. The child often interprets this as a lack of love when in fact it can be an expression of love. I would hope that as I learn better how to relate in love to a gay person, the gay person would also learn to understand my own unwillingness
