You Know What Makes My Blood Boil?

25 Jan

Ignorance. Ignorance makes my blood boil.

Facebook has a tendency to bring out the worst in people. It saddens me to see people that I once looked up to spitting out hatred without even thinking twice.

Lately the biggest issue I have seen is homophobia. Everyone has the right to believe what they want, but sheesh, find some facts to back up your completely baseless claims.

If a man wants to marry another man or a woman wants to marry another woman WHY DO YOU CARE?! How the hell is it any of your business?! People act like whenever a same sex couple gets married that they personally get a year taken off their own life. Newsflash: Them getting married has absolutely ZERO affect on you… at all… Period.

If a man is on his death bead in the hospital and wants his partner by his side, if a woman wants her partner of 20 years to get life insurance benefits after she dies, if a same sex couple *GHASP* wants to adopt a child so they are loved and aren’t in foster care or in an orphanage IT ISN’T ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS!

You know what really makes my blood boil? People who preach that these same sex couples would make TERRIBLE parents. If you are one of these people I would love to hear how you are higher than God and know what is going on behind the closed doors of same sex houses. No straight people are bad parents? No straight people get divorced? GET REAL!

Spend your energy focusing on something more productive. Fight human trafficking. Fight hunger. Fight domestic violence.

While you are painting your world into a corner I am teaching my children to love everyone no matter what color their skin is, what gender they identify with, who they love or how much money they have. I am even teaching them to love you. Why? Because God said to love thy neighbor and I believe in that.

You’re welcome.

    I agree with what you’ve written 100%. I especially espouse your belief that people could be spending so much more time fighting for better causes as opposed to fighting against gay marriage. Facebook removes the physical presence of people so I think individuals feel more comfortable preaching their ignorant beliefs on it – it’s unfortunate, though I’m glad that you’ve addressed it. Great post!

    There are people who take every word of their ‘God written’ Bible literally. They believe the written word with their heart and soul. I don’t argue with them because they have a right to their opinion. I confess to hoping they have to think it through someday when one of these ‘sins’ hits their personal lives. You hit the nail on the head!
