So,back to the haters group I joined/Quit!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I could'nt rest knowing that a church had a group of hate mongers.When I think of church,I think of love,understanding,acceptance,help,friend-
ship,peace and honor among fellow members.My friend Josie and I returned and spoke out about hatred and recieved equal amounts of understanding and anger at us.Keeping issues buried wont help.We were basically told to mind our own business.We were called horrible names and told to leave.Josie was called the "N" word I was called gay lover..only not those words were used.I cleaned them up a bit!We both laughed because we both have been called worse.Surprisingly though the pastor asked us to return for a meeting!Not knowing what to expect,we took a pal.Many people react with fear of the unknown.They have been thinking that being around a gay or lesbian will make them gay also!Or contract HIV.If this is you,get educated!!I have the utmost love and respect for everyone BUT,HATERS! emoticon emoticonSUSAN

    As a gay man, I'm particularly proud of your response. What a horrid little group of people they are.

    I think of the scripture that says: "Your enemies will be of your own house." (sorry-am rushing and can't look up for exact verse) ...... HE did mean the house of God or Body of Christ .......... (Sorry to hear, but not so surprised ............... For this reason, my hubby and I pray AT HOME and no longer attend church. (Hope this offends no one, but we saw enough hatred and 'scandal' to last this lifetime!! (I am sure the next world will be A LOT better than this!)

    Those people have no business calling themselves a church. You and Josie deserve a place of love and understanding. In other words, a REAL church.

What was it Jesus said? "These people honor Me with their lips but their hearts are far from Me." I hope you find the church home you deserve, full of peace and love.

    It saddens me that there are people in the world that are so filled with hate. I am a Christian, and though I may not agree with the life choices of some, I would NEVER put them down because of it. Jesus tells me to love everyone no matter what.

I do hope that if you want to continue going to a church, that you find one that is filled with loving & caring people!

  I'm so sick of people who use religion to justify their bigotry. During the days of slavery, segregation, and anti-miscegenation laws bigots claimed that black people carried the mark of Cain even though the Bible never even mentions what the mark of Cain was. Now people who don't like GLBT try to use religion to justify their bigotry. One thing I point out is that in all of Jesus' sermons he never even mentioned homosexuality. If being gay was such a bfd don't you think it would have come up at least once? Sure the Old Testament condemns it but it has lots of rules Christians cheerfully ignore but note they focus like a laser on anything condemning homosexuality. I'm not a Christian but one thing that always inspired me is Jesus's advice for identifying false prophets; he said that we will know them by their fruits. There was a group in the Bible that favored rule following over loving their fellow man; they were called Pharisees and Jesus didn't think much of them. Fundamentalists are today's Pharisees.

    I'm glad that you called them out on there incorrect beliefs, For most people I think its the lack of exposure that breads hate, When people can't assign a name or a face with a generalization its easy to dismiss them or have animosity. I think that your exposing the group no mater how resistant they were was brave of you, You cant change everyone views but you can get people thinking. emoticon

my appliances are rebelling

I woke to get some breakfast and found my milk and eggs warm,water in the freezer and the washer is making loud screeching noises!The fan just quit on me and the coffee pot broke and the dishwasher wont fill!Otherwise,I am in great shape!!Luckily,I found a fridge for free in the want ads.A fan on clearance for $10,instant coffee will be good,I can wash dishes by hand and a neighbor is loaning us a washer until we can replace the current one.A silver lining in our clouds!! emoticonSUSAN

I joined a group of HATERS!

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I AM SO OVER THIS GROUP!!!My friend kept telling me what awesome people they were and I took a leap of faith.How could I know what bigotry and fear lurked?I soon came to realize how rude and hateful these people were.Bitter hateful words erupted from them.I am not to be molded by anyone.My family and friends have gay/lesbian members that I love dearly.Being gay does not affect how much I love them.When someone is hated for who they are and who they love,It's just plain wrong and I spoke up.I was afraid they might harm me but,I stood up and told them I was done!!!Nobody hates on the ones I LOVE!!I left and did'nt look back.People dont hate it only hurts others.... emoticonSUSAN

    Go YOU!

You did right thing, getting out of there. I'm glad to read that even within a group that I generally don't understand (church groups), there are people like YOU who really are thinking and caring. And getting the heck OUT when it's too much.

    I couldn't agree with you more. I wish people could just love and accept people for who they are, and not based on what religion, political preference, or sexual orientation they are.

I don't know which group it is, but I believe God loves all people.

  Good for you. I have had to stare down and verbally chastise people all of my son's life.

When you love someone you feel their pain when stupid people find it necessary to express and/or show hostility towards someone whom they do not know and in most cases have never seen before.

Walking the walk

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Me and my daughter were sitting watching tv when,I extended an invite to walk on the treadmill/eliptical.She quickly wrinkled her brow and gave me the STANK-EYE!Mom...she mumbled cant you be still and relax?No,I laughed lets boogie to a dance cd then!So we shook,rattled and rolled ourselves to exhaustion and slept like babies.LOL...She actually said she wanted me to wait for her to dance again tonight.I am thrilled and hope she will stick to her word.I just returned from a trip with DH and we had so much FUN!DD wanted me to come to get her right away.Instead I had her wait and i had a romantic evening with dinner a movie and a walk in the park. emoticonSUSAN

It all started with a big bang!

Thursday, August 09, 2012

In the midst of home demo.The fridge/stove/table/microwave have been re-homed for what I thought was temporary.The flooring crew were due at any moment and here I am up to my eyeballs in water.The water heater blew up like a bomb.Water was everywhere and the shop vac was nowhere to be found!Im mopping water when the doorbell rings.I ushered the crew into the kitchen and would you believe,Nobody had done a moisture reading?They tore up half my floor only to decide they were'nt able to proceed until the floor was 100% dry?So,They promised to return one week later???I had about lost my mind when the appointed time was from 1-2 yesterday and when should he choose to arrive?9am yesterday!!!Sorry he mumbled we'll have to reschedule.I got in my car and burned rubber getting to the improvement store home-depot.Those were the sweetest,caring,helpful people I've ever met! I was angry,red faced and tired.They did such a good job cheering me up.The water heater was a different story.It turned out to be a pipe that blew but,we were without water for 4 days.I gave up on the plumbers and bought a new heater and paid my neighbor to install it and saved $300...we were showering outside in the hose using a camping shower...My 18 year old DD said..Are you nuts Mom?I just laughed and said then STINK!She got over it and used that shower... emoticonI hope ya'll are doing better than me...lotsa emoticonSUSAN

    I think using the camping shower was genious. Sorry to hear you were without water in the house for four days. Good for you for taking matters and not waiting for the others to come back. My goodness they had to start ripping up your floor and then decide they needed for the floor to dry-really

    I agree with your comment about Home Depot. They have great people working there. I've been to HD in Newport News VA, in Decatur, IL, in Bourbonnais, IL, in Branson, MO and Springfield, MO and have consistently found great service.
