What is morality without honesty?

January 14, 2013

One step in my journey from conservative Republican Christian to an openly gay member of the Christian Left, was the disregard many of my former associates have for truth. It is apparent in the hatred of science and reason, which have been friends of the church -although the church has not always returned the friendship. […]

A reminder of marriage inequality

September 28, 2012

I went on a genealogy trip a few days ago. My great-grandfather was born in Holmes County, and I wanted to see if I could find his birth record, and some other records proving what I had learned about him and his ancestors online. I was in the Probate Court, looking through an old, handwritten log of […]

I recently opened my email to find a surprising letter form Focus on the Family. I used to really appreciate their radio station when I wanted to be ex-gay, and I still love “Adventures in Odyssey,” their radio drama, but I have not emailed them, or signed up for anything recently so I was surprised […]
