what would jesus do?
i think jesus would love everyone and not put us into categories like gay, white, black, fat, stupid, low class, rich…whatever…i am always struck by the actions of some of the so-called religoius right when you see them proudly holding banners that say “jesus hates fags” or “aids is God’s way of punishing homos” or any number of other innappropriate things for one HUMAN to say to another. i am gay and religious (or at least on that journey). does that mean i don’t stand a chance of going to heaven? does that mean i’m wrong? i contend that we are all God’s children. why would He make anybody be a way that would persecute them the majority of their lives…i know some people think we “chose” this lifestyle…even better, why would we “choose” to live a way that would set us up for ridicule, prejudice and hardship? i have been extremely lucky in that i have a family that could really care less about my sexual orientation and who accepts me AND my relationship. i think that has set the tone for my life BUT i see the vote on proposition 8, amendment 2 and the one in arizona and it makes me sad to see such hate for a portion of the human race. i don’t want to hate those people back. i don’t want to boycott their companies or communities. i think that just perpetuates that hatred. i know somebody has to do something.
so again i ask…what would jesus do?
i don’t think He’d do what’s being done right now…i think He would want to clear the table and start all over again.
