because our own self acceptance and wider scope of healing seems to hinge upon the acceptance of the wider community
I think you nailed it with that statement - which encourages yet saddens me as well. Depending on where/what our "wider community" is and who it is made up of...
Thanks for sharing this, S/L. As always, I enjoy your thought-provokers.
Keep letting the music flow.
What a drag that Christianity has become the most immoral generation ever.
Well ... sure seems so of the "Christian Right" (as in right wing - not right/wrong) - but sure understand the sentiment, Mike. But for me - I'm still proud to wear the name "Christian", hope always to be. Not proud at all of what others who try to state the same are being caught up in - but I think it's a good thing God is allowing not only that they be caught in the act - but that it is so public. It's about time some people were knocked down and the rest of the world hear they are no better or worse than anyone else. We're all in this together. It's called "family".
Thanx, guys. Good discussion!
