Just wanna make this clear first. I am not talking about every single person in the world, so do not come for me in the comments talking about "generalizing". IF it applies to you, then I am obviously talking to you and about you.
There are some heterosexual and deeply religious individuals who are making a big deal about gay tolerance or...LGBTQP (Q: questioning, P: pansexual) tolerance in the media and in politics. These people believe that gay tolerance is being force fed to them. They equate tolerance with acceptance, which i guess is something they don't particularly care for.
I was raised into Christianity. As I got older, and started to really think for myself i realized that I am not straight or heterosexual and that i no longer agree with all of the Christian views. It was hard fro me to transition from the person my family wanted me to be to the person i am.
During my journey to self-discovery and self-love, I had a reawakening to the world around me and so many things are different now. One truth that i have learned is that times have definitely changed. Not for the better, not for the worst. And my generation has a completely different outlook compared to the previous generations. There has always been a Millennial vs Boomer struggle. It's nothing new. But why do we continue this cycle? Our parents fight with us on worldviews just as they fought with their own parents about the same or similar topics. Why don't we just agree to disagree?
Specifically about gay tolerance.
To those who apply...I believe you are all hypocritical bigots who refuse to see anything outside of your own bubble. Why are you acting like being anything outside of heterosexual is worst thing since Hitler? Whether being gay or not is "natural", it is natural to sin. Because according to the bible, we are born sinners. And no sin is greater than the other.
The bible was made up by men. GUYS, who just so happen to be more homophobic than women in general. All men. All human. Who have human flaws, human mindsets, and human biases. It hadn't occurred to you that maybe some homophobic man wrote in the 'abomination' part of the texts? According to the bible, there were plenty of hateful and spiteful people who were in power, and it had not ONCE came across your mind that one of them might have had some kind of influence about the wording of the bible?
If you're gonna hold up one thing from the bible, you need to treat every single word you see the exact same way. Don't go cherry picking the parts you most agree with, because I bet most of you eat shellfish and wear freaking mixed cloth...which are also "sins".
You see plenty of sin in the media. You see it every single show, but you only harp about the gay acceptance parts? Any channel you switch over to, you WILL find SOMETHING ungodly whether that be drugs, adultery, lying, or bad ass kids being disrespectful to their parents. Yet none of you are protesting about those things. So what is the big deal seeing to guys kiss?
Suicide is supposed to be the unforgivable sin because you can't repent afterwards...yet you see plenty of it real and fake everywhere...and being gay is the sin you want to focus on?
Most religious people i know have premarital sex. They watch porn. They don't cover their eyes to the sex scenes of their favorite shows. And I bet you all do the same as well. But all of a sudden, you might see a show focusing on the LGBT community, and you wanna cause a riot.
You go on, and on, and on about same sex marriage, yet you're quick to want to file a divorce. And divorce is supposed to be a sin, but there aren't any big protest about that.
If you're gonna fight one thing, fight it all. Live the nun lifestyle that you shove down everyone else's throats. People tolerate YOU, so be courteous and tolerate the world around you because as long as you hold up your own beliefs, none of that secular stuff is going to affect you or your livelihood.
And if you are going to continue to be a hypocrite, just do it in silence and let the rest of the world live in peace. You can bitch about it to God once you're in heaven and the rest of us are in hell.
