It’s been bothering for a while, but everyone knows that I’m a Christian, but I’m also gay. To anyone who goes along with the scene of Christianity would outright attack me for stating this fact. Quite honestly, this is the reason I am hesitant to return to church.
Just a few weeks ago, I made a status on my FB, saying, “If a killer can become a Christian, and Christian a killer, why can’t a homosexual become a Christian?”
My mom, of course, supported what I was saying. There was a woman, however, that I do go to church with, who felt the need to be a complete bitch, stating, “Do you want the truth, or self-validations on a social network?” If I had wanted a smart ass answer, I would have asked a smart ass question.
The truth? Yes, I do want the truth, instead of personalized scripture. Why is a sin like murder more forgivable than homosexuality? When has a gay relationship hurt another person? Where in the Bible, in fact, does it state that? As far as I’ve read, it doesn’t, unless you want to bring the Book of Leviticus in the picture—then, I have defense against that, too: The Bible says women have no rights, and blacks are slaves.
My EMR instructor: You arrive at a scene with a patient laying on the ground. You check their level of alertness and they appear unconscious. You have already opened their airway with an adjunct and are administering oxygen.
What do you do next?
Student: Call 911!
My EMR Instructor: YOU ARE 911.
