Equality for All

marriage-equality

Before I start, I just want to make clear that I am an outlier, an oddball, misfit, unpopular, strange, peculiar person. I am not gay however; I do know what it is like not to be welcome.

That being said, it really bums me out to see black people, especially black Christians speak out so harshly against the LGBT community.

The news of same-sex marriage becoming legal nationwide is a great thing. However, I have seen a lot of posts and articles about black Christians speaking out against the SCOTUS decision.

You are entitled to your opinion and your faith, however watching black people use a religion that helped them through so many struggles to justify holding down another group in just heartbreaking.

Personally, like I said before, I have nothing to lose, I am already not a socially popular person so going against the group and supporting freedom, and equality for all is not that big of a deal for me.

I just wish that more would come over to this side of things and help make me feel like just a little less of an misfit for once.
