Am gay, and homosexual. But some good Christians take the bludgeon of 'homosexual' to crucify me. Here is the extent of their fixation on my sexuality.
And yes, words do matter.
THE American Family Association has a strict policy to replace the word "gay" with "homosexual" on its news website - but it created a problem with sprinter Tyson Gay.
Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has. His time of 9.68 seconds at the U.S. Olympic trials Sunday doesn't count as a world record, because it was run with the help of a too-strong tailwind.
Here's what does matter: Homosexual qualified for his first Summer Games team and served notice he's certainly someone to watch in Beijing.
"It means a lot to me," the 25-year-old Homosexual said. "I'm glad my body could do it, because now I know I have it in me."
If I say that my problem with some Christians is that they act like that computer, I am sure I am not going to be understood. So, I will risk being mis-understood. Many Christians, and other good people, act so much like that computer that it is an embarrassing problem. Problem is that it is my problem.
