OK, I'm getting a little tired of reading long-winded sermons about Christianity. If I want to hear about Christ's love, I'll go to church or tune into the 700 Club. I'm really happy that some of you love Jesus and make choices based strictly on what you think is written in the Bible, but I do not. For years, we've all heard about the alleged "Homosexual Agenda", mainly from so-called Christian sources, but in just the short time since I've been a member of Daily Strength, I've had to plow through a number of dogmatic postings which sound an awful lot to me like a "Christian Agenda". I respect your choices and beliefs-- really, I do-- but I prefer "love" to be given to me without a message. I don't at all like that icky feeling I get when I think I'm being "loved" in the same way that Mother Theresa loved the leper. It's condescending and, frankly, makes my skin crawl.
