Wow, I have to say that many of you just sound ignorant of reality. But I guess that should not surprise me since this is a conservative blog.
I will post my original post so that you all have that perspective as well. Although I know nothing will change your perspectives on the "gay/equality" issue.
I do find it interesting that all of you and she will hide behind alias names. If you really are so brave and righteous then why hide?
For the record, Janna Darnelle Finkbeiner Anderson, is a real person and happens to be my ex-wife. I will not comment on all of the points of her blog due to the multitude of errors (like, I have full custody, because I don't) and a very subjective view of history and reality, but I would like to add a few thoughts to the discussion.
1. Like most, my coming out was a very complicated process of self discovery and of learning what truth and authenticity really are. I never felt that I was living in denial or a lie, but rather sexuality was a choice and I must be bisexual. I was part of a conservative subculture that not only promoted this dogma, but also created an atmosphere of fear. I did meet a man in my mid-30s and for the first time fell in love and experienced what unconditional acceptance and love was. Through this I could no longer remain in my marriage.
2. Fear is a very powerful emotion and to be honest has a crippling effect. I was a part-time pastor and our life revolved around church life and serving the lord. I was in fear of losing everything I knew: my friends, my job, and my kids. This reality did come true, except for losing my kids. I am glad that never happened.
3. My kids are thriving and doing very well emotionally and academically in spite of living in two completely different households having two parents with very different worldviews.
4. For the last 7 years I have wished my ex-wife would embrace her god and faith and find a way to move on and heal from the pains of the past. Unfortunately this has not happened.
And Like most of the comments it seems that the Church and Christians have no concept of love, acceptance, redemption, or of scripture.
