Not what God intends for the human family

A recent commenter shared this often-heard gem in a comment ” … homosexuality which the Bible clearly describes as willful sin against what God intends for the human family.”

And that got me to thinking…

There are SO MANY sins against humanity and God that are being perpetrated every minute of every day without so much a peep from fundamentalist Christians. Why on earth are folks so damn obsessed with my sex life, my love life and my family? Where is the outrage for the true horrors?

Here are some willful sins against what I understand God intends for the human family:

Dumping millions of gallons of oil in the ocean
Dumping millions of gallons of chemicals in our food supply
Dumping millions of hours into the entertainment cult and none into service
Decimation of species, in the name of progress
Decimation of the souls of the poor, in the name of progress
Decimation of other religions, in the name of God
Decimation of other humans, in the name of God
Young women and men dying in wars of the empire
Young women and men dying in prisons
Young children going to school with no food in their tummies
Young children going to bed with no food in their tummies
Young women starving themselves to death for a warped ideal of beauty
Young women going to shelters with broken arms and black eyes
Young girls being held down by rapists
Young men teaching each other the fine art of date rape
Young boys being sold to the highest bidder
Old veterans denied benefits
Old women denied healthcare
Families turning their backs on their children
Friends turning their backs on the mourning
Classmates turning their backs on the meek
Churches turning their backs on the poor
Communities turning their backs on the hungry
Nations turning their backs on the peacemakers



We all know that this list goes on and on. I invite you to add to it in the comments below.

If what I do in my bedroom and with whom I do it is your focus above and beyond all else, you might want to ask yourself if your behavior is what God intends for the human family.
