The Armor of God

This morning I awoke to anotherís post
A man declaring Godís Holy War
Against an evil of which, I supposedly host

There is no question Iím a combatant
I carry the scars, born from a different
Battle of which I was also, forcibly sent

Tired of warring I came to MS
In order to take off my armor
Lay down my sword and rest

Please let me
Iím not as you avow
Your enemy

Balanced (My goal)

There is symmetry
In self-reflection
Life exemplified
Grace personified

God will fight for God, exactly right,

MS is about recovery and surviving the abuse.
Spiritual discoveries, in a positive, associative way, or a positive, dissociative way, are about personal development.

We thrive with our brothers, even though we do not agree with every part of each other's belief's.
Let us not make demands of each other, but instead see the rightness of each statement, and celebrate our recovery from sexual abuse.

Ever your companion,

yes, both my parents and the church did this to me

first, my parents tricked me into accepting responsibility for their abuse of me, and got me to participate when i was just a boy so i would feel responsible and shut up

then, our country's Prime Minister sent a letter to all churches and synagogues in this country condemning gays with the usual lies

i am both a survivor of incest and a gay man.

i am not a pedophile and i have family values

thank you very fucking much
anger anger anger
my boundaries are strong now
no bullshit

come near me and i will kill you haters
