I read this on Facebook.
Am I homophobic? (unreasonable fear of homosexuals ) NO!
Do I agree with homosexuality? No
Why? Because The Bible says that it is a sin - and as such - these people are doomed to spend eternity in hell for this decision.
What do I do? I welcome homosexuals to attend church with me - they will not find themselves in a hostile environment. I welcome their friendship.
Why would I do that? I love them so much that I want to get to know them and for them to know me. Before I say anything about their lifestyle I want them to know who I am - for my words to mean something - for my actions to have the opportunity to prove what I say.
Will I eat more chicken today at Chick- Fil- A? Yes.
Why? Because I believe that any person in this country has the right to say that they are a homosexual and that any person in the country has the right to disagree with that statement. I’m not eating chicken to send a message to the homosexual community that I hate them - I am sending a message that I will not tolerate someone rights being trampled on.
Now some would say that Dan Cathey’s statements trample on homosexual rights. Really? There are radical Islamists who say I am an infidel and should die - but I don’t see anyone complaining about that. There are high ranking government officials who say that religion is a plague on America - but I don’t see anyone running them off.
When we, as a country, decide that it’s wrong to disagree with someone else, that’s the moment that liberty ceases to exist. Is this a political statement? I guess so.
So let me make a spiritual statement. Jesus loves you! Let me prove it to you!
