God loved the two girls at the end of my street.

Everywhere they went, they went together,
hand-in-hand so they didn't get lost,
laughing at everything and nothing
all at once.

He was so proud of them.
They never stole, they never swore,
they brushed their teeth twice a day
and always said their prayers.

It was a gift, said the townspeople,
that two girls as perfect as they were
were born in the same place.
an even greater gift, said they,
that those two were the best of friends.


Long nights spent giggling in rooms with closed doors
was a good thing, back then.

One day,
halfway between their houses
and in the middle of the street,
they realized that they loved each other.

A gaze lingered a moment too long,
a heart beat a little too fast...

They kissed for the first time on a park bench,
hidden from the rest of the world.

God doesn't love them anymore.
Basically how people think when they say that God hates gays... :X

EDIT: Just to get one thing straight, this is a PRO gay poem. I've had some people comment and I don't think they got that...

And HOLY COW, guys! I love you all so much, thank you for the favorites! :tighthug: Free hugs for all of you!

I don't think God hates gays... its just some people who says it because THEY hate gays. They just want a damn excuse to not make it happen by using our BIG ROLE MODEL of good. Hell they made have just put it in there in the bible to make sure it never happens. They don't know what LOVE really is when they think gays are sinning for loving someone despite their own gender? >:( It doesn't make sense if God actually hates gays. It makes me mad thinking how unfair it is how a lot of people just treat gays as criminals and delusioned people.

That's true :( Its just an explanation how we began with man and woman and reproduce in the new beginning of human race (a very simple story to explain how we began in a religious way). I think gays existed back then when this story was created but it's just not considered HOW we began. You need male and female to make a baby... unless were completely different species that are not even male and female, then we wouldn't have this religious problem :P Remember back then they didn't know much about much about science or medical science today. How else could they explain it back then? Stories in a religious writing they know.

Still... its just a story that everyone takes too seriously over the years and puts it hard on gays. Male couples and female couples can't make babies together biologically. Its actually consider survival to reproduce. They either adopt or in some cases get a sperm donor for female couples. Maybe that's why its considered sinful because its unnatural? For a real simple story can really affect the whole human race's perspective of gays. Ironically after all our scientific discoveries that being gay is what happens to ALL animals and is normal, we still take this very old story of Adam and Eve too seriously. And there has to be more than one Adam and Eve ... otherwise we all are brothers and sisters and... our genes become deformed and sick biologically. You need fresh genes in order for you to be a healthy human. Remember what happened in royal inbreeding? 


You spelled it right by the way :) And sorry I wrote this too long. :( I'm not religious but its just an opinion from observation.

I'm not religius ether, but I come from a religius family, thats were I have pict it up.
I think it is more like many people hated gay because they were different and ended a legitimat way to hate them so they turnd to religion and twisted the words of the bibel to state what the wanted like:

"you se the story of adan and eve a girl and a boy, that most mean that the ideal human wood love the oposite sex and therefore gay people are eveil and must go to hell!"

or somthing like that.

just my opinion! ^^

I'm pretty sure the bible says that "There is nothing you can do to make God love you less."

I've been Bisexual for about 4 years now. I don't know how many times I've heard God hate Bi's. God forgives and everyone has a soulmate in my opinion. They never said that person would be of oposite gender.

My mother hated the fact that I was interested in girls. She "Made" me change who I was. Keep in my her sister is Lesbian. And my step dads brother is Gay. They claim I'm confused Its just a fase. If it was a fase then why doesn't it go away, because I don't want it to.

When mom isn't looking, I'm me. When she is looking it's like I'm wearing a mask, I absolutely hate it. Why hide something, that doesn't need to be hidden. Because people won't accept it? They don't realize there is more people like me out there.

I'm still interested in guys (currently in a relationship with one) :)) So they shouldn't worry. I'm still me. <33

Just felt i needed to respond to this. I just realized that I'm bi, and I love a girl. I haven't told my mom, because I'm afraid she'll do the same thing... But I thoroughly enjoy loving her :) her and all my friends still accept me as me, and I treasure that~ :')

Here's the thing love. You're mom may not like it..but when you think about it..she can't change who you are. And if you love this girl then be with her. You're mom can't change the fact that you have strong feelings for her. She can't crawl into your head and change the way you feel. Sure your going to run into people who don't approve of your sexuality. but they can't do anything about it, because you are your own person...and that's that. With time your mom will learn to accept your decision to be bisexual. My mom did, My real father is actually engaged to a bisexual woman, and my step-dad admitted to me the other day that he didn't mind at the time he lied to me and made a big deal about my sexuality just because my mother told him to. With time she'll learn to accept it. She might be mad for a couple hours...but when it comes down to it she loves you just the same. <3

Yeah, I've had the exact same problems. But I've come to realize, my girlfriend loves me, and my best friends love me, so what else matters? Sure, I wish my mom would love me, even my being a lesbian, and hopefully she will come around, but I have a great support system too. I'm glad you found who you are and someone who accepts you, I wish you much happiness! ^^

We always have trouble being ourselves around people who don't accept us. We just have to realize that some people are close-minded and that they will never be anything more than that. The best thing to do is to hold your head up high no matter what they say about you. You are you and not someone else, so why act like someone else? Don't let them condemn your specialness.

I wish you luck with your mother. Hopefully she sees that love is never a bad thing...

I agree with all these comments. God does not hate anyone. God loves us all. I don't know if homosexuality is a sin, but even if it is, all sins are equal in God's eyes. Everyone struggles with some sin, be it lying, murder, stealing, whatever, but God loves us in our imperfections. This poem is beautiful, and I'm not gay or lesbian but I know some really great people who are and I hate all the closed-minded bigots who say things like "God hates fags" (direct quote from Pat Robinson). The Bible says we should not judge each other, and it also says that it is not God's will that anyone perish, but that all would know Him.

Just my two cents worth...

No offense to everyone saying, "A true Christian would know that God loves us all," but in the Old Testament it says that any man who lies with a man as he lies with a woman has done something detestable. I'm by no means saying that this is correct, I think that's total bull to be honest, but what I'm saying is how can anyone who has actually read the Old Testament argue that God loves us all when pretty much all he does is say we should kill anyone who is gay, of a different faith, works on the Sabbath, ect.... To be honest I'm not sure what the New Testament says about this, but I do know that in the Old Testament it says that God's law is perfect and should never be changed, so uh... yeah.

Good point... I could go find all the reasons why homosexuality ISN'T condemned in the Bible, but that would just make me seem like a broken record... :XD: And just because it's in the Old Testament... I don't know. It makes me weary. :lol: Thank you for commenting! :D
