Nothing is by me.
People who object to homosexuality can object away, but I will not bother with replying to you.
The Religious Right keeps saying gay-rights activists are redefining marriage:
"Changing the definition of marriage would undermine the very nature that gives marriage its unique status in society. Ultimately, forcing marriage to mean all things will force marriage to mean nothing at all. (The Heritage Foundation) "
The same group of people also goes on about how God loves gay people:
"God loves homosexuals. He loves them just as he loves every other human on the planet.
People living a homosexual lifestyle are sinners like the rest of us and, like the rest of us, they are people created by God and loved by God. As such, we are called to love in whatever sinful state we happen to find them. "
I say this to the religious people who oppose marriage equality:
You think were redefining marriage?
How can you accuse us of that when youve done something far worse?
You redefined love.
Love the sinner, hate the sin? Please
For you, love means making sure gay people cannot adopt a child who needs a home.
For you, love means stripping away the marital status of gay couples who were legally married in California before Proposition 8 took effect.
For you, love means accepting someone only if they never act on their sexuality.
For you, love means putting our country at risk if gay people in our military dare mention they are in a same-sex relationship.
For you, love means allowing doctors to refuse patients who need their help because the patients are gay.
For you, love means preventing homosexuals from serving in leadership positions for organizations like the Boy Scouts because you oppose their sexual orientation.
For you, love means telling someone else what they can and cannot do in the privacy of their bedroom.
For you, love means removing your children from school for a day so they cant witness other students taking a stand for LGBT rights.
I know weve heard the rebuttal to this notion of redefining marriage marriage has been redefined a countless number of times. From a property arrangement to a love marriage to interracial marriage, etc. The definition of marriage has never been static.
But how dare Christians make that accusation: Youre redefining marriage.
They say it like weve done something wrong.
How dare you belittle us for trying to promote equality and marriage and civil rights?
Youre Christians. Arent those values youre supposed to endorse?
We are not trying to change how your church operates or how you practice your faith. Were not telling you how to live your life. Were not forcing you to adopt our beliefs.
Who is showing more love here?
