Jamey Rodemeyer, 14-Year-Old Boy, Commits Suicide After Gay Bullying, Parents Carry On Message (VIDEO)

Commented Oct 1, 2011 at 09:29:09 in Parents

“Jesus Christ died not only for Christians.
Jesus Christ died for all mankind.
Whoever comes to me in any way cast out.
Jesus accepts us as we are.
And nobody chooses to be homosexual.
People are simply born that way.
Each an every respect differences as Jesus was able to respect and love every human being.
Even those who persecuted Him
God has not given the right to judge nor condemn anyone.
That power belongs only to him and to anyone else.
But remember that He gave us an obligation.
We must love others as we love ourselves.
I'm Brazilian. Here in my country we are learning that God's love extends to everyone.
We are not hypocrites, we know that homosexuality is a sin
But we also learn that Jesus is our advocate who intercedes for us
And forgive us simply because He loves us.
He loves the whites, blacks, homosexuals, Catholics, Christians.
He loves everyone.
And perhaps we are greater than God to have the right to hate someone when in fact He commands us to do the opposite?
Love the Lord your God above all things
Love your neighbor as yourself.
We have to relearn what love is.

“You have completely contradicted yourself throughout your post. The best example is your statement: "And nobody chooses to be homosexual, people are simply born that way" ... which is in direct contradiction to the ludicrous statement: "We know that homosexuality is a sin." So in essence you are saying that homosexuals are both born that way and born as sinners (?).

Let me set you straight. First off, homosexuality is NOT a sin. But you know what IS? Posting HATE on a thread that is about a child who committed suicide. You are part of the problem.”

“I can't prove or disprove your deity is real - Anymore than you can prove your God is real. Why? Because you can not prove or disprove a *thought* based on an ancient text giving you the/a *feeling* it is true - based on not one single fact recorded in human history. None. Not everyone believes in christianity. Why should people not of your faith suffer because of it?”

“Well meant comment, I am sure. But homosexuality is not a sin. If that is who God made you, how can it be a sin?”
