And so it goes. 

And so it goes. 

Words about stuff about words. 

Why did I write OUT?

 

 

Chasing the Devil is a documentary chronicling the lives of gay and lesbian people who’ve been sent to reconditioning camps. It was filmed in 2008. More recently, Reverend Charles Worley of North Carolina “was videotaped standing at the pulpit of the Providence Road Baptist Church on May 13 calling for an electrified fence to be built to keep the nation's LGBT community. There Worley said they can "die off.” He received a standing ovation from his followers.(http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/05/27/11908278-standing-ovation-greets-pastor-charles-worley-who-made-anti-gay-statements?lite)

 The Anti-Gay movement is alive and well in the U.S. http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-files/ideology/anti-gay/the-anti-gay-movement

 

This is why I had to write OUT. Until those who condemn LGBT people see that love is love, these things will continue to happen, innocent people will suffer, and our word will be poorer for it. The only way I can see for them to understand is to picture themselves in the shoes of the LGBT minority, to feel, through the love story of Chris and Carmen, the wrenching horror of being denied the person you love. As the Bible says, “do unto others as you would have them d o unto you.”
