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.

    If you do not have love, you have nothing....glad you are strong and told them what you felt. I won't be surprised if some others thought about what you said and left too. emoticon emoticon

    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.

    Great! I am happy it is not MY group.
I don't know which group it is, but I believe God loves all people.
I try my best to always avoid negative, toxic people.

    I admire your courage and clarity! People like this are always looking to bolster their belief that they are right by recruiting others to endorse their beliefs. It is stupid, narrow and wrong! You GO!

  The best thing is you get to choose who you will hang with.
If a group isn't a good match, onward.

  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.

    I'm so sorry you've had to experience this. As a member of the LGBT community myself, I've seen this bigotry first-hand. There are plenty of other loving people out there, though!
