Each One Teach One...

Deaf are the Ears that wears the Crown.
Ya know, it wasn’t the Gay Pride Parades, the Rainbows, or the talk shows that changed my mind. It wasn’t the books, the Christian Pastors, nor the Media….that made me take a second look and then change my stance on Gay Marriage. For all that there was going on in society at the time, from the Aides epidemic of the 80’s to the Civil Union struggles of this decade, I maintained the Christian Authority that Homosexuality was WRONG…and I took the moral high road that, “I’ll be your friend, but I won’t support your life”. I couldn’t have been more arrogant if I had wore a crown. In the end, it was one person. One small, (not so quite) person who shared with me her story of humiliation, and any moral Superiority I had felt before went out the window. I realized that Jesus may not have encountered a gay man (Gosh I wish He had of), but the Bible is CLEAR in what we must do….. we must LOVE…..DUH. Except….we’re not going to talk about THAT….:)
How I changed from my Saulian stance toward the Homosexual Community to the Liberal, Left-leaning jerk I am today is nothing extraordinary. The woman I call friend, share me the tale of the day she was brutally outted, then ousted from a Sunday Service. It pissed me off. In hindsight, I marveled at how one person, brought down my Goliath Stronghold. Then I realized that that’s how we change the world. You don’t have to agree with my ideals, I actually don’t care, but the way to change society is to change one person, and that journey that begins with one set of willing ears. I may not clearly understand the Lord’s Will or Stance on Homosexuality but I know what it ISN’T. Shoving the graphic pictures, name calling, political ads, the AM radio DJ’s vying for listenership, the pomp and circumstance of Pastors….NONE of that is going to change a mind. You can show all the graphic ads of animal abuse you want (If you do, I will delete you), but if all your friends are anit-animal abusers…you will reach, and change…no one. Change comes from the heart, but it must first go through the ears, and that starts with the mouth. Each one, teach one…that’s how you bring change….and THAT is how I end this status. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Tuesday.
