Yeaaaaaaaah that kinda comes off wrong there bud. I personally, havnt harmed anyone...that i know of.
It was simply an example of how her statement (of why would God make gays for people to hate them) did not hold up. because Most people who believe in God knows he faces us with challenges every day to better our future. It is in NO WAY comparing the two. It was showing how that could be said about a lot of things. I understand it came off wrong. But the logic that god would not put gays on earth for people to dislike them doesnt hold up when he also faces us with far greater challenges all the time. I hope you understand what I was trying to say.

When did I group them in the same category? You referred that God wouldn't make gays if he wanted us to hate them. That is referring to the scenario that God puts us on this Earth to live an always happy life and not fight through any hardship or adversity. I simply made a separate example and I have been completely respectful of both sides on this issue. You have no right to tell me what i should and should not be ashamed of because you have no clue what kind of person I am or how much harder I had to work than most others to get where I am today. This is a perfect example of immaturity when someone can't handle that the other side is not going to change their stance on an emotional issue even though that person is willing to let out his inner feelings towards the subject when he knows he will probably be bashed.
What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? May it never be! For he said to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I caused you to be raised up, that I might show in you my power, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” So then, he has mercy on whom he desires, and he hardens whom he desires. You will say then to me, “Why does he still find fault? For who withstands his will?” But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed ask him who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?” Or hasn’t the potter a right over the clay, from the same lump to make one part a vessel for honor, and another for dishonor? What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath made for destruction, and that he might make known the riches of his glory on vessels of mercy, which he prepared beforehand for glory, us, whom he also called, not from the Jews only, but also from the Gentiles? (Romans 9:14-24 WEB)

This is why I love everyone, we should stop trying to find fault. And show kindness.

As an Ordained Minister, I can say without any question that discrimination of ANY kind towards other human beings is certainly NOT what Jesus tried to teach us. The Bible has more finger-shaking at fornication and adultery that any reference to homosexuality. When are we truly going to achieve equal rights for ALL PEOPLE? Not to mention, I hate Chick-fil-A food.
