In response to southpaw777's comment:
Ill just come right out and say that I am a believer is Christ. I dont judge anyone for the way they live their life.
I have one all around rule in life. If you treat me and others with respect, you will get the same from me. I dont care if your black, white, gay, straight or whatever. If your a "good person" thats what counts. My cousin is gay and owns his own business, is a caring individual who respects everyone. Theres not a person around that could say a bad thing about him, but because hes gay he has to hear people like 67 spewing their ignorance and acting as if they are better than others. The people who hide behind their bibles and try to tell others how to live their life and dont like someone because of their sexual orientation are the ones who should re read their scriptures. Leave the judging to God. He doesnt need your help.
You dont have to agree with it at all. Thats your right and choice. But dont act all holier than thou and pass judgement on others who you dont even know and who probably dont deserve it.
Very well said SP. I myself am sick of all this Pro-gay stuff being pushed on me, as well as people trying to push religion on me. My grandmother is a Jehova's witness and pretty much all she does when i visit with her is try and push that garbage on me. As someone else said, Religion and politics divide people more than it brings people together. I have no problem with other people wanting to practice religion or if someone chooses to be gay
, It in no way affects my quality of life if my neighbor is gay or if a family member is gay or if someone wants to look to god as a guide in thier life. I just wish gays and religious people would have as much respect for people who don't choose to be involved in these things as the ones who respect the decisions they have made in life.
What ive leared over the years res, especially from my cuz, is that people dont choose to be gay. Why on earth would anyone open themselves up to all the criticism and ridicule, and even be physically attacked as well as verbally? We all knew from a young age that he was gay. It was pretty obvious.
I dont think you can just throw a blanket over every religious and homosexual person and say "I just wish gays and religious people would have as much respect for people who don't choose to be involved in these things as the ones who respect the decisions they have made in life. "
I understand what your saying, but i think your wording could be more direct to those that dont show respect and try to push their beliefs on others. I know a few gay guys and lesbians through my cousin and they dont push anything on anyone. there are a lot more that dont push their beliefs on others than ones that do from what Ive noticed.
Im not big on all the "celebrations" either res, but I also realize, like PG said, that their should be equal rights across the board when it comes to employment, marriage or whatever.
Respect is the word for the day here.
