Not that kind of Christian

In case you weren’t sure, I’m a Christian.  But wait, I’m notthat kind of Christian. I’ve felt it and said it dozens of times. Have you? You know, when someone finds out you are a Christian and you feel like you must clarify, or worse, apologize? We see the pictures on Facebook. We read the stories on HuffPost. We watch the videos on YouTube. We hear the stories of people hurt deeply. ...more

Dear Salvation Army, You Don’t Deserve My Charity This Christmas

Christmas is coming, and this is the time we all think about which charities to support and how to give to the less-fortunate.

Born this way; my belief in being born gay.

We are all born a certain way.  With a certain genetic code that decides what color hair we will have, will it be straight or curly, how tall will we be, how stout will we be.  It tells us what color eyes we will have, hazel, green, brown or blue.  Or in the case of my friend Tanja, one blue and one brown.  Actually, Tanja has one blue eye and her other eye is half brown and half blue.  It is impossible NOT to look her in the eyes.  Our DNA decides if we will be born with all of our body parts and brains fully functioning, or if we are missing a chromosome, or ...more

Wait what? Did you say you want to join the Marines???

Poor Bluebell.  She cried.  She cried as her 17 year old son The Hunter walked out the front door with a Marine Corps recruiter to go take a "practice" ASVAB test.Let me back up a bit, that is actually the middle of the story....more
