This election has prompted me to feel many things and ask myself several questions. One of those questions is, “What kind of person do I want to be?”
The answer is I don’t want to be a person of inaction. I don’t want to not utilize my talents (as limited as they may be for now). I want to be someone who is kind, loving and shares that love and kindness responsibly. This podcast is a small part of my attempt at that.
In case you’ve missed “Rev.” Jerry Falwell’s repulsive comments, watch this video first before reading…
Like your hero, Donald Trump, I’m going to speak my mind…
Jerry, like your father, you’rethe real sodomite and the Bible agrees with me. Ezekiel 16:49 reads, “Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.”
I realize calling you and your late father a sodomite isn’t kind or compassionate but frankly, I don’t give a damn. I highly doubt my little blog and uninfluential voice will change your heart but remaining silent when confronted with your unconcerned comments about other humans is not a luxury I’m willing to partake in.
Jerry, when did encouraging your students and your broader audience to shoot Muslims become a part of Christ’s mission? Did I miss something after Matthew 22:39 when Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”???
Your arrogance, indulgence in fear, and unconcerned attitude towards people of another faith has revealed the condition of your heart. Like your father, it is full of pride and fear.
I would say that I will pray for you Jerry but I don’t pray. I will hope for you though. I hope the same for me as I hope for you… that we will continuously let go of our fears, lay down our pride, unlearn our ignorance, recognize our selfishness and embrace love for others and ourselves as the cure to our suffering.
I hope that you will be less of a sodomite and more Christ like because that’s something our world could really use, more love.
You may or may not have noticed this. More than likely, you didn’t. At the end of the day, who cares! You have probably been busy with family, friends, work, school and just good ‘ol personal time. You’ve been busy creating your own story and writing this chapter of your life.
This past Spring, I chose to delete my blog after hearing a message of, “being addicted to your story.” The only way to stop being addicted to your story is to write a new one. So, I decided to do just that.
This new story and chapter has led me to becoming physically fit, strengthening relationships, maturing as an individual, and moving across the country with someone that I love very much. This chapter is still new to me and unfolding. However, I look forward to sharing it with you and writing about the lessons I’ve learned so far.
This new blog (AzairahSpeaks 2.0… lol) will be dedicated to creating new stories. If you’ve successfully created a new story for yourself and would like to share the lessons you’ve learned on this blog, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
