The unjust kind people treat you shows you what for kind of people they are! If you look away from injustice you take part of the injustice!
These people are unnormal, which love nobody. Don't judge so quick about others tomorrow you can be in his shoes.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender teens are bullied and ostracized in epidemic proportions. It's disgusting, and it must change. Monica Raymund

The barometer for judging the character of people, in regard human rights, is now those who consider themselves gay, homosexual, lesbian. The judgment as to whether you can trust the future, the social advancement - depending on people - will be judged on where they come out on that question. Bayard Rustin

"It is no problem worldwide in male sight to rape, torture, domestic and sexual murder, despise and harass women, girls, childs and LGBT people and show male misogyny and homophobia, but it is a problem for them to accept women, girls and LGBT people. Women, girls, childs and LGBT people are worldwide victims of hate crimes, torture, rape and murder and hate speech against women, girls, childs and LGBT people. The male society has no problem with child marriages, forced marriages, rape porns, rape of childs, girls, women and LGBT people,corrective rape, child porns, female infanticide, domestic and sexual violence, killing and blaming female and LGBT assault victims, forced prostitution, sex slavery., street and workplace harrassment. But the male society has a problem with women,girls, childs, LGBT people, which are are proud of themselves and want to be live in freedom and peace. Women, girls, childs and LGBT people are humans with all rights to live in freedom, peace and without fear and not sexual and lower objects. The only abnormal people are those which love nobody and hate other people because they want to be free and love whom they want. We must end the patriarchal dictatorship and terror worldwide.

Two shocking hate crimes against lesbian and gay people:

Friday, March 14, 2014,Texas, 2014, U.S.A:

A Texas dad disgusted with his daughter’s lesbian lifestyle murdered the young woman and her lover, the girl’s mother said in a shocking twist to a gruesome case.

James Cosby, 46, bludgeoned his daughter Britney Cosby to death and shot her lover, Crystal Jackson, on March 6 before dumping the bodies near the ferry gate in Port Bolivar, Texas, police believe.

The bodies were found near a Dumpster around 7:30 a.m. the next day outside a Fisherman’s Cove food mart.

Both women were 24.

24 Apr 2009, Sydney, Australia:

The 27-year-old Chen (Anthony) Liu, who was found dead in the mudflats at Oatley Bay, south of Sydney, with 27 nails in his skull and neck in November 2008. (NSW Police)

Police have released a gruesome photo showing how a Sydney man was shot in the head and neck with a nail gun 34 times.

27-year-old Chen Liu, who also went by the name of Anthony Liu, was found dead in marshland surrounding the Georges River in Sydney's south last year.

Police say the severely decomposed body was found just after 6:00pm (AEDT) on 1 November 2008 by two children, aged 9 and 14, who told their parents they had seen a body in Oatley Bay while on a canoeing trip.

Police say Mr Liu had been dead for 12 days before being discovered.

The Homicide Squad has been handling the case in conjunction with the Hurstville Local Area Command, forming Strike Force Renfree, but so far no arrests have been made.

They have now released an X-ray of the 27-year-old's skull and neck, which shows it was filled with 34 nails.

"Post-mortem examination results revealed Mr Liu was shot repeatedly to the head with a high-powered nail gun. Similar types of nail guns can fire nails up to 85 millimetres long," Detective Inspector Mark Newham of the Homicide Squad said in a statement.

The head of the Homicide Squad, Geoff Beresford, says the weapon has not been found.

"If anyone knows of a particular nail gun that has been stolen from them or from work premises, building sites, et cetera, we'd be grateful to hear that information," he said.

He says the victim had been in Australia for eight years, but has no family here.

"In 36 years of investigation, I've never come across a murder of this nature using a nail gun," he said.

"May I say it's a particularly brutal and vicious murder and we are seeking information from the public so we can bring this inquiry to a conclusion."

Detective Inspector Newham says information about the victim's car would be useful.

"Strike Force detectives are also appealing for information from anyone who might have seen Mr Liu's car in Rockdale or Connells Point around 19 October 2008," he said.

The car is described as a 2005 model blue Range Rover Sport four wheel drive, which police believe may have been used to dump Mr Liu's body in the marshland.

People with information are asked to contact Strike Force Renfree via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, and police say all information will be treated in strict confidence.

“The accounts of rape, wife beating, forced childbearing, medical butchering, sex-motivated murder, forced prostitution, physical mutilation, sadistic psychological abuse, and other commonplaces of female experience
that are excavated from the past or given by contemporary survivors should leave the heart seared, the mind in anguish, the conscience in upheaval. But they do not. No matter how often these stories are told, with whatever clarity or eloquence, bitterness or sorrow, they might as well have been whispered in wind or written in sand: they disappear, as if they were nothing. The tellers and the stories are ignored or ridiculed, threatened back into silence or destroyed, and the experience of female suffering is buried in cultural invisibility and contempt… the very reality of abuse sustained by women, despite its overwhelming pervasiveness and constancy, is negated. It is negated in the transactions of everyday life, and it is negated in the history books, left out, and it is negated by those who claim to care about suffering but are blind to this suffering.

The problem, simply stated, is that one must believe in the existence of the person in order to recognize the authenticity of her suffering. Neither men nor women believe in the existence of women as significant beings. It is impossible to remember as real the suffering of someone who by definition has no legitimate claim to dignity or freedom, someone who is in fact viewed as some thing, an object or an absence. And if a woman, an individual woman multiplied by billions, does not believe in her own discrete existence and therefore cannot credit the authenticity of her own suffering, she is erased, canceled out, and the meaning of her life, whatever it is, whatever it might have been, is lost. This loss cannot be calculated or comprehended. It is vast and awful, and nothing will ever make up for it.”

It's amazing how the Roman Catholic Church curia is disconnected from the reality of the Real Catholic Church on the grounds. I support this petition because we need urgently to burst this horrible bubble. They need to be hold accountable for their hate speech.

As somebody who will very likely minister to LGBT+ people, and is committed to building a more inclusive Church (which is what the Catholic Church should by definition be) - it is of great importance that we change our language.

The Church is excluding God’s people, even those baptized and faithful followers of Jesus. Injustice causing pain and diminishing the Gospel message. Unconditional love for all- not the power and control of the clerics in Vatican.

This must be changed in the church as a whole. LGBTQ folks are unjustly ostracized due to the church stance, which is wrong.

It’s time to move on. The teaching about being intrinsically disordered is wrong and is based on an old outdated view of the world that no longer can withstand scrutiny. It’s an embarrassment to our Church that this remains but more importantly it does not reflect Christianity, love AND it’s hurting people.

I cannot believe that the living god in whom we believe condemns the sexuality of any creature because it would be absurd. Prejudice and discrimination are human failings, not godly in any way. Christ makes only one comment on human sexual behaviour in the Gospel and that’s to tell an adulterous woman to go and sin no more.
We cannot continue to abuse people for their sexuality which is given and must therefore be part of God’s plan.

Thanks for adding your voice.

The human race has moved on in its understanding of gender and sexuality, based on its lived experiences, principles of inclusion, mutual respect and medical knowledge. It's high time a religion based on love, does that too!
