"it’s a poem i wrote about my opinion about Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Transgender from my religion's point of view." - Meriani


Why Melody Liked It
Melody liked that it was coming from the viewpoint of a religious person, as this is what a true religious person should
behave towards the GLBT community.

I am a very religious person
So I will speak my mind
God created us the same
Why should I hate or despise them?
Because they are going against the normal norms?
Because the Bible addresses such act as a sin?
Does their believe affect my daily life?
Does that make them less human?
I so believe not!

Our ignorant belief drive young children and adults toward suicide everyday
Doesn’t that make us murderers?
It’s not a disease for God’s sake
Neither is it contagious
It’s just a preference
From religion’s perspective, who gave us the authority to judge others?
It’s not that we are a 100% Holy ourselves

I am straight to the core
And I often get mixed feelings about homosexuality
A part of me thinks it’s wrong
A whole me thinks they shouldn’t be treated differently
But just like some people do say
“Hate the sin but love the sinner”
Which is what I am standing by.
