Let It Be.

Hello Friends;

  I get so very tired.  So very tired.   There is something odd about a person who gets paid to rant and rave.  (Hey... I do it for free!)  The silly thing is that they are much like the evening news... if it bleeds, it leads.... and they get lots of money portray the extremes.  Case in point:  Rush Limbaugh, and this odd new person I'm hearing about named Linda Harvey.  They talk and talk, mostly putting their foot in their mouth as they rant and rave about whatever seems the most spectacular at the moment - and they seem to resent anyone having a different opinion to the point of bashing them.

  Well, I guess I have to step forward and say that I have a different opinion.  You see, I'm an adult male who has had nothing but misery from women.  I don't find them sexually attractive.  I do find males attractive.  So, by this - I'm now a horrible person, destined to be the downfall of mankind?  Oh yes... it won't be the war-mongers, or the "War Pigs" as Ozzy named them, who have nuclear weapons, biological weapons, who engage in genocidal campaigns, allow greed to starve women and children, .... aaargh!..... It won't be greedy stock and bond manipulators wiping out the economy and my 401k, or the politicians that sell our country right out from underneath our feet.  It won't be the depletion of the rain forests, the odd changes in the climate, the changes in the ocean ecology, or even earthquakes and tidal waves that wipe out nuclear plants.  Nope... it will be goofy ole me, struggling to find hope and love in this world in which I so often feel so very alone!

  Well, I'm a grown adult.  I'm not so easily bruised by the slings and arrows of the haters.  I laugh at them when they so blatantly butcher the very scriptures in which they claim describe their lofty state -- in specific, using Matt. 19:4-6 - which has now become a verse about "one man, one woman" rather than using the Hebraic Law to be cruel to one's wife.  Talk about missing the point.    But, frankly, these people are making me weary. 

  Why do they hate us so?    Why do people listen to them?    And why, amongst the huge number of crippling problems in this world - cancer, starvation, murder, hurt, heartache, fear, etc. - have they chosen to use their moments in the light to kick those of us who only want love?

Hello Randy
Like many before them, these people seem to need a 'hate figure' to draw attention away from the hypocrisy, emptiness and moral bankruptcy of their own positions. Us 'filthy gays' fulfill that position at this point in history, it seems. But equality has progressed for many of the previous hated groups, as society has grown up, and I have little doubt that the likes of Harvey will go the way of racists, misogynists - and those who threw Christians to the lions - into their well deserved place in the dustbin of history.
In the meantime - illigitimis nil carborundum!

Love & best wishes
Sammy B

Yes. We do seem to be the modern day 'whipping boy', taking the heat for the idiocy of.....
But, Sammy, does understanding it make it better? Again, I have a thick skin - I've made my mistakes and taken my lumps. I'd really like to see our little ones not have to suffer similar lumps.
I'm sad they will, though.

I'm sorry... I'm not making a very good response here to your wonderful comment. Like I said, this issue is grinding me a bit.

Hello Randy. If we homosexuals were to be the end of it all, it would have happened long ago. That is because we have been part of the population for ever. The whole sorry sad attempt to scapegoat homosexuals is because of fear from those who are afraid their world will change, not realizing it changes every day. In this country at one time homosexuality was not a stigma as it became, and for those who think there were no Gay cowboys on the plains...well try reading real history. It is easier for the doomsayers to claim falsehoods and make up horrific stories about those who are different than it is to actually learn about those people and their ways. Hugs

Hello again. Reading the told link, I am stunned by the line that God's standards never that means all the things that are in the bible we no longer do should be enforced..stoning people for adult and having slaves, all the dietary laws, well you get the point. Again they cherry picked a subject and worked the words to make their points seem reasonable and true. The saddest fact is this is written for children who may not have the maturity and education level to understand it is propaganda. This is where we need to stand up and correct them. Hugs

Hi Scottie;

Just now catching up on comments... I wonder; do you suppose the folks who use this type of stuff are open to correction?
