Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness

For the past year, while writing my memoir as part of my therapy treatment for PTSD I  decided to create this blog site.  My intentions were to give advocacy support for other victims of workplace abuse.

Over time, as I expanded my vision for helping others I found myself blogging about a number of different topics, causes, or whatever came to mind on a particular day. 

Recently I’ve been examining the issues surrounding “Gay Rights” in America. I even went out on a limb to try to give advocacy support to a teenage family member who believes she is gay. 

My support for her would cause strife in my family and even my mother accusing me of being gay, this was due to my dogged persistence in getting my niece’s voice heard.

After tossing and turning all night I woke up this morning and decided to blog about my experience, although it’s a sensitive topic to talk about, “Gay Rights.”

At the sacrifice of severing ties with certain family members, I stand firm on my conviction to serving God, which requires me to continue my support for helping other’s achieve equality.  This includes my support for “Gay Rights!”

For the record I’m not gay and I don’t care to engage in conversations regarding the “sexual acts” or activities of homosexuality. 

While championing for gay rights I’ve learned this is one of the primary reasons why those who considers themselves to be “normal” shun away from LBGTs, along with their “extreme” behavior.

Furthermore, those who defend the Holy Bible have used it as a weapon to attack our children and adults who have learned to live a life of duality.

I’m a firm believer that no one should be denied their right to the pursuit of happiness and this was a shared belief of the founders of the Constitution.

…all men are created equal, that they are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”…

Children are our future, so  I encourage you to be open minded to listen to what they have to say.  If a child is still a virgin yet can relate to their sexual orientation they may have already discovered their true identity.  The documentary, "The Christine Jorgensen Story" may give you an idea of where I'm coming from.

Step out on faith and open your eyes to try to see life through the eyes of someone who is gay or is struggling with defining their sexual  identity.  When you do you might just discover something you never knew about yourself, that you still love them regardless!!
