"Don't look for love...let it find you."

I think that is the most pessimistic statement I have ever heard. It sounds like something a person that has "failed" too many times in their pursuit of love says to justify being too afraid to try again. If you want that great job, do you wait for the CEO to approach you, or do you put yourself into the "pool" of sharks and make them believers as to why you are the best for the position?

I think finding true love is the same way. Even when the world is seemingly still, it is still moving at a rapid pace. Light seems constant but does it not move as well? Just because you don't see the "wheels" in motion does not mean that they are not moving.

Love is the same. How can you possibly find love if you are both standing still, waiting for each other? In a matter of fact, how will you know who you are waiting for? We'll wait our lives for someone to come along and all the while realize that we have been duped. I don't feel that we are assigned a single soulmate. With that being said, the possibility of finding the "right one" is infinite (or pretty good at the least).

You shouldn't expect life altering things to happen if you're too afraid to take risks. So instead of asking why is it taking so long for love to find us, shouldn't we be asking ourselves, why are we being so lax in our pursuit of love?

"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

I remember listening to sermons on why being gay is wrong. The church started a petition against anything that supports same-sex partners. 

I still don't understand why the gay issue is such a sore spot for the Christian church. If the church were to rank sins, being gay is pretty high up there. Christians are willing to look past lying, gambling, cheating, & drunkenness (which are all mentioned in the Bible too). It's the one sin Christians are unwilling to forgive. Which is ironic -- given that it's not up to us to judge other people. 

There are a lot of religious extremists out there who ruin the whole religious image for everyone. People who aren't religious tend to think we are all just wacko crazy. That's also something that needs to change. 

Really, all problems, whether it be in regards to sex preference, religion, gun rights, race, etc, people just need to be understanding. It's really not anyone else's business what other people do. What right does anyone have to judge someone else? 

Maybe if more people judged themselves, and kept their noses out of other people's lives, we wouldn't have so many problems like judging gays.
