Amazingly, I've only had to unfriend one person on Facebook tonight. I don't do it often, and I like to think I'm a pretty tolerant person. But I won't deal with hatred on my own page.
I know some people aren't happy about today's ruling. I get it. The analogies will come out that now we can have plural marriage (what the person on my page had to say about my "rainbowed" profile picture). Or marry dogs. And of course, WWJD? It's a sin! It's a behavior!
Well, I'm pretty sure Jesus would tell you to love those people anyway. Jesus would tell you not to judge those people. Jesus might tell you that we are all made in his image, and this includes EVERYONE, not just you.
I don't know. I'm not Jesus. And pretty glad I'm not. That's probably a lot of pressure there, what with the miracles and the constant people praying at you and all.
Everyone is welcome to their opinion. It's one of the things that our country is built on. If I care about your opinion, I'll read it. If I don't like it, I'll not read it. But I certainly don't expect you to come over to my Facebook page and spew your hatred (and yes, it's hatred IMHO. And on my Facebook page my humble opinion is the only one that matters). If you don't like that, you are welcome to unfriend me. I'm ok with that really. I might miss you. But it's ok. I'll get over it.
My biggest question is, besides the "moral high ground" and the "I don't want to have THAT conversation about THOSE people with MY child", how does this ruling affect you in anyway if you aren't LGBT? Really, as a straight person who is married, and does have gay friends, I'm thrilled for them, but either way, I'd wake up tomorrow and the world would still be turning. Tomorrow, we'll all wake up and the world will still be doing it's thing for everyone. Some of the same people who claim it's time to move to Canada said the same thing in 2012, and here they still are. And the world is still turning, degraded moral compass as some see it and all.
But for my friend's that this directly affects: It matters. They're life is changed. If you don't like gay marriage, don't marry someone of the same sex. It's ok, I won't judge you. That's not my job.
I personally feel that the world will be a better place with more people able to love and marry each other. More love can't hurt, right?
