I am only going to speak on this once.
Usually, I would steer from this subject. I usually only speak out about Autism awareness. But an article I read this morning really upset me. It suggests that some Christians feel they are being judged for publicly opposing gay marriage.
I’m going to keep this short and it is not an open ended post to spark a debate.
Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs but I do not believe that everyone is entitled to push those beliefs on others in a way that is embarrassing or provocative.
I don’t walk around telling everyone that I am married to a woman. Why should I? I don’t feel the need to broadcast that because it has nothing to do with everyone else. Neither of my parents attended my wedding and although it made me sad that they couldn’t see past their own disagreement to be at my wedding, that was their right.
But I don’t understand why anyone would say that protesting Christians are a hated minority. To me, if you feel the need to publicly protest something, it might be best to first examine why someone else’s marriage impacts your life. Why does my belief that it is who I am impact someone else?
We need to just accept that we are all different. I don’t think it’s awful if you are against homosexuality. You are not me. What I find awful is bullying and judging others because we don’t all agree. We will never all agree. It’s just the way the world is and our differences are what make this world amazing.
Why don’t we just see our differences as a way to learn and grow? God never said it was okay for us to judge did He? My wedding to my wife was my wedding so please kindly keep your beliefs out of it. Our faith should not be easily shaken by someone else’s. We need to own our own decisions and beliefs and accept that not everyone will agree.
Let’s give the gavel back to God, shall we? Let’s just get along.
