"On My Last Gay Nerve" Sunday, The Religous Right(??), Daily Eye Candy

It's Sunday Blogger Friends. For some of us a time to worship and go to church, for some others of us, not so much. What a slippery slope religion is to us being gay. How do we wrap our minds around an institution that with it's left hand tells us that homosexuality is wrong, a sin, an abomination; and with it's right hand is telling us how we are all of sin, and how god so loved us, he sent his only Son to die for our sins, and his Son's greatest commandment above all else is to love one another. I have to lay the facts our straight, I am not a church going guy at this point in my life. I have in the past, and loved it, and hated it all at the same time. I feel I am very spiritual, but not very religious, and I thank God for it.

As I have been doing the past few Sunday's, let me tell you what's been getting on "My Last Gay Nerve" this week. Many religious people in my eyes, sure arent very spiritual. I define spiritual as being filled with the spirit of compassion, caring, love for our fellow man, (and woman,) and true agape love. In my years, I have studied a lot of "religions", and have found good and bad in most of them, however sometimes the bad just overshadows the good. The Religious Right are getting on my last gay nerve!! I am soooooo looking forward to THIS DOCUMENTARY. Please click on the link and check out this documentary titled, "God and Gays". The trailer alone tells a story, and I have to learn more. The theocratic United States of America we are seeing, is precicely why the founding fathers built a separation of church and state into our Constitution. You do not believe our current administration is leading us into a theocracy? Not entirely sure you believe the religious right and the Conservatives do not have the Republican Party in the palm of their hands? Well, then you must not have heard of a little gathering that was held this weekend in Washington, DC. It was called the "2006 Voters Value Summit." Who were the sponsors of this summit you ask? Just an old friend of the "family" of us gays, the "Family Research Council." You can't really recall what the goals of the Family Research Council are?? Well, in their own words, here is their "about us" page content......

FRC Action (formerly American Renewal), the non-profit and tax-exempt legislative action arm of Family Research Council, was founded in 1992 to educate the general public and cultural leaders about traditional American values and to promote the philosophy of the Founding Fathers concerning the nature of ordered liberty.

FRC Action is a 501(c)(4), non-profit education and lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C. FRC Action is dedicated to preserving and advancing the interests of family, faith, and freedom in the political arena.

FRC Action has underwritten the costs of video campaigns on public policy issues, supported advocacy advertising on these issues, and provided the nation's political parties with information on traditional American values.

FRC Action seeks to fortify the traditional foundations of civil society through efforts to educate, inform and influence elected officials in support of the country's historic ideals of equality under the law, and the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness on which the nation was founded.

Still believe in separation of church and state?? Still believe the Republicans want separation of church and state and are not in the religious right's back pocket? Let's look at some of the "Speakers and Entertainment" scheduled for the summit....Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Ann Coulter, Jerry Falwell, Kathryn Harris, Rick Santorum, and many more. Many of these people have tried to thwart gay rights at any chance they have gotten. Mitt Romney, current Governor of Massachussettes and presidential hopeful, disbanded the gay youth task force in Boston, and is working to repeal gay marriage in the state; Mike Huckabee, Governor of Arkansas, has worked hard to challenge any gay rights in his state; Ann Coulter, OMG Ann Coulter as a speaker, who says Bill Clinton is probably gay; what kind of nutwings are they running at this "summit??"

It's election time boys and girls, and the Republicans are bringing out their secret militia the christian right, to once again rally their base and keep control of the Congress in November. I have said this before, and I will say it again, as a gay man, I am afraid to keep the current administration in office any longer. Afraid for my rights, afraid for the rights and feelings of worthlessness thrown upon young and scared gay youth. Being pushed back into the closet or so scared their secret will come out, they take roads like suicide and violence to numb out the pain. I need to start the week with a better outlook, thanx for letting me do my weekly vent. I am sure I will have something else on "My Last Gay Nerve," next week. Please take the time to comment or email me with your opinions, disagreements, etc. I welcome open dialogue and all points of view, with the right not to change mine.

Time to get to bed blogger friends, another late post, but a long list of things to do on my day off today were accomplished. Have a great week, and enjoy some parting Eye Candy today from the beautiful boys at Beautiful Boy blog. I am trying to get this blog and website and other things in high gear here these next couple weeks, wish me luck..............GG
