Alive, and pissed . . . .

I've not been online to read blogs, let alone post something. 
Won't say I've not been online . . . .  
never mind.

There are times I feel angry.  Just angry. . . . . at the world, myself, who-knows-what.  I'm that way right now.  It's been a good day, but I'm feeling a bit pissed.

Working in the religious non-profit sector, I was (finally) dissed for being (somewhat) Christian AND gay.  Having posted something on a rather free-thinking, free-spirited group, I got somebody really pissed at me about that.  OK.  It's happening.  I'm all right with it, but it's just not happened before.  I've had it so easy in so many ways.

Really.  Of course, I've had my own struggles, but coming out has been easier.  Maybe there are parts that will get more difficult.  We'll see.

More on that later.  Cheers, all

It must be going around. I find myself suddenly angry and little things are setting me off. Especially at work. You're in my prayers, friend. Behr Hugs!

It's funny, I just had an email conversation about you with a certain blog reader today. I've been wondering how you were doing, and was thinking about giving you a call. Maybe I will on the 25th.

I'm glad you're okay. Don't let the internet trolls and haters get you down. And never forget we're here for you.

Before he died, my dad and stepmom bought me and my stepbrother a book for Christmas called, THERE'S GREATNESS IN YOU, MY SON.

There's a line in a poem I read that helped me understand the nay-sayers better:

"BE YOURSELF. IF SOMEONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH YOU BEING WHO YOU ARE, IT'S NOT BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE, IT'S BECAUSE OF WHO THEY ARE."

The one thing I hate about man-made religion is what's been beaten into someone's head since birth.

I'm thankful God's not like the ignorant and closed-minded.

Hope this helps.

In your Journey, you will continually meet such matters; keep going and don't let them get you down. Every step you take makes someone/something better.

They say in the program that if someone has a problem with you, it means really that there is a problem with them...

We have fought for decades to be who we are and for some of us we profess Christianity. I've had my fair share of nay sayers in my life and come by the blog to debate, poke holes and mock me with scripture.

I have a Page on the blog for all those nay sayers, because I refuse to engage them in any kind of discourse.

God created you, He loves you and that's all you need to know.

Fuck the rest and go on with your life. Poor sad fuckers ... I imagine when they die the question that they will have to answer is what did you do with your life?

Stay the Course Bear ...

Be a witness not a victim.

Back when I was still a Christian (I'm a Wiccan now), I'm not sure which was more annoying: being criticized by Christians for being gay, or being criticized by gays for being Christian. Blech.
