    Wow! I shared this post on my Facebook account because I am in total agreement with Kelly on this one. You would not believe the controversy it sparked! Everything from my lack of support for gays, my narrow minded, holier-than-thou Christian beliefs, how judgemental it was. It totally polarized by FB friends and family. I even “unfriended” 3 of my family members because I couldn’t take any more of their verbal abuse. After this disquieting adventure, I sat down with my bible and read “Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:4-5. Strangely enough, one of the people I unfriended was named Timothy. Thank you for giving me another opportunity to stand up for Christ!
