Half-Hearted Care (a poem written by me)

You say you don’t judge me

Yet you approve the laws that do

You say you won’t hurt me

Yet you do with your words,

Words that say I shouldn’t be allowed to marry the one I want,

Words that say if you can’t create a child you shouldn’t be together

Words that say the only love allowed is the kind you experience

And not mine.

Actions speak louder than words,

And your words of love have no merit if your actions don’t echo it.

You think just because you’re nice to my face that you’re not judgmental

But behind my back ‘prayed’ to fix something that cannot be fixed

To a God that made me this way and wouldn’t want me any other way.

You say you don’t judge me

But you do,

And whether you admit it to yourself or not

It is what is true.

This makes me very sad to read. I happen to know the Bible has been misinterpreted/translated in a lot of anti-gay passages. I don’t believe GOD doesn’t want gay marriage but it is possible the biblical authors chose to oppose it and include it in scripture, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the view of the divine, remember this.

I do remember it. Don't worry. I know That One Passage is from the Old Testament which, thanks to Jesus, is no longer rules that need to be followed.

 

But some of the people who believe in Him still follow it and use it as ammo to judge me and my people... :(
