Religion vs LGBTQ?...in small towns

By Michael Newsome on FB

Tuesday night leading into Wednesday, the small community of Prichard, West Virginia seemed to be in controversy with the community of Fort Gay, West Virginia, that later led to a Kentucky community getting involved, too.

The issue was the rights or no rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transexual community locally.

After many opinions were traded back and forth on a post on Facebook, that led to the situation spiraling out of control.

Social media buzz kept the controversy going into Wednesday night around 11:30pm. There were individuals from, Floyd Co., Ky, all the way up to Charleston, WVa. involved in the battle for opinion on religion vs the LGBTQ. Some people made FB threats “to call the police”.

After Christian people spoke up for their beliefs in God and the Bible, others defended their right to freedom of speech defending LGBTQ.

The post was later deleted after some 475 comments in 3 hours, struck some nerves, (after involving people’s families and children) to help the controversy die down.

The back and forth barbs led to more then 500 independent posts on social media including Instagram, and Twitter about religion vs LGBTQ in the Tri-State within hours stirring up even more controversy.

No crimes have been committed at this time.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it moves forward...

I think some Christians get a little bit confused on what the Bible says. Yes, Christians should LOVE everyone but they don't have to love the ways a person acts. In other words, they can love the person but doesn't have to love their sin!!!
If someone wants to be gay and think that God approves of those actions, they will find out the results on judgment day!!! Good luck with that.

If God destroyed all homosexuals, then why are they still here? Homosexuality has been taking place for thousands of years. How ignorant are you???

So...people can be born with both sexual organs, disease, mental and physical defects, but you can’t be born gay??? It amazes me how ignorant some people are. Think beyond your small mindset and actually try to use your common sense. We can be born with tons of defects and gifts, but you can’t be born gay??? Get real.

Everyone deserves the same rights. No mater skin color, religion or sexual orientation. We are all human beings. People should be able to live their lives the way they want. Love is love. How can that be wrong. You never hear about gay couples bashing straight couples. Its always these so called “Christians”. If you believe in the Bible so much. why don't you try loving thy neighbor. The world would be a much happier place if people mind their business. If it isn't hurting you, who cares?

Well folks, the Bible says that being gay is an abomination. I personally believe people are born that way. A person can be born with both sexual organs, people are born with mental defects, physical defects, etc., but most old folks don’t believe you can be born that way, well, you’re wrong. Gods greatest gift is love, who would want to deny anyone from love and happiness?

The sick need help and they don't need no more rights than the rest of us... a little self respect and moral teaching go a long way.
