I have family who are Republican Christians. I was raised in a Christian home of “Bible thumpers”. They believe that their way is the only way. I have gay and lesbian friends who have partners in their lives that they love and will probably be with forever.
Christians, you are only pushing people away. Quoting scripture, lecturing and congratulating yourselves is a self serving act and will not result in anyone’s mind being changed. Posting things under the pretense of your faith that projects hate is discrimination and is not the point of the bible.
I will always take the side of the little guy. I will always support them and love them because they need it the most. That’s what I learned from growing up in a household where we went to church on Sunday. I don’t know what you are learning at church now, but it’s not the same Jesus I learned about when I was a kid.
Christians stop folding your arms and wipe the smug look off of your faces. We all believe differently and we all have different ideas of what love is. One thing it’s not is discriminatory. We all feel it and you won’t ever tell me who I can love or how I love them. When I see lines at a fast food place that supports discrimination it makes me almost as sick as if I had eaten their food.
The message I want to convey is STOP repeating what has been programmed for you to say in response to anyone who apposes your beliefs. It has nothing to do with the heart and you will never make sense of what someone’s heart wants. Turn off FOX news and quit parroting Republican talking points. We get it you disagree with everything. How has your anger worked for you so far? Has it changed anything?
My challenge to anyone reading this is to do something that adds a positive connection to others and stop worrying so much about everyone agreeing with you. It’s such an ego-maniacal way to exist. It hasn’t improved anything and only seems to be getting worse. We don’t need more religion. The one thing you claim to know about but rarely seem to have conveyed is love. Don’t hide behind all that you “are sure” is right and call that love. It’s not and you know it.
OR just keep doing the same things and get the same results and push open minded people away from ever listening to your message.
I’m in radio and one thing I learned fast is that if you don’t like something change the station. If you have nothing positive to say in support of other humans who love each other and don’t want to open your mind to someone else’s ideas, change the station. We’ve learned to change it and stopped listening the static long ago. Your move.
