Pope Benedict comes to the United States today and will be greeted by our illustrious leader, George W. Bush.
I have a lot of mixed emotions regarding the Catholic church and the Pope. I'm a practicing gay Catholic and as you can imagine, quite hurt by the many hateful and hurtful things the church and this pope continues to say about LGBT people. I'm convinced that if Jesus Christ walked the Earth right now, he'd he ashamed at the vile hatred flowing from the church. We're all God's kids here, gay or straight. When will the Church realize this?
The divisive nature of the church has caused many to become turned off by religion and Catholicism. The church has lost a significant amount of power, I mean who listens after the abuse crisis . . . and when you have gay relatives and loved ones, you're going to love and support them first. Ok, I'm done with discussing this guy.
Caught up with my good friend and ex-girlfriend tonight. Yes, you read right...my ex-girlfriend. She's the only woman I've ever dated. This was waaaaay back in high school. I'm proud to say I'm a gold star aka never had sex with a woman before!
It was great to chat with her. She's coming up to beantown with my brother soon. Possibly the first weekend in May cuz my bro may help me move. Yay!
