Repressing Feelings

I heard a response to the public awareness given to that group made up of a mix of con artists, and those who actually want LGBT people to commit suicide (metaphysically or physically), known as the “Ex-Gay” movement. The suggestion this individual said, was that treating being LGBT was like alcoholism, and those feelings should be repressed.

This was my response

Imagine someone insisting that you never do something natural like smiling, because its sinful, and any inclination to smile should be ignored, and any time you give into the urge you should feel intensely guilty. Being attracted to someone of the same sex is as natural and normal as smiling, and there is nothing wrong with acting on those feelings.

Musing about how to be a good citizen

Be wise, be knowledgable, be compassionate, be understanding. Know that there are things in this world you may find confusing and strange but you should not fear them just because you do not understand them. Be a good steward of the world that gave you existence, and sustains your physical and spiritual life. Love your children and accept them, no matter whether they turn out the way you’d like or not, and always put them before your beliefs.

When looking for a president look for someone who represents, a true philosopher king……not some slimy amoralist who’ll say whatever he thinks will get him elected.
