Recently, I have found myself daily at homocon: the blog of a conservative gay man. That's right -- they do exist. I know many in the Christian Community are completely uncomfortable around (or too often blatantly hateful toward) those whose sexual orientation doesn't line up in the traditional guy-girl way, but I have just never felt this way. The way I see it, if Jesus Himself could befriend some of the dregs of society, why should I feel like any human being is somehow beneath my notice and unworthy of any kind of positive attention? I have over the years been fortunate enough to have the friendship of a few gay men, and though I don't agree with all of their choices, I certainly don't consider them to be any more inherently evil than any of the other sinners here on this Earth. Today homocon has posted his thoughts in defense of Christians and their political views. GO READ IT.
And I missed it! I don't think I actually ate any chicken at all yesterday -- and that's very odd for me. I will just have to make up for it by having chicken for both lunch and dinner today. Anyway, if you want a good laugh, go check out the website... they actually say "chickens are people too". Hmm... and I always thought chickens were chickens. I guess that just shows how much I know!
The above slogan probably doesn't make a lot of sense to most of you, but if you have ever tried to fly in and out of Love Field in Dallas, you have seen the Wright Ammendment in action. Love Field is a smaller-than-DFW-sized airport that handles all of Southwest Airlines' business to and from Dallas. Years ago, the Wright Ammendment was put into place because (as I understand it) the big guys at DFW didn't want this little airport to cut in to their profits. Now anyone flying out of Love Field can only fly so far without having to get off their plane, claim their luggage, check their luggage again, go back through security, and check in for another flight. If it sounds like a pain in the butt, that's only because it is. HOWEVER there may be an end in sight.
