Day of Silence
This kind of thing makes me mad. Yes, I'm a Christian. No, I'm not gay. No, I don't believe that being gay is right. Yet, I don't exactly have a huge problem with gay rights, especially this one. The right to not be beat up because you're different, even if the difference is that you're doing something that people see as sinful. Think about it. Look at the things that I personally don't do, and then imagine who I would have to harass and bully if I followed that standard.
There would be girls who wear pants and cut their hair, as well as those who wear makeup and jewelry. There would be people who use bad language. There would be people who don't wait until they're married to have sex. There would be Trinitarians, Jews, Muslims, Methodists, Presbyterians, Catholics. The list is too long to put on here.
Maybe you don't think it's right. I don't either. I have friends who are, and I've told them that I don't think it's right. But they're still my friends. So if I'm not going to stand up for their right by being quiet all day, at least I can try to use the talking for some good while I'm at it.
