I’m sick of homophobia. Frankly, I think it’s tired, outdated and a waste of time.
What someone does in (or out of) the bedroom is honestly nobody’s business. It does not make them a sinner; it does not make them dirty; it makes them human, sexual and amazing. And, as long as they are keeping their actions between consenting adults, who are we to judge? That’s not our job…that’s the big-guy-upstairs job and from what I hear, he doesn’t want anyone stealing it, so we all need to cut it out.
However, since we are humans and we do need to assess one another, a person’s character should be judged on decency and decency alone.
The Human Decency Code:
- Are they kind? Yes or No
- Do they play fair? Yes or No
- Do they share their good fortunes with the less fortunate? Yes or No
- Are they, in general, an overall a good human being? Yes or No
That’s it. Nothing else really matters. Not who they’ve slept with or who they want to sleep with, not which religion they follow, not which side of the bed they sleep on and absolutely not what colour their skin is. It really is, none of anyone’s business!
What frustrates me, is that in today’s society many people attribute their Gaytred to God because someone, a long time ago, interpreted the Bible as such that God does not accept homosexuality; that it’s a sin and that he WILL punish you if you engage in such activities. Many Gayters will validate their hatred and throw the Bible in your face and say that it’s ‘wrong’ and ‘indecent’ and say that ‘it has been written’. What’s that all about?
But, who wrote the Bible? Everyone knows, it wasn’t God’s hand that wrote those words. It wasn’t God who translated it from this language to that language and brought in their own human interpretations. It was man. And man is faulted with ‘human error’ all the time.
I’m pretty sure that neither God nor Jesus taught hatred. Humans did.
We teach our children that certain human orientations are wrong and dirty. We teach our children that there is only ‘one’ way. But is that true? Who are we to say what belief is wrong and what belief is right? I’m pretty sure that as long as people are abiding by the ‘human decency code’ that in general, they are doing just fine.
So, if God is love and God made us all (including the Gays and non-Christians) in his image, wouldn’t that mean that He may be a little gay too? Gay does mean happy after all.
I mean, if God didn’t want anyone to be gay, then why did he make some of us this way? Why did he make some girls drawn to girls, some boys drawn to boys and some drawn to everyone?
