Since the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to strike down bans on same-sex marriage nationwide, my social media timelines have been inundated with comments and posts relating to this matter. I’ve seen some for, some against and some who couldn’t care less. I totally agree that each person is entitled to his or her opinion and I also agree that everyone has a right to share that opinion. What I don’t agree with is the fact that homosexuality has become the only
This frustrates me so much so that after reading a post shared by a FB friend in which he did the old…”I don’t agree, but I love Cousin Johnny anyway”, I decided that it was my turn to speak up, speak out and speak long and loud!
1. This is my personal opinion and this is my personal blog.
2. The fact that you may disagree with me is of no real relevance to me (as my opinion is of no relevance to you).
3. I welcome all comments and encourage each of you to feel free to post in the comments section
In the original post I addressed my FB friend by name but for purposes of this blog he shall be nameless:
Hi ——–, I love you as a fellow human, as my brother in blue and the fact that you regularly show and share your love of God is a welcome plus in my opinion – and another reason why I love you, my friend! Let me get to my point…I think there are millions of people who are missing/avoiding/ignoring one of the most important issues of all here.. Everyone – and I mean EVERYONE- walking God’s green earth deserves to be respected and have their rights to live, laugh and love respected! What gives anyone the right to say where the line is drawn? Is there any difference between two men being in a monogamous, loving, RESPECTFUL relationship and a man and woman who are married?… Let’s sweeten the pot…. that married man does all he can to get a woman, other than his wife, to accompany him to his hotel room and into his bed… Do you really think God is keeping score like that? Man with man -negative 0; man with woman +10— oops wait— she’s not his wife… better subtract a few points for that…
From what I’ve been taught, we are all sinners and, although we all have burdens to bear, none of us have the burden (or the right) to decide who goes where after death! Yes, each one should teach one BUT yes, each one should sweep around his and her own front door first, last and always!
P.S. You mentioned that you love your friends and family members who are gay and just because being gay is the lifestyle they “chose” you love them no less… People CHOOSE to lie, steal, CHEAT, commit adultery, covet thy neighbors wives or husbands…etc. and when caught there are various consequences.
Answer this: How many of these consequences, in any way, compare to being ridiculed, taunted, hated by millions, treated as an outcast, mocked, treated with contempt, scoffed at, despised, etc. on a daily basis – forever? Now answer this: which of your “friends or family members” (the ones who are gay) are you calling a stupid, dumb ass, mentally challenged, effing idiot- because surely that’s what they’d have to be to “choose” to endure all of that! I’ve met so many people in my life, heterosexual and homosexual, that I’ve forgotten who some of them are, but I’ve never met anyone who “chose” to be gay.
Love you my brother!
Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
