Love the person but hate the sin

I have felt lately like Christians have been really bullied because of our beliefs. Everyone in the gay community is telling people to stand up for what they believe in and make your voice heard, but when we say anything about what we believe in, its a hate crime and we are being hypocrites. Strange thing is I am standing up for what I believe in. The bible says love the person but hate the sin. Jesus tells us to love people (Matthew 22) and Paul writes that we must hate what is evil (Romans 12). All of scripture screams this very point over and over again. If you want equal rights for everyone then you need to stop telling me I can’t stand up for what I believe in because it’s not the same thing you believe in.
