“Now this looks like a job for me so everybody just follow me
‘Cause we need a little controversy,
‘Cause it feels so empty without me”
~ Eminem (Without Me)
Today’s #bloglikecrazy prompt asks us to write about something controversial. I may lose some followers, but I hope not.
LET PEOPLE MARRY WHO THEY WANNA MARRY!
Boys, boys, girls, girls, black, white, yellow, green. Who cares? I am a Christian and I know what people “say” the Bible says but isn’t the most important lesson that we love each other? In a world where it’s difficult to both be alone or find someone you can really be yourself with, why would we impose rules and restrictions on love? We already have enough trials and tribulations during our lifetimes without adding nonsensical clauses on who can be with whom.
I am proud to say I have a boatload of LGBT and interracial couples as friends. Just like yesterday’s post, I would not be the intelligent, caring person I am today without those friends. They are no different than all my other friends, but they have been through more crap and have helped me see what really is important in this life. And quibbling or even disowning friends or family members because of who they love is the biggest waste of time and energy.
You are entitled to your beliefs and thoughts. And I am entitled to mine. I believe the greatest thing we can do in this life is love each other, help each other, and give back. Let’s focus on that and less on who you want to hold hands with for the rest of your life. I’ll hold yours if you hold mine.
Find peace inside.
