Most of us are aware of Miss California’s statement about Gay Marriage. But how many of us have heard what Miley said just days after? Read below… because I want your feedback!
It all started when Miss California, Carrie Prejean, answered a question about same sex marriages. I quote:
“We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what in my country, in my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody there, but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be, between a man and a woman.”
You can read all about it here.
As a guy who is very sensitive about this issue (because we as Christians have really messed up and said hateful and judgmental things), I was actually really pleased with Miss California’s response. I think she was not condemning, and at the same time, she shared her honest opinion based on her Biblical values. She has come across really strong through this whole ordeal.
I keep an eye on Miley because… well… most of the young girls of this nation are doing the same. Miley has had some ups and downs in the press. She is a proclaimed believer, and I think she’s been a pretty good role model overall.
A couple days after Miss California’s comments, Miley twittered about the subject. Her words:
“Jesus loves you and your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! That’s like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz he’s gay and that is wrong and very sad! Like I said everyone deserves to be happy. I am a Christian and I love you — gay or not. Because you are no different that anyone else! We are all God’s children!” (MTV News)
We, as Christians need to follow Christ’s example on this issue. That means
1. Showing love and compassion.
2. Pointing to the truth in love (not changing our morals to be politically correct)
Unfortunately, we (Christians) have failed on both extremes in recent years (you’ve heard me rant about this recently).
Where do you think Miley’s comments fall?
