Tom I'm thrilled to see so many HETEROS, CHURCHES and BLACKS
speaking out STRONGLY on behalf of gay equality a.k.a. "the marriage
issue." EXACTLY what stalwart activists like ourselves have claimed as
the necessary path to victory. Don't you think that our voices over
these many years have helped FOMENT such strident calls? That our
analysis of WHY gay rights is of fundamental IMPORT to the human
species' happiness AND survival, has finally sunk in to the Collective
Conscience...a la the "Butterfly Effect"?
For if you truly believe you have something IMPORTANT to tell the
world, all it takes is simple faith that your good words will
eventually find ears that listen, minds that comprehend, and hearts
that bind! At least, that is MY philosophy so painfully practiced. My
teeth may be half gone, and the remainder well on their way to
Neverland, I may be socially isolated and ignored at best, facing
possible homelessness and premature disease/death due to INTENTIONAL neglect by our arrogantly corrupt gov't and medical system...but I have always kept my faith intact.
For it is only through tiresome tribulation that we are tested, and in
so testing, we come to know ourselves worthwhile and even essential to
the social fabric. It is this New Age I've so long dreamed about and
fought for: an age where homosexuals are revered for their courage and
long suffering by our hetero nemeses. I have spoken/written/posted time
and time again, how VITAL is homosexual dignity towards the fulfillment
of ALL people, regardless of sexual inclination. It is the ESSENCE of
brotherly/sisterly love, and thus the downfall of patriarchal control
whose main source of power is the threat and practice of violence as
rendered by uppity males (to put it mildly).
Now, to HEAR hetero leaders of black churches
grasp that most basic (yet elusive) significance behind homosexual
liberation is most hopeful...indeed, incredibly UPLIFTING. And HOW they
say it, how they convey this importance is so much in the fashion of
how YOU, me, and a handful of other dedicated gay activists have said
it FIRST, and for so many years.
I KNOW our voices have been heard...this is beyond coincidence, this is
our dreams of gay liberation coming forth to blossom, thanks to our
dedicated nurturing and defending our sacred garden against all
intruders (no matter how frightening).
It has been--and continues to be--quite a thrill, riding the waves of cyberspace with you, my true-lavender ally, Thomas Keske.
And to think our comradely relations started way back in 1997, when I
discovered your bold voice on the Internet. We have yet to meet in
person, but I certainly look forward to THAT great day. Seems we'll
meet face-to-face FIRST via video-conference, but what-the-hey!
This message is DEFINITELY going into my blog, for inspiration is
clearly guiding my keyboard. AND I'm typing from a coffeehouse...my
first blog entry composed away from my humble domicile, Have netbook
will travel! (Will my fantasy finally come true, of being a renegade
activist on the run? Stay tooned!)
A government is only as good as its operating system.
