It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.

Your daily dose of stupidity brought to you from this thread at [livejournal.com profile] ljchristians. I feel bad for the original poster because they really seem to be looking for advice on how to help their friend, but I don't think they realize that this is not the place to look for it. I don't know if [livejournal.com profile] ljchristians is has bad as [livejournal.com profile] christianity can be about this, but...damn it all, even though I know I shouldn't look, I did. As this is one comment that I found.

Im sure I'll be shot down in flames for for saying this, but its a lie to say someone is homosexual. As hard as it may be to accept, attraction to people of the same sex is only natural in that its natural for mankind to sin; and having sexual relations with people of the same sex is a sin.

Its' not something you "are". It is a behavioral type and generally reflects some kind of hurt or problem in the past.

Your dear friend does not have to dispair though: The answer lies in the blood of Jesus which can heal her wounds and change her desires. The trouble is finding a christian pastor who understands this, and is able to love the sinner despite the sin. She also must not cut herself up about it. She needs counselling and deliverance from her past. Once that is done, the sin which is the symptom will disappear.

Sometimes I really hate Christians. Which sounds bad considering I am one, but I can't lie about this. Sometimes I hate the people who share my faith. I can only hope that the comment I left in the thread will be of some help to the original poster's friend.

I just wish that people would actually...oh, I dunno, know what the hell they're talking about before they speak. I'm tired of hearing this shit. Oh, well... Be the change you want in the world, right? I guess the only thing I can do, and that other people can do, is reach out to people who are confused and questioning and maybe bit by bit these kinds of answers will disappear.

I dream, right?
