Since when is it okay for everyone EXCEPT Christians to graffiti their opinions all over facebook? Atheists and Agnostics are hogging the newsfeed with all their hateful comments towards Christians (if they don’t believe in God, why do they talk about Him so much, anyways?) and if we dare to comment back we’re deleted, mocked, blocked, yelled at, whatever. I mean, it’s not like I think that Atheists and Agnostics stating their opinions is a horrible, bad thing. It’s more the way they do it that offends me. If I sat on facebook all day and made fun of Atheists, I would be torn to pieces by them, probably have my facebook account confiscated by the facebook Nazis, and be getting hate mail. But you know, Atheists can say whatever they want and it’s okay.
And then there’s all the gay rights stuff. There’s this attitude like, “If you don’t accept gays and love them and support them, you hate them and want them to die”. Really? No, I don’t support people’s decision to be gay. No, I don’t hate them and want them to die. I don’t treat them differently from anyone else in the world.
I took driver’s ed with a lesbian. I was the only girl in class who would talk to her. I sat by her in class, took all the driving sessions with her, and even hung out with her. It was just two girls having fun. So what if she was gay? I am not a homophobe, but I see nothing wrong with being one. I mean, if you AREN’T grossed out by what they do, then…something is wrong. For me, being gay is like smoking. It’s gross, it’s bad for you, and it’s a sin. I hate homosexuality. I hate smoking. I love homosexual people (in a very straight way). I love smokers.
I have been raised believing that no sin is greater than another. I have a quick temper. I sometimes take my own stress and such, out on other people. That’s wrong. Just like homosexuality is wrong. My sin just as bad as theirs, so who am I to judge them and say their damned? Do I think they’re wrong in what they do? Yeah, I do. Do I think I’m wrong in what I do? Absolutely. Saying something is wrong, is different from judging. Judging is damning. Saying something wrong is being opinionated. Everyone is entitled to their opinions.
So yeah, I don’t believe that gays should be able to marry. Just like I don’t believe that I should let my temper go all teen angst on everyone. One last point: You CHOOSE to control your temper. You also choose to control your sexuality. You aren’t born gay. You’re born with the choice of whether or not to be gay. If you choose to, don’t make other people feel like crap for not supporting you. Do you think that people are okay with me being disagreeable? Absolutely not. Do I alienate people that don’t say, “Hey Holly, it’s totally okay for you to be a jerk to everyone and say rude crap all the time”? Uh, no. Because it’s MY wrong attitude and it shouldn’t be accepted.
