Homosexuality Is Not A Disease Or A Mental Illness
It is important for YOU to know that one of my best friends
is gay. I love him like a brother. He has a Masters of
Divinity from a prestigious private college. He has made
me laugh. He has made me smile. He has heard my cries.
He has shown me kindness and compassion above any other.
He has traveled with me on many adventures that I wish to
share, and some adventures that I care not to share.
Wherever we were, wherever my curiosity took me,
whatever thought came to my mind, whatever inspired me-
Michael went with me. And, sometimes he should have
stayed home. But, like a true friend, he joined me.
And, we traveled together, Michael and me.
You can’t take that from me.
My concern for my friend, for my brother, transcends the
logic of this society. How can you love some one who is
gay? How can you love some one who isn’t normal? How
can you love some one like that? Well- here it goes:
You are asking me to condemn some one who has never
hit me, never swore at me, never beat me, never threatened
me. You are asking me to condemn some one who has
never betrayed me, never humiliated me, never stole from
me, never raped me. You are asking me to condemn some
one who has never threatened to take my life, never called
me a bitch or a whore or ‘white trash’. You are asking me
to condemn a person that has shown me unconditional love
and unconditional acceptance. Though we are miles apart,
he is always on my mind. When I could not find him, I
prayed for him. When I could not see him in person, I
called him on the phone. When he would not respond to
me, I threatened to publish pictures from our camping trips.
Like a brother, my thoughts are with him; my thoughts go
with him; my prayers for him are never ending. And-
you ask that I not bring up his name, his marriage partner’s
name. You ask that I denounce homosexuality. You tell
me that I am a sinner because I love and accept my brother.
I will not. Amen. I love you, Michael and Chad!
