So in trying to make this wordpress thing show what I want to it to show I may have sent a post twice. Sorry about that, if anyone was wondering why then it was just user error on my part most likely. Something got my attention and if you have been reading the news then maybe you already know where I am going with this.
Orlando. Never been there, and personally too humid for me. People who do live there had a horrible event unfold in their own backyard. A shooting of a nature undescribable by many against a crowd that just wanted to have a fun night. Someone had gone in to a club popular to many, and shot it up.
I felt mad, and I never been to Orlando. Personally I am not someone who believes in a homosexual lifestyle. I never got it. There are some things that everyone can understand though. If someone is happy in a lifestyle that does not outright hurt them or others then who am I to say they can’t. It is pretty hard to be happy in this life it seemes so if some people can do it by going a different route then groovy. Friends of mine as come out as gay, and it did not matter one bit, heroes of mine came out of the closet and it didn’t change one bit. I learned something new about them, but that didn’t change them.
Which is why Orlando gets to me not just for how much pain it has brought upon others. Some people think that because it was a lgbt club supposedly then it was okay. I don’t care what kind of a club it is. Someone killed people’s sons, daughters, best friends, squadmates, and a portion of the population believes because of one detail in their life that it is okay.
I came from a a life that some would seem as none too friendly. I have had had been shot at more then three dozen times without being a soldier or a police officer or even working in a job that makes you get close to guns. If there was a problem with someone you went to them and you hashed it out. sometimes with words and other times in more physical means. You fought it out and whoever walked away was the victor.
Now with some saying those people deserved it there are some calling for action against Muslims in America. For those who read my post about the black lives matter thing you can guess where this is going. WE. ALL. MATTER. Some in different ways then others with some being different value to others. It is not an Islamic attack it is an extremist group with no other way to speak except with guns and that is the saddest show of their intelligence. Life has been too bloody for my taste, and now others who never learned how to handle it get thrust head first in the grief just because of someone’s preferred fuckbuddies.
I am so angry though, not because of just the action but for the responses I see. Other then those trying to help or those sorry for what happeneed they seem to be matched with how some group should be punished.
Muslims are not to be punished. The qu’ran speaks how taking one life is like killing mankind and how one should compete in doing good. Christians who think because it was wrong to be gay that they should be shot can answer me this, what about the portions about treating others as brothers, loving happily, and allowing others to learn their own way with their own interpretation of a spiratual being.
LGBTQ are not to be punished. I will not be mad at someone just because they like a different something then me. If you like vanilla ice cream, and I like strawberry then enjoy your vanilla and let me have my strawberry. It sounds really silly when people get hurt, but that is really the argument boiled down to base function at least to me.
For me from this point, sorry about the rant.
