BEING DIFFERENT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Millions of people all over the world are realizing that no man is an island. If the planet earth is to survive the one lesson humans must learn is how to get along with each other. There is decency in recognizing all humans as equals. Acceptance is easy, interesting, and educational. Appreciating diversity is the key to human happiness and happiness is the main ingredient in the recipe for successful living.
The ability to look at the world and realize that present conditions are not working should be an easy realization. Still many individuals hold on to the traditions that have made the world a miserable place to live. There comes a time in any society when citizens must stand up and say NO to church leaders and politicians who are advocating policies that are detrimental to successful living.
has lost ALL respect for human dignity. Police continue to kill innocent
victims with little or no outcry from most citizens. Airlines continue to drag
innocent paying customers off flights and citizens merely look on. Political
leaders pass laws that deny millions health benefits and brainwash citizens to
think that this is the right thing to do. It has become the norm for
politicians to lie to their constituents, and their constituents continue to
reelect them to leadership positions. And
it is most amazing that thousands of Americans citizens stand up and cheer while
politicians lie, cheat, and steal. It is
hard to believe that Americans are applauding while politicians are denying
them health insurance that could possibility cost them their own lives. United States
American preachers are advocating that parents kill gay children. Many other Christian ministers are teaching parents to abandon gay and lesbian off-springs. My way or the highway is not the American way. It is a miserable father who puts his son or daughter on the streets because he or she is gay, lesbian, transgender, or bisexual. Love has never been greater than when a father puts his arms around his gay son and says, “I LOVE YOU.” When a father loves unconditionally it is the greatest “pleasure cruise” he will ever be on. It may not be a “bed of roses” from the local preacher or from the guys in the neighborhood, but it will be the greatest relationship he has ever had because it will be a relationship built on love. Loving someone does not produce a criminal because in love no crime is committed. Love is the greatest example of human kindness found in the universe and how many times did Jesus have to tell us that it’s all about love?
If Jesus walked on the earth today he would love African children as much as he would love any others. He would wrap his arms around all the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender teenagers who have been made homeless by parents who have listened to wrong Christian teachers. He would stamp out the money-changers in all the places of worship, and he would rebuke millionaire preachers who live in luxury while thousands of hungry and homeless people live in cardboard boxes.
