Hello Soulforce, I am Eric. I had been cruising around on the forums of this community for a while, trying to make myself feel better by hearing the voices of other people talk about God and gays in the same post without spitting hate. Due to the fact that I am shy, it was only because of this stressful upcoming election that I decided to join and up the number of members that believe in opposing the stain against an all loving God of current "Christian" beliefs by one.
Coming from a conservative family and having been raised as a Christian, it is strange and hard how I am going against the grain- against the beliefs that African Americans are monkeys, that Mexicans are illegal and will work for cheap, that the Jews deserved what they got in the Holocaust, that gays are sick, sick people and rape others with their eyes. It scares me that I am a plant coming from a gardener of such a mindset of people different than the "smart Chinese" and I hope to unearth more prejudices rooted deep within my being and cleanse them out. At 18 years old, I am learning and I hope that we may learn together how to accept others and look upon the diversity of our world with a positive light. Praise the Lord.
Okay, so now that I finished rambling, wassup Soulforce?
