My Journey as a Christian, Gay Affirming Lesbian

September 21, 2018

I was born in Queens, New York on 4/22/46. My Parents met at Church. Dad was the organist and Mom was in the Choir. My brother and I were raised in the ways of the Lord.
In 1955 my family moved from Queens to Shoreham, on the North shore of Eastern Long Island. When I was fourteen I wanted to become a minister, but the Lutheran Church did not ordain women ministers at that time. Though disappointed, I was not going to let an ignorant rule stop me from serving my Lord. I’d find another way.
However, in 1973 I realized I was a lesbian. I was tormented. How could I be a Christian, serve the Lord and be an active lesbian? The Church said homosexuals were doomed to Hell. I knew all the passages the Church used to prove this, but I could not “buy” into their beliefs.
In 1976 I was married to a wonderful woman, in a ceremony in our home, by a Unitarian minister. Our sixteen year marriage ultimately failed, but we remain best of friends to this day. Since then I have lived alone where I worked as a bookkeeper until 2008, when I retired. I work part time during the day and continue to stay active in gay affirmation & celebration of gay love/marriage.
I have dedicated my life to my Lord, focusing on helping gays/lesbians know that they are loved by God and heirs to His Kingdom. My book, “Is God a Gay Basher”, available on Amazon, takes the reader on my journey through life and shows how to find peace with God, just as you are: gay.

Medical Malpractice To Those Who Do Not Abuse Opiates.

May 24, 2018

I am not unconcerned for the drug addiction epidemic in our country or for those who are addicted. However, I must speak up for those, like me, who responsibly take drugs like Xanex for medicinal reasons (like a diabetic who takes insulin) and NOT to get a “high”. My friend of 55+ years, a retired nurse of 84 wise years, with whom we keep our friendship thriving, though she has lived in Colorado the last 45 years, had this to say after her “yearly update” email of last week and my “update reply”.

“Sorry about the delay responding to your email. It sounds like you’ve
been dealing with some complicated health issues resulting from some
complicated turmoil during the process of wanting to be healthy..

Thank goodness things seem to be working out now, but with such chaos
that never should have taken place. I’m sorry you had such an ordeal.
Now that things appear to be working out for you, let’s hope and let’s
pray all shall be well and that you will be feeling tip top, minus the
outrageous costs involved getting there.

Undoubtedly, our health system is out of order. The financial aspects of
it are beyond reason. The focus on opiates, which sounds like a good
thing, is actually creating new problems affecting so many people. Not
very long ago, those dealing with pain in their lives were encouraged to
use opiates, often in prescribed increasing dosages, by doctors and
their “benefactors”, the pharmaceutical companies, who are known to
encourage doctors to push their products. My oh my.

One of my friends recently had shoulder surgery and found the prescribed
pain medicine he was given wasn’t helping much, particularly when he was
undergoing physical therapy. He was told, “Your pain isn’t as bad as you
think it is.” Egads!!! Is this what our health system has come to? This
same fellow with the shoulder pain had been wounded in combat in Vietnam
when a Medic.

Let’s hope a compassionate and sensible resolution is in sight…an
affordable one too.”

 

I hope this reaches the DEA, our Government Officials, Medical Doctors, Pharmacies and all who are being treated like addicts when WE ARE NOT!!

 

 

Right Wing Conservative Christian Confusion.

May 10, 2018

Have you ever noticed that right wing, conservative Christians quote more from the letters of Paul when it comes to the issues of homosexuality and women’s submission to men “as their head” than they do from the Gospel of Jesus? It is as if the “gospel of Paul”, who doubtlessly preaches salvation through Christ, is more important. Let us remember that not every book of the Bible carries equal weight.

Take a sample read of my book and see how Right Wing Christians misuse the “clobber passages” and the Creation Account to justify their prejudice.
