A soul mate speaks out

A big thanks to Pisco for pointing me to this letter in the Boston Globe. And you are right Pisco, it does sound like it could have been written by me:

God's gay child

LOVE AND let love.

God gave me a gift, a wonderful son who happens to be gay. God does not give inferiors gifts. God does not make mistakes. This little boy that God gave to me is now a fine young man. But my son is treated like a second-class citizen by my church. Maybe my state constitution will treat him likewise. I pray that it will not.

If you had a gay loved one in your family you would be a better person. You would be sensitive to the discrimination gays endure. You would realize that they, too, are entitled to mutual love.

God will continue to send gay babies. We must take them into our hearts and our lives. That would please God.


Word of warning to all those so-called Houses of God that preach homophobia in the name of a loving God: There are lots more moms where we came from. Stop messin' with our kids!
