There has been a lot of things swirling around in my little head. I guess you can say I have been "Mind Voguing" LOL! I have a friend, well a couple of friends that really, really have strong issues about how they feel about being homosexual, issues with dogma, and just there level of comfortably with sexuality. If there is one thing I have learned is that everyone is entitled to think and do whatever they like. It is there freedom of choice, no matter what my opinion is.
What does bother me, is to see that thinking manifest into "unhappiness" not only for themselves, but also when it effects others as well. The super hero in me wants to "save them" but even Jesus can't help those that don't want to help themselves. What I have learned to do is to be empathic to one's situation.Yet, if someone is trying to make a "right" and they go "left", then I'm entitled to tell them to make a quick U turn! LOL.
Jon Stewart had Mike Huckabee on The Daily Show last night and the second half of the appearance focused on marriage equality. You got to love John, because he said something very profound, at least to me!
"Religion is far more of a choice than homosexuality. We protect religion - and talk about a lifestyle choice - that is absolutely a choice. Gay people don't choose to be gay. At what point did you choose not to be gay? ... I think it's a travesty that people have forced someone who is gay to have to make their case."
I mean Wow. I never thought about it that way, and it is so true. Here we are using a religion, most of the time, handed down to us by our parents, and rarely given a choice about, to dictate how we choose to live our lives. There are plenty of times my parents or the decisions of my parents, and even the opinions of my parents dictated what I did, and how I felt, even when it wasn't a choice for myself. Yet this is the thing about being "Awake" and "Sleep Walking"... I no longer have to allow others to do that anymore. I Choose. It was my choice to "accept" that I am who I am, to live a life with the knowledge that I don't have to live in fear. I can choose to be HAPPY, and love and care for people.
There is far more healing to do in the world, then to be caught up in who is a "top or bottom" or do I want a "thug or a Fem Queen?" Does it really matter who is the "Male or Female" in a relationship or if I can pass as "straight" in on the streets or in the church? There is far more healing to do in the world then feel uncomfortable about someone "holding a hand" or "seeing a public kiss" or seeing somebody walk down the aisle!
The healing has to start with us.
It has to start with YOU.
P.S. I found this link to be very helpful, but it may change the way you think about homosexuality. Some people are afraid of the Truth. Yet, if you are not afraid to be liberated, then Click HERE. This information at one time, changed my view on life forever.
