I have two friends who are super nice and fun to be around and we always have intelligent conversations. However, they are both extremely religious and are very strongly pro-life (which is okay!) and less strongly anti-gay marriage. I’m finding it really difficult to be friends with them when something they put most of their energy into is so fundamentally wrong in my view. I had to hide one of their Facebooks on my feed today, because 90% of what she posts has to do with this stuff, and I don’t need to start any drama on the internets.
Being pro-life is okay! I understand the argument and respect it (when religion isn’t brought into play). I agree to disagree, but can have a civilized conversation and understand both sides.
Calling pro-choice “pro-abort” is not okay. I am not pro-abortion. I probably wouldn’t even get an abortion if I got pregnant. Do I want someone to take the option away from me? No.
(The one thing I won’t budge on is the gay marriage stance, which I will not address any other views, because they are wrong—there is no reason for someone not to be able to marry someone they want to marry).
Please, please, PLEASE let me go to hell but let me do all of my sinning before I kick it.
