HEY! Please stop scrolling and listen. This is not what you are thinking, please read this till the end, even if you believe in this things or not, please.
Today in the Church the father said: “For those who are against gay couples adopting kids, think about it in this way; maybe, God created gay people to adopt and love those kids who were abandoned by those heterosexual parents who can’t give them the life they deserve or won’t give them the love they need. Everyone is in this world with a purpose made by God, so I just can’t believe in those people who claim that God will send gay people to hell. No, that’s not right. Every person who does good in this life deserve to go to heaven when the time comes, no matter your skin color, your nationality or your sexuality. Gay brother, lesbian sister, trans cousin, straight son… God loves you no matter what so please, live your life the way you want, be happy and strong but, please, please be a good person…”
After that, the Church were filled with an uncomfortable silence, and then, at the bottom of the church, a straight couple of elders stood up and started to applause, and then I stood up, and then the majority of the audience started to applause by what the father said.
I, as a straight-cis-girl, felt so happy and proud. You don’t know how painful is for me to hear in the Church community over and over again how “sinful” LGBT people is, or how much they “deserve to die” when it’s not like that. They are just humans just like me and you, who deserve to have our same rights, the freedom of love whoever they want. Hating someone just becase they are different from you is NEVER okay. Everyone deserves respect so please, be respectful as much as you can. You don’t know how much your words can hurt the others.
I don’t care if nobody read this, I don’t care what people have to say about me. I support you. I don’t care who you are or who you love; if you are a good person you deserve the best of this world. Please be happy and strong. Being gay, or lesbian, or bisexual or the fuck you are IS NOT sinful. If you believe in God please remember that God loves you and you are free to marry whoever you want, as long as you love them the way they love you.
Okay, keep scrolling. Thank you for your time and I’m sorry for my bad english. Just for your interest, this happened in a Latin Country :). (I don’t want hate so I won’t say where I’m living, sorry :c).
