What is Parents Day?

Parents Day has officially been a national holiday since 1994, and is all about family (no matter what faith or background you come from). You can even nominate your parents to win Parents of the Year! Parents Day is meant to show your appreciation for your parents and all the hard work they do in your family and in your community.

  • Take your parents to the beach
  • Surprise them by doing chores
  • Plan a family movie night and pick one your parents’ faves!
  • Make a redeemable chore “booklet” your parents can cash in when they’re feeling stressed
  • Does your parent have a special hobby? Make Parents Day the day you join them, whether it’s collecting stamps or learning carpentry!
  • Make a card
  • Bake them cookies
  • Clean your room (this is really a gift for both of you!)

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But in some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;
