Instead of worrying about what Jesus “doesn’t want people to do” why don’t you go out there with the attitude of doing the things he WANTS you to do? Instead of hating people because they’re different than you, go out and help the poor/hungry? Honestly, you can’t even call yourself a good christian if you’re out there advocating hate and I don’t find it acceptable for you to say “I don’t hate gay people, Jesus does.” God loves all of us: all colors, shapes, sizes, sexual orientation, and gender. While you’re over there complaining about something that doesn’t matter or affect you in any way, our economy is failing and the middle class is in jeopardy… good job, guys.
I’m boycotting chik-fil-a, which is easy since I don’t like it anyways, but if someone like McDonald’s were to say the same thing, they’d be out of my diet faster than you know. Look around, ghettos and impoverished areas are growing, crime is up, and what do republicans want to talk about? Whether women should have control over their own bodies and if the right of marriage should be extended to same sex couples. Really? We have more important issues… this is the stuff that really upsets me. A girl who goes to my school posted a picture online of her with a clik-fil-a bag saying “I support.” You support what exactly? Hate? Inequality? Certainly that isn’t anything to be proud of, is it? If it is, I’m disgusted.
Remember when African Americans were second class citizens and Christians used the bible to say slavery was okay? Or when they used it to say men were better than women? Gay and Lesbian teens are two-three times more likely to commit suicide than their straight peers. Plus, it’s been scientifically proven that being gay is NOT a choice, it’s in your genes. I suppose science knows nothing and being gay is a choice just as much as evolution, right? WRONG. Religion was a good idea at first, teaching people to help the less fortunate… but it’s being used as a tool to manipulate the thoughts of our society- that’s wrong. Especially because this is a free country and our laws should have nothing to do with what different religious leaders think.
In the bible, it says that homosexuality is an abomination; a few lines before, it says eating shrimp is an abomination. Also, people never look into the historical context of some of the things in the bible. Men lying with men and women lying with women was considered just as bad as ejaculating outside of your partner because she wouldn’t get pregnant (they were having population issues. The word “abomination” didn’t even mean what it does today… it meant abnormal. Which, being gay is abnormal- but it’s not wrong.
Personally I feel like you can look down on homosexuals unless you know one personally- like my uncle- that kind of stuff changes your views. You start to see that instead of sex-craving, evil-doers…. they’re really just people.
I’m sorry- but I needed to rant.
