#HowIResist Campaign 19

We are supposed to “let your light so shine before men” through our lives and work (Matt. 5:16). Light does not make noise.

But what do we find today? We find born-again warriors of the faith who insist instead on forcing others to live by their moral standards using the laws, the courts, the police, fear, oppression and intimidation to force others to adopt their own moral codes. – Chude Jideonwo

 

#HowIResist

I resist with love, a necessity in a world full of hate and discrimination for people who choose to embrace their truth and live.

I resist by daily putting out my best energy into the world and to accept nothing less. Many have fought and didn’t make it and so my resistance comes from an inspiration to fight and make it.

I resist by choosing life. – Nonso

 

#HowIResist

I resist by letting people be who they are and learning to love them for who they are. I resist by embracing the differences that make us unique.

I resist by standing tall irrespective of the situation or circumstance I find myself. I resist by being true to myself and loving me unconditionally. – Klaus U.

 

#HowIResist

I resist by letting love lead, by speaking up against homophobia, occasionally trolling homophobes who think they have the right to demand that others love like them.

I resist by living my truth unabashedly. – Lucifer

 

#HowIResist

I wake up every day, telling myself that I have to be better than who I was yesterday because nothing hurts the homophobe like the success of that which he hates.

I resist by preaching the message of love and tolerance in any opportunity I get because I want to leave the world in a much better place for my kids. – Tahlee

 

#HowIResist

I accept all the hate and all the love because I understand that I am that much stronger because of it. – Ronie
