If I wore a red MAGA hat, would you hate me?
If I told you that I voted for Hillary and thought Trump was an illegitimate president, would you block or unfriend me?
If I was steadfast Pro-Life, would you wish me dead?
What if I was gay, would you see me different, so different that I deserved to have physical pain inflicted upon my person?
The fact that I believe God saved me from drug addiction and a heart attack and gave me a second chance at life, does that disqualify me from acceptance in your eyes?
What if I was the person that helped you out of a hard time; the person that gave you money when you had no where else to turn; the person that helped you move when no one else showed up; the person that gave you the encouragement you needed to follow your dreams; would you still turn your back on me when you learned that I didn’t follow your particular brand of political dogma?
How about this instead…what if we all agreed to find some common ground, agreed to love each other and agreed to never stop fighting to support our friends and family despite our differences, wouldn’t this world be a better place? Wouldn’t our world, the one we live in, the one that exists for us everyday, wouldn’t it be a better place if we all really loved each other despite our differences?
I am so tired of seeing people, not just people…but my friends, the ones that I’ve invested so much of my heart and love and energy turn on each other and spit hate and bile and gross putrid rage when what they should be doing is opening their arms and offering love and understanding.
What if you and your son disagreed on abortion, would you hate him or love him? Well, we are all brothers and sisters in the eyes of God so start treating each other as such. I will fight for you if you fight for me. I will fight for you even if you refuse to fight for me. I will love you without condition, will you do the same for me?
