Thoughts after church after a long absence

The Bible makes it clear.  You are only allowed to love, not to judge.

If people like Mike Pence have to voice their religious view that homosexuality is wrong, they must give it the balance it is due.  By that mean, if they want to spend ten minutes on gay people, they must first preach for 50 minutes on tolerance. they must condemn physical and verbal violence against everybody.  

10% of sermons can be on homosexuality only if 90% of the sermons are on divorce and adultery.

Christians must realize that their beliefs are shared by people that want to harm gay people. They want to thwart their pursuit of life liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Many religious leaders and followers do speak out against judgement. Many do not. I am saying speak out against equality in marriage, etc, if you must. However your belief that it hurts the institution I of marriage should be secondary to your fight against the real hurts of God’s people.

Mike Pence should not be known for his stance on homosexuality. He should e known for his preaching against the hatred that is racism and homophobia, and even the atheist? Or am I wrong?  Would Jesus look like Mike Pence if he came back?

True religious people should be at the forefront of teaching tolerance.  In all aspects. The poor and the people on welfare. The people of color. They must condemn those that are Christian and do not make tolerance and love a priority.

I’m not saying that people are not living beyond their means but how much of living paycheck to paycheck is caused by the 2008 recession.  How much is caused by corporations maximizing profits (including buying politician) Union being busted while medical insurance and renting/ Homeownership is so expensive
