You Love Gay People? That’s great. Prove it.

On a day where I had to hand my four-legged son off to my parents (if you know me, you know that was rough), and a day where I’m packing and preparing to take my first international trip for vacation tomorrow (Cancun), and on a day where I can’t stop thinking about that damn mysterious missing plane (!!!! ???), I couldn’t think of a great way to let my readers know that I’ll be absent for a few weeks.

Then I read a great blog post by one of my favorites. It’s a topic that I’m so passionate about… and I just decided that I’m passing it along, paranormal or not. Although, I would argue that this post would fit quite well under the topic of “spiritual”. Maybe? I dunno. The good news is, I’m in charge here. 🙂 Anyway, this is probably only the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve re-blogged. Please enjoy, and if you feel so inclined, please pass it along.

When we return from Cancun I’ll immediately take off for the TAPS and Chip Coffey at Belvoir Winery event. I’m so excited to report back after both of those experiences! And yes… I’ll keep my eyes open for paranormal activity in Mexico.

Peace, everyone! Spring is coming!!

fairlady“When conservative Christians find out I’m gay, they almost all say the same thing: ‘I know gay people think Christians hate them, but I don’t. I love gay people. I may not agree with them, but I love them.'”

(Today’s post is from Justin Lee, Author of “Torn”, and the Executive Director of The Gay Christian Network.)

You’d be surprised how often I hear this. Christians are constantly telling me how much they love me.

If they treat me disapprovingly, it’s because they “love the sinner and hate the sin.”

If they preach at me, they’re “speaking the truth in love.”

If they distance themselves from me, it’s because they’re showing “tough love.”

Yet they wonder why gay people don’t feel very loved.

It reminds me of a scene from the 1960s musical film My Fair Lady. Eliza Doolittle, a poor flower girl, has worked hard to overcome her…

    You know, I’ve never understood why someone’s sexuality is remotely important. My job doesn’t depend on me being straight, bi, gay or what have you. (Unless I happen to work in a brothel that demands that.)

    The mysterious ways of humans…

    Great re-blogged post. This is exactly the problem I have with organized religions. The original founders of the various religions teach love and compassion, but generations later, people turn those religions into a reason to feel superior and hate those who are different. And, Patrick, I’d invite you out to dinner any time. Sally

    Excellent repost. It makes me wonder why they feel the need to differentiate at all. Didn’t Christ say to love all people? Did he categorize them into groups? He just said people. It’s like saying “some of my best friends are black.” Do they know that because you said so, or are your actions indicative of your true feelings? It seems to me that people think of themselves as human beings first and foremost, and those are the ones we’re supposed to love – every last, sweaty, smelly, unpleasant, disgusting, and hateful one of them. I hope you have a great vacation. I’m sure you will. We’ll miss you!

      Thanks, Randy. As you likely know by now, my spring break and vacation was fabulous. Probably the best ever… for sure the most eventful ever. I usually don’t do eventful, but I handled this rather well I think.
