  •  Making fun of the mentally ill (3+ / 0-)

    I fully understand and appreciate how insulting and demeaning those words on the church sign are to gays and lesbians.

    Those words on that church sign are an insult to anyone regardless of sexual orientation who reads the Bible and understand that God and Love are one and the same.  This is exactly what is written in the Bible.

    People who read the Bible and come away with the belief that same-sex relationships are sinful have some sort of mental or cognitive problem.  This is delusional thinking that cannot be changed with facts or reasoned argument.

    I was brought up with the teaching that it is impolite to make fun of the mentally ill.  So I do not engage the religiously deluded in the very place which gives rise and reinforces their delusions.  It would make as much sense to me as going to a crack-house and telling the residents that they should stop smoking crack and go work out at the gym instead.

    I admire your courage and strength.  I hope you and your significant other have a long, peaceful, and loving life together.
