The news story Lesbian couple: Restaurant owner hands them letter condemning homosexuality tells us a handwritten letter was handed to a lesbian couple as they were leaving a restaurant.  The letter is as follows:

God said in the last days that man and wom[a]n would be lover of self, more [than] the lover of God.

That man and woman would have unnatural [affection] for one another. Then, the coming of the Son of Man, who is Jesus. So please, look at your life. See how it hurt[s] everyone around you. And ask the Lord to open your eye[s] before it [is] to[o] late.

The Love of Christ

P.S. my daughter also was gay. It destroy[ed] her life and my grandson.

My reply would be thank you but I’m Christian and I know Jesus loves me He and tells me God loves me too.  Christ cured the lover of a Centurion of his sickness without saying a word and this is a loving example that I worship not the garbage you just handed me.

Please think about this for a moment – God created a universe of extreme complexity.   This complexity can be seen here on Earth where no two snowflakes or no two fingerprints are alike.  Why would God only create people with the same sexual orientation when he doesn’t in the animal world where it’s said that over 1500 species have examples of same-sex attraction?  It’s just another reflection of His love.

The postscript of the letter was meaningless.  How did her being gay destroy her?  Did he help his daughter and her son with love and support when they needed it or did he shun her because she was gay?  Given his attitude to the lesbian couple I suspect the latter.

Jesus made it perfectly clear – love your neighbour as yourself.  Not only is this line simple enough for all of us to understand he enforces it by saying that it’s one of the two most important commandments.  Are you listening?
