When I faced confirmation as a young teen, I had to choose a new name from the Christian bible. I chose Luke because it was the only name that appeared both in the Christian bible and Star Wars. So many years later, unable to hide from the fact that good Christians want to murder my closest friend simply for being who he is, my wife of many years game me a secret that her mother gave her. Humbled and in tears I turned to the words of Christ.
“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” -Luke 22-42
I continue to try my best to do as I believe Christ has instructed. But when I face the reality that such a walk has very little to do with Christianity, I can no longer use that word any more than I can use the word Wiccan while the Frosts continue to spout their crap.
Be on notice, my wife says it is time for me to return & frankly I am sick of religion being used as an excuse to murder my best friend. It is coming and there is not a damn thing you can do to stop it.
