I’m a religious person, and I believe in the Bible and I try to live by it as best I can. I view it as my handbook to life. It tells me how to live the happiest life I possibly can, but I do understand that many people don’t view the Bible in the same way and that people may choose to live their life in a way opposite to the Bibles teachings.
There seems to be a lot of controversy over topics such as gay rights, and I often here religious people citing the Bible as a reason why people shouldn’t be given equal rights. Well quite frankly it makes me mad.
If you believe in the Bible then you know that God gave humans free will- that’s the right to choose. The right to live your life, even the right to take your own life. The right to do bad or to do good. The right to believe in God or not. Now if God gave all humans the right to do whatever they want, then why are you suggesting that there are exceptions in that?
There is nothing wrong with having beliefs and living by them, and if your beliefs lead you to feel like you can’t support something then you don’t have to. But if God isn’t fighting to take rights away or to stop them from being given, then why are you?
