I'm not one to talk about controversy a lot on my blog. Basically because I don't want my blog to be a place for a debate. It is just my personal thoughts and opinions. So if you don't like or agree with them, you will have to skip over posts like this :)
I'm sure you all have heard of the Time Magazine cover. To me, this is very disturbing. It is a woman breast feeding her 3 year old. She goes on to say she plans on doing it until he is 5 years old. And she does it in public too. First of all, I'm not against breastfeeding in public (as long as your not extremely exposed), seeing as how I've done it in public also :) ... but a kid that old?! - strange!
I'm just so baffled by a woman doing this, or even wanting to do this.
Like I said, some people will think this is okay, to me it's weird and just plain out there.
The second thing I have been hearing a lot about lately is how Obama announced that he is for gay marriage. This topic has been seeming to get a lot of people worked up. In my opinion, I think everyone has the right to be their own person. I think if we were all more willing to agree to disagree, there would be less hate in the world.
Some of the people on facebook said "God already made the decision" and "Maybe somebody needs to give Obama a Bible and tell him to read Genesis 19"
... hmm... maybe it does say that there, but doesn't the bible tell you not to gossip?
Such as these:
Leviticus 19:16 – “Do not go about spreading slander among your people. Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the Lord.”
Proverbs 11:13 – “A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.”
And I'm sure those people calling out how gay marriage is wrong have gossiped at some point of time. And have done numerous other things that the bible says is wrong.
I feel bad for the gay children of parents who are so stuck in their own ways. I can't imagine having to live like that. Even though it wouldn't be ideal, I would be okay with Tyler being gay. It wouldn't be what I picked for him, but then again, it's his life, not mine.
No matter what, this subject will always cause controversy. We just have to try to move forward and try to see things from the other side.
Couldn't think of a better way to end this post..
Matthew 7:1 – “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.”
