Why So Much Attention on the “Gay” Issue?
If you’re my friend on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or stop by my blog from time to time then you may have noticed how, in the past 9 months, a significant portion of my online presence has been devoted to issues pertaining to the LGTBQ community. And, it’s possible, you’ve wondered ‘why.’
Why do I talk about this issue so much?
I think that, for those who have known me for a while, this is a fair, if not also interesting, question. Since I’ve been asked it (in one form or another) so many times lately, I think I’d like to address it and see if I can bring some clarity and understanding as to why it is that this season of my online-life has been so focused on homosexuality.
I have broken it up in to a 4 part series that will be published each day this week. So sign up to Subscribe to my blog (on the right hand side of this page), or just plan on checking back in each morning next week.
Here’s the schedule:
- Tuesday: Gay Balloons and Star Wars Legos It’s a simple matter of physics and passions
- Wednesday: Speaking of Jesus… If I’m a Christian, why don’t I only talk about Jesus?
- Thursday: And Yet it Moves I want “future-me” to be proud of “current-me”
- Friday: The Bible is Tricky, Love Shouldn’t Be Theological and humanitarian conclusions
I hope you’ll take the time this week to read each entry and maybe even give it a “share.”
There aren’t enough of us Straight Allies who are willing to talk about these things. And while I know some of you wish I’d talk about it less, there are plenty more people who hope I never stop.
This week will give you a glimpse into my heart and my head. If it raises more questions than it answers, as always feel free to leave a comment in the comment section.
Grace and Peace.
