I call it love, they call it living in sin

Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

Living in sin, who decides if there even is such a thing 

Like a cowboy once said, I call it love, they call it sin, because of the lack of a wedding ring 

Living in sin cause a man loves a man 

But surely love is love is this enough to hold judgement, to dam? 

Living in sin cause your kids have two dads 

That girl could have been rapped but she's branded a slut, that's shes bad 

Living in sin cause my kids friend has two mums 

Who love him completely, love + love = love, 

you do the sum 

Living in sin cause my last name is Smith 

But my kids is his dads who I love and I'm with

Living in sin cause I don't go to church 

I'm a good human being, I respect your religion now come down from your perch 

Living in sin cause they don't live like you, judgement,  surely a sin in itself, we all sin, who knew?

    How people chose to live their lives is entirely up to them - bizarre beliefs and opinions whether religious or otherwise are up to them as long as they live in respect of everyone else. There's room for us all on this planet (well at the moment 🙂 ) Enjoyed the read.

      Thank you and I concur 😊

      The world has come a long way in centuries and we are more tolerant and accepting. 10 % of the population is gay. It only seems natural. Fine write. Hugs.

      Jooles love overrides all things and if people do not like the way you or any of us are living our lives it is not your problem, it is theirs.
      I go to Church and I am married but would never question anybody else's relationship, we have many friends who are together but not married, our son and one of our daughters being two of them and they are wonderful. Love is certainly NOT a sin.

        Hi Goldfinch I agree so many sad things in our in any form should not be one of them 😊
