interesting apology

the first thomas jefferson meeting in weeks was set up for today during lunch. few actually came that where on the group list but the rest will at the very least be caught up on the events of the meeting.

we were originally told we were meeting up to discuss what we wanted to plan for the events for the last half of the year but it turned out very different. one of the teachers (who was christian) had been planning on speaking to the group as a whole for awhile. he went through lines in the bible and explained how incorrect christians were in beleiveing that they should judge people for being gay, their beleif in (or lack of beleif in) a certain god. that he understood that most christians misunderstood wording in the bible and often hated gays and that the christian churchs promoted this whole idea and that most people were ignorant to what the lines really meant.

everyone present listened carefully to what he had to say and clapped when he was finished. though he cant speak for all christians (which he admitted) it is generally true that many churches ignore this whole idea and most preachers wont even go over it. during all of the years i served as a christian and all of the times i spent in a christian church no one would touch these lines. all of the people who claimed to teach for god would completely skip these sections or would make it seem like it applied only to those who werent in the glbt community. it gives  me a sickening feeling that those who claim to read “the word of god” would misinterpret it this way and shove it down the throats of an entire church rather than showing what he was truely ment to be with these lines of the bible. we can only hope some of this adversity becomes lighter with the years and more people realize the true meaning of these lines over what some homophobic church leaders choose to believe.
