I am gay. Please don’t judge me until you get to know me!
I want to thank the United Church for being there when I was searching for a Church. I know that I am a good person, and for the Catholic church to tell me I am going to hell because I choose to love a man, is WRONG. It is wrong because I did not choose to be gay. It is wrong because there is not enough Love in this world. It is wrong because what I choose to do in my bedroom is my business. My happiness is my business.
I have a dog named Sydney Crosby, who loves me unconditionally. Maybe if more people had dogs there would be less hate in the world. I feel blessed by have him in my life.
I have a lot of Love to share with my friends, Crosby, and hopefully before I die, another lover. Someone to share my life and love with. I do not judge other people, *please* do not judge me until you get to know me!
