“Aborting the Hate”

Whether or not abortion is a sin, is between God and the person having the abortion, not any other person and/or book, God inspired or otherwise.

We all have our opinions on the matter, and like spoiled kids who argue over which flavor ice cream to have, we aren’t going to budge and/or see the other’s point of view.

With that said, I personally don’t believe that abortion is an acceptable form of birth control, considering that there are many things a woman, and a man, could do to avoid getting pregnant.

Now that doesn’t mean that I believe every person who has an abortion is using it as such, there are many reasons why someone would feel lead to make that decision, and unless we walked a mile in their shoes, we have no right to assume what their reasons are and/or to pass judgment on them for doing so.

Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself” and in this particular situation these words have fallen on deaf ears, they have been overlooked and ignored many times over.

None of us would want to be judged and/or condemned when we had a difficult decision like this to make, but still we take it upon ourselves to treat others like trash when they are faced with a decision such as this, which is totally unloving and hurtful to say the least.

It saddens me to see people fight so vigorously for the unborn, but then when they are born as a result of their actions, they want nothing more to do with them, and they could care less what the ultimate outcome would be of their life and overall wellbeing.

They curse, they condemn and they make the women who have abortions, or even just considering one, feel like complete garbage, like they belong with the likes of the most heinous murderers this world has ever seen.

You never see people offering solutions, only judgment, which is very unfortunate.

Why don’t these antiabortion people offer to pay for a psychiatrist for the mother who had to carry and deliver a child who may have come to be by some less than desirable means and/or possibly born into an unhealthy environment, but decided to keep the child based on their influence?

Why don’t these same people offer to pay for diapers, formula and other related expense that come with having a child, they say you’re going to hell for having an abortion, but you’ll never see them go to the bank with the purpose of helping out with the expenses of having a child?

The women, who we men are supposed to love, cherish and protect, are tossed aside as if they are nothing more than the cardboard packaging that hold the Cracker Jacks, the box is worthless, we only want the prize inside.

Before damning another to the depths of hell for their actions, or making them feel like less than an equal, take a step back and look upon them with compassion, and unclench your fist of rage and offer an understanding hand.

We men, whether we like it or not, have no rights and/or say-so over a woman’s body, they are free to do as they feel fit, just as we are.

The sooner we realize this, and allow others to live their lives as they so desire, they sooner we can move forward and work to make this planet a better place for all of us involved.

Now of course in an ideal world, this decision would be discussed by both parties involved and an outcome would be reached that benefits all interested parties, but unfortunately that is not always the case and sometimes us men are left out of the decision altogether.

“Gay, God’s Way”

When it comes to homosexuals there are many beliefs as to how they came to be, they were sexually abused as a child, the environment they grew up in was lacking a strong male/female parental figure or even that there is something wrong with their brains, but never is it just that they were born that way.

The reason for that is because we know that God doesn’t make mistakes, he is an artist and all his works are masterpieces, so if they were in fact born that way it must mean that’s how He wanted them to be, and there is no way that the hateful and/or ignorant people who condemn them want to hear and/or believe that.

We all know it’s not how we are made that makes us evil, but rather what we do with the free will He has blessed us with that determines the kind of person we are, whether that be a person who lives their life for the lord, or a person who lives their life for the sin.

The truth is that they are born that way, they are truly product of the almighty himself, and whether you want to believe it or not there is a reason why he made them the way he did.

In the beginning God wanted his people to be fruitful and multiply, to populate the Earth, but now considering the cesspool our evil ways have created out of this planet, why would he want any more of us running around making things worse.

Take for example all the children in this world that are without love, who have no idea what a heartfelt embrace feels like, who spend all their time wondering why and how come, their lives are full of emptiness and uncertainty.

These children were brought into this world by heterosexual couples who could not, or choose not, to properly provide for them, to take care of them and to be responsible for their well-being and overall welfare.

That is where homosexuals come into play, because who better to care for these children than couples who can’t have kids of their own, but have the desire and compassion to provide for them and to love them the way they deserve to be loved.

Do you really believe that these children would mind if they were accepted into a family with two loving and caring parents who want nothing but the best for that child and those two parents just happen to be of the same sex?

I know some of you more combative Christians, who use the bible as a weapon, would say that the bible says gays are bad, an abomination even, and the sole creation of the devil himself.

With that said, I would remind you that God's plan for us evolves to meet his current needs/desires and that he makes things happen for a reason, like a conductor leading the orchestra, he does things that we may not agree with and/or completely understand but ultimately it is his will.

The bible is not the end, it is only the first book in a series, there is more to come and to think otherwise would be utterly foolish and blatant disrespect to the lord himself.

Some of you may also say that the bible, which is God inspired and man delivered, says differently, but I truly feel as if this piece is God inspired, I feel that he lead me to deliver this message to the people.

This message is not coming from a gay man, I am a straight man who is just trying to keep God’s message of love alive and well.

Feel for me as you will, but just remember hate is hate, and that is not what God is about and/or wants for his people.

“Love Is My Religion”

The golden rule according to Jesus, "Whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them" which are truly words to live by.

You don’t need a million dollars to change the world, to make it a better planet, a place worth living.

Sometimes a friendly gesture goes a long way, a kind word, a warm smile or even a firm embrace could make a person’s bad day better.

Just because you are not financially wealthy, doesn’t mean that you can’t bless someone else’s life, and leave them feeling like they truly are somebody special and worth their weight in gold.

Let people know how much they mean to you now, don’t wait until they are six feet under to express your love for them.

Celebrate with them while they are still able to participate and appreciate your kind words and/or deeds of love, let them know every chance you get just how important they are to you, and not just on special holidays and/or occasions.

Don’t just limit your love to people you know, people who you are comfortable with, because sometimes the people we can’t stand considerably, are the people who need our love the most.

It is not difficult to love the people who love us back, who treat us right; the real challenge is loving people who have wronged you, who have pained you in one way or another.

We also should not be selfish with our love; we must do our best to make it is not exclusive to friends and family.

Embrace a stranger and don’t be afraid to extend your hand to them, because you never know the impact it may have on them and their overall existence, you could possibly change their life for the better and in turn set off a chain reaction.

You shouldn’t fear human contact; you shouldn’t shy away from connecting with others, don’t hesitate to extend the olive branch of love to others.

Show the world that no matter what color, sex and/or religion a person is, that we are all one in the same, and all deserving of love.

Spread the love, and squash the hate, we all have to live on this planet, so it might as well be as brothers and sisters, and not bitter enemies or total strangers.
