This was the day that the US legalized same-sex marriage and it was beautiful day. It was touching to see something that a number of people were fighting for for years materialize. And of course, with the happiness and celebration, comes all the hate. And with all of the hate already present in this world, I want to be a little light that would shine for anybody who would read my words and as long as my words remain and could be read by the future earth inhabitants, that little light will never flicker.
1. If you hate gays and the only reason you can come up with is the Bible then you are probably looking for these:
In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
“‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the LORD your God to pay any vow, because the LORD your God detests them both.
And if so, let me remind you (because you might just have forgotten) that the Bible also bans these things:
Leviticus 19:27 reads “You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard.”
Leviticus 11:8 reads “You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.”
Leviticus 19:31 reads “Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.”
Genesis 38:9-10: “Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother. But what he did was displeasing in the sight of the Lord; so He took his life also.”
Leviticus 19:28 reads, “You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord.”
Leviticus 19:19 reads, “You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.”
Mark 10:8-9, you “are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”
Mark 10:11-12, “And He said to them, ‘Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her; and if she herself divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery.'”
Deuteronomy 23:1 reads “A man whose testicles are crushed or whose penis is cut off may never join the assembly of the Lord.”
Deuteronomy 23:2 reads, “No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the Lord; none of his descendants, even to the tenth generation, shall enter the assembly of the Lord.”
Timothy 2:9 “Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments.”
Leviticus 11:10 reads, “But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you.”
Deuteronomy 25:11-12. “If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity.”
If you only do some of the teachings of the Bible because they are convenient for you, sorry your argument is invalid. Go to directly to Jail, do not pass Go, do not collect 200.
2. They spread Sexually Transmitted Infections
Yeah, and so does heterosexual sex. Proper education and prevention are the only ways to stop STI’s. Be faithful to your partner!
Think of another reason why you’re homophobic. Think!
3. They are abnormal/unnatural and an abomination
That, my friend, is the reason I am looking for from you. Because that proves that the problem does not lie with them being homosexuals but the problem you have with them lies within you. You see what you see and you hate what you hate because of what you perceive. Notice the “you” in these sentences?
Don’t site the bible, don’t think of new excuses and research facts. You don’t like it period. The last time I checked nobody told you to become one so I’m not sure why you are even bothering. Let’s put it this way:
You are diabetic and I love cakes. Why are you hating on me just because you can’t eat cakes?
You are allergic to shellfish, are you going to protest in front of Bubba Gump?
You eat broccoli, I don’t. Does that mean we cannot eat on the same table?
The success of a working marriage and family doesn’t depend on gender or sexual orientation. It depends on two people making something work. The sanctity of marriage you are talking about has already been being violated years ago when one woman slept with another man, when one man hit a woman, when one man neglected his child, when one woman hit her child.
What I admire is two people, not even married, but lasting on for years and years growing old together and taking care of each other physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
What I admire is two people, bringing up a child without malice and hate, with an open mind and heart to see all sides to see what is good and to see what is love.
What I admire is two people who wants these things because they want them and not just because society thinks that’s what’s “normal”.
I will close this with my recent facebook status:
” I don’t usually comment to other people’s posts but in the spirit of another country’s liberation I would like to share to everyone my comment on one of my friends’ post:
‘To each his own’ ‘Freedom of expression’ that’s what LGBT represent, and though as their supporter, I also believe that these concepts apply to the other side of the spectrum so I don’t hate you or your post because you are just stating your beliefs and opinions just like us. All I know is that Religion separate us, Faith reunites us. And to anybody who’s also pro LGBT who will comment after me, swallow your hate comments because it’s not about gays or straight, believers or non believers, Christians or not. It’s all about love and love is universal and spreading hate comments is counterproductive. We don’t want their beliefs stuffed in our throats so let’s not stuff our beliefs in theirs. Let’s just all get along because we live in one earth and we all have one God and that’s what God taught me. God is love so love is omnipotent (can do anything), omnipresent (everywhere all at the same time) and omniscient (complete and unlimited) and #LoveWins everytime. God bless us all”
