Quick Update

You know those posts where people apologize for not posting. My sister will be rolling her eyes right about now. I haven’t had the energy, the story, and the internet all at the same time for quite a while. I’ve been working nearly every day, and trying to get to bed earlier, despite my night […]

Sorry about your struggles with sodomy…

I finally got a response to my coming out letter. My uncle wrote me: “I’m sorry to hear about your big struggle with sodomy.” He continued with some definitions of sodomy (including bestiality too) and a short history of sodomy laws (and was so woeful that these are no longer enforced). He was apalled that […]

I cast my absentee ballot for the primaries today. Well technically I filled in the blank and put it in the envelope, I’m not sure it counts as “cast” til it makes it back to Michigan.

So I tried out a new church yesterday. I went to a wedding there a few months back and recently heard a rumor that several of my relatives who go there are gay-affirming Christians. “M,” whom I mentioned in my last post, said that one fo my dad’s first cousins went to this church and […]

Things that give me hope (and probably you too)

This is in the style of my previous post, but positive. 1. Gay marriage is legal in New York!! Our most recent victory in equal rights for gays. I was raised believing that it was wrong, but a Christian friend of mine convinced me it was my Constitutional right. Ironic, no? A Christian convincing a […]
