Earlier this year, I was at a friend’s party, and we were playing a game, though I don’t remember what it was called. The object of the game is for one person to read out a question, and people write down anonymous answers, and the “Chooser” guesses who answered what. One question was, If you could go on a march for some cause, what would it be? So I think a little, and I lean over to the friend on my left and ask her, “Do you think I could make up an “Anti-Haters” March?” And she says, “Sure! But no! Make it an “Anti-Mean People March”! It would be so you!” So, even though the point is to put down answers that the Chooser won’t guess, I put down an Anti-Mean People March. I’m sure you can figure out who the Chooser guessed when she saw that one… But it was still fun to put down that answer, and it’s become somewhat of an inside joke between my friends and I.
So here we go on my Anti-Mean People March, er…Rant.
You know what bugs me? People who get upset and angry and start hatin’ for no real reason at all. Like the whole Chick-fil-A issue. That issue just bothers me, ‘cause it’s so stupid. Seriously, one person can’t express his opinion without one person taking offense, and another person taking offense at that? And suddenly, everybody’s taking sides, and people don’t even remember what the issue’s about anymore. It’s called FREEDOM OF SPEECH! Seriously, you’ve never come across people who don’t have views that are different from yours? Especially on the same-sex marriage debate. Practically everybody except for me has some sort of view about the rights of homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual people. And the reason I don’t have a view about rights is because I’m not into politics. I’d rather concern myself with what I can do for these people. And for me, that’s love. Yup. Love.
It’s really sad, because a lot of the haters of these people who have different sexual orientations are Christians. But they’re not being real Christians. They’re not following in Christ’s footsteps and loving people. What happened to “God is love”?!? Anyways, I’m not going to rant. Too much. But still, I know a couple people who are homosexuals and bisexuals, and I love them. I don’t love their sexual orientation, but I love them. There’s a difference. But a lot of people don’t see that difference. So, here’s my anti-mean people march. God is the one who saves and heals, and God can bring these people to the sexual orientation that pleases Him. Please, if you are a homosexual, bisexual, or transsexual, don’t get offended at me. I know that God loves you, and because of God, I love you too. So, this actually isn’t just an Anti-Mean People March, it’s a LOVE MARCH!! Yay!! I’m like Martin Luther King, Jr., spreading my opinion in a friendly, peaceful way J
But I can’t stand how some people say, “God HATES gay people! Gay people are going to HELL!” AGH! Seriously people, you are so narrow-minded!! Go, check your Bible before you start making judgments for God about people you haven’t even taken the time to know and understand. And these people who just need love hear all this HATING that’s going around! And they assume that all people believe this, and that God DOES hate them and so do all Christians and that the Bible condemns them but all that is NONSENSE! Sorry, it just really bothers me. There’s the protest part of my march right there. The point is that God loves gay people. In the Bible, Jesus says, “And love your neighbor as yourself”. He didn’t add, “Except for homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual people. You can love the prostitutes, love the murderers, love the thieves, you can even love the Gentiles, but don’t you DARE love people with different sexual orientations as yourselves.” NO! That would have been ridiculous! But that’s how people interpret the Bible, and it’s STUPID! People really need to broaden their horizons, and learn a little bit of love.
We’re on a love march people. It was a misnomer the whole time. Because even the mean people deserve love, which is why I’m not calling it an Anti-Mean People March. I love you. Yes, you. I don’t care if you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, a Democrat, a Republican, a Christian, an Atheist, a Buddhist, a lover, or a hater.
But I love you.
