Love Wins

In light of the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision on marriage equality, I’ve wondered if I should/would address the issue at all on my blog. There are enough voices clanging through the interwebs and I’m not a fan of noisy blogging.

That said, I read an article today that really speaks to how I feel about the issue at hand and I thought I’d share it here. I hope we can have respectful dialogue…if you want to have dialogue at all about the issue. Maybe you’re done dialoging. In that case, just leave a comment and tell me your favorite Easter candy.

Either way, let’s remember that above all else, love wins. Love is the thing that always, always wins. It’s also important to remember that disagreement does not indicate a lack of love. 

There is no law that says we must all agree with one another in order to love one another well.

 

This is an issue without an easy answer, as much as many people want it to seem easy. But healthy, open dialogue is always a step in the right direction. No matter what the Supreme Court decides, I pray we can all remember that love wins.

And my favorite Easter Candies are those Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups shaped like Easter Eggs.

The Article: How Might Christians Respond To The Question of Homosexual Marriage?

Comments

  1. GREAT article! We have been discussing and dissecting this issue for quite some time. I feel like God is giving ME some clarity. It won’t be everyone’s opinion, but I think I am breathing “easier” about it. I refuse to debate or argue it. I still have places that I can’t figure out, but I am trusting that if/when I need those answers I will have them.

    Oh, and Cadbury Caramel Eggs.

    • That’s the same article I posted. 😉 I like Cadberry Caramels, too, but I can only handle one a season. They are sweet! 😀

  3. Fantastic article. Completely how I feel on this issue. Love will win. Thank you for sharing!

  4. thanks for sharing. Love love love love… it all comes down to love. But love held strong and true amidst Biblical conviction. How hard. What a challenge. But o what a loving, helping God… as we LOVE.

  5. Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs – YES!!! Also MY Favorite!!

    I read a great article today that was presented by a leader of the church I belong to…(which is a Christian based faith btw) – I am greatly paraphrasing his words – but in a nutshell, he said ..it does not matter if we are for -or against -gay marriage, nor should it matter what our religious beliefs may be – we are ALL human beings and children of a loving Father in Heaven and we must treat one another as Jesus Christ would treat his children – with Love and respect no matter one another’s earthly choices. It was stated much better than that, but LOVE ONE ANOTHER – it is not up to us to be judge and jury.
