Again, lets look at family. I disagree with a lot of them. I dislike a lot of them. But I won't purposely not invite them to family events. I won't go out of my way to exclude them from the family. I won't try to get them fired from a job for the sole reason that I disagree with them.
Now I may not talk with them, may not interact with them, I may find it hard to love them if we interact, but I won't exclude them for that reason. I just won't talk politics at the Family reunion.
Love has plenty of room for deciding which groups should be allowed to marry and which groups shouldn't.
