I hope I don’t offend anyone. You should know by now how much/litle I like to talk about this. . . )
Let’s start with this beautiful video of beautiful parents, and beautiful teens sharing an important moments in their lives. And to them it turned out beautifully. (Sadly this is not the reality to many)
As a few might know, I am not the one who don’t like to discuss my views on homosexuality in public. Many strong opinions, and all that, and it should be so.
But it happens that I sometimes want to say something about it, like now.
Before I have always been neutral, flat, ”No opinion”, on this topic.
Now I can’t picture me anything else than a : ”So much yes”
I don’t know. I’ve got older and wiser? Learned more, educated myself by paying more attention, listened more, spend times with different kind of people? I don’t know.
But what I DO know is that love is the keyword. Everyone deserve and needs it. Love is on the top of everything. How can we love if we don’t know love.
The Bible say’s a beautiful thing about love : ” And biggest of everything is love”
L o v e. Love is biggest of everything.
Therefore : Gay people do.not.go.to.hell – period.
As a Christian myself I get pissed and frustrated by other Christians actually saying they do. Scaring them away instead of showing them the ”love” Jesus want us to share with ALL kind’s people. It’s not the way to go to share love. In stead they create fear towards something as beautiful as love.
Fear a completely normal thing as love between two people.
And this just cause in extreme situation :
– Children that live in fear for they parents, friends, society.
– Low self esteem
– Fear of not being loved
– Fear of not being accepted
– Fear of being excluded (from home, friends,family)
Fear fear fear fear . . . just because from the one they are. And they are not even hurting people. They just want to live a normal life as everyone else. Love as everyone else. No matter what gender. It is in my opinion not important.
Love is love.
Wikipedia on love:
”Love encompasses a variety of strong and positive emotional and mental states, ranging from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection and to the simplest pleasure.An example of this range of meanings is that the love of a mother differs from the love of a spouse, which differs from the love of food. Most commonly, love refers to a feeling of strong attraction and emotional attachment. Love can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”. It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals.Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts. Love has been postulated to be a function to keep human beings together against menaces and to facilitate the continuation of the species.”
It is not a new thing that religion is what might cause these fears in the first place. Religion or people twisting religion in their own ways.
Some churches and other religious ways practice this ‘fear’ in their lessons, and I think its just wrong. Don’t practice fear against a completely innocent group of people! Practice love. SO EASY, so hard.
There are beautiful priest(and people) and not so beautiful priests(and people) on this topic, all around the world, so don’t judge them all.
Jesus says : Let all children come to me. (We are the children. All of us. Those who want to come, they come. Everyone are welcome.)
I despite priests/people that close their doors for gay people who wants to be there. Seriously. I don’t think God would be proud about that action.
And don’t even get me started on the (few, luckily) people who walks up with signs saying : ”God hates Gay people” ”Gay people goes to hell”
Nope. Wrong. Fail. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Assholes.
I could write a long post about Religion and homosexuality, but I won’t, lets just leave that discussion for another time. (Let’s also drop the – religion is the source of all evil, it’s not that ‘simple’, and I have heard it all before, trust me – You can have that discussion anywhere else on the internet.:) )
I have many gay/bi friends. Close and distant.
And they are all lovely people that I would not been without. They have teached me a lot.
My close gay friends knew about my ‘neutral’ zone, and they have not judged me. . . as far as I know.
But now I cannot say that I am neutral anymore : I am positive. 100% (Even attended the Pride walk, in Cracow and everything. It was not planned, but we just felt the only right thing to do was to walk with them.) 🙂
I have always been for : Love. Of course two people have the right to love one another. It’s not gross, and can never be. Love is always beautiful. And biggest of it all, is love. Think of everything you can bake in the word ‘love’? It’s not only between two people. It’s SO much more.
Be kind, be gentle, be respectful and be loving.
ESPECIALLY if you are a parent. I can’t even in my wildest fantasy imagine me as a parent trowing my kid out on the streets because they tell me that they are gay.
But this happens in this world, today! Can you believe it? It’s just sick. Don’t they love their child more than that? What is LOVE, where is the LOVE? It’s your child, YOUR creation. It’s not a privilege to have a child. If they can’t teach their child that every person is valuable no matter what person/gender they choose to love, well – People like that don’t deserve to have children. . .
Love breeds love. Hate breeds hate. Fear breeds fear, and so on.
Let’s not attack our neighbor for doing things differently than you (unless it’s harmful to anyone)
I might loose my point now, but what I meant is : You have my 100% support!
And now days videos like this one (above) is just warming my heart. To see that there are hope for human kind, and to see that there are people out there who truly understand the meaning of love. Imagine how much that means to these teens. Come on, that act of that parent changes their lives, in a good way.
They learn that they are accepted, loved, and that its totally OK to feel/be that way!
I am a Christian and I love gay people.
