let’s stop blaming god

Today our President took a brave stand in backing gay marriage. It was brave, and the only right thing to do. 

I was born and raised in Germany, a country that committed some of the most horrendous crimes in the history of humanity. I am also a deeply religious person who feels incredibly fortunate for life offered to me and my family. 

I believe in god, and I believe that god is looking down upon us, nodding his head right now. 

Because my god has always believed that gay people should be allowed to marry. 

Just like my god always believed that Jewish Germans were no lesser people than Christian Germans during the Holocaust. 

Just like my god always believed that African Americans should be allowed to marry Caucasian Americans. 

As a society, we need to stop blaming god for our own insecurities. The world would be a better place.
