There are people all over the world who harbor certain prejudices that I cannot fathom. Ironically some of these people are highly religious, church-going folks. Although most people would not consider me religious, it is my belief that God loves all creatures, human & otherwise. He loves sinners & saints alike. I was taught that God will never turn away from you, despite choices & actions that would often be deemed deplorable by others.
I think of myself as a pretty open-minded person who, for the most part, can accept behaviors shunned by others. Case in point: Love. If you love someone, who has the right to criticize or rebuke your feelings, or to outlaw it for that matter? I know a few gay & lesbian couples and have no prejudice against the life they have chosen. The power of love know no boundaries.
I found this love story on someone's blog (sorry, but I cannot remember which...) and thought it was so precious. It exemplifies the mystery of attraction & the power of love. I hope you enjoy it, too.
