I believe in and try to live by the principles of the Bible. But I also try to make morally fair & just decisions. Mankind evolves, and gets wiser as time passes and we learn more about our human race.
The Bible states that the Sabbath shall be sacred and no one should work on Sunday.
That statement is constantly broken, as millions of people work their regular jobs on Sundays.
Does that make it wrong? Morally, I don’t think so. No one is hurting anyone else or committing a terrible crime towards mankind or society. This is just one, simple example of how our society commonly doesn’t follow the Bible word for word.
Think about how crazy it was that at one time in America’s history, African-Americans, black people were considered 3/5 of a person. Looking at it now, that is outrageous. No one can help or change where they were born in the world or what color their skin is. Should they be treating as a fraction of a person? No, I personally don’t think so.. I think they should be treated equal to every other human with a heart, mind, and soul.
In my mind, the same goes for women. Just because they were born with different genitalia than a man, does that make them less than us? I personally don’t think so.
If someone is born homosexual, should they not be considered equal to someone who’s heterosexual? I personally don’t think so.
I think everyone deserves to be comfortable, happy, and honest in this short life we all have. We all have the right to free speech, regardless of gender, race, or sexuality, due to the First Amendment. That’s extremely fair to all walks of life. But does North Carolina’s Amendment One penalize some people from being completely comfortable and happy due to their sexuality?
I’m not saying I’m right and anyone else is wrong, I just want people to think morally, fairly, and objectively about what I’ve said. At some point it seems like we would all evolve enough to treat each other as absolute equals.. Because when you actually think about it, we’re all souls and spirits that inhabit a mortal body for a temporary amount of time. Do the specifications of the body that contain this soul really matter when judgment day comes? Food for thought..
I’m male, white, and straight. I personally couldn’t imagine myself being anything other than heterosexual. But I also am aware that I have many things and qualities about me that are majorly different from other people. So naturally, other people are going to be different from me. I accept that. I respect that. I don’t care if you’re a man, woman, white, black, brown, straight, or gay. I have close friends that fall under all of the aforementioned categories. I treat them all the exact same. I would also treat you and everyone else the same.
I’m not posting this to spark arguments, I’m posting this to spark thought..
Thanks for taking the time to read this. We’re all human beings, and we all are making this journey through life together. Be good to your fellow men and women, and may God bless us all. Regardless of where you stand on this issue, I wish nothing but the best for you in this life.
