This article is going to be a bit different from my other posts. It’s going to be a bit surprising to some & I’m sure I will have some unfollows, some mean emails and some slander. But I think it’s important once in a while to spread a message that is stronger than the hate.
But I’m getting tired of the hate. I’m getting tired of the trolls on social media. I realize that they will never go away, but if I can help change one persons heart with this blog, that’s better than nothing. This blog is not specifically for “Gay” people, but that is just who I decided to focus on as it’s “pride month” this month.
You see, growing up as a Christian, you are basically told that being “Gay” is unacceptable, wrong and sinful. Which somehow translates into such deep hate.
In our society right now they are pushing things like “Sogi 123” into our school systems and painting rainbow sidewalks in every town.
Here’s the thing, they’re doing these things because certain households and people teach their children ( who grow up into adults ) that these people need to be hated, feared and taunted.
I might not understand being gay or transgender, BUT, that shouldn’t matter and shouldn’t effect how you treat a person. You woke up one day, picked what you were going to eat for breakfast, who you were going to love, how many kids you would have and what job you would work at. It’s our right as a human. What isn’t our right is to judge and hate people who might have different ideals than you or I.
Since when was it okay to hate someone with different ideals than you?
Instead of introducing Sogi into our school systems, I wish they were pushing equality and love harder into the system. Because if it isn’t a gay person being bullied, it’s someone who might have a deformity or might not act like you, a girl who has struggled with her weight her entire life, a boy who has a severe stutter, or a sweet kid who might come from the wrong side of town.
It isn’t fair. It isn’t right.
As a young child we are pure and love purely. So what happens? The ideals of the parents are pushed onto the kids and it creates this cycle of abuse and hate.
So while I might not be 100% comfortable with a gay person, or understand them. I also think it’s SO important to treat anyone and everyone with love and respect. From a Christian standpoint this is how Jesus would of treated them and you should too.
This is the message of this blog. It’s a reminder to us ‘grown-ups’ to love, to show grace and be kind. It’s a simple message, yet somehow so many forget.
Next time you’re sitting behind your computer screen or on your phone, try to remember that there’s a person on the other side of that device. Just like you, that person has feelings.
Love is Love.
So I dare you, when you see someone who you are about to judge, anyone, from any walk of life, think before you do. I dare you to throw around kindness like confetti.
