Agree to disagree....

... but wait.  I can not sit silently by and watch you say such ignorant things.  I must speak my peace.  I am sure you do not think you are ignorant.  I am sure you think your beliefs are right, why else would you believe them?  I know in my soul that peace is the answer.  Love is the way.  And our creator (however you see it) made us for good.  And as much as we try to be different, we are the same.  We want to belong.  We want to feel love.  And I believe we want to be authentically ourselves.  It is so hard to see people pretend to be something they are not.  It is so sad to see people hate on others when they just do not understand or they have been given the appropriate insight and they chose to be blind.  I think it all comes down to fear.  What are you afraid of?
Afraid of different.
Afraid of questioning what you have.
Afraid of being yourself.
Afraid of calling a committed, loving relationship between same sex people a marriage?

I can not comprehend why different equals a threat to you?  Why can't different be beautiful?  Why can't different be normal?  It is so easy to cling to our egos and make our ideas or issues seem bigger than they are.  I know that if you feel similarly this will make sense to you and that is alright.  I think that if you want to continue to have tunnel vision, to feel comfort in your chaos, you will blow this off as hippie nonsense and that is okay too.  You may not even read this in the first place.  I hope that you will find strength to be yourself.  Every.  Day.  I hope that you will be brave and let down your walls, do not fear what you do not understand.  Different is good.  We learn from different.  And different really isn't all that different in the end.

Thanks for reading.
