‘Shut up or get out!’

Rob Bennett September 7th, 2011

One week it is a statement of proof about dinosaurs living with humans; the next week is one or more replies disputing this.

Yet, all I want people to consider is this: Do the Kerns really hate homosexuality so much that they would wish for dinosaurs to replace it? Forget about the Bible or science for a second, and ask yourself as a human being: Does it really matter if we lived with dinosaurs? Do we really have to make a person’s life miserable just because they love in a different way?

Let’s talk about how well our city has worked together during these hard times — straight, gay, transgender and even those few asexual people out there. We have all played a role in keeping our economy running while the rest of the country has had major problems.

If you are an Oklahoman who does not want to see a fellow Okie happy and healthy, no matter who they are, then please shut up or get out!

Some people are just happier when making others miserable.  Ironicaly they tend to do so in the name of a loving God.  

I left the church after I began to feel these counter Christian influences pressing on me.  I don't need someone else telling me what's right.  I feel it in my heart.  And making someone feel like shit because of whom they choose to love does not elevate my spirit.
