    Steve, you are so flipping amazing! I loved this.

    By the way, just saw this in the twitter sidebar

    “My rule of thumb: if I can tell I’m not gonna be able 2 stop thinking abt it, I talk 2 the person, even if it makes me sound a little nuts.”

    That is exactly my rule of thumb, too, and while it’s made for some awkward moments, it has almost always turned out better than when I let something fester.

    Very nicely written. I appreciate your perspective greatly. Your the only one I know of who writes about this subject so honestly and yet also so respectfully. Thank you.

    I read your blog in MYYearofFaith. Thanks for your work. Christians swim against the tide when we espouse love for one another in the midst of our convictions, not by abandonning our convictions. The greatest acts of love exhibited by Christians involved the call to love despite our differences. I recall reading that Mother Terese ministered to post-abortive women in Russia. She did not need to agree with their views on abortion nor to require that they abandon their acceptance of abortion to love them. The world right now delights in pinning one against another. Perhaps it always had, but the internet provides a bigger platform for good and bad. I love my family members who are homosexual. I have to confess, that personal experience can be blurred when I read some of the really agressive activities encouraged by homosexual activists. Thank you for choosing to honor God in dealing with your experience as a homosexual man. I wish you the Peace of Christ which is beyond all understanding.

    “I know I’m supposed to be frustrated with the Church for not letting me get married to another man, but I don’t feel that way. I might as well be frustrated with the Church for not allowing me to get pregnant. She couldn’t if she tried, because she doesn’t have the authority. The Church has the power to teach the truth, but not to create it.” — You say it so well.

    is it true that you had a little sister who died very young?


    1. No, but I’m very curious as to who might have told you such a thing.
