Gay marriage is still a huge issue in today’s society. Why? I honestly don’t understand it. Why is it so wrong for two people to love each other, just because they both have penises or vaginas? Love is love. No matter who you choose to give it to. I’m not saying that all Christians are evil, but most are. Most of them are bigoted, hateful people. Judging people just because they believe their Bible tells them to. Well guess what? I was forced to go to church my entire childhood and I never once learned that or read it.
1Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Hmm. Sounds like judging people was not in God’s plan for man. I was always taught not to judge people just because they are different than me. Who taught me that? My Christian grandmother. Yet she herself judges people. She once asked me if I was a devil worshiper just because I wore an Avenged Sevenfold hoodie. This is why she will never know that I am a bi-curious woman. I would be forever disowned. Is it fair that Chick-fil-A gets a national day, just because the CEO doesn’t believe in gay marriage? Absolutely NOT.
There is NOTHING, repeat NOTHING, wrong with being gay, lesbian, bi, or transgender. You are who you are. No one can change you. I guess that these so called ‘righteous' people would rather have hundreds of orphaned children in foster homes than allow a gay couple to give them a LOVING home. How is that okay? They aren't going to make them gay. You can't make someone something that they are not.
Also on the subject of religion. WHY does one religious person’s beliefs get to dictate what someone else does with their life? I’m sick of hearing politicians say things like “gay marriage is wrong because God says so” or “abortion is wrong because the Bible says every life is precious.” Why do I have to care what the Bible says if I’m not Christian? I distinctly remember learning in school about a separation of church and state. I know for a fact that I didn’t dream it.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
From Thomas Jefferson:
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between church and State.
This to me says that one man’s personal beliefs are his own. So why does congress continue to pass laws based on Bible interpretation? Anyone can interpret the Bible to fit their own agenda. And if anyone remembers correctly, Jesus was the King of Jews. So technically, the Christian religion is the wrong one. But that isn’t for me to judge. I’m not that kind of person. I only judge people by what they do to others. Be it killing people or abusing them. Something needs to be done about the perversion of the Bible to get people what they want.
