Sorry, but perhaps they(on both sides) should actually read the Bible before making this silliness go further. Both sides in this argument are plain stupid in this. The Anti-gay group is silly because 1)they are trying to impose their ‘beliefs’ on the other side(If over 50% of marriages end in bitter divorce, then everyone has the right to be miserable). 2) This will mean more tax dollars to the State and isn’t that what politicians want? And the Pro-Gay Marriage group is silly for 1) trying impose their ‘beliefs’ on the other side (If over 50% of marriages end in bitter divorce, then everyone has the right to be miserable too), and 2) the photo is stating Old Testament, not New Testament. And in that lies the problem with the sign in the photo. Jesus said in the New Testament that a ‘New Covenant’ was made with God and the old laws about planting/clothing/food, etc no longer applied. Furthermore, people tend to forget Jesus didn’t go to the synagogues to preach(except when he was a boy to discuss theology with the priests), he went to the people and not the church(because he already knew of the corruption). Also, if one wants to spout the Bible(Pro and Con) here you go “Judge not, that ye be not judged” (Matthew 7:1-6). If you think they are wicked, let them be that. But if you are going to open and run a business, do it(unless it is profane-different argument). Make the money because you can’t take it with you when you die anyways.
Also with the photo, it seems that they are attacking Christianity only. No one would attack the Jews for this, no. Or the Muslims, heck no. Or Buddhists, nope. Or Sikhs, or any other religion out of fear of reprisal or being compared to Nazis or whatever(yes I have read that before..ugh). So, as a Christian(not a good one, mind you, I am not perfect), I am frustrated by the lack of, well, verve in this matter. We are not supposed to judge and yet be united in our ‘religion’. Christianity today is broken. Not in it’s reliance on God and the Bible, but that priests, pastors, reverends have let politics guide them instead of the Word of God. Instead of loving thy neighbor, we are chastising and attacking them. Are we not warned against this in the Bible? Live a Godly life and show the world that it is good, but since the political realm has bled into ‘religion’, it is corrupted.
As for the ones who wrote the sign or believe it to be true. You are equally corrupt in your ignorance to what you spout. If a person/business chooses not to serve you, is it not their right? Then go somewhere else. Like on TV, if you don’t like it, turn the channel. I have heard that from both sides of this and absolutely No One follows it. That is ignorance. And stupidity. The original blogger who posted this sign wrote “Cherry-picking the parts of the Bible you like/don’t like is hypocritical.” Yep. And you have just done that yourself. So that makes you hypocritical too. Ass.
Personally, I could care less. I have friends that are homosexual and they are good people, just as I have Heterosexual friends and they are equally good people. Do I agree with it? Doesn’t matter. That is between me and God. I am not clean enough to judge anyone. I am a sinner. I have done evil and bad things, and I have heaps of regret. I am, however, disgusted by the intolerance and ignorance on both sides of this ‘debate'[a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints or deliberation; consideration] to which there is no debate. The Pro-Gay crowd says if you don’t agree you are hated and attacked(not physically, but verbally) and if you are the Anti-Gay side you are ‘going to Hell’. There is no debate here. And the mainstream press, instead of actually ‘reporting’ the news and facts, have taken sides and sifting through the truth and using what they want to promote an agenda(see the hypocritical part above). Make no mistake there is an agenda, well 2 agendas. And both are trying to force their opinions and beliefs on everyone else. And do you honestly think all those people protesting are from those states? Nope. They are bussed and flown in from other states. I know, let’s have a state referendum where the people of that state vote on it and make it a law. Oh yeah, they DID do that. In California and Utah, etc. But a ‘Federal Judge'(appointed, not elected) changed the ruling against the voters. Now this is a different argument but I will add it cause I am on a tying roll.This part offends me to the bone. If you don’t like what a state has voted for, don’t go there. But no, the will of the voters is thrown out, why? Because of an agenda. Imagine this, if you can, if voters unanimously chose to not allow the color red. Silly isn’t it. Then some judge, not even FROM that state says it is an illegal law. But the people voted on it, and passed it, is it now the law of the land? Nope. Because then the Feds could withhold funding(extortion) to that state because someone disagrees. We will never, ever all agree. That is the nature of humanity. But there is social engineering taking place here that is attempting to be hidden. We have politicians saying that being gay is ok and normal, yet go over to Muslim nations and saying that Sharia Law is ok?? Hello Orwell. Hello morons.
And to restate my opinion: Personally, I could care less. I have friends that are homosexual and they are good people, just as I have Heterosexual friends and they are equally good people. Do I agree with it? Doesn’t matter. That is between me and God. I am not clean enough to judge anyone. I am a sinner. I have done evil and bad things, and I have heaps of regret. And from what I have been told, and will be after this is posted, I am stupid, ignorant, silly, whatever. I see the world differently I guess. I will not change that view, and that is my right. Unless some judge somewhere decides I am intolerant or a criminal for what I believe. Whatever. You may disagree or agree on some points or none of this. But I am honestly tired of this fucking ‘debate’, tired of hearing about it, tired of reading about it. Live your life, people tell me, yet all this insanity continues. And all the while this continues, there are people in Government trying to take away liberties by decree instead of following the Constitution, and they are getting away with corrupting the fabric of this declining nation. And people wonder and tell me why I get depressed. And speaking of that, all of you who are truly concerned with my well being, thank you. And those who(and there are many) who have expert advice on me, yeah, I say, make sure your relationships are perfect before judging me, I am forgiving, but not stupid.
In closing on this rant I will say this: I don’t care if you want a marriage license. I do not. I don’t want to get married anymore, at one time I did and I screwed that up. If you want to be happy, who am I to say? Knock yourself out. Me? I want to be a hermit in the mountains away from people and that is my goal. I am tired of the pettiness, corruption and ignorance. I am guilty of it too. I am my own worst critic, so I don’t need to be crucified over this rant, I will do that to myself. If you don’t agree, fine. Just delete it off of your timeline or delete me(just let me know so I know who is deleting me pls), I don’t care anymore. I am going to work on getting fit and learning what I need to learn for my future. I have enough things weighing me down. And if you think I am doing this rant to piss someone off, nope. I wrote this because I think of it as self-therapy. I have vented, now I am good. So have a good day, be happy, and remember this. Batman. Is. Awesome.
