A beautiful morning, indeed.
Well, Tiger Woods was denied a Major… Was asking myself whether it mattered that much to me. I follow the stats, but the sports? Not at all. Cannot even grace the term ‘arm chair athlete’. That’s me!
The Tiger coughs, for once, and Focus on the Family sells its Ex-gay programme to Exodus International, because of budgetary constraints. Yeah, I am in
Another week dawning, what with Monday and everything.
Overcast at the moment. Still, cool, promise of sun… Don’t know when it will really rain. Rain like it can, a drenching deluge flooding the valleys, sweeping off all the dust. I am kind of impatient for it. Seems as if we are being teased. Teased, always. I will complain of the red mud soon as it comes. I am human. Very.
Of my friend who is Gay and Christian, I was musing about the conflict going around in his head… What I think he thinks about being both gay and loving god, when all the evidence from his outside world seems to suggest that gay and Christian is a contradiction. What I think he thinks.
I was ruthless enough to cut myself off from faith. But that was MY solution. Cant work for everyone. Wont work with him. But in the meanwhile, he is in the process of working out a solution. Because he is conflicted, and it is affecting him. My problem is, how do I support him, without encouraging him to abandon his faith, like I did? Sigh…! Seems like I have to re-examine what I think about faith…! Why? Because it is important to some people, it has to be important to me too. I cannot just go around faith bashing. As bad as gay bashing, that.
Great, isn’t it? Seems as if our beautiful world is awash with examples of how logical ill-logic is. And how the case of absolutes never holds for us human beings. We seem ready to tear them apart at any and all opportunities.
Now, have a good day. I am going to read some poetry, and then settle down to do some work. Have a beautiful day, and may the week bless you.
