Your Homophobia isn’t a “Difference of Opinion”… it’s pure Hate!
I have seen the various stories and videos that Christiaan Otto is sharing with his prejudiced thoughts, and self-inflated supremacy ideals sprinkled with a side of explicit Homophobia.
But his thoughts and opinions are pure Hate! And disguising it as anything different is just naive.
That is all the air-time I will give that evil human, please don’t watch his videos or visit his social media pages… as this is all he really wants; attention and social media “fame” for being a not-so-nice guy.
This message is also not for him.
This message is for any person who feels like they are not good enough because one hateful man with a biased opinion (and like-minded following) likes to share what he believes is the truth… irresponsibly. His words are not the truth. His words are just his hateful, broken opinions, and we’re not going to let silly beliefs become facts, are we?
I want you to know that you are more than enough; that you are loved & are perfect in every way. You are here for a reason, and that reason is to be you.
One morning you’ll wake up different. Done with trying to figure out who is with you, or against you, or walking down the middle because they don’t have the guts to pick a side. You’ll be done with anything and everything that doesn’t bring you peace. You’ll realise that opinions are a dime a dozen, that validation is only for parking and loyalty isn’t just a word but rather a lifestyle.
It will be that day that your whole life will change. And not because of anything else but yourself and the simple fact that you’ll realise that life is way too short to leave the key to YOUR happiness in anyone else’s pocket.
Until that day, I’ll hold your hand a little tighter. I’ll stand up to every bit of abuse and bullying. I’ll stand for equality and love and good things. I’ll stand with you and for you until you’re ready to stand for yourself.
And I also want you to know that love always wins!
There are loads of people who will show you just that in your life right now, but if for any reason you are confused and scared because of who you are, then I am here for you. If your family do not accept you, then I am here for you. And if you just need a shoulder to cry on, I am here for you.
Do not be dismayed by the hatefulness and brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention.
So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally.
The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.
