In 1987, Bob Webb was a 51-year-old railroad engineer. He says he went to the taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show to "stand up for the word of God." At that time, he says, he didn't even know what AIDS was. "I don't have anything against him; I just don't want to be around him," he said at the time.
Today, Bob says while he still believes homosexuality is "an abomination," he is embarrassed by his old remarks and has changed his perspective. "I can't believe I even made that statement," he says. "I'm a Christian, and that wasn't the right thing to say. God says love everybody, and that's what I do. I apologize to these girls for that statement. The number one rule of God is love everybody."
