What a journey and a process for you, learning and growing with much pain it sounds like, and loss. Even though many of us have had similar stories and journeys that are here, I am always touched by the details of the story of each individual. It makes us all that much more human. We are such a family of sorts here, and I have never met anyone from the Czech Republic, as a native or a transplant! It sounds like your life is taking a positive turn for you, which is a blessing. Hope to see you around frequently- Peace! Vanessa :love: :love: :)

Dear Don in Pargue,
I'm touched by your story and simply want to let you know you are not alone. There are many of us here in the U.S. that are actively persuing freedom, justice and love from the "Christian" community and I'm convinced that one day those who call themselves "Christian" will one day wake up the the message of Jesus, "Love is the Answer" and stop their foolishness based on fear and ignorance. Anyway . . . I was never ordained but I am a Religions Science Practitioner and have developed a workshop titled,
"God Loves You Because You Are Gay" to heal wounds such as you describe and many of us have experienced.
I'm sure your parents will eventually realize in their hearts that accpeting their son the way God created him is the only answer to their own peace of mind. Until that day my freind Keep the Faith and Know that you are not alone. God Loves you Because You Are Gay.
Peace and Blessings,
Fank in L.A.

Greetings Don and welcome!! :)
Thank you for so openly sharing so much of your story. It is deeply moving. I'm sorry for the pain you went through, and I am happy to hear that you have met a beautiful soulmate!!!! How wonderful to get through so much sorrow only to find joy at the end of the journey! :)
Prague - wow! That must be quite different from southern GA. :D I spent a couple of days in Prague on my honeymoon but unfortunately, I got tummy sick, so I basically spent them looking out the hotel window at the nearby surroundings. :rolleyes: But we did get to tour a bit - let's see what do I remember?
Okay, well: we stayed at a hotel right next to some famous castle I felt too sick to go see:p :rolleyes: , we *did* visit a couple of city squares whose names I can say but won't DARE try to spell, a famous clock. . . . Viserad (how did I do at spelling that?), where we spent hours so my husband could pay homage to the graves of Janacek and Dvorak. . . . and the excellent music going on in Prague! We wandered in to a student recital and were really impressed by the level of music-making even from students. A good place for musicians, Prague.
Ah well, yes - so you see me grasping to recall impressions of Prague. That's the best I have. :p So I will just picture you typing at us from the town square where the famous clock is. :p :lol:
Oh lastly - If your parents have progressed from refusing to speak to you at all, to a point where now they *are* communicating with you, then to that extent the relationship has begun to heal. I hope it will heal much further to a point where they understand there is no reason to feel shame. That makes me sad - you sound like a highly accomplished and articulate person with a strong sense of yourself - they ought to be proud. Perhaps someday they will be.
Just outta curiosity - how did you find Soulforce?
