Religion and people have been meshed together for centuries. There are different beliefs and religions ie, Christianity, Agnostic, Islamic, Atheism, Wiccan, and various sects and denominations within each religion. However religion can be downright ugly and down right evil.
I myself, identify as a Christian. I also happen to be Gay. I’ve been in many churches and left them because I was made to feel less than a person because I was gay. The crazy part is that the main person doing the Gay bashing was indeed an undercover lesbian herself.
Now correct me if I’m wrong, I never once read in the Bible where Jesus himself condemned the Gays. Granted we are under a “new covenant,” seeing as the Mosaic law did not do what it was sent out to do (and I’m paraphrasing) in terms of ones spirit. Just like the religious bigots of Jesus’s time want to pick and choose we have those that do the same.
I was in a service one Sunday and a pastor commented stating “a man is a man and a woman is a woman. He wasn’t born like that.” I wanted to yell at the top of my lungs “how in the hell would you know? Did you choose to be straight?” However, I just overlooked his tirade and his need for attention and zoned out.
I wasn’t being disrespectful towards the man of God, but I just tuned him out. I can’t stand when preachers get up and call themselves condemning the Gays, but won’t condemn murders, child molesters, adulterers, thieves, and hypocrites, but they are quick to knock the Gays, Lesbians, and Transgenders down. I’ve learned that many of those that Gay bash are Gay or Homosexual themselves.
Also with recent setbacks in America, especially with Mississippi passing the religious freedoms bill
, which is slated to start Summer of 2014, allows religion to be used in healthcare treatment, restaurants, aiding those who are less fortunate, and increases discrimination especially against Gays. In my honest opinion if anyone dare say they are a Christian and thinks that such laws are okay, then they are going against the teachings of Jesus…I’m just saying. So much hypocrisy. If Jesus taught love, where is the love in not treating someone the way you want to be treated? How is discrimination showing love?
Didn’t America leave Britain to be come religiously free, but now we are all of a sudden oppressing people because of religion.? Girl, bye!!! This is a mess and these politicians know it. I bet they will see the damage that the law will cause especially in their economy and the downfall of their businesses for turning people away. Isn’t such law unconstitutional? For this to be the land of the free, a modern day slavery is surely being put in place. Did we forget about the separation of church and state? I guess these political jackasses forgot about that. I’m done with this topic before I get heated and offend some people.
