To My Friends With Whom I Disagree

To my friends who smoke: just because you are hurting yourself and others with your carcinogenic smoke and just because you make you and me stink and just because you think you have the right to smoke anywhere anytime despite my right to breathe clean air; it doesn't mean that I love you any less.  I love you in spite of it.

To my friends who do drugs: just because you are hurting yourself and others with your reckless behavior and bad judgment and just because I may have to see you in court or in prison or just because I may have to go to your funeral WAY before your time; it doesn't mean that I love you any less.  I love you in spite of it.

To my friends who get drunk: just because you are hurting yourself and others with your reckless behavior and bad judgment and just because I may have to see you in court or in prison or just because I may have to go to your funeral WAY before your time; it doesn't mean that I love you any less. I love you in spite of it.

To my friends who are racist: just because you don't realize that everyone all of races are created in the image of God and just because you feel that you are superior is some way to a fellow human being; it doesn't mean that I love you any less. I love you in spite of it.

To my friends who are homosexual: just because you have chosen to live a life contrary to God's plan for male and female and just because you get mad at me for pointing out that God considers homosexuality a sin and just because you think I am homophobic because I stand with the Bible and traditional values regarding sexuality and marriage; it doesn't mean that I love you any less. I love you in spite of it.

To my friends who are liberal: just because you support things that I consider to be counter-intuitive or just because you have bought into the idea that big government is better for our country or just because you support ideology and theology that goes against the Bible and traditional values; it doesn't mean that I love you any less. I love you in spite of it.

To my friends who gossip, slander, hate, and look at internet pornography: just because indulge yourself with things that do not edify yourself or others and just because you hurt yourself and others in the process; it doesn't mean that I love you any less. I love you in spite of it.  (I'm a sinner, too)

To my friends who disagree with me in areas of politics, religion, end times, government, current events, conspiracies, or whatever else that may come along; it doesn't mean that I love you any less. I love you in spite of it.

I hope you can love me in spite of me, too.
