We have been exiled from the church (although many are starting to change) and now he is feeling what we have been feeling for years. I just wish he could relate.
The barrier to him understanding that is that he sees himself as very different from 'the gay community.'
Never linger too long with the ignorant,
throw stones at their talk.
Walk only with the lovers,
the mirror of the soul gets rusty when
dipped in muddy water.
