doma

In light of the outcome of the doma - defense of marriage act - I have seen some disturbing things surface that leave me to wonder....

Isn't the whole point of Christianity that we all are a family? That we should love thy neighbor? If one is hungry, we are all hungry? The hypocrisy of Christianity is appalling to me. Either you stand for something and believe in it or you don't. Let's make a decision and stick with it.  If you believe in what the bible says, then don't take it merely sentence by sentence, but by what is in the context instead.

When Jesus said that marriage was between a man and a woman, he was responding to a question about divorce (so much for context), not sexuality. And even the Gospels...Well, even though they are gospel to many I love and care about, they are still interpretations of what Jesus said, and did, and meant -- we do not have a single written word directly from Jesus. Let's remember that folks.  Who's business is it anyway who people love and why they love them?

Hope, faith, and love.....and the greatest of these is love.....Why can't we all just love each other?
