When we as an individual or a group of people join together to make an accusation or generalization about the member or members of another person or group of people, and view them all to be just alike, we are always wrong in our assumption, generalities, and judgements. There are never any exceptions to that truth, as we are the person or persons in error, when we do behave in the same manner. (See the post: “When Truth Speaks Over Lies” previously written in this blog)
So why do we do it? And why is it the Church groups of America, often are the first to do it? What is going on in the name of Jesus or God in regards to the Gay Community is and needs to be recognized as the disgrace and shame that it is, and be stopped as does the hate and lies, that divide us as a Democracy. I am going to pick on religion until the divide in America stops, because I know as you all know, a great deal of the views in America that divide us are coming from the different religious communities,inter-net sites,blogs, bullies, social media,various Churches,right of politics,the pulpits,Fox News, The Christian broadcasting Network, from the Church presses, and the list goes on.
Regardless of the right-wing denial, and what we hear, the hate in America, is not being generated by liberals,Atheist,Gays, or non-Church attending people in America. We all know that for certain. There have been plenty of times that the liberals and the right-wing were at war,but this time it is the Christians, after their own perceived right to judge and to infringe, on the Constitutional rights of equality for all Americans as well as all of our right to choose. God help us before they destroy Democracy and our freedom to choose for all of us,permanently.
For the sake, of a nine-year old little girl in Tucson, who had such high hopes for Democracy,the recent suicides of our young people, as well as all of our own children who are alive and look to us for their protection, we need to join together and show empathy and compassion for all Americans, including our President, Barack OBama, who inherited an extremely difficult task. Our religious views and beliefs belong between us and our Redeemer and stop at the Church doors. None of us, have a right to judge or deny, another or to infringe on their rights and choices,especially when we all are of a different race,creed,gender,religious view,or color, either the right to succeed or to fail.
To do so or to think differently from that and to certainly judge, destroys the very fiber of both civilization and Democracy. We know that for certain,as well. Law was ordained to both govern rights and freedoms in our Constitution,and never was it the right of religion to ever think it did have the power or was it ever, the intent of the writers of the Constitution to give that power to religion. Much less, have religion attempt to take the power from government which is “We the People” or to deny government or us, the same power of law. I can only pray that you who are doing it, stop the spread of the lies and hate now,before you do wake up and realize that you are naively involved in an immoral power struggle, and the enemy is YOU.
