Truth Beauty Freedom and Above All Things Love

"No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody. ~Rita Mae Brown, speech, 28 August 1982"

There are children, like Bobby, sitting in your congregations. Unknown to you they will be listening as you echo “amen” and that will soon silence their prayers. Their prayers to God for understanding and acceptance and for your love but your hatred and fear and ignorance of the word gay, will silence those prayers. So, before you echo “amen” in your home and place of worship. Think. Think and remember a child is listening.

It confuses me when homosexuals are extremely religious. Why? Because here is someone who is absolutely shunned by a certain belief and continues their ways which are considered sinful. Yet they still choose to follow and believe all other aspects of this religion. I don’t get it, do they just ignore the part in the bible that goes against homosexuality? Most overly religious people aren’t very open minded, how do these people go to church. Is there such thing as a all gay christian church? Do gays have there own religion as well. We have seen throughout history, that every time someone has minor disagreements with Christian ideals they just branch off and start a new religion i.e Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, etc. Is this what religious homosexuals have done? Since they don’t agree with the consequences of eternal damnation for being homosexual, do they just start there own form of Christianity? One that keeps all close minded Christian ideas except for the anti-homosexuality clause. How are these homosexuals able to be so close minded still, yet they want people to be open minded to their way of life?

Not every church believes homosexuality is a sin. They go to churches who have grown out of the old belief systems and realized that the old ideas were wrong. There are few churches that believe slavery is right, you shouldn’t marry another person of different colour, and so many other old things that cause unneeded discrimination. Some churches believe being gay is a gift from god. Every church is different. They don’t ignore what it says they take it as being something that people of that time needed. In a lot of cases its just written wrong and is referring to pedophiles and people who have sex for the hell of it, instead of love. EVERY church is different. I know anglican churches that accept homosexuality, I know united churches that accept homosexuality. It depends on the people. They aren’t being closed minded, they are slowly getting acceptance from the church and want to feel like god loves them too. If god is up there, he must love everyone, he created us to be who we are, we are perfect in his eyes. 
I hope you aren’t someone too close minded to see that. 
Sorry about the giant face on my dashboard. :P

So what happens when your gay ?

juaneatsclouds:

you really wanna know ……………….. YOUR LIFE FUCKING SUCKS . the end

Hey. I don’t know you or anything but the people on the it gets better project are right. It does get better. You will be okay. Try to stick it out. The bullying can be bad, the hiding from those you love maybe even harder but when you finally get the courage to be who you are you will find the gay world is pretty big. I have so many friends who support and love me and my parents are even accepting and I was scared they wouldn’t be. If you are upset about love, well some gay guys are douche bags. Watch out for people who just want you for sexual things and look for love. Sexual relationships only can be nice but emotionally taxing. I hope this helps. I know its gotten so much better for me. I was cutting myself and on the border line of suicide and now I don’t think I’ve been happier. I hope I helped. 

Keep in mind that someone loves you. Someone cares about you and you will be okay. If you want to talk to me about anything go for it. I’m not a professional but I can help.
