I remember reading the entire court case (I actually absolutely enjoy doing even though I hate reading) for Snyder v. Westboro church- where some church members held up signs saying things like God hates gays and His death was God’s way of punishing American and a whole bunch of other absurd things. Also remember when last week a christian co-worker said he hated gay people. I went on the church’s website and what they preach in the name of God has nothing to do with the God that I serve. I think it’s AMAZING that people that claim to follow the life and teachings of Christ can have so much hatred in their heart towards a fellow human. I do not care what bible you read or who you bend your knees to. God doesn’t hate them, He hates sin. God doesn’t hate liars, He hates lies. So who are you to stand there claiming you’re holy and perfect yet you didn’t read the part of the bible that said do not judge (especially when you know your hands are not clean), or the one that said love your neighbor as you would love yourself, maybe you didn’t read when Jesus said that whatever you neglected to do to your fellow humans you neglected to do to Him.
Being a christian doesn’t make you or me the judge of the world and the person with all the answers. A lot of people are getting turned away from christianity because of things like this and because of the hypocrisy and arrogance of christians and i’m sure that’s not how God intended it.
Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.
