I am not often into shaming people but I love it when Anti-gay pastors and politicians get caught in hypocrisy (Especially pants down with their pool boys)
“Do you mind if I share my story with you? This will a 2-part message. I’m born and raised in a Christian church of which my father is the pastor. When I was about 9 I realized that i was in love with a boy. A lot happened after that. I hated myself for a long time, and had attempted suicide for being something I had been raised to know is wrong. I’m glad I now know that God loves me for who I am and that has given me hope. I eventually come out to my best friends which I had known my whole life and my father. They didn’t give reactions as bad as I feared but over time I realized that our relationships just weren’t the same– they’d all become distant from me– like they didn’t condone me but they didn’t outright condemn me either. It’s this way with all the people I’ve come out to and I’ve even lost a few close friends… Was coming out a mistake? I just feel like (besides God) there’s no one I can trust and I feel alone. P.s. I’m sorry for the long message and for the religiousness.”
Of course I don’t mind, it is my pleasure to help you! I may be an Atheist, but I will say this: If there was a god, any god at all… he would not shun you for loving a person of the same sex, I think he would have a little more to worry about than your bedroom habits. Now, as for your father, in all honesty, as much as it may hurt, you can’t let his disapproval hurt you, use it as motivation to prove that you are much more than just a Gay person. He does not control your life, remember that. No, coming out was not a mistake, it was a bold, courageous step you took towards happiness and for that, I am proud of you. Surround yourself with people who care and who see past your sexuality. Most of all… love yourself. Take care my friend and remember… YOU… that is what your life is about — your dreams, your happiness.
I don’t know about you guys, but when I watched my President announce that he supports LGBT marriages, I shed a tear and it will forever go down as a highlight in my life.
