I don’t speak much on this topic. I have dabbled here and there. I even went so far as to post a fellow bloggers link on my fan page that caused an uproar, but I personally have never really spoken out on my stance. So here it is:
My mother and father were married. He was a drunk. He physically and verbally abused her. They divorced.
My mother remarried. He (my step-dad) had an affair. They divorced.
Oh, can I add in that my step-dad had already been married previous to marrying my mother. And divorced.
Since having an affair and divorcing my mother, my step-dad has remarried.
Is this what is considered the biblical definition of family?
I am not going to get into the religious debate with anyone. I will say this:
The only one who is allowed to judge is God and you are not Him.
What I don’t understand is why who I love has anything to do with another person.
How does my relationship with my husband affect you? How does a female in a relationship with a female affect you? How does a male in a relationship with a male affect you? Does it hurt you?
I’m going to venture out on a limb and say no because I know that having friends and family who are in same sex relationships affects me in no way, shape or form. It does not harm me or hurt me. It does not harm or hurt my children or my family unit so it sure as hell should not hurt you or your children or your family.
Who someone loves is none of your damn business. Period.
And while I’m up on my soap box, let me ask you this -
If a big company were to publicly say that they do not support a certain race, would you still support that company?
Why is this any different? It’s not.
If someone were to say that they did not support African Americans or Hispanics or Asians, people would be up in arms. They would not stand by and allow such blasphemy.
So tell me, why is it okay to stand by and support people who do not support same sex relationships? It’s the same damn thing.
Wait, you’re right, it is different. Because different races are free to choose who they love. They are allowed to be married. They are allowed benefits that heterosexual couples are provided.
Do you want to know what I call that? I call that hypocrisy and I do not support it.
