On Gay Marriage



They rationalized slavery by quoting the Bible.

They rationalized not allowing women to vote or own property by quoting the Bible.

They rationalized segregation by quoting the Bible.

What do they all  have in common?

The devil can quote scripture for his own ends.  I can remain conservative and Christian and NOT have hate and injustice in my heart.

They will know we are Christian by our love...not our hate.

  2. I want to share this too! Would your friend mind? I'd actually like to have it put on a t-shirt and go walk into my former workplace (a Christian ministry) wearing it! It was a place full of racism and hate. (Not everyone there, but the majority).

  3. You rock! True love does not come with a list of "exceptions for just a few". Too often "christianity" applies to those who feel they meet a certain set of requirements. The greatest gift we can give is grace and it should be given with exception.....
