Over these past years while blogging, I have had the pleasure of communicating with fellow bloggers. It was almost a bonding experience, especially in the earlier days when many of us were mentally preparing ourselves to come out. I often found myself worrying about and feeling sorry for, gay men under huge amounts of stress because they lived in ultra religious areas. Mostly they had family and friends who were evangelical.
I think gay people in those areas can release themselves of any guilt they feel has been placed upon them. The evangelical portion of Christianity, particularly in the states has become so hypocritical with their messages, so phony that it is beyond laughable. Many of the statements their leaders come out with are like a comedy sketch, the views are so uninformed and embarrassingly ignorant. I think they have such an obsession with their ideology that they would align themselves with Hitler if it helped their agenda. Gay people should now see that for these religious nuts, living a strict life according to the bible, is very much "do as I say, not as I do". Really enough is enough, they can go screw themselves, these religious zealots are still pissed about losing the argument whether the earth is flat or not, as far as I know a ship has never tipped over the edge. LGBTQ people have to realize that you can't argue with stupid. They are clinging to a viewpoint that is irrelevant, hopefully one day that viewpoint will become extinct, just like the dinosaurs that they say is a hoax and never existed!

I had a friend who was more gay friendly than anyone else I knew. we lived in each others pockets and supported each other through thick and thin.
I few years ago she found god....and now I no longer exist to her
John, sadly I have heard this same story many times. I no longer put any effort into making friends with people who follow this version of Christianity, it's a waste of time.
One of the finer points about writing and keeping a blog is finding others with similar restless thoughts and friending them. They make the best company during difficult days. I too feel for gay men and women who live in areas where there may not be much support for them, or where religious zealots may make things difficult. I think it's up to people like you and me to write and offer hope and resources for them to get the support they need. Well said.
Walter, thank you. Yes I would hope very much that gay people in areas like that, would find the support they need.
What a great post! No, it is never successful arguing with stupid. We can only hope with time that attitudes will change.
Michael 54, some people will never change no matter how much information they have. It's these people that we have to ignore.
