I'm furious. That Richard guy is my age but he looks better.

However, he did say what I tried to say yesterday... Hang Tough.

No further comment required from me.

One of the most touching things I've ever seen!

Just think how much more this could be if we reach out giving knowledge our Lord Jesus Christ can not only save a life, but our Soul too!

Thanks Provencetown!

I know that I'm not the target audience for these "It Gets Better" videos... but the three from Ptown are the best I've seen yet.

Yes, I confess, I do watch them even though I don't really "need" to. I'm planning on being on earth for awhile.( Unless I find $200G for one of Richard Branson's space flights) ;-)

JC, I'm sure you know that homophobic people use the Bible, God's name, and even HIS name to condemn Queer people.
I'm only human myself, but I hesitate to call such people Christians.

That was nice JC. Quite emotional.

...seeing Coop raise his hand!

Yes, I know that there are a lot of Christian people out there that use the 'bible', God's name etc. to condemn homosexuality...I'm a 30 year victim of their verbal slander, rejection and repression! So I want to somehow make a difference. I'm a GAY CHRISTIAN...

A turning-point in my life is recent...I won't take it anymore from those people who say they are Christian but continue to spread hate and rejection...I respect the fact they can have their point of view...however they cannot use modern translation of passages to judge me or anyone else that's gay. If looked at carefully in original Greek and Hebrew, taking into consideration of Historical and cultural accounts of the day...the 'church' is wrong in not standing up on LOVE unconditionally as Christ taught! It's a bit more complicated than just my statement, but in my recent reconciliation of my faith...the Holy Spirit affects my heart on this...Jesus accepts me AS I AM! No man can say or do anything to take that from me.

...sorry if it sounds like my little 'soap-box' ...but I truly believe this with deep sincerity...in having compassion and understanding for all people who struggle in coming to terms with their sexuality.

Sing it Roberta! (if I have the artist correct) 'What the world needs now is Love, sweet Love...'

...by the way, Your welcome Jimm, I enjoyed sharing...

JustinO'Shea said...

BTW, JC, I concur with your comments about bible banging bullies.

I am who I am. . ."created in the image and likeness of God, thru Baptism identified with His Son Jesus" accepted and loved. . .Yep!

As another sang : "No, you can't take that away from me."

...Thanks Justin! Blessings to you bro!

I hear all the time in mainstream Christian Radio, of 'churches' and Christians alike taking their interpretation of scripture and standing on a podium of righteousness, almost like the pharisee of Jesus' time...calling their point of view 'the truth'.

This breaks my heart!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's just the point of view...I feel called to share that you can be 'Christian' and gay...the two can blend. It's what I believe so strongly that if those whom have reverted to ending their lives would have had the chance to hear "It's OKAY"....It may have saved their lives and worked toward building hope in Christ!

"Be the Light" ...Justin, and all of you here at the 'Dunes' who believe.... :)
