You don’t understand how much I love you and appreciate your support. You truly cannot comprehend how much I actually love you.
Gay, Straight, Queer, white, black, off-white beige: I love you. I try to, and do , as Christ does (given my, sadly, limited ability).
I do not post what I do in order to self-vindicate my sexuality, or to feel good about myself, or crusade fer’ JeSuuuusS. No. No I don’t.
I post and support LGBTQ Christians because of the Holy Spirit induced urge to vomit my entire phsycal being when I think of the pale, lifeless faces of young boys who couldn’t live with themselves any longer because of their God-given sexuality being an “an abomination”/”unnatural”/”an affront to God”. To see the bloody and scarred faces of a woman in South Africa who was raped for “corrective” purposes. To have your head ring with the envisioned or imagined, yet almost real SHRIEKS and SCREAMS of men bound together to a pole being cooked alive “in the name of Christ” from almost 1,500 years ago.
Those nightmares, those crimes are not of Christ. It is not Love, it is not God.
They are atrocities, they were begun by the lies of evil, ignorant, corrupt men(while, yes, Christ extends His love to them as He did to Saul/St. Paul) in an attempt to consolidate their power and justify their own predjudices using the veil of “Christianity”. The hurt and gut-wrenching pain they commited then, proliferates still today.
To me, I would be criminal to let it go unaddressed. I feel that it’s every Christian’s duty to defend the oppressed and to love them. Especially, if circumstances had been less kind, you’d be just as miserable.
Yes I am Gay. Yes I am Christian. Yes I love you. Yes I love Christ.
NO, homosexuality is NOT A SIN.
I feel that it is my job, in this tiny respect, to let you know that, LGBT kids and adults, God loves you. Straight friends, He loves you too.
And if I don’t change a single Conservative’s mind on here, so be it. If no one shares about what they read on here, so be it. Thats Christ’s job to touch hearts, I’m just a simple servant. No more.
And if I DO, please tell that I may know!
But my faith doesn’t hang in the balance for it.
Thanks for reading =)
