By our love

"They will know we are Christians by our love..." I learned that song in the third grade when I made my first holy communion in the Catholic Church. Thinking about it though....what love? I'm not saying ALL Christians hare hatefull, but many of them have, in my opinion lost site of what it really means to be a Christian.

Today the godhatesfags.com group is comming to UNM. I'm pissed as hell. Although the LGBTQ group is flattered that we would be recognized for our diversity (which is such an awesome approach in my opinion) I can't help but look at the situation in a differant way. These people are supposed to be Christians and when you think of Christians used to anyways you would think of "love". The kind of love that Jesus taught us to have. But now everyone goes around saying "G-d hates___ " you can fill in the blank there are plenty of things that G-d hates according to Christians. G-d hates homosexuals, pornography, gambling, alcohol, prostitutes, sinners etc...

But what or who does G-d love? People don't go around saying "G-d loves____" no of couse not! That would give people the chance to move around to boast in the pride that G-d loves them, to give them a chance to break through the conformity of the Christian group.

I'm not Catholic anymore, but I still hold some kind of wierd twisted respect for the Church because I did grow up in it and it is the church my family went to. True, they have there faults and it depends on what congregation you go to but I do know that my priest never said that G-d hated anyone except for people who act like they know exactly what G-d likes and doesn't like as if they sat down and had coffeee with him last Tuesday.

So yeah, after godhatesfags.com gets through saving "fag infested" UNM they are off to Santa Fe...They are going to picket right in front of the CATHEDRAL. Pisses me off....thats such an awesome cathedral in Santa Fe's plaza. After that they are going to the other Cathedral with the spiral staircase. Grrrrr not only do they insult my best friends and family for being gay, but then they go and insult the rest of my Catholic family.

I promised Jake I wouldn't get involved so I am just gonna sit here and bitch about it :-)

Here is the song:

We are one in the Spirit,We are one in the Lord,
We are one in the Spirt,We are one in the Lord,
And we pray that all unity may one day be restored.

Refrain
And they'll know we are Christians by our love,by our love,
Yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.

We will walk with each other,We will walk hand in hand,
We will walk with each other,We will walk hand in hand,
And together we'll spread the news that God is in our land.

[repeat refrain]

We will work with each other,We will work side by side,
We will work with each other,We will work side by side,
And we'll guard each one's dignity and save each one's pride.

[repeat refrain]

All praise to the Fa-ther, From whom all things come,
And all praise to Christ Jesus,His only Son,
And all praise to the Spirit,who makes us one.
Comments:
I just read Matthew Chapters 4-6 and it talks a great deal about judgement and the hypocracy in such shallow displays of faith. I guess that those who use God's name to slander others while ignoring their own hatred and misuse of scripture will get the due reward in the end.
 
God hates sin, all sin, regardless of what kind of sin it is. Sin is sin in His eyes and there is no one sin worse than another.

I agree with Misc debris. That kind of behavior is not looked upon in favor by God. In doing those things they are sinning just as much and just as bad as the people they are protesting against.

My pastor just had a sermon about this very subject last week. If you'd be interested in listening, I think you might enjoy it! If you want the link let me know. It is dealing with Romans 1-2.
 
Thank you for you ummm "enlightened" thoughts Nicole...I would definatly love to hear your pastors sermon.

Thanks!

Interesting, I just mentioned in a post on my blog the whole Fred Phelps type that go around doing this stuff too. Sad, really sad. Glad to see that hopefully the next generation (you!!) will have more sense. And Godly love. Thanks for providing hope.
