Yes, Jesus Loves Us

To Tim Williams

Here's what I have to say to you, Bud. Why act like you're trying to understand other people? Why even bother? Why not just come out as what you are, a little guilt-tripping, I'm better than you because I've got a penis kind of ignoramous trying to pass for Christian. You give Christians a bad name with your literal interpretation of the Bible. You have no idea of the spititual interpretation and you are perpetuating hatred of minorities.

Jesus message was of love.... love for everybody, not just those you aren't afraid of. You are way off the track.

Nobody has to prove they have a right to be on this planet. Nobody has to prove to you they are OK because they are different from you. Lesbians are human. We deserve to be here. We are not the child molesters.....We don't drag half of the young people in this country off to get killed every ten years or so. We commit very few crimes as a know like stealing, robbing 7-11's and such pplacs ? We don't break into cars and pull the radios out. We don't harrass hets on the street that are holding hands. In fact, we don't bother anybody very often.

We don't drown children or beat the living hell out of them, or sexually molest them. A lesbian isn't a threat to you.

Do you know what we do, Mr Holy Man? We live in houses and hang the pictures we paint on the walls. We sew. We read books and go for walks. We watch out for the little old ladies and men who live by us. We walk their dogs when they have to go to the hospital for cataract surgery. We watch movies and eat popcorn these same little old people make us in their microwave ovens because we don't have one.

We work. We are good workers. We come in to work and do our jobs. We don't screw around. We just work. We smile. We are nice to customers and co-workers. We are damn smart. There's the one thing you have to be threatened by...our brains. We are generally speaking very smart. So that you'd better watch out for.

So there.
