Cranio-Rectal Inversion

This may not be the best illustration for what I am about to discuss, but it is apt. This is the chronic disease of the political class in our nation and also many in the evangelical Christian community. Cranio-Rectal Inversion occurs when people refuse to recognize that the world has changed, the culture war has been lost and it's time to regroup.

This is where I am at today. I am going to say this once. I hope you get my point. I hate repeating myself.

If your child, whether young or full grown adult, comes out to you as gay, you need to listen to them. You need to love them and you need to love them regardless of how they are dealing with it. You may not know it now, but the day will come when you need them. This is no time for conditional love. This is the time for love, understanding and emotional support. You do not have to approve of their behavior (if there is any) to do any of this.

They will always need their family and they will need you! So pull your head outta yer ass and just do it. It will not be as painful as you might think and you both might learn something.

Church, we need to get out in front of this and be Jesus to those we love in our families and among our friends. This might seem awkward, but if your kids bring their gay friends, partners and spouses home to meet you, you need to love them the way Jesus loves you. Get with the program.

End of diatribe. Ghog Out!
