Sign of the Times

It has always been the height of ignorance to me to hear the Christian Right claim that gay marriage damages traditional marriage between a man and a woman. This sign photographed at an Episcopal Chruch says it all.

Those who think that all Christians share the beliefs of the Christian Right should pay particular attention to the photograph. The Episcopal Church is just one of  many Christian denominations that put their emphasis on the love of God and don't get caught up in trying to play God by deciding for themselves who the sinners are.

  1. Jack...

    I am so proud of my fellow Episcopalians when I see signs like this in front of St. Mary Magdalene and our Churches.

    To find the lost, to heal the broken.
    The feed the hungry, to rebuild the nations,
    To bring peace among peoples,
    To make music in the heart.

    Are the final lines of the Christmas Blessing at Trinity Memorial, my home church and they also contain the message of our Missions of hospitality to our LGBTQ brothers and sisters; folks living with HIV AIDS; feeding families; medical missions to El Salvador; and making music that soothes the pain and heals the soul.

    1. And proud you should be Jerry. The Episcopal church is living out the true meaning of Christianity while Baptists and other fundamental groups are betraying the Spirit of Christ.

  2. I am new to blogging, both the reading and the writing. In any even, my voice fits somewhere in this community, I am not sure where just yet.


I deeply regret that I must reinstate the verification process for those who want to leave comments on my blog. This is due to the intolerable amount of spam that spammers are attempting to leave on the blog.

At the same time I am changing settings so that those of you who have a Google Blogger ID or other recognized blogger ID will not have to have your comments moderated. My hope is this will encourage more readers to take the time to comment. The fact is I want to read comments with those of you who disagree with me as well as those of you who agree with me. All I ask is that you keep your comments clean and non-threatening.

The only reason I take the time to write this blog is to spur your thoughts and comments. Please do not let the spammers cause you not to comment. I know entering the verification words and numbers is a pain in the ass, but I hope you will not let the spammers cause you not to comment.

I still very much look forward to hearing from you.

Anyone can comment on what I write in this blog. Regretfully, the recent amount of spam in my email account as required that I reinstate the word verification process for comments which I personally hate.

But at the same time I have loosened the comment moderation process so that those of you who have a Google Blogger ID or other recognized blogger ID will no longer need to wait for your comment to be moderated. I'm hoping this will tempt you to take the trouble to comment.

The truth is I want respectful comments both from those who agree with me and those who do not. All I as is that you keep comments to the point, clean and non-threatenting.

I look forward to hearing from each of you.
