Most of us have at least one gay friend we’ve known for a good amount of time. Most of us also keep up with the latest controversial political topics. If the Republicans aren’t arguing about abortions then they’re most likely bashing gay marriage.
Everyone is of course, entitled to his or her own opinions. If you just don’t like it, fine. Maybe you think somewhere in the bible it states a man shall not lay with another man and vice versa. Whatever your beliefs might be, do you believe every man is created equal?
If one were to argue it isn’t right because the bible says it isn’t, they aren’t thinking about the time period when the bible was written. First, it was written by people, normal every day people. If I as a person believe in something, why would I not put the way I feel into whatever it is I’m writing (Oh hey, look at this article!)? Second, the bible has many, time rendering rules.
For example, if someone does not observe the Sabbath day (Sunday) they should be put to death. And don’t think about having sex for pleasure and not with the intentions of procreation (can’t spill the seed), that’s also a sin. Never can you have sex on your period, that’s also punishable (yes, I know it’s disgusting, but its in there.)
I’m not for or against the bible. I’m for all humans having the same rights. We are all created equal, never mind our color, sexual orientation, height, weight, and religion. People, who just like to sit around and criticize/bash others for the lives they lead, are not very good Christians.
We are all equal and if God loves us all, he loves the gay people too. The God that I believe in is accepting and loving of everyone, not just who some “Christians” say he loves. We can’t make up our own rules as we go along regarding what God likes and doesn’t like. Lets all just live in harmony and love each other. Is that so hard to do?
If you get a chance, check out the documentary “For the Bible Tells Me So” on Netflix. It’s a very eye-opening documentary.
