I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified
-- St. Paul, I Corinthians 2:2
I saw Jesus on a hill in a dreamI did not recognize himHe had no cross, or crowd or flockhe looked like an ordinary manwondering about a gay brothera gay brother who he loveda gay brother who was funa musician and a teacherand a good friend and handsome manand he stooped down and drew a figure in the sandtwo stick figures holding hands, a heart and a dove and he criedlike a mortal man who doesn't know the mercy of God, who knows the mercy of God? There's nothing to regret, from one begat without a mortal father, that a couple of men might not bear sons, but that the people know not what they do shuffling their feet, kicking up the dust, from which we all are made.
So Father, - I read the blog - yes, you made me look - then chuckle and I popped on to bust your chops about being a little measure driven - a little competitve. Not a bad thing - get's things done but, of course, can be taken to an unhealthy extreme. And as someone who also has these traits - I certainly can see them when they show up. Then - I see the first post and I am annoyed - I think. My first read through basically says that our actions don't really matter, God doesn't care and Jesus doesn't have his wounds or cross - following Him doesn't matter. (So hey - neither does sinful behavior - in this case homosexual behavior.) I read it several times - and maybe I'm just missing the subtle points - but I've decided that my first read is correct. In which case - so why bother? If Jesus didn't die and rise and there is no sin and our behavior doesn't count - then, even if there is a God - WHO CARES. What a sad and miserable state. If you beleive that - than why do you care what other people think? It doesn't matter. Unless - you just like a lot of people telling you this same drivel - to make you feel better - because somewhere - deep in your heart - you know - this doesn't make sense and you lack the courage to confront the small, quiet voice and follow HIM.I will pray for him. Keep up the good work Father - wish I could hear your homily this Sunday.
Kos and Coulter would never last. That'd be sort of like having Mary Matalin married to James Carville. Absurditas.(Oh, wait.)Actually, I've always wondered why that one worked out. Yet another sign that "love conquers all."
Actually, I see the first comment in this thread, almost as a parable. Jesus crying for others, who are searching, and hurting, perhaps lost, perhaps more found than we
Father, i just can't believe your getting all these comments for this post! hahaha
