My Thoughts On Recent Events 7-25

Tragedy in Norway

First let me say that my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. What happened is horrifying and sickening. It's hard to wrap your mind around. So many people killed and many more suffering, and for what? There's still so much about this that doesn't make sense. However, the suspect was apparently motivated in part by his hatred for Muslims. So, this man who claims to be a Christian, hates Muslims and apparently anyone who allows Muslims to exist and his solution is to plant a bomb, then head to a camp to kill kids. And he thinks Muslims are monsters?  It just doesn't make sense.

NewYork Legalizes Gay Marriage

And good for them. I don't understand why people are so against this. If you don't believe in homosexuality, then don't aquire a same sex partner. But you don't have the right to make that decision for someone else. People say religion forbids it. If you believe your religion forbids it, don't do it. But how does what someone else chooses affect you? You aren't the one who has to answer for their actions, they are. Let them worry about their own souls, you just concentrate on your own.
