Diversity Creates Balance

Diversity Creates Balance

The nature of God's great creation is one of diversity. Wonderful and mystical variances are found throughout the universe that make for a perfect balance in nature.

I believe homosexuality is a genetic disposition and a perfectly natural expression for a certain percentage of human beings. Homosexuals, as well as heterosexuals, are the way God created them and every person regardless of race, nationality, sexuality or appearance greatly embellishes the beautiful diversity of this world.

Every person's God-given right is to live the life they desire to live, as long as they don't violate the God-given rights of another to do the same or the laws of the society in which they live.

A Manifesto! The Time Has Come!

A Manifesto! The Time Has Come!

I have made a decision. I will no longer debate the issue of homosexuality in the church with anyone. I will no longer engage the biblical ignorance that emanates from so many right-wing Christians about how the Bible condemns homosexuality, as if that point of view still has any credibility. I will no longer discuss with them or listen to them tell me how homosexuality is "an abomination to God," about how homosexuality is a "chosen lifestyle," or about how through prayer and "spiritual counseling" homosexual persons can be "cured." Those arguments are no longer worthy of my time or energy.

Gay is a Gift

Gay is a Gift

In January of 2009, Oprah Winfrey devoted an hour of her daytime talk show to exploring spirituality. … The episode featured a panel of spiritual teachers, including Rev.d Ed Bacon, a rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California.

During the broadcast, the panel answered questions from audience members and those video-conferencing from home. One of those home callers, a 33-year-old gay man from Atlanta named Sedrick, explained how growing up in a Christian home in rural Alabama caused him to see his sexuality as a hindrance in developing a fulfilling spiritual life.

In response, Rev. Bacon said simply and lovingly, “Being gay is a gift from God.”
