As I lay here on my porch swing looking at the sky, sorting all the jumble in my brain. I can't stop thinking about all the people in the world suffering. Maybe it be acts of hatred, maybe it be dying loved ones, maybe even just as simple as you don't know how you're going to pay your rent and survive in what seems to be a cold hard world. I've got quite the battle approaching. Everyone knows its a tough one to rise above and conquer. We have to remember to keep the faith and love flowing through our veins. Whatever struggles you are facing, whatever the outcome may be, just remember to always let your voice be heard and make some noise!!! You never know who just may be listening ♥
So, there you have it. In just under 72 hours, one dead, one in critical condition, one in serious condition. What's my point? If you go back to the insanity of the attack on the Oreo's ad on facebook, and read the comments, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the LGBT community is under attack...that "they" have declared war on members of the LGBT community and its supporters.
Here's the point: what we're starting to see is a culture that's reaching its boiling point. The religious fanatics and the homophobic extremists are multiplying rapidly, just as we are on this side of the battle line. For all of their holiness and deep-rooted "Christian" faith, they're leading us into, essentially, a war right here on our own soil. Their verbal assaults have been dialed up to fever pitch. Violence against members of the LGBT community is rising in both frequency and severity. And, people are losing their lives.
Of course, this mentality isn't anything new in this country. They killed blacks for sport as they fought for their rights. Isn't it ironic that these people who profess to be good, "God-fearing Christians" are so comfortable with hatred, intolerance and, worse, the death of those they oppose? Perhaps, for them, fearing God is in their best interest, after all.
