Stop Telling Me That I Am Going To Hell Because I Support The LGBTQIA+ Community

I have a problem with people telling me that my beliefs are wrong and that I am going to hell. I have a problem with being told that because I support and advocate for rights for the LGBTQIA+ community that I am going to hell.

Here's the thing you're the one that is wrong. Every single HUMAN should have the exact same rights. It absolutely doesn't give you the right to tell someone that they are going to hell because their beliefs are different from yours.

My major in school is social work. My future career is going to like it or not revolve around things like this. I will have a clients at several different points in time that are going to come out to me as part of the community. I am absolutely going to advocate for them as will be my job to do.

So here's the thing if you are going to tell me that either I am going to hell because I support the LGBTQIA+ community and believe that they should have all the same rights as I do, save your breath and don't say it to me.

Telling me that myself, my friends, or my family are going to hell for being in a community that should 1000 percent have the same rights as I or for advocating for those who should be allowed to have rights is the fastest way to get deleted from my life.

I will support my friends and family and my own beliefs until the day that I die and I don't believe that me supporting them is going to make me go to hell. I will stand up and say that I believe that every single person should have the right to get married to who ever they want to get married to because love is love.

For anyone around me who hasn't come out yet and identifies as apart of this community I am a safe person to come out to and I will support you and love you until the day that I die.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
