I think coming out in todays society can be over blown, but after reading a hardcore Christian's tweets, I can see why we as a society seem to praise it. The LGBT community certainly isn't out of the hot water yet. There is still so much progress to be made.
"It breaks my heart to see people like you because I know that you will end up in hell. But there's not much I can do about it."
This person personally sent me this, among other things, after I criticized her views on abortion and homosexuality. She stated that being a Christian, she doesn't believe in either of those things. It's nice to have views and values and limitations for yourself, but when the views you possess restrict others and their freedoms, it's no longer right for you to actively push for those views. If something doesn't effect you, stay out of it. Two guys getting married wouldn't hurt you. A woman should be able to chose her own path, not you or the laws you push that ban abortions.
Just because you have a voice doesn't mean it always needs to be heard. Sometimes, it's okay to just let people have their freedoms. I know we all have our opinions, that's the 'Good old American way', but we sometimes need to just take a step back and say 'Is this right?' Is it right to hate a group of people because a book tells you? I mean, that's all up to you. But just stop and think. That sounds kinda like Hitler to me. Think for yourself. There is nothing wrong with being religious, I find that having faith in something is a nice way of staying positive. But would God really want you to actively hate gay people this much? No. He wouldn't. Think, please. I know it's hard sometimes after you've been spoon-fed answers for so long, but please, just try to see from another perspective.
But let me tell you something, dear.
It breaks my heart that you were raised to be a hateful bitch who pushes issues that should've been left in the 20th century.
