IF your God "punishes" sinners, why do you need laws like this?

I’ve decided that I’m going to use my blog to spread the message of love. Because at the end of the day the truth is that love is greater than hate. Hate is able to flourish in a garden of fear, and fear takes root where there is no love.

I choose today to have deep faith in the knowing that there is no way in hell, regardless of what this current administration does; whether they back out of the Paris Climate agreement, or even if as they did on October 3rd, reject the UN resolution that is against the use of the death penalty for any LGBTQ person, it will never become an “actual thing” that happens. Not in America. I choose to believe that ultimately there are more people of love who not only live there, and have the power to vote, but who also have the great privilege of being a person with power in the House and Senate to not let this happen.

Listen, I understand that there are those people who don’t “get” homosexuality. I also know that there are many who think the pan-gender, and transgender is all a “fad” that we will one day “live to regret.” I appreciate that there are a whole whack of people who think all of this is a sin against “their God.”

I get that these are your thoughts, your fears, your beliefs; of which you are entitled to. We all are the captains of our own minds, and what we do with those thoughts. But, for the life of me I will never, for as long as I have breath in my lungs, understand anybody’s pressing need to remove the right for others to love whom they love, or to be whatever gender they believe in their hearts they truly are.

What skin is it off your back??? Especially when, IF, and I use IF in all caps because, IF these same religious fanatics believe that this is a blight against their almighty God, and that it is an unforgivable sin, than why not simply leave it up to God. He is the ultimate judge as far as you believe. So let God deal with the LGBTQ people who in your mind are so out of line with Him.

This has always made me go “hmmm.”

I have a theory as to why all these religious people are so fearful, and are so desperate to try and control not only people of different races, and sexual orientation. They’re this way because deep down inside they know that God is a God of ultimate love. I mean IF you read and know your bible, which I happen to know very well from five years of being a Women’s Ministry leader, the New Testament is here to wipe out the old. Jesus came and died for ALL SINS. Not just YOUR sins, of which if you’re a human with air in your lungs, you sin at least once a day. Minimum. There is no person without sin. This is FACT. And if you know you bible, you know deep down in your soul that God is LOVE.

Not hate.

Not fear.

Not judgement.

Not violence.

Not death.

We are all His children, in all our wild colours, and genders.

The government has no place in deciding who gets to live or die based on who they love, and what sex they identify as. And I believe that whatever the US rejecting this means, I know deep in my heart and soul that there are not enough congress people to ever make this a law.

Because love is greater than hate.
