Controversial Church Topics (Pt. 1) Homosexuality

This photo is a bit extreme, but fully depicts the nasty taste that people get when they think of Christianity and homosexuality. It’s hypocritical assholes like these people that give the church such a bad rep when it comes to gays. They call them offensive names, such as faggot and queer, and expect them to turn from their ways and come to their god?

Now, if I was gay and someone was screaming at me telling me that I was going to burn in hell for what I was doing, frankly, I’d be pissed and I wouldn’t acknowledge anything they had to say. There is no excuse for this. What did Jesus tell the Rich Young Ruler when he asked what the greatest commandment was? If you guessed “Being a Condescending Asshole”, you probably need a new Bible. No, he said the most important commandment is to love God with everything you are, and he could have stopped there. That could have been good enough, but he felt the need to continue. He then said that the second is to love your neighbor as yourself. If you haven’t gotten it by now, LOVE is the recurring factor here. I don’t know when, or why, but it seems like Christians have fallen so far off the loving kindness path. It seems as though they have this self righteousness about them that makes them think that they’re better than everyone else. AND THEY’RE NOT! What the hell makes their sin any better than that of homosexuality? Matthew says it perfectly here.

“Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

I love at the end when he says that if you tell someone to do something one way, yet you do it another, there will be no progress. In fact, it will turn them away from whatever you are saying.

By now you must be thinking, Hmm I wonder if Damian thinks being gay is okay? And the answer is no. I think that Adam and Eve were created in the garden for a reason and that marriage is special to man and woman, but I will not sit here and be a judgmental prick. I will however, be loving towards them. How can I judge them when my sins are just as bad?

I’m going to move away from the Bible for a moment and talk about America and gays. Seriously people? This should be a no brainer. Where in the Constitution does it say that gays do not have the right to marry? That’s right, nowhere. In my personal opinion I think that gay marriage being illegal is unconstitutional.

What I’m trying to say is that we need to stop the hateful, judgmental attitude towards gays and start showing love towards them. Because nothing will change until that happens.

Here is a song that I really like that depicts how we should love!

When I mention Christians and the church I am not talking about ALL Christians and ALL churches. There are good Christians and good churches out there.

 

Controversial Church Topics

Over the next few weeks I’ll be going over some topics that are controversial in the church and what they mean to me. This is just me speaking. I don’t represent any one church or group. These topics are just some things that I have been heavyhearted about, so I’ll be sharing my standpoint on them. Please feel free to comment and share your opinions on the topics as well, in fact, it is preferred. Anyway, stay tuned in these next few weeks and enjoy!

It’s official!

So tonight I decided to buy a domain name. I am not disappointed. Rather than having that pesky .wordpress in my website name, it is officially http://www.damianmorris.com now. Please feel free to explore my site and don’t be afraid to click on the follow button either!

I Love Writing

Lately I have been really bad about keeping up on writing. And that’s weird too, because I love to write more than anything else in the world. I’ve just recently started writing again and I have to say, it feels great. Writing to me is a huge stress reliever. I am currently working on a story that I think is going to be awesome! As time goes on I will let you know what it’s about, but right now I’ve barely written anything so you’ll just have to wait. Anyway, thanks for visiting.
