Music: Bright Eyes- From a Balance Beam.
Work in an hour.
A sun waiting behind the clouds.
these horrendous men of violence , dividing communities and families
with a message of judgement and pharisee like adherence to a broken law,
do they have no concept of looking at this like an outsider?!? Marriage
is a institution from the state- and given Marriage Equality for people
like me - there will be NOTHING forcing the Church to get involved-
they need not preside over any such weddings.
If removing themselves from an equation of love support and bringing
forth of life into the world is the Church's stance fine! Fine don't
take part! But why must you bring your religion into a political stage
that literally does not effect your organization. I can promise you by
the rhetoric used that none of those utterances and fear filled speech
come from a place of concern for me- my well being or spiritual
potential for heaven in the future. I do not legislate your way of life-
and I live in the United States of America- a land of equality for all
regardless of pesky little things like religion race sexuality or
political preference. Speakers from the Church on these issues may shore
up and affirm support from the radical few- but you bring division to
your community as well- over a fight that is not yours. The country has a
short memory but not so short i think to forget about the institutions
who regularly come down against those with no protection or support in
our culture. The number of scriptures being quotes that just make my
insides burn for remembrance of the biblical arguments used not so long
ago to keep African Americans enslaved, abused, not protected under our
Your greatest commandment is to love your neighbor. I
feel belittled and hated by millions I have never met, and it breaks my
heart because I have no doubt every one of them is a worthwhile person.
So I curse the men (because let's be honest the Church's bringing this
hate and environment of suicide and self harm to the children of our
country do not have women running them.) given the honor and power of
those pulpits, that would use them to harm and hurt humans, every one
worthy of Love.
