Christianity And Misdirection: Disassociation Of Gays And *AIDS*Victims-***messymandella***God Does Not Hate!

I can’t change, even If I wanted to…
I am not crying on Sunday
I grew up in a religion that condemns you for being homosexual
I hated watching people have to leave home because of being gay,transsexual,or a lesbian
I wonder why God didn’t love them?
I wanted to go up and hug them as a little girl,but I couldn’t
I had a friend that was a gay man, that would give me candy and hugs
I am writing this for you!
I watched as we turned you away from God
I saw you get AIDS, when the epidemic finally reached us
I remember you telling me you couldn’t talk to me,
I cried at the outside of that Kingdom Hall, and asked you why?
I can recall hugging you and your long fingernails as you telling me bye
I didn’t understand why you didn’t try to come back to our congregation,
I asked where you were and I was told you were in the hospital, alone
I can recall crying when they said you died from AIDS,
I cried,when as a little girl it hurt me, that only your mom came to your death-bed,
I got a whipping that night because I said at 7 years old “That is mean and stupid,”
I will never forget you and I will never let anyone die alone,
I miss you and you died over 30 years ago, and you were my friend,
I know you would be proud of me, and surprised that you had an impact on my life,
I will always make jokes about LGBT issues,but that hides the pain of your last days
I am so sorry, I never said Good-bye
I know you would be proud that currently AIDS victims have support
I am old enough to know I was 100% right then
I know you died before making it to your 30th Birthday
I think that God loves you, and I hate that no one was around to tell you!
I will not forget you, and you sleep in peace knowing that at 7- years old I knew how to be a real friend…thank you!
