I am gay and very proud of it. Pay attention here I am Christian and married.
I love nurturing my roses.
Gayness and Love are what I strive for in life.
We use a word quite peculiarly -- gay. And I think it helps me to understand and love gay people. Come along and be gay yet contemplative with me.
I love flowers and I love to skip. I hug all my buddies. And I am moved my other men's sensitivity and caring. There are many men that I would find just fine to live with in the same home. I do live with one. I love men. I do most the housework and am the primary caretaker of our home's little boy.
No I am not bi or homosexual. I am just gay. I have a female wife and mother of my child. And yet each day I am gay. I am over 200 lbs and six foot tall with the face of a boxer who lost more than won. I am a dirty dog fighter. But I am gay.
It is not easy being green.
I sure am glad to be gay but it is hard.
Believe it or not it is not easy being gay. All family members and social friends just plain dispise you and are upset with you when you are gay in the hard times just like the bad times. It is like they want you to suffer to show that you take it seriously, or that you care.
It is crazy how many people talk bad about a gay man.
I was at one of my best friend's memorials. And I was happy and celebrating. We were close his widow once told me that we were as close as he ever got to man, including his awesome son. I took heat during the "party" from my atheist brother and one other folk for being so happy and gay. But shortly there after his widow told me how much she enjoyed me celebrating and being gay about her husband's life. Excuse me, but that was my sister.
Those of us who are gay do not change our stripes. We must be gay and proud of it. There is persecution and prosecution of those of us who are gay.
I do not care. I write on tough issues and I take tough positions. But I am gay in them. And for that I take heat..I just looked down to think about my next paragraph in this piece. And I flexed my hands into fists. And for no good reason I counted and tried to recount the scars. 22 and at least 18 from fighting. I do not take the easy road but I am gay about the journey.
It may be heredity
Gay is a state of mind and I am not different from other gays.
My gayness is a state of mind I wake up with in the morning. Sorry but I wake up gay 8 out of 10 times. So my good friends who are gay in a sexual attractive way I got to tell you that us that are just plain gay in the mindset of happy face persecution and prosecution just the same and at least you have a cause. Nobody cares what happy carefree and joyous folks face everyday.
We are even beaten and abused and cut down and slapped silly. We are accused of all kinds of causes for governments failing and economy failings and lack of backbones and laughed at by everyone.
This guy was gay just like me!
Christianity and gayness.
Here is the hard part. Many "Christians" tell me that I must be more worried about the souls of those who do not follow what they understand as law.
I am not born under law. I am born under love. Who shall ever harden my heart against others is wrong and condemned. Christians have two simple rules to follow. They are as simple as wipe after you poop. Love God and Love others. That is it. End of Story. Now our ideas of love may vary for I have seen true tough love and I have seen murder in defense of another.
But there is no excuse for not loving someone you see as a sinner. I got no scripture there at all from Jesus. And if you love them, as Paul teaches it is without judgment or piety. You do not get to not love them or pass judgment on them for "holy" reasons. For you are not God but must live under his two commandments of love.
Do you love your gay brothers and sisters?
Do you believe you can judge?
Let me be gay and happy. And let it be known that these men preserved my right. Let us honor them and be gay in our freedom and our knowledge that our rights and freedom are not free and that we own them.
My father in law was attached to these men. He was one of my best fiends. And his wife is a daily reminder of what I owe to soldiers to let me be gay.
So we hope by now that we see prejudice as the coward it is.
Let others prosper and let their orientation be free. Let me be crazy and love life. Even if you see evil in all things.
Please let by brothers and sisters do well and love you.
Let it be known what gay is.
I am gay in my love for all mankind. Do not hate me for my love allow yourself to be tested in honor.
