People often ask me why everything I say has to do with the gay community. I am straight and a Christian but discrimination makes me angry. I can’t believe in 2010 if you are gay you can’t defend your country, you can’t marry the person you love, but you can be fired from your job just for being gay. I can’t believe that kids are being bullied so much that they think the only way out is suicide. I know it’s not just kids either.

Any of these things would make me want to speak out against the injustice but the thing that made me an activist and to not be able to shut up about it is the thing that bothers me the most. Christian’s, and I’m sorry to say I was one, using the bible to make people think that God doesn’t love them. I see the most hateful things everyday from people who say they are followers of Christ. They find ways to do away with the thing that Jesus said was the most important. He commanded us to LOVE GOD and to LOVE OTHERS. So take your favorite Leviticus verse and put it in line behind the COMMANDMENT. LOVE!

If you are gay please don’t listen to anyone who tells you that God hates you. God is crazy about you. Other people love you too. Things are going to change in the near future.  🙂

Here is a talk divided into 5 parts. Each start where the last left off. I don’t agree with everything that the Pastor says but I don’t think I agree with everything anyone says. I think his heart is closer to the heart of the guy we claim to be following if you are a Christian. It doesn’t really matter whether you think homosexuality is a sin or not, we are all sinners in one way or another. I dare you to watch the videos and then let us know what you think.  🙂 m

I was stunned at how much more like Jesus this video sounds. It sound much more like Him than the words coming out of many christian’s mouths.

Please don’t listen to anyone who says God doesn’t love you. He is crazy about you. Other people love you too. Stick around and see that it does get better.
