I say "Christian organization," you say "Gay Hate Group."
I just read this article on Perez Hilton's blog regarding Focus on the Family announcing layoffs.
Let me just offer up a small disclaimer that I only know a tiny bit about Focus on the Family from my years of listening to the Christian radio station way back in the day, so for all I know, they may be a "gay hate group" as Perez calls them.
However, I don't think that simply acting on their beliefs about Prop 8 because of their beliefs and interpretation of the Word (many of which I likely agree with) make them a hate group.
Hate is a strong word, Perez.
I personally don't think that it should have passed, because who am I to judge the action of men (or women)? Do I condone homosexuality? No. Do I hate homosexuals because of that? Absofreakinglutely NOT.
The two are mutually exclusive. Believe it or not.
Consider this...do I condone the actions of a family member who was put in prison for several years for drugs and theft? Not in the slightest. Do I hate him? Of course not.
I subscribe to the Word of God, who considers all sins to be the same.
Strong action against what many think is a sin is not the same thing as "hate."
That just rubbed me the wrong way this morning, so I had to share.
Back later, with more better (and lighter) stuff.
