I am a Christian whom also happens to be gay. I believe most Christians I have seen hold very little resemblance to Jesus Christ. I aim to fix this in my own life. I plan to practice what I preach as much as humanly possible.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
What Gives Me Hope
The Bible, Anonymous, knowing that my heart hasn't grown cold yet.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
File Eminent Domain on all unoccupied Housing, factories, and business'. Place homeless, unemployed, and qualified college grads in them to run them all. Reduce the exorbitant land taxes and give 501c3 Non profit status to all farmers that produce and sell in home state.
What/who changed my life and why
I took in 3 homeless people, there names are not important. One had 2 children but was raked over the coals by the court child support system. he could neither take care of himself or his 2 children. The second was a wonderful young man. However, he enjoyed marijuana. I saw how the court system treated him. They literally ruined his life over smoking joints. The 3rd was a Schizophreniac whom could not afford his meds. He eventually had an episode that landed him in prison. I testified that he had mental conditions and asked the Judge to be lenient. My pleas were to no avail. 3 year sentence in prison for a non violent offense. I have realized how hard it is for the homeless and the outcast. I can never forget was done to just these three men in the name of the judicial system without compassion. Things need to change one way or the other. We can not simply let insanity, lack of compassion, or lack of reason, rule our country.
1 Corinthians 13
If I speak in human or angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
