Thank you to everyone for all your loving support, comments, messages, videos and letters.... it has meant more to my family and I than I could ever tell you all.
I say yes! I think church and religion has gone too far in teaching and preaching hate, bigotry, and creating a hostile environment in our country an around the world.
We need to set rules n what they can and cannot teach withing their tax-fee institutions.
After I came across this video, my heart just ached for his young lad.
Then when I look back and think about all the hate and ugliness that is taught within a church and religion, I often wonder why they are not held accountable for instigating the killing of many gay men in America and around the world. They are after all the ones that teach, peach and breed this kid of putrid and ugliness within our country.
Look at the two men that solicited and then killed Mathew Shepard based on the teaching of their religion.
Look at the people in the middle-east that kill gay men and women publicly based on their religions and the belief that being born gay is a sinful act and should be punished by death.
If we cannot make death threats on a neighbor, relative, the president of the USA, then why the hell are we allowing church and religions to teach it and get away with it in America and around the world.
For me, it's time to end church and religion in overcame and make these evil doers pay their fair share in taxes like the rest of us. They have involved themselves in the political arena and therefore should lose their tax-exempt status pronto.
As for the kid in the video Jonah, I wish him the best in life, and if he were my son or my brother, I would love him gay or not. He is a human being, a life that is to be cherished and respected. something that church, religion, and religious people all have failed to do in America imo.
