Irritated...
June 01, 2012 @ 07:22:34 pm
What happened to equality among man kind? Shouldn't God love everyone?

Why must the people I love be bashed because they love the same gender? Yes, I am talking about gays/lesbians/bisexuals. I love many people and consider many to be my family who fall in those categories. What I am having issues understanding is why so many pastors have lately come out and have talked of treating homosexuals the same way they were treated by the Nazi's. Aren't pastors suppose to spread LOVE not HATE?!?! These pastors and their cruel words almost caused me to lose a friend. Not just any friend either, my best friend!

Why aren't we talking more against this issue? 90 minute sermons on why homosexuals should die are rude and unneeded. This irritates the utter crap out of me and people really wonder why the heck I'm an atheist. Well look around!

I have made it a goal to help people who are homosexual to realize it's okay. I never want to see death caused or almost caused because of words said by a pastor or "prophet of god". Love should be equal and if there is a God, he should love everyone.

I'm sorry if this post has offended anybody. Keep in mind that this is my personal opinion and I don't want to force anyone into my views on the world.

They sure are!

I'm a Christian; If they don't understand the word of God themselves, they certainly have no right teaching me.
It's the reason I don't go to church anymore; too many self serving hypocrites.

It all starts with you and me,..'collectively'; if we speak our minds and hearts, and do it consistenly, justice will be served eventually. I believe this with all my heart. The wheels of justice turn slowly however, unfortunately...

We have come a long way in our attitudes though; so don't let the hypocrites discourange you.

Further, if you, and everyone got up and walked out, and stated first 'why'; that you are not there to help or to hear the spreading of hate in God's loving house...changes would be made...If people would just demand that the preachers practice what they preach! - Or have no one to preach TO!

It just confuses me. It just seems like nobody cares at times. I would have lost it if my friend did commit suicide because he was so scared to tell his family. (Incredibly religious family.) I agree with what you are saying and the wheels of justice are turning like a snail. I'm just proud of Obama for coming out and saying that all people deserve the same rights when it comes to love. That's a shred of hope I hold on to. (:

All people deserve the same rights. And RESPECT!


That's what I mean..just another example...If their words did play a part in someone's suicide, then wouldn't that make them a murderer? However indirect? Doesn't the Bible say "Thou shalt not Kill"?

I firmly believe that anyone who is hell bent on constant hate talk of gays are themselves in the closet. They are the MOST fearful of being found out; thus the lies and deception,..and diverting the attention.
