Imma Offend Me Some Homophobes (and lose some followers)

Standard

Warning:  This rant was set off (again) by this article : http://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-mo-ellen-degeneres-20121207,0,4519751.story

You can choose to be offended by what I am about to write, by my personal opinion but frankly I do not give one-single-fuck.

I do not care if you will not like me anymore, if you’ll “unfriend” me, or if you’ll stop following this blog.  Frankly, if you’re a hate filled asshole then I’d rather you dropped off.

I’m not apologizing, fuck off.

Hi, my name is Sarah.  I am pro LGBT rights.  Two chicks getting married isn’t going to impact MY relationships.  Two dudes getting married isn’t going to impact MY relationship.  Christ, if they REALLY want to be in a sexless, miserable relationship that costs waaaay too much money to get out of, they can join the damned club. (joke)  It doesn’t impact MY life, MY morals, MY relationship.

I am a straight woman for gay rights.

I am a mother for gay rights.

I am a human-being for EQUAL rights.

I am sure as hell not going to stop shopping at a store because they have a *gasp* lesbian as a spokesperson. You’re not going to catch gay from clothes, at least not from ‘Penneys (joke).  Hell, she’s funny as shit, I might shop there more if she keeps being funny.  When I saw this article, I was appalled.  It makes me angry.  It makes me want to kick some people in the head.  What the hell is wrong with people?

Now normally, I don’t particularly get all riled up about some stupid right wing group shitting their little panties about something, but this one just irritated me.  It got me to thinking, it really stirred some thoughts, and I have some questions.  Okay.  Maybe they’re not questions, maybe they’re rhetorical questions, because frankly, I don’t want to hear the answers.

Christians.  This one is for you.

{Disclaimer: Okay, I know many, many Christians of every denomination that are not hate-mongers.  There are some very loving people out there that are NOT included in this rant.  If I do offend someone of the Christian faith, I do apologize, but I have to get this off of my chest.)

Hey.  So.  Most of the assholes we all see in the news protesting gay-rights, or just gay-people-existing, are Christians.  Very, VERY, conservative Christians.  What the hell guys?  I was brought up Lutheran, I spent waaaay too much time in my church, and I don’t ever remember my pastor saying you should hate gay people, that you should boycott companies that support gay rights, that you should be a general asshole and run your mouth against gay rights (which by the way, it gets old).  I don’t remember that part.  Maybe my church was special.  Or maybe my innocent-child-mind didn’t absorb hate speech.  What I learned from Church, The Bible and Sunday School was to LOVE one another.  To be KIND.  I don’t remember hate.

So tell me.  Pleeease explain to me why Gay people are bad.  How does a gay couple getting married “destroy the sanctity” of marriage?  Explain.  I can’t see how a gay couple getting married destroys anything, hell if anything, blame ME, I got divorced.  Hell, if I could go back in time, I’d divorce his ass AGAIN.

Even if you believe that it’s “not right” or a “sin” (have you seen what heterosexual people do in a club!?), why be an asshole? Aren’t you supposed to LOVE others?  If you honestly believe it’s a sin, shouldn’t you forgive?

Hell.  If you want to be a giant-homophobic-asshole, be one, don’t shop at JCPenney’s, don’t attend a gay marriage, don’t be gay.  Then the “horrific, sinful, GAYs” won’t affect your life.  Unless your kid is gay.  But that’s a whole other ballgame.  What other people do with their lives, doesn’t directly affect yours.  I don’t care what you say, it doesn’t.  If “gay marriage” is legal in every-god-damned-state, guess what? It’s still marriage.  Your marriage or lack there off hasn’t changed, won’t change.

I do not get it.

Just STOP being assholes.

  1. Oh, Oh, Oh, I’m a Christian! Let me respond!!! (I might have had too much coffee already today) 1) In the bible being Gay is a sin. BUT so is drinking to excess. Opps. So are tattoos. Opps. So is smoking. Opps. Also, if you do some bible study you’ll find that hate is the same thing as murder. Hrrrm. And too the bible says one sin is no greater than another. A sin is a sin is a sin. Yup. And Paul, the most awesomeness guy besides Jesus in the bible wrote that when in a sinner’s home that you are to LOVE them as Jesus would, not to judge their sins or to cast stones, but to LOVE them. So as a Christian, a real one, I might not be on the bandwagon of Gay marriage, I won’t hold up signs at parades, I won’t plaster my car with rainbow stickers… but I won’t judge. That’s not up to me to do. Luckily for all of ya, I’m not God, and that’s his job. And he’s pretty cool, he loves everyone, hence the whole Jesus thing. And I’m not sure what my #2 was going to be or as to why I started with #1. Probably something to do with the coffee again… <3
