Don't ever wipe tears without gloves

It starts with me being a sucker for foreign language films with subtitles. 

Then, to get the light hearted out of the way before more serious comment below: Swedish people speaking in Swedish sound just like British comedians imitating Swedish people speaking Swedish!

More seriously, the title comes from a scene in which a nurse wipes a tear from the face of an AIDS victim, and receives that instruction from a colleague. In a different scene, the scripture is read: "God will wipe every tear from their eyes".

What a contrast between the human reaction and God's!

I now believe that God has never rejected the homosexual, it has only been a human interpretation of scriptures: an interpretation that derives from a natural human fear of difference combined with shallow and careless Bible study.
