once again, can i say i'm not with them?

i've been slack, huh? sorry about that. it's been ... real ... around here.

reading the news this morning, came across this. some crazy church that plans to protest heath ledger's memorial because he played a gay man in 'brokeback mountain'. apparently, this is the same church that protests funerals of soldiers killed in iraq. it makes me so mad. so. mad. i want to tell these people to go spend some time reading their bibles before they get up on their high horses. how about 1 john 4:20,21? "If anyone boasts, "I love God," and goes right on hating (his fellow man), thinking nothing of it, he is a liar. If he won't love the person he can see, how can he love the God he can't see? The command we have from Christ is blunt: Loving God includes loving people. You've got to love both." (msg.)

just another thing wrong with the world when you can't greive the loss of a fellow human being God created.

I'm so sad about Heath Ledger. I still can't believe he's gone and to read something so cruel about him is just infuriating. If you truly love and know God, wouldn't you feel convicted of such foolishness?
