In my household, being gay was, and is, nog big deal. When my brother came out, we hugged him, said we loved him, and that was that… There are people who’ve said that I’m being brave for being openly supportive of gay marriage, gay adoption. With all due respect, I humbly dissent. I’m not being brave. I’m being a decent human being. Love is a human experience, not a political statement.

I just need to let this out and Tumblr is a good place to do so.

I am a Christian and have been going to church my entire life. I was even in the baptist church for the first few years of my life. Both of my families were raised Christians, just like me. So when I meet new people and I tell them that I’m a Christian, they assume that I’m against gay rights, transphobic, anti-feminist, and much more.

No. In fact, I’m completely opposite of all of those. I understand that ‘homosexuality’ is said to be a sin, but I believe that it’s not a choice and that’s who you are. I don’t understand why God say that it’s a sin, if he made you that way. We may never know. But I do know that my step-brother and my cousin were also raised Christians and they recently came out of the closet this past year. Does that mean they are going to hell? No. They have accepted Jesus in their hearts. And I think they are one of the most bravest people I’ve ever met.

Many Christians say that women should not have careers and that they need a man to take care of themselves. Ok, why is it SO bad for me to take care of myself? I don’t need some dude to walk into my life and if we decided to get married, then I can leave home and start my life there. Not only that, I don’t want to spend the rest of my life cleaning, cooking, and staying at home. I want to pursue a career in directing, producing, and possibly acting. But because of what the Bible says, I can’t do what I want and I watch men do the exact same thing? I don’t think so.

I am a strong believer in Christ and I do believe in heaven. But to get to heaven, I don’t have to do what the Bible exactly says to do.

When I meet a gay person, I have to distinguish between their being gay and being part of a lobby. If they accept the Lord and have goodwill, who am I to judge them? They shouldn’t be marginalized. The tendency [to homosexuality] is not the problem…they’re our brothers.

Rebecca Sugar Supports Homosexuality?

(Warning! My oppinions :)

Side note: It may look like it’s sarcasm, but it’s not, I myself support homosexuality :)

—————————————————————————————————————-

Everyone of us loves Ruby x Sapphire, and yet, they both have a female gender pronoun. If they both have a FEMALE gender pronoun, then there is a hint that Rebecca Sugar may support homosexuality. It just shows that she does, and the fact that Steven Universe is a tv show for kids, Rebecca is trying to show that homosexuality is ok. 

This makes me so happy right now, someone is standing up for all the homophobes in this world showing that homosexuality is in fact a good thing.

THANK YOU SO MUCH REBECCA! :D YOU GO!

I was at an army camp the other day for school and one of the army officers was trying to get us to move or something so he shouted “LAST ONE OUT OF HERE IS A GAY BOY” and literally nobody moved. Not one single person. We just stood in front of him and gave him the “dude-that’s-not-cool” glare. I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud of my school.

protect bisexuals

- protect bisexual boys
- protect bisexual girls
- protect transgender bisexuals
- protect nonbinary bisexuals
- protect bisexual people in the closet
- protect bisexual people who have never had a homosexual relationship
- protect bisexual people who have never had a heterosexual relationship
- protect bisexuals who have a preference for men
- protect bisexuals who have a preference for women
- protect bisexuals who have a different romantic preference than their sexual one
- protect bi-curious people

Remember bisexuals are not/have no
- “straight-passing privilege”
- greedy
- promiscuous 
- selfish
- confused
- secretly straight
- secretly gay
- attention-seeking
- no place in the LGBTQ+ community
- always up for a threesome

Because bisexual people have just as much right to have their sexual identity both identified and respected as anyone does. 

In homeroom

Some girl- “I’m not doing that day of silence thing. Why should they get a whole day dedicated to them just because they’re gay?”

Other girl- “I know, right? Can we get a day of silence for being straight?”

Listen here.

-Straight people do not get killed because of their sexuality. -Straight people are not arrested because of their sexuality. -Straight people are not denied marriage to their true love. -Straight people are not bullied to the point of suicide because of their sexuality. -Straight people are not called names every day by bigots. -Straight people are not kicked out of schools for their sexuality. -Straight people are not disowned by their own families for their sexuality. -Straight people are not thrown out of public places and even churches for their sexuality.

-Straight people do not NEED a damn day of silence.

This is about the LGBT community. Let’s keep it that way.

If you think that you are bisexual, but then later realise you are gay, that is ok.


Sexuality can be confusing, especially when living in a hetero-normative world/


But don’t use your experience to invalidate people who are sure they are bisexual.

Homosexuality is not a Sin

Homosexuality and the Bible

    Homosexuality has become a hot topic all over the world recently. Whether it be small things, like the general hate or mocking that some people feel towards them, or larger things, like Russia’s country wide ban on all homosexuals. Though, it seems that when the topic of homosexuals comes up, another topic is soon to show its face as well. This other topic being Christianity and how we are supposed to respond to the ever growing topic that is homosexuality. While most Christians will fight homosexuality, saying that it is wrong and a sin against the Lord, though does the text really say these things? Does the Bible really teach the hate that people try and put on homosexuals as a whole? Are there really verses that say homosexuality is bad, or is it all one big misconception?

1. The word “Homosexuality” did not exist

Christians love to play 1 Corinthians 6:9 which says that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God; the wicked include murders and “Homosexual offenders”. Seems pretty clear right? Though, how on earth did they write homosexual in that verse, when there was no word that meant gay or homosexual at the time? Did they create the word right on the spot? No, in fact, the word homosexual was not even added to the bible until 1987. Homosexual took the place of “abusers of themselves with mankind” which relates to both women and men, as mankind was representative of all back them. So it does not in any way say that homosexuality is a sin in that passage.

2. Leviticus 18:22 is misused

Leviticus 18:22 which says, “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable” may be one of the most used, if not the most, verses in the bible to fight homosexuality. Though, when read carefully, this also does not fight being homosexual. It is simply stating to not treat those relations as the same thing. For example, if I use the same wording as this verse and say, “Do not have dinner with a friend as you would with the pope; that is detestable.” Now that last phrase did not say, never have dinner with a friend, it simply said, treat the two scenarios differently. Thus the first one is not saying, don’t have sex with men, its saying don’t treat it the same.

3. The main message in the bible is love

It’s no secret that the Bible’s main message is the love that God and Jesus had for us. It goes through and explains the pain and suffering they went through just for us to be free from sin. This though is supported many times in the bible, like in Mark 12:31 or Romans 13:10. They both describe how important love has over everything else, and even go so far as saying that loving your neighbor is fulfilling the law and that no commandment is greater than this. So after all this talk about love, why would the bible then try and cancel out some love? Why would the bible say “Love thy neighbor” and then say “but don’t love him, cause that’s a sin.”

4. Homosexuality being a sin contradicts the bible

Addressing an earlier point if the bible says “Love thy neighbor” and then says “But no homosexual love” it is technically contradicting itself. Which is something the bible is supposedly not able to do, there are to be no contradictions in the bible. So then how do these two very different messages exist in the same book? The only two explanations are that the bible did contradict itself, thus making all its teaching invalid or that one of these two things are not what they seem. More than likely, homosexuality being a sin, is not actually true and the verses saying that are not what they seem.

5. If homosexuals go to hell, then we ALL go to hell

If you are one to believe that homosexuals do not go to heaven, then you must also believe that no one has ever nor will ever go to heaven, as Jesus died for ALL sins. Not just some sins for some people, but all sins committed by everyone to ever live. Now if we go back to 1 Corinthians 6:9 which says the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God, and then “homosexuality” is mentioned, and you use that as your proof, then you must also be aware of all the other people who are considered wicked. “Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men, nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were.” Also, the very next verse reads, “But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” So even if you believe that homosexuality is a sin, you can’t think that they go to hell.

Wouldn’t god make sure that there was no mistranslation?

Contrary to popular belief, the bible can be twisted and misinterpreted as much as people would like. One of the strongest evidence for this is the fact that Christianity has over 20 divisions of people who believe different things, yet all read what they claim to be the “same” bible. So mistranslation, like the homosexuality mistranslation could easily make its way into the bible somewhere across the line. In fact, that one made its way in, in 1987. So unless you can read Hebrew, you may be reading the wrong thing.

    How else could the word homosexuality get into the bible?

When translating certain words across many different languages one word or phrase can change in a dramatic way. For instant, during WWII we Japan sent over a message about their surrender that was supposed to say, “we’re thinking about it” but one Japanese word meant two totally separate things and was translated to “we are intentionally ignoring you” and that cause an atomic bomb to be dropped on a nation. So when something is translated across multiple languages, it is very easy for something totally false and nonexistent to sneak in, despite the fact that there is no connection between the two.

    In conclusion, homosexuality is not, in fact, and sin in anyway. The bible, when looked at closely, does not say that homosexuality is a sin nor does it intend to do so. The miss-interpretation that being a homosexual is an abomination against God is just that, a miss-interpretation. God loves all his children whole heartedly, and is happy with the love that you can provide for yourself and others.
