Beautiful, ambitious, and bold, are just a few words that would describe the 5ft.10in, Robin Rene Roberts. She was born in Pass Christian, Mississippi, on November 23rd 1960, and was the youngest of four siblings. Her father was a Tuskegee Airman pilot.
In 2012, Robin was faced with yet another serious battle, and had to take a medical leave of absence from Good Morning America. She had developed a rare blood disorder, and needed a bone marrow transplant. Sally Ann Roberts, Robin’s older sister and motivator for her journalistic career, was Robin’s donor.
As soon as Robin’s announcement was made, the news traveled like wild fire. Certain celebrities praised her for “coming out” and they stated that they were proud of her. They praised her for being courageous for identifying her sexual preference. This is vital to our younger generation, because Robin Roberts has become a household name for several years and so many people admire her. She has been an inspiration to women of all ages, colors and creed.
In today's times, our generation is being hoaxed into believing that it’s acceptable to redefine the bible to suit their lifestyles, but that’s not acceptable in Gods eyes. We have to live by God’s word, and help to get as many souls as we can to the Lord. To get into the Kingdom of Heaven, there are rules from our creator, that we must follow, obey. It’s clearly written in the Holy Bible, what’s expected of us.
As we celebrate God’s mercy upon Robins healing process; we as Christians must also declare and celebrate God's desire for holiness. Christ’s word declares that we live the lifestyle He desires for us. Robin has often acknowledged, God and how He has brought her through her trials. She has also mentioned how she came from a religious background. In light of the fact that the bible indicates God made a woman, for a man. Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." Definitively God loves us all, but He does take a stance on homosexuality. It is a sin, in His eyes. Leviticus 20:13 “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act.”
So how do you feel about Robin Roberts coming out of the closet?
We’d like to hear from parents, of teenage girls as well. Are you concerned that more and more of our teenage girls are finding that they are attracted to other teenage girls? Do you think this is becoming a part of peer pressure in our schools, the media, etc.? Let's discuss.
