Tolerance and acceptance are not enough. You. MUST. celebrate. my. kid’s. gayness.
Yes, you’re being oppressed. Got it.
I see nothing in the Huffingtonpost article you linked that says YOU must celebrate MY kid. What I see instead is an author saying that parents should love their children.
Since Jesus Christ preached so much about love–love for neighbors, love for enemies, etc.–one would think Christians would be on the forefront of telling the world that we should love each other. God so loved us, so we should also love one another. It should be the pagans and anti-Christians who preach hate and the Christians who preach love. Instead, you see narcissism and upcoming government persecution when a parent says that people should be loved.
“Love the sinner and hate the sin,” eh? Maybe you’re admitting now that this isn’t really possible.
I am your parent. I tell you in no uncertain terms that you must be a baptist, and if you become a Catholic, I may tolerate it but I will no longer love you. Sound fair?
“[T]hose who are not with us are against us.” Gee, you’re absolutely right. Only someone who’s horribly narcissistic and paranoid would say something like that, a terrible leader suitable for an unstable, violent mob.
“He who is not with Me is against Me.”
Jesus Matthew 20:10
Sorry. Never mind.
