Life is complicated for a black, lesbian, gospel-singing 45 year old virgin. http://www.theroot.com/views/gospel-singer-slims-down-and-comes-out...

There just aren't any easy answers.

In Sweetwater Tennessee, still waters run deep....  and under the water is some toxic mud....

"In choosing to name a group of people such as the Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT), you are choosing to group together a group of people who are not of the same race, but have made a personal and moral life style choice. Other groups who make a personal life style choice are drug user and sellers, gang members, prostitutes, cults and murderers"

 

Lovely place....  just lovely.

Britain's Derby Council has defended banning a self-avowed devout Christian couple from providing further foster care to children because of the couple's anti-gay views, with a member of the council revealing in a BBC interview that the husband had said he would try and "turn" a gay child.

I'll take your icky sticky and raise you a disappointing gay best friend.  I was always a lousy gay best friend.  I just wanted to go hiking and dig in the yard.

Organized religion doesn't always have to be rigid or rejecting of sexual non-conformity. I don't care for organized religion. I have something of an allergy for churches, even as meeting places for progressives and liberals. But I'm not a religio-phobe. From my Secular Humanist perspective I try to be aware of the constantly shifting changes of religion in culture. I found these browsing through YouTube.

The Michael Voris VIDEO.

I see this a little differently. I see the message here as intertwined with the Catholic doctrine of suffering. (Which has a HUGE class bias, but that's another discussion!!). So, I think the point here is that the homosexual, as created by God, is to be admired more for his/her special burden of suffering. This is not humanism, it might be humanitarian, and it is quasi liberal. At least, the sermon is not rejecting or condeming. Compared to a reactionary doctrine of sin and condemnation and assersation of power (like right wing Opus Dei), this is liberal. This is closer to the compassion and charity branch of theoloty, like the left wing Catholic Workers. But I don't have to like it. As a non-theist, I too find it duplicitous, but not contradictory within the logic of faith in suffering. I think we can all see here a reason why many of us strayed from the faith to a more naturalist and Epicurean philosophy of life.
