While I am at work I will let this link sit here and have people read it, then I will start writing my post around 3 or 3:30pm. I am clearly against the thoughts of these people that would do this so the post will be filled with rage against religion and the stupid people that abuse it.
What does one do with ignorant that use religion as a basis to cause harm to others or be an annoyance to many? Freedom of speech comes into play here but so does respect for others. It is fine to hate homosexuals or lesbians, but do things like the above is just down right cruel to the family and those that mourn Heath Ledger.
Who even actually knows if Heath was gay? That does not seem to be the point of their protest, the fact that he starred in a movie about two gay cowboys does not mean he is gay. It may come as a shock to some of those people but actors on screen are acting! :O I never knew actors were paid to play a role on screen that is completely different from themselves. Holy shit my world has just exploded.
Sorry I got off topic. These people should not have the right to do what they are doing, to disrupt someone's funeral to force your views upon others in attendance is just wrong. To protest openly and be so hateful towards what is a choice that you have no right to try and change is wrong. I am agnostic in my faith to the degree that I believe there is a higher power out there, I will not place the names that have been given to it by society but I will live my life the way I wish it and if I appear in the afterlife and am judged as living my life wrong I will accept that fate.
The reason for that is because the fate I am given is due to the choices in my life. I know I lived my life as best I could I was nice to those I met, I helped those that I could, I did not harm anyone fatally, I judged others, but I kept that secret. Everyone judges people upon first sight, based on looks, mannerisms and reaction to things around them and how they interact with people.
Judgment...A great word that is used a lot by the fanatical like they themselves have the right to call down on anyone what their final fate will be. I have never read the bible so I will not speak of that, but in my eyes being homosexual or bisexual or lesbian is not wrong, it is your life choice that makes you happy and that is all that life is about, being happy.
If one passes into the afterlife and is sent to a place called Hell because he was gay then the greater power is not as forgiving as many believe, I will not believe that one that created everything and gave us free will would then damn us because we have chosen to lay with another person of the same sex. Judge by the crimes against others, not because of lifestyle choices.
I am sorry, I have lost the point of the post and will end it here after saying one more thing. Using your religion to bully others into what you consider acceptable views is not right. Never force another person to accept your views and do not take offense when they try and teach you of their views. That just makes you close minded and foolish.
