Source: President Obama’s Tenure Has Been More “Christian” Than His Critics Will Ever Admit
My Dear Brother in the Faith has hit another one dead on the button…this is a fantastic article and it summarizes soo much better than I can what my very own thoughts and feelings are regarding Barack Obama.
Full disclosure…I was a full on opponent of Obama in 2008. He has been incredible…and I cannot in fairness say that he surprised me. All I can truly say is he was/is himself…it is I who have changed…Hopefully I have grown and shrunk both, for both are necessary.
What John says…big time.
So many people these days judge me…they dramatically confuse my gender journey with some sort of sexual expression and/or indulgence…and there is not any sort of intersection between these two. Let me try to explain.
Like the graphic below says, sexuality for me is an expression of, a following result of something far greater and grander.
I think that sexuality is sacred and precious…and also the ultimate powerful created thing, for from sexuality a human being created in God’s Image can emerge…and no, that doesn’t mean that I think sex is for procreation only. But because that potential is there, the act itself is an act of being, and as such it is transformative…
…it is gonna change you, in essential fundamental ways.
Thus…for me? Sexuality that happens apart from true and lifelong committed love is simply hell, for it ultimately serves to sever the human soul from all relationships except relationship with self and self alone (which is the best description of hell that I can think of)…
Sexuality that happens in the context of a committed and lifelong monogamous relationship?
The closest thing to heaven that I have experienced this side of its Eternal Shores.
I know I am in a vast minority of people…those who both celebrate sexuality and its essential vital importance to a whole life…and also advocate its selective expression…as a symbolic act of worship and fidelity.
I love you, my Dearest Darling.
