I make no bones about it – those who are LGBT are some of the loveliest people on the planet, and for the life of me I cannot understand why it is that certain religious believers seem to need their own whipping boy or girl, for whatever is their agenda, and their agenda is filled with nothing more than hatred, than judgement, than all of those things that the book they thump others with states they are not supposed to do. Yet, they do it anyway. People like to see the differences that we have with each other, but the thing that really makes it bad is when certain types of people are not willing to see that even while we are different, we are very much the same in many more ways than only the biological ones. (Yep, I said it…deal with it).
Because I am a minister whose duties include the bringing together in wedded bliss, two souls interested in finally reuniting in Divine Union, it is sort of my job, too, to be able to see past what is so obviously there and so obviously not like straight folks. Yet the thing that not a lot of people want to see, namely those who are professing their beliefs about their one true God, but whose physical eyes are those which are discerning for them what only the eyes of the Soul can see, and what the eyes of the Soul can see are those things that we all need. One thing that all of us needs, in some manner and from someone, is the energy of acceptance. This is our societal black eye, folks – that too many of us are scapegoating people who do not deserve to be who pays for the quiet, even somewhat homo-erotic curiosities that many, many straight people who follow certain religions have within them, are blaming on anything but their own bio-curiosities.
I am reminded of a pair of lovely young souls I joined together in Divine Union, back before the Prop. 8 nonsense became acceptable, and who, for the life of them, could not understand what the problem was, because all they were was in love, and all they wanted to be was with one another, in marriage, as a couple, and I really, dearly loved giving them what they so dearly desired. All they wanted was to be with one another. For me it was a no-brainer. I want everyone to be happy, even complete strangers. I was able to give them what they wanted so dearly. No, not to be married, but to have this one action played out with them, so that they would have the absoluteness of equality, from a married point-of-view.
While I know that things are changing, there are still a whole lot of souls on the planet who prefer to see the LGBT community with whom we share the air with as somehow not being equal to us. This is not okay, and it is time for this to be different. The LGBT community is not going anywhere. The straight community, at least a few of us, really need to stop hating on things we do not understand. We are not hurting anyone but ourselves, and there are those who are still remaining to think the way that many thought on the very day that one Ms. Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus. It is the same thing, with the same exclusive energy that was present in those times, I will assume, and it is the same in that we want to pretend to love those who we deem as “not like us.”
The time has come for the reality of Unconditional Love be something that no votes need to be tabulated to count.
There is nothing in this world like Love with one other person. We are all privy to it.
Yes…even those to whom too many still refer to as sinners named “Adam and Steve.” I would like to ask those who feel as though it is theirs to judge anyone why it is also theirs to think that the same God who they tell everyone Loves all of us no matter what, is also a God who would shun a few because a few more seem to think it is okay to judge in the name of their lord.
Get over yourselves already…know Love, please, when you see it, even if it hurts your ego’s eyes.
