I’m gonna be short about this…but I just wanted to write something small about something that has made me very sad in the past few weeks…
The “yes” vote made me so sad….that I think about it at least once a day. …. I’m not going to get deep into this…..I’m not going to try and explain why I feel the way I do…and I don’t feel like it’s necessary for anyone to try and make me feel guilty or question my faith. All I will say is that God knows my heart and he holds me accountable.
So, this is really personal to me on a lot of levels. I know that what I will say is something that some people in my extended family may hold against me, but I don’t really care.
All I can think about are all the people who finally got to be married….and now their marriage is considered “void.” Am I right about that???? I’m not sure…but I felt heartbroken in so many ways thinking about this.
Look…I’ve taken government classes…I’m not entirely ignorant. And now I am glad Texas required all those gov classes, because I have pretty good understanding of what is constitutional and what is unconstitutional. Denying marriage to gay and lesbian couples? Definitely unconstitutional.
I really do believe in separation of church and state…its definitely a reason why our country is so great! I realize that religion played the factor in the “yes” vote, of course, but I guess what I don’t understand is all the hatred I have felt coming from these Christians! All the judgmental comments….the boycotting….
that’s not something I want to teach my son…that we should love everyone, unless their gay or lesbian and in that case we should cast them aside and treat them less than human! Didn’t God call on us to show HIS love to everyone??
In my last bible study, we talked about how God wants us to live peacefully with our neighbors, and to love them…not to pretend to love them, but really love them. Thats my goal…thats my plan in life…the only thing in my life that is concrete!
