I usually consider myself a conservative. Actually an evangelical conservative.
But maybe I'm not.
I have some gay friends ... and they are super nice people.
Well, years ago I had a lesbian friend who was struggling with her lifestyle because she knew some very hateful and even violent lesbians.
So then I was against lesbians.
(And frankly I cannot imagine being of that persuasion.)
But I am growing older and wiser... and, I think, more liberal.
Well, more accepting, anyway.
And also, I've decided that I don't have to be for or against anything.... unless God tells me directly what to be for or against.
Some of you will say that He HAS told me directly... through His Word.
But when I think of Jesus ... and how he would think about things, well, I've decided not to be so dogmatic.
(The Merriam-Webster definition of dogmatic is: "characterized by or given to the expression of opinions very strongly or positively as if they were facts."
I am for the Bible being the Word of God. IT IS.
And I am for one man and one woman defining marriage...
but for all my gay friends, and all the people who love gay people, I cannot burn the rainbow flag.
If they want to be married... it is okay with me.
So let's get on with our lives...

Maybe I have too much time on my hands. (NO!!!!! ---- I used to have NO time on my hands -- so don't take time away from me now!!!) ...
If you live in Kentucky you tell folks which county you're from, not which town, well, unless, I guess you're from Louisville or Lex...
