God loves everyone but God only approves of one lifestyle, the straight lifestyle.  God tells us to show a reasonable degree of respect to everyone no matter what their lifestyle is.

 

Showing a reasonable degree of respect to others includes letting others live in peace unless you must defend yourself/others against physical attack.

 

If it were possible that you would have to choose between defending yourself/others against physical attack and obeying the law, you would, of course, be free in the sight of God to defend yourself/others; however, if it were possible that you would have to make such a choice, we at The Life Foundations Nexus would make no actual recommendation or recommendations about whether to defend yourself/others.  This is because there are those who would use such a recommendation or recommendations to justify the use of unnecessary force.  Unnecessary force is avoidable or excessive force.  Avoidable force is the use of force when flight or the like is possible.  Excessive force is more force than necessary to stop an attacker.
