It’s gay pride month.

If you’re homophobic, please use this month to ask yourself why.

Even if our religious beliefs speak out against homosexual behavior, ask yourself if that’s truly right. Shouldn’t religion be about acceptance, no matter who someone is or who they choose to love? We don’t have to like it, but we don’t have to be against it either. Shouldn’t religion seek to embrace others, not ostracize them in the name of God or another higher power?

Live and let live.

There is a lot of stuff going on today that we may not understand, and maybe we’re not meant to – but we can be compassionate, kind and tolerant.

In celebration of all my gay and lesbian friends, I support you. What a gift your friendship is in my life.
