believe it or not (read the description, kthxbai) by Colliequest believe it or not (read the description, kthxbai) by Colliequest
TEMPLATE: timarena.deviantart.com/art/ST…

New and significantly shortened description as of June 1st 2014--because people are either too lazy or too stupid to read the description and end leaving leaving the same comments over and over.

Let's get this straight, people: this stamp ain't about me. Yes, I'm a Christian, and yes I "disagree" with homosexuality. But I'm also a libertarian, and I'm libertarian precisely because I don't believe it's my place to run other people's lives. So, no, I myself am not out to ban gay marriage, as you are all so quick to assume. :roll:

This stamp's message is simple: people can hold controversial opinions without being a jackass about it. They can have controversial, even wrong, opinions and still behave very much like decent human beings--heck, some of them even have friends who are gay. A person's character is determined more than anything else by their actions and treatment of others. Just because someone has an opinion you hate doesn't make them scum of the earth.
Case in point: I know people who hold opinions like "the races should be separate", "women are not permitted to be pastors", "mixed marriage is wrong", that I still count as decent human beings. Yes, I may strongly dislike their views, but I find their overall behavior commendable.

TL;DR: beating people over the head with a chair for having different views is not the answr. Grow the flip up.


There, now stop spamming my inbox with the same bull that a hundred other people posted months ago.

It's like the Amish.
You have respect for them, even if you don't want to take part in it.
I'm actually a gay Christain, I just believe in the new testament, not the old one which says a man shall not lay with another man. Besides, I'm pretty sure it wasn't referring to being gay.

Well, I would have to disagree with this, only because the reason for being against something like this is pure ignorance.

Thank you~ I will put this on my profile no matter how many pro gay people decide to bully me. I can't get over the fact that people think this. Everybody has something they hate. I hate what I want to. So do you. You can't be a hypocrite and say you can hate me but I can't hate you. x.x

Well, I would hope it's clear that I'm not promoting hate, especially not in regards to people. I have friends who are gay. Since I consider them friends, I do not hate them. (Nor do I hate anybody else, whether they are friends or not.) I don't agree with everything they do, but that doesn't mean I hate them. They don't agree with everything I do, either. Some of them don't agree with my religion. Yet we still get along. We simply respect each other.
