"I think society’s emphasis on family forces us into relationships that are otherwise unhealthy. Sure, a long time ago, when people lived miles from civilization, family was all you had. There was a very practical purpose to sticking together. But now I have six million people in my backyard. Why should I be wasting time with someone I don’t like just because they have the same last name as me?"

Except that it is proven that family is a very key component of society. Breakdown of families = breakdown of society.

I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.
that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

We care because our taxes don’t primarily go to little boys who need heart surgery or elderly men who need heart medication.
They go to the same people who are mooching off of us through welfare. Who are perfectly capable of getting a job and paying for their own healthcare. But instead, they’d rather just take money from actual tax-paying members of our society.
Perhaps I don’t want to pay for another person’s “free” healthcare when my own is a ridiculous amount of money. How is that fair or right or just?
Obamacare is in no way free. It is costing those with jobs (middle class, mostly) a heck of a lot of money. And excuse me if I don’t want to pay double the cost just so you can continue to mooch.

Brooks was delivered two months early because he stopped growing in the womb. He was only 1lb, 3oz. See a news report on this amazing baby and his family here: http://ift.tt/OENBjM http://ift.tt/1fjYLAW

The only difference between this little one, and the millions of other humans like him who have been dismembered while still inside of their mothers’ wombs, is how their parents felt about them.
Are we going to allow our personhood to be defined by how other people view us? Or is it something innate that no one has the authority to take away?
Stand against discrimination. End the practice of human abortion.

I am a gay Christian.

Constantly, I am being labeled as a hypocrite

because I have faith in a God that apparently

does not accept me.

God calls everyone His own.

It’s the church that does not accept me.

Are my prayers not heard because

every night before I go to bed, I…

I honestly am sorry that you have been rejected by the Church. God does love you. The Church is called to love you.

But, as a Christian myself, I have to say that love and acceptance are not the same thing. I have no place to speak to you about this, because I don’t know you, but I would encourage you to listen to those in your life that love you and are telling you God’s truth.

STOP THE HATE.

So why is it not ok to disagree with gay marriage,and make jokes about it, and look down on it; IMMEDIATLEY, everyone gets in their feelings. but its totally fine for everyone else on Tumblr to make jokes about Christianity and put the people who believe in it down? Oh its perfectly fine to believe in budiusm, or be an athiest, or ANYTHING ELSE, EXCEPT Christianity. Seriously if you guys are preaching, “equality for all” how about you do it respectfully, you won’t get anywhere trying to make yourself sound right, while putting someone eles’s beliefs down. People have different opinions, that’s life.

I think I understand a little of what you are going through here. I am a Christian. I try to be respectful to all people, even if I don’t believe their lifestyle is right (yes, I believe homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, not something you are born with). I would never look down on a gay person because they have chosen to live that way. But I, in turn, expect them to not look down on me because of the way I have chosen to live.

It all comes down to mutual respect. Gay people are, in fact, people too. Jesus called us to love them too. Does that mean they will always love us? No. But, I think, if you know what the Bible says, you will know that it will be that way sometimes. It doesn’t matter though—we were called to love them anyway—no matter what names they call us and no matter how they choose to live. And hopefully, maybe…there are gay people out there who will respect our choices too and treat us like people as well.
