James Hartline is your neighbor. James Hartline has helped many, many other citizens in the gay community even though some in that community do not like the fact that James has successfully shut down a multitude of pornography businesses and gay bathhouses where thousands of young men were infected with AIDS and then died before they reached the age of 40. Those who died never got to see where their dreams and talents would have taken them because of the drugs they purchased in the bathhouses and the unsafe sex that consumed them in those same bathhouses while they were high on the drugs they obtained there. At least James has done something to end the scourge of bathhouse-induced self-destruction that murdered so many, many many lives. James has also prayed for many of those in the gay community who have not treated him kindly. James even ran to become a city council member representing District 3 which includes a large swath of the gay community.
What kind of society are we becoming when people become so hatefully calloused and hardened towards those they disagree with that they will actually oppress certain community members to prevent them from being a candidate for public office? Or threaten others so they don't feel safe when walking down the street in a community that demands legal protection from hate crimes and discrimination only to turn around and engage in the same hate crimes and discrimination that provoked their own, earlier demands for legal protections from hate crimes and discrimination.
Sure, James can sometimes be a braggard over his successes in shutting down porn stores and helping to prevent the Mt. Soledad Cross from being torn down and in helping to save young, underage girls from prostitution on El Cajon Boulevard. Yes, James can be little overly confident when patting himself on the back for winning a cultural battle here and there, but who hasn't? When you come from a life of being physically and sexually abused for the first fourteen years of your life and then completely abandoned to a state orphanage while your parents moved away, followed by a seemingly hopeless existence of living by yourself in a state of complete poverty as a 17 year-old homeless kid with no self-esteem, and no self-worth while your abusive parents went on to become multi-millionaire construction company owners - well, you learn in this life that sometimes you may be the only one in your life who is cheering for you. Sometimes you have to pat yourself on the back for a job well done because the voices of opposition who are devoted to seeing you fail are the only other voices beside your own that can be heard as you cross the finish line of your winning effort, whether it be a successful campaign to shut down a destructive gay bathhouse or getting soda can recycling bins placed in a fastfood restaurant chain that previously did not have them or the completion of the Rock and Roll Half-Marathon at age 55 less than six months after enduring an actual near-death experience caused by a ruptured gall bladder.
In the last twenty years as a well known ex-gay Christian activist there is not a single person inside of San Diego's gay community who can claim they have ever witnessed James Hartline using profanity or engaging in disrepectful behavior or bullying towards anyone. They cannot name a single instance where he threatened anyone with violence or ever engaged in hateful, disrespectful hostility towards anyone. Political or religious opposing viewpoints or debates are not hate. Rather they are simply the fabric by which constitutionally protected ideals and thoughts confront other ideals and thoughts for the working out of new ideals and thoughts and conclusions without straining irreprably the community we all live in.
Whether you realize it or acknowledge it, James is your neighbor, he is your friend, he is what he is, a human being and a citizen in your community. In the many decades that James has lived out his Christian faith as an ex-gay Christian resident in San Diego's gay community, he has received many death threats because of his faith and politics and he has been the recepient of many hostile and hateful, threatening telephone messages and emails. He has been the target of discrimination where some HIV services in the gay community refused to provide him with the same HIV social services that others receive simply because certain employees of those agencies despise his public testimony as a former homosexual Christian. Those gay employees told James he was not welcome on their property even though the funding for their agencies comes from U.S. taxpayers. It you find this kind of venemous discrimination against a Christian to be acceptable than there is very little hope for America's future and the American way of life.
