Homophobia

Standard

Throughout history loving a same sex partner has exsisted.  In some cases it been due to isolation as occurs in prisons.   The facts are humans need contact and isolation has led many to feel attracted to others that have shared similar likes, opinions anything that lessens isolation.  The sex drive that lays testament to humanity’s ability to endure is strong.  We are divinely endowed with a sex drive that will easily cast aside common sense.  Even when isolation is not enforced as with the agricultural societies of past.  How many tales of beastiality colored our past ancestors.

The fact is humans are made and designed to procreate.  The religious attacks on sex are nothing more than control for the dominance of a tribe.  If sex was freely allow then the units were scattered.   A family unit was easier to control through prosperity.  A father was added to a tribe and his lineage would follow. The mother created but each time took 9 months and usually died so their value was diminished.  Instead one father could yeild a brood of hundreds in 9 months by using hundreds of mothers.  This was why having many wives was accepted. Capture the father you captured many mothers and the entire future. 

So enough said humans have a divine drive to have sex and sex will not be stopped with elimination of opposite human producing partners.

Here then lies our conundrum.

Why are people gay….

Is there a reason?

Must there be a reason?

Ok lets think about what this meant through the ages….

Some races like the greeks had events that were only for men.  The original Olympics were a man only event and all contestants and most attending were nude.  This must have surely raise the hairs on the backs, if not other things of most Greco-roman wrestling spectaors of their day.  But why you ask.?  Well woman at the time were seen as easy things own but a man that was different that meant you owned what could not be owned. 

I must confess I am not gay, have never been attracted and even when I have thought of why I am not gay in the solace of my heart.   I can easily know same sex person is attractive, but what I most strongly crave resides elsewhere.

I have also had many gay friends, some have disappointed me as they have cast me aside for not being gay.  Not all gays are good but then neither are heteros.  While others I have as some of my closet friends that I truly love and cherish.  Others are just same sex people i love and the sex plays no part but I love them.

Ok enough on why I think I feel I am not a Homophobic person.  Here is where many of you will hate me.

I feel being gay is not normal and I define normal as within the bounds of nature and science.  

At heart I am a scientist and I have developed my own thoery for why we have such a predominant gay influence.

By the way one of my best gay friends once said if I did not know you,  I would take this the wrong way. 

I really ask you don’t take this anyway but at its merit its science that is where I lie. Also know that being gay is not “bad’. It’s just is being alive, and liking what you like. You only have one life please enjoy it. NO ONE IS GIVING ANY OF US ANOTHER

Let’s start with a simple test.  Nature is a bitch as was said in WWZ with Brad Pitt. 

In the past many men and women were forced to conceal their gay tendancies as this could mean alienation or worse.  So how did they hide.

They hid in plane site….

They married,  they had children and they suffered.

Recently we have started a movement to allow the gay to be open.  I applaud this.

Don’t get excited, here comes the, I hate you!!!

I believe that we have been promoting a anti nature experiment for thousands of years. 

For the first time gay don’t have to hide to have sex

For the first time the gay gene is not spread to hide being gay

For the first time gay have no fear and can live normal lives.

Hey??  wait a minute buddy what are you saying, you ask….?

Yes I feel that by allowing people to be openly gay they will minimize the inclination towards being gay.  Will it be eliminated, no…

Place one hundred gay people on an island wait one hundred years and what’s left?

Gay exist in animals but as a by product of isolation not a social concentration.   By isolating the gay community we have allowed a not normal gene to permeate our society. . 

Please not normal does not mean evil, but instead not scientifically sustainable.

Here is the cold hard fact.

Take all the gay people and separate them into male and female camps.  Then transfer those camps to separate islands.  Wait one hundred years.

Go back….

Nature has done its job.

We have created our own Frankenstein.   I know this sounds bad but its not.  No one alive is bad or good by design they are good or bad by their legacy. 

Do you want to be remembered by what or who you are.  It never changes just because you are or are nor gay.  You are you and thats what you leave.  If you seek a label then maybe thats part of why its not normal.

I want all my gay friends to know I love them like everyone else.  You are not special for being gay, you have always been special for being you.

The lone passenger

Standard

So you love….

So you hate…

So you fear…

So they love you…

So they hate you…

So they fear you..

These are the states of our human nature with a grey spectrums in between

Do you truly know what you love and who loves you. 

Is the veneer in front of you that you portray met by another veneer?

Are the facts of your darkest dirtiest secrets relieved?   Do you tell of the way you felt about thier loss?  Is there a way to describe the fear you felt at the hands of a bully?  What was your response to the scene in that movie that disturbed your friends?   Why don’t your friends talk about how when you took the property of others in such a way they did not know.  You had the thing you wanted and they didn’t know??  What about the thoughts of sex that raged in you when you saw them.  Were you bad or was acting it out bad??  The test was not that important but its result stood in your way???

You knew the kitten was in pain but the control was something you never felt.  You didn’t want to hurt it but now that it died are you bad……

The lie was bad but the truth was worse…

These are but examples of what the lone passenger faces.   You are a sibling, parent, spouse, or friend.  But most of all you are truly alone…

You are born and it seems that life has been a gift designed for you.  After sometime of interaction and consequences you find that somethings are not for you, but the reflections of anothers stae they are about your circumstances and sometimes about their consequences.  

When you go outside of your mind and touch the world you learn it touches back and it can hurt.  The pain comes from rejections, isolation, abandonment,  care, love and expectations.

You respond by shying from the negative response and gravitating towards your experiences as from impulsive instinct.  These act begin to compromise your self image. they begin the building of an image but not your image. They are crafted by you internally but in their image.  In some ways this is a blessing for we are an animal born to rule and rule with extreme prejudice. Our fear of otgers opinion contorls our cruelty. Our fear of thier cruelty controls our own.

We seem more driven by fear than anything else. I have often times reflected on my religoius up bringing and doubted its virtures, for did I love God or fear the wrath of not loving God.  was I taught why I should love God or rather taught that the onky way to escaoe Satan was through God. Did tgis make God the center on my religion or the alternative of my fears.

We are born alone and we are destined to depart alone.  We can reach out but in our hearts we know we sit as a lone passenger facing our final hour. 

We spend much of our time in the reflection of our actions through the looking glass of those that sit as spectators.    We in turn are the spectators to others.  So be careful of your judgenents for they may set the precedent of your fate.

We fear the reflection we see while pushing reflections in an effort to enhance our own self worth. 

We see the unfortunate and feel better of our lot.

We find sorrow in the less fortunate and feel merit in our selfishness.

We see the fortunate and assume malpractice.

We see true beauty and proface it as vanity

Our misguided fear builds an image that prevents us from sharing ourselves and therefore only provide others the image of of an actor on the stage of life.  In the end we may have not allowed anyone to really know us and therefore step off the train of life as mysterious lone passengers never to be known.  share true self and in the end at least they can say they knew you.

Damascus Gate Rising

Standard

The Damascus Gate is the name given to the main gate at the ancient city of Jerusalem.   The gate was given its name because it sits on a road that connected the two cities of Damascus and Jerusalem the Roman era.

Today we find ourselves at the crossroads between the conflict of civil war in Syria, the rise of Russian emperialism, Iran’s messianic leadership, American capitalist resource needs and the overwhelming concern of impending war in Israel.

Isreal’s fear is well founded, it stands in the midst of varying aggressors and the smell of war permeates the homes throughout Jerusalem.  They have no alternative but to execute preventative measures and prepare for the worst.  They actually do have their backs against the sea.

The Russians seek to restore a sense national pride and themselves on the world stage lost after decades of military and enonmic failures, a large muslem population riddled with  radical groups whose influence continues to grow and demand support for Syria provide the catalyst for Putin’s sabre rattling.  We need to remember that during cold war we sat terrified of what was just a paper tiger and this continues to be the case.  Putin is more interested in the vanity of perceived leadership than its execution. He reigns over a once was super power with a megalomania enviable of Caligula.

The ground swelling Iranian influence fills the vaccum left in the wake of America’s departure from Iraq and beats on the doors of Afghanistan like crashing waves and threatening the entire region like a rising ocean tsunami.  Iran see the retreat from the American devil now encroaching Syria as underminding the inroads they’ve achieved as the new military and spiritual leader of radicalism in the region.  Plus when has there been a greater moment to strike a preoccupied Isreal. With a Syrian civil war raging, radicalism threatening from groups in Lebanon, their long standing ally Egypt focused on internal tormoil coupled with an American administration with a solid track record of abandoning stable western friendly governments and a lack of resolve in dealing with conflict. Iran is a nation with a rotten core whcih became evident in the recent internal riots.  The Iranian people are Perisians and have never embraced the new Iran.  They are the same progressive people that had street lights in the middle ages and invent the University.  The Shah’s ousting marked a shift from Americanism. The new regime was born of well to do middle classed students whose idyllic motives were twisted from fighting political oppression to the current governing devine oppression. We saw a glimpse of the future recently unfolding on the street of Tehran this recent fundamentalism will too pass. Their leaders know that divine war is not something the people will have a stomach for.  This is why you find their leaders hidding like children huddled behind the anonymity of terriorism

In fortunate contrast the United States of America, my home, sits thousands of miles away and the war is just a topic of the nightly news with the most tangible worry for the average american is how all this will effect the price of gas.  

Now that’s the average American.  That does not account for those mothers that ask why their kids died in Iraq or Afghanistan.   Why the 23 year old in the living room needs to have his urine and feces bag changed every few hours.  It does not account for the young widow walking her 4 year old to daycare as she wonders how she can get themselves out of the shelter the church has given her. 

I am not one to want more of this kind pain laid at our feet America. I wish we could just let them take care of their own problems in the middleast but its a matter of time before a thermal nuclear device is detonated by someone with a suitcase over one of our great cities.  Our great cities include Rome, New York,  London, Chicago,  Paris,  Miami, Munich,  Los Angeles, Buenos Aires,  Dublin,  Tokyo,  Sydney, Bangalore, Dallas, Warsaw, Bangkok, Washington DC and any number of middleast capitals. 

We are one people, one race the human race and as of now no other nation on earth has ever defended man as we have in America.  I for one rather America be remembered for its courage, its greatness and its resolute faith in a better tomorrow.  the prime minister of England Tony Blair was once asked what he thought of America. His alleged response went something like this, “Other than Jesus Christ himself only the American GI has laid down his life for his follow man ” Tony Blair went on to explain that during the Nazi blitzkrieg he remembered how America stood by England and therefore he now stood by us. If anyone should be granted an honorable US Citizenship I vote for Tony Blair.

We are almost there, that shining city on the hill called America is transforming the world.  We continue to crush those dictatorships hidding under the cloak of Marx’s communism.  We have pushed our ideals to all corners of the earth.  To the naysayers, name one Americanized nation that controls the exit of its people.  In the non-americanized nations there’s a prevalence for thier citizen to flee as if running from a burning fire of oppression to the flame of feeedom. No one leaves America they only come, this speaks for itself. 

Now we find ourselves at yet another crossroad between light and darkness.  We must be careful for we must fight from a position of strength and lately we have been drained.  We can not go alone in any decision but instead America should lead.  Our leaders need to carry the weight of truth and righteousness to the international stage.  So now more ever our country needs to stand ad a candle in the dark lighting the way for the human race to achieve another step towards the golden shinning city on the hill and that road today starts today at the Damascus Gate!
