Adding my voice

There's been a lot of chatter on Facebook
and other places saying that the LDS church hates
gays, lesbians, transgenders, and bisexuals.


All people are sons and daughters of God,
as such they are loved by us
and Heavenly Father and Jesus.
I have a few gay friends and
they are perfectly wonderful people.

While I believe that marriage is for man and woman only,
that doesn't mean that I think others are evil
for getting married.
I will not judge you for your beliefs,
and all people are loved by God.

I wish this world would see how you can't judge an entire people
based on a few horrid examples.
And sure, I know that there are some LDS people that are rude,
and condemning,
but does that qualify that my entire religion is that way?

In a perfect world, there would be no need to bully,
and make others feel like they are nothing.
As we wath the news and see more youth dying
after they proclaim their sexual orientation.
It's just so sad.
No I don't agree with some things,
but no one should be persecuted for their beliefs.
Or for how they are.

I know that we are all God's children,
He never leaves us all on our own
without help.
I know that He loves all His children equally,
how could He not??
He's our Father in Heaven.
I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior,
and loves me and each individual person as well.
I believe that marriage is between man and woman.
I know that if we will find a way to stop
this bullying of youth in this predicament,
the violence will stop.

I know this is a little out of the norm for me to write,
but I feel like something should be said
for these kids that have lost their lives because of bullying.
And for the fact that some have been saying that the LDS church is responsible.
That's just not true.
Read our beliefs and there is nothing that says we
want to bully anyone for anything.
