If I were to believe in a god

If I were to believe in a god. Then that god he or she would promote the whole Love one another concept, be nice to each other and be forgiving.

Great.

Does that mean only love my neighbor of the opposite gender? Because if I love my female friend and neighbors then that must mean I am a lesbian?

Right?

Or if I was a man then loving my fellow man would mean I am gay.

Right?

Oh Please!

If I were to believe in a god then that god would be all about love and caring for one another. Do people really think so little minded that they believe their god bothers to check the plumbing in a persons pants over the truth in their hearts? Love is love. Who cares if it is between two men or two woman? I don’t. Maybe that is gods way of lessening reproduction and impact people have on the earth? Or maybe it is god’s way of just giving people the ability to love even if they are not attracted to the opposite gender. Maybe, but who cares?

It is not our place to question why one god or another put people of this type or that type on the earth. If there truly is a god and that god created the heavens and earth, the microcosm and the cosmos then they are far more complex then our stupid human brains can comprehend. Who are we to pretend we know what the intentions of this amazing vast creature who can create universes, and who are we to interpret what they really mean? Really who were those 40 guys who wrote the bible or any the writers of the other great religious books written by mere mortals?

Here is an idea. What if the gods are really just life from another planet? What if those crazy people on TV are right and aliens did come to earth centuries ago? I bet if you showed a person from the stone ages a cigarette lighter they would think it was a creation from the gods, the gift of fire.

But who am I to say? Who are you?

Besides the point of all of this is not to debate who or what god is but to bring into light the idea that god or the concept of a god really is just love to some many who believe in him/it. Love is not hating one person because they happen to love someone of the same gender. Love is not judging them because they are different. Be the better person be nice to these people, be kind. And most of all be forgiving. Forgiving of yourself and your church leaders for teaching you to be small minded and bigoted. Someday you may need the forgiveness of others. Start by giving it to yourself.

Again, if I were to believe in a god. Then that god he or she would promote the whole Love one another concept, be nice to each other and be forgiving.
