Have you seen this meme? It has just hit facebook and is all up in my feed. Here is my response…
Yes, I am a follower of Jesus.
I believe the truth contained in the Bible and in THE TRUTH who is Jesus Christ.
I support my homosexual friends and their right to marry the person they love.
Yes, I love all people.
Yes, I am still friends with people who disagree with me.
No, I am not judging you.
Yes, I am trying to persuade you to love like Jesus.
Yes, I will stand up for your right to free exercise of your beliefs as long as they don’t infringe on someone else’s right to practice theirs.
I will never call you a name but I will point out where your practice lacks grace, mercy and compassion. I will not remain silent as you say that I do not respect the scriptures or that I do not believe “the truth”. I will not remain silent when people God loves are being told they are not welcome in his family. I fully support your right to speak what you believe, and I will continue to speak what I believe.
* Due to demand I turned this into a meme of my own which you will find below. Please feel free to share it.

Nice response…my thoughts exactly! You should make yours into a similar meme!
Just finished reading Philip Yancey’s What’s So Amazing About Grace.? Made my own meme with my favorite quote from the book–Christians should be known like perfume atomizers, dispensing grace–instead we’re more known for being like like wielders of insecticide spray…
My response to the meme is that the proponent has the right to express belief, but not to oppose equal marriage: because that is trampling on my rights.
Love this! You’ve basically said exactly what I believe, to the point where when I read this on the Facebook page Christians Tired of Being Misrepresented, I felt as though it was my own voice reading it. Thank you!
