I received a sad news today. A friend, after years of battle with cancer, finally succumbed to the disease. The other day, I expressed my thought against same sex marriage in a blog I frequent. Someone did not like my view and left a comment on the said blog and in my other blog too. She said "what is it to me if gays marry." She said it will not affect my life. She said that I'm ignorant and a professing Christian. She said that I "spew" hatred but I don't see how. I was not cursing or condemning anyone. My being against same sex marriage has nothing to do with gays. It has something to do with my religious belief. If I say no to my child's request, does that mean I hate my child? If I do not agree to same sex marriage, does that mean I hate gays? Will my hatred cure cancer?

There are so many advocacies fighting for different causes. Some are petty, some are life changing. If I were to chose, I'd support advocacies that would promote world peace, ease poverty and world hunger, ban abortion, promote family planning so as to avoid abortion, education for all, find a cure for cancer and other deadly and incurable diseases, and others. If gays want to marry and the government finally allows it, so be it. But I will never consent to it for I know it will not cure cancer.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your friend. My prayers are with you and with her family.

    You're right about gay marriage, and I'm sorry that person said the things she did. God bless.

  3. Sad, but at least she's in good hands now. No pain and no more cancer!

    We are all entitled to our own opinion. She was just plain stupid for saying those things to you.

  4. It's indeed a very sad day. I was sitting in front of my computer last night thinking if I should write about it or not and before I know it was midnight already. I haven't seen her in years but I can vividly remember her being so vibrant and happy all the time.

    huling: the wake is in sucat, holy trinity chapel. we'll be going there tomorrow, wednesday. i'll keep you posted. i was looking at some old picture albums last night and i just realized she attended so many parties here in our house. you're right, she was such a vibrant and positive person.
