Bertold, Congratulations! You are part of the new changes and a tribute to you both. My best wishes for a healthy, strong, happy 35 more years.
Thanks so much for all the good wishes guys! It's a bit of an anti-climax at this point. Deciding if I should wear shorts or jeans. I'll have to go to confession first, of course.
That's wonderful, Bertold! Congratulations on a truly momentous event.
Bertold, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Wish you all the best.
After 35 amazing years together we're tying the knot legally (even though we tied it for ourselves way back when). Went out and got the marriage license last week.
Yes, Loren, you are correct. It's a slow, baby steps process to enlightenment.
Perhaps we will be lucky to soon see a surge in atheism take place in the same rapid manner in which marriage equality advanced. We can only hope.
I have a feeling in my gut that religion is on the verge of receiving a serious backlash from sane-thinking people, both non-religious AND the moderately religious. Rational people are fed up with extremist ideologies both abroad and here in the US. Rational people don't take kindly to churches denying access to birth control via health care plans or wanting special rights to discriminate against whomever they choose. It's not only uncivil, but it's undemocratic.
With every "deeply held religious belief" and "religious freedom" legislation being trumpeted as the cause du jour, the fundamentally religious keep digging themselves into a bigger hole.
Yeah, that's a refreshing message coming from a clergyman. It would be nice to hear more from many others like him in that "fire and brimstone" style delivery.
But what this really blatantly shows is that people create their own personal gods who will conform to and stand for everything they personally believe. The god of the bible says to stone homosexuals? Not my loving god!
These church goers may learn to not be hypocrites, but they sure are being intellectually dishonest with themselves. I wish they could realize that. Anyway, if a church is preaching and promoting tolerance to its sheep, I guess I can't complain.
I have to admit, as much as I dislike what Joliet Jake in the Blues Brothers referred to as Jive Assed Preachers, this guy makes a salient point I can't disagree with. At least his religion didn't completely strip him of his humanity.
