I feel sad about the decision of US government legalizing same sex marriage to all states. I know that we are still lucky that in my country (Philippines) is it not allowed. Just a few reflection, I have my own problem so I pray to God, to the Holy Spirit to comfort me and to guide us. Now, I am in a dilemma questioning myself if I am too selfish not to include in prayers my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ not to vote for this( same sex marriage) but then I am not in full knowledge about it (that's true) if then I could have offer my sacrifices. But if still they voted YES then maybe God is testing the faithful what we should do about it. Maybe God wants us to stand still on the sanctity of marriage. It's not that. I am depriving their happiness or anything else, I respect them and I have LGBT friends who are married (same sex) and they are still my friends. But what makes me sad is, I saw pictures mocking the cross. The cross is a symbol of our salvation. I am expecting them to respect one's religion, coz they've been shouting respect and equality, but what they did is offensive. Anyway, at the end of the day a person is the sole responsible to his/her actions. And from now on, I choose to discern on things before opening my mouth or thinking negatively that may harm my soul. I still pray for my LGBT friends for they are all dear to me.
