A friend just sent me this video and I’m just horrified by it. It is hard to believe that in this day and age people are still thinking and acting this way, but sadly this is a daily truth for far too many kids and teenagers all over the world.
Daniel, the guy in the video came out as gay to his family. They said he ‘chose’ to be gay and that he is a disgrace according to the word of ‘God’! Well, let me tell you something, I do not believe that being gay, lesbian or whatever is a choice! But I do know for sure that hatred is a choice! A damn wrong one and damn easy one!
Be sure that God, by all religious and spiritual teaching IS not equal hate! It is your choice to hate your own son, brother, sister, daughter, friend or neighbour. Yes, neighbour - the one that God himself tells you to love as yourself. Do you truly believe that God would want you to act any differently towards your own flesh blood?!
For the past 9 years I’ve been a devoted student and follower of Kabbalah, and I have never ever heard anything that is supporting that kind of hatred and attitude. This has nothing to do with ‘God’, but has everything to do with people taking the word of God and play with it as they please! I follow God, the Light - which to me is all good, endless love and sharing. The people in the video follow God as well, which to them is hatred, fear, punishment and so on.
This is NOT about God! This about hatred!
Please spread this video and let everyone know that even today, millions of LGBT kids, teens and even adults still have to live a life of horror for being who they are!
