After introducing myself and the topic I wanted to discuss with him, I asked Jones about the perception that Christians and gays cannot get along, and whether that dynamic creates a conflict for the two communities.
“There’s not a conflict,” Jones said. “People are people and God tells us to love everybody. And so that’s what I do.”
“Now, do I condone what they’re doing? No, I don’t think it’s right. But, am I going to go out there and not talk to them? Am I going to go out there and be hateful and mean to them? I think that’s ignorant.
