Blacks have to get off the fence on homophobia

Sometimes when we deny people their humanity we push them in a dark closet and when they are kept in that closet they sometimes do bad things to themselves and others.
 
This is an opportunity for Blacks to speak up and support the basic human rights of their homosexual, transgendered and two-spirited brothers and sisters amongst us.  Where is the love?  If you are Christian where is the love of God?  What is driving your chariot people, is it hate or love.  One of the most compassionate things we can do for another human being and to be fully human according to the gurus of the past and the most brilliant spiritual minds of the planet, is to want more for others than we do for ourselves.
No one is asking you to change your sexual orientation, all this community of people and the civil society are asking is for you to show your humanity to all people.  People deserve to be who they want to be regardless of what we might think.  We are not asking you to approve something that is illegal for adults to do.  Adults ought to be free to engage in loving relationships with other adults.
What eats your goat?  Those of you who are so against this, what is it to you?  What are you afraid of? As yourself the question and you will see that your fears are groundless.
 
For blacks, refusing to champion the civil and human rights of people with different sexual orientations be they asexual, transsexual, homosexual, bi-sexual or two-sexual, these are not sex objects but human beings deserving the same freedoms as adult humans in our society.  Remember when Blacks were dehumanized and robbed of their rights, remember how that felt? How did you feel?  Did you feel human? Did you think it was right that others labelled blacks less than human and therefore deserved less rights that they accorded to their lap dogs and cats? No it isn’t right and there were many people including homosexuals who stood up and fight against the dehumanization of Blacks.  Those who know the pain must not be silent, God would not want that.  God is love and we are part of that divine, so let us love.  If being of a different sexual orientation and expressing it is wrong, then let us leave that for the Master to decide, let us focus on why we are here having this human experience to love everyone and want more for everyone. 
Lord make me an instrument of that peace, where there is hatred let me sow love. 
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon:
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope
where there is darkness, light
where there is sadness, joy
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
