All Lives Matter to G_d


[Image description: a US American white, male & female couple hold a placard which reads:

Christ & Racism

- DO NOT - mix.

You can’t love God &

Hate His Creation ]


This sign from last year´s Black Lives Matter campaign could equally state:


Christ & Disablism (US Ableism)

- DO NOT - mix.

You can’t love God &

Hate Their Creation.


Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, Ageism, etc. have no place in Christianity. If you believe they do, you are no true Christian. Jesus made it crystal-clear that after loving G_d, the next most important commandment was to love one another. He himself averred that he came to fulfil and thus replace the Old Testament (OT), so there is no justification for quoting scriptures out of context. To be quite clear: There is NO place for hate, treading in the steps of JC!


Black lives matter.

Asian lives matter.

Disabled lives matter.

Wimmin’s lives matter.

LGBTQIA+ lives matter.

Senior citizens’ lives matter.

Poor, working-class men’s lives matter.


If you do not understand why any of the above groupings are suffering in British (or US or Oz) society, then do some research - the internet is full of personal stories, histories from differing perspectives and data for those interested in statistical analyses.

We all have our own prejudices. The path of Faith calls us to to challenge ourselves and learn to stretch out the hand of amity, of friendship to all, not just those who are like us.
