“A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
I read an article about love a few months ago, and meant Â to write about it then, but I forgot. Â Then a followup to the article appeared Â today, and I just had to pass it on.
The original article is “I’m Christian, Unless You’re Gay” on the blog Single Dad Laughing. Â It talks about Â hate, rejection, and unconditional vs. conditional love: “I’m Christian, unless you’re gay.” Â It was a powerful read, and I highly recommend it.
But the one that blew me away is this response. Â A teenager was asked (in school) to write an essay about “I’m Christian, unless you’re gay”, and his mother started ranting on about the evils of homosexuality. Â He wrote an incredibly courageous and powerful essay in reply, and the article talks about his essay and her response. Â It’s well worth reading.
