It's sad that only during great tragedy do the world stand together, but every other day, people don't care. How people are acting during this tragedy in Paris and how they were during 9/11, that is how we should be each and every day, united and standing tall, not divided and falling. A tragedy should not be the only thing that brings us together, we should be together each and every day.
I'm a Christian and I believe in staying true to God's Word. With that being said, because of my beliefs, I don't agree to gay marriage, but I don't hate the gays and I don't condemn them. I do though, still love them with all my heart and I still treat them with respect. Because of what I believe in, I've been ridiculed by the gay community and their supporters. They threatened me, insult me and mock me because of my beliefs. Yet I showed no hate, only love yet they call me a bigot because of what I believe in. I've accepted the gays even though I don't agree to how they live their life. Yet the gays and their supporters won't accept me for what I believe in. They go on mocking and insulting me, it's as if they're trying to force themselves onto me. It's as if they would only stop ridiculing me, if I were to do away with my beliefs and accept them 100%.
The definition of 'bigot' is this,
"A person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions."
Who's the true bigot here? Myself, for not agreeing to gay marriage because of my beliefs, even though I accept them for who they are and still love them, or the gays and their supporters who ridicule me and threaten me because of my beliefs and won't accept me for who I am based on my faith and beliefs? Who is the true bigot here?
Only God can judge the homosexuals, not man. I've learned to accept them, even though I may not agree to how they live their life. I still treat them the same with respect and love. No one ever on earth will be accepted 100% by anyone, there will always be flaws in someone that someone else might not like. Just because you don’t like something about a person, doesn’t mean you hate them. Like I've said many times before, I don't hate no one. Not once in my life had I ever shown hate towards anyone.
