"Hate" is such a strong word

I just wanted to share this post I came across out there in the interwebs.

So, I' m about to do something very
stupid and possibly be downvoted to
oblivion. I just couldn' t keep quiet
honestly. But if some read this and it
helps them in any way, then it is all I
can hope for.
This crap right here is NOT in any
way a true representation of
those that follow Christ.
Here are rows and rows of people at
a counter protest I attended. The
WBC showed up to protest a
funeral, but had no where to stand
legally due to all the people there.
Still, they pushed out some of their
poor young kids of the car and had
them try. It was despicable.
new one created the
this
tts,
so that man could tight the dinosaurs
This isn' twho I am.
I find science
fascinating and grew
up watching both
ill Bill Nye and the
l' Magic School bus.
I studied abroad in both Israel and Greece
in 2011, learning some aramaic and
koine greek in order to understand my
faith and read the Bible as it was written.
To my LGBT friends, when someone
who claims they' re a Christian
bothers you and ha wrasses you
saying you' re going to Hell, keep this
verse in mind.
Nell attension
There are s' cuttings the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who more out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the
community.
I guess what I' m getting at is stay strong
and know that not all of us are awful.

really... any sane person knows that a normal chistian person isn't a lunatic. Same goes for muslims ( yeah, america, they're not terrorists all of them). Its only narrow minded people who cant see the diffrence...

I don't care if people are gay or not.

But parading in the most revealing/disgusting outfits "to show your gay pride", is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
How will this help your cause? By showing other people your just some kind of freak, they'll suddenly think that being gay is ok? Where is the logic here? Focussing on the fact that you're different and probably unfit to be a member of society, helps you how?

If you want to do a parade (which I already think is weird, but that's just me), how about this:
You show caring gay parents, in normal clothing walking around with their family or children. Show the rest of the world you're just as normal as they are. That you too, are a hard-working family man.
People will accept you a lot easier.

If you mean those feminists who run around topless protesting, I think that's the dumbest **** ever.

I just don't get the point. You're just enforcing the stereotype that you're a walking pair of tits, + I get to see them for free.

I'm christian. As such, I do not approve of homosexuality.

However, I couldn't hate homosexuals because of that, because we Christians are supposed to hate the sin but love the sinners. That's what many so-called Christians forget.

I have gay friends, as well as I have friends who lie, friends who steal, and so on.

Real christians hate the sin, but love the sinners.

As an Atheist, I would like to tell you that I'm not the kind of asshole that only exists to tell you that you're wrong for believing what you believe in. Keep doing what you're doing and spread the truth to those less fortunate and less intelligent than people like us. Any Christian, Atheist, or whatever your religion may be should do so as well. You chill bros keep being chill. I'll rest easy tonight knowing that all is not lost.

Bro. I'm gay; my boyfriend's gay, and my family is mega orthodox christian.

But they don't give a **** what I do in the privacy of my bedroom.

There are two kinds of people in this world.
People like myself, and my family, who keep their beliefs to themselves, and accept others for who they are.

And disgusting derelict douchebags who'd much rather ruin their grouping by spouting garbage about some long lost ideal.

People, are the same no matter where you go, and this is true for both sides of the fence.

There's nothing wrong with pride. But when pride turns to hate, there lays the problem. I don't go to pride rallies; in my state, it is legal for us to wed.

Ultimately, in terms of genetics or opinion, there is no wrong. There is only wrong in your actions.

You know anyone who uses the phrase "thumbed down to oblivion" is about to preach a VERY popular opinion on this website and act like it's taboo.

Yeah, I'm Christian too, and could only agree more.
However, I am Baptist Christian. I know my religion well. I've been a Baptist all my life.

But what people don't know, and need to understand and realize is that the Westboro Baptist Church? They're not Baptist at all. They're a bunch of evil, hyper-Calvinist pigs that take the name of Baptist's and make us all look awful, and hateful towards anyone who doesn't believe the same as us.

We're not like that at all though! I'm Baptist. Half of my friends are Gay/ Lesbian. I love them to death, and I support them. I don't say awful things to them. Why? Because I know God has a plan for everyone, we're supposed to treat people the way we'd like to be treated, and who am I to sit and judge these wonderful friends of mine when I am in no position to do so, as a sinner myself?

That is what Southern Baptist Christians believe, and it's what we teach. We teach love and kindness, and most of all, patience.

So just remember. Those douche canoes that piss everyone off to no avail? They aren't Baptist Christian. True Christians like myself, and my family are loving, and accepting, and actually follow what God tells us to do in the Bible.
That's all we do. We strive to walk with God, follow his teachings the best we can, and treat everyone with love, and respect.

So just remember, Westboro is a bunch of disgusting, awful, and hateful human beings who give Christians a bad name. ^^

Thumb down if need be, but I am of the mindset that you can be gay and proud of it...but you don't have to walk around at a pride parade wearing a thong and sucking on a dick-shaped lollipop with dildos strapped to your shoulders.
I think in all honesty it's kind of rude, you're basically trying to make others uncomfortable by flaunting your ass and love for dick in people's faces. I can respect a gay couple dressed in tuxedos holding hands as they walk during the parade. They can even kiss, doesn't bother me at all.

inb4 Someone calls me homophobic; I actually have several friends who are gay, my roommate is gay as well and I have no problem with gay people in general. (In fact, they're easier to get along with sometimes.) I just think it kind of defeats the purpose of showing that gay people are normal, respectable human beings when you have one jackass with "I love cock" written across his chest and wearing assless chaps.

although I have to say that while I support gay people's rights 250%, I don't support anyone's right to walk around in public in all leather with crotchless pants and a leash around their neck. I'm not gonna tell you not to, I'm just saying I am trying to go to 7-11 to get a slushie, and I don't want to accidentally have it teabagged by a free set of danglers because I didn't know there was a parade that day.

I got called a homophobe today because, after expressing complete neutrality towards gay marriage, I said I hated lohanthony. Do you all know this kid? He's honestly almost the definition of what I do not support in gay people.

I know not entirely related, I just needed a place to rage. TWERK TUTORIAL BY TEENAGE BOY!

meh but the bible promotes slavery and hatred of gays. The WBC is following the bible 100%, it's people like you who "pick and choose" what they want to believe. Technically, THEY are the real Christians. You are a Christian Agnostic.
User avatar #168 to #159 - neoexdeath (12/05/2013) [-]
Most sane Christians realize that the specific rules intended to keep desert people alive and not trying to kill each other don't really apply to modern society. Slavery was pretty much THE way of punishing criminals back then, has canning them in nonproductive prisons was just not viable This also applies to Homosexuality. The reason it was a big deal? Most tribes and villages back then weren't exactly huge, and if a bunch of people start pounding dudes, it kills your fertility rate and eventually the society can'/t sustain itself. Nowadays, its not such a much . In other words, the basic values and positive ideals of the bible are carried by most Christians, but they realize that the rules Jesus laid down there where never meant to apply in full to everybody everywhere forever.

So don't judge the Middle East or Islam on the actions of the few either.

All of my Islamic friends are very rational, I have never met( out of the hundreds in my community) a Muslim that like to identify with the extremist in their group.

I'm catholic, and i'm against homosexual marriage. I think partners in a civil union deserve the same rights as a married couple, but it shouldn't be defined as a marriage. I have nothing against homosexuals, I just don't think it should be defined as marriage

if you were to actually read the bible, then you'd realise that the WBC asshats are actually following christianity more closely than the moderate mass population.

not true. I saw one of them saying "God hates the world" (and teaching their little daughter to say it too), which directly contradicts one of the most recognizable verses, John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, for whoever believes in Him will have eternal life."
