OK, this is something I’ve been thinking about for two weeks, and I need to get it out of my head and onto some medium. I apologize, since this may offend some of you.
Dear Christian Conservatives (you know who you are) : I’s OK to be Gay and Christian. Gay people do not need healing, saving, curing, or behavior modification any way different than heterosexuals do.
Do us all a favor, and remember that the New Covenant applies to *ALL* things unclean, and not just to the rules you don’t like. After much pondering, the only “sinful behavior” I can find falls into the realm of adultery/promiscuity – and as a heterosexual, I’ve been guilty of that one (prior to my marriage, before anyone panics, thanks). So let’s all take a chill pill, and remember none of us are perfect, and Christ gave himself for everyone, regardless of race, color, sexuality, age, or financial bracket.
Look guys, there are a lot bigger problems and “attacks on American Values” than two men (or women) who are in a loving relationship. Statistically speaking today, it’s more likely a committed homosexual couple will stay together than a heterosexual couple. So please, let’s remember something – Christ had strong words for the self-rightous, for the judgmental, and for the Priests and Pharisees who were more interested in the letter of the law and not the spirit of the law.
If two consenting adults want to get married, I say “Go for it.” And let’s give them the blessings (and legal status) they deserve and let them get on with their lives.
To all my gay friends, friends of friends, and so on – I love you all (in a totally non-sexual way. Nothing personal, I just don’t swing that way), and hope that more people can get over it already. If I EVER say anything that you take issue with, speak up. Correct me, and help me understand where I’m getting it wrong. And hey, God loves you too, just the way you are. And don’t let ANYONE tell you any different.
