What Dreams may Come?

Between Places - a free fantasy graphic novel for your reading pleasure.

-

It's like looking through a frosted glass at a scene taking place just outside of my reach. I can never get quite close enough to hear everything that's being said, and yet, I know every word of their rehearsed program.

I feel desperately alone when I watch the dreams trickle through like this. They're as familiar as the jeans I know I'm wearing, and as alien as the thought that reminds me,
But you're not wearing pants. You never wear pants. Why are you painting your face to look like every other girl?

Someday, I'm not going to wake up. The ghosts and spirits of the dreamworld will grab hold of me and haul me under the surface and I'll drown in a world that's just familiar enough to be completely forgotten.

I'll drink the coffee again, stare anxiously at the rain outside of my window, and wish it would wash away my dreaming nights. Someday, I will die between places.


-

I love it when DeviantArt gives us free journal skins for a limited period of time. That means I can put something pretty loaded with links onto my journal and leave it there!

Read my webcomic, Between Places.

And be sure to vote for a brand new vote incentive every day for May!

It's beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen approximately a year since I left DeviantArt. I actually did leave for a while. Then I started popping back in once in a while. This started when I got a Mac, and you see, it actually would LOAD DeviantArt which was my major problem.

Damned if they're not going to change the version in a month and I'll have to do this again.

Anyway, I'm slowly picking away at my comments. Most of them are "thanks for the brushes" and "I DID THIS WITH YOUR STOCK" but I'm trying to reply to you guys, really, even if I said you didn't have to credit and notify me because I HATE HAVING TO DEAL WITH FIFTY BILLION "THANKS HERE'S MY CRAPPY PHOTOMANIP" comments. D:< (Don't let that deter you. You can tell me if you really want. I will eventually, SOMEWHEN, reply to your comment.)

Do not expect incredible activity. But I'm tired of not having an art gallery to post my amazing art that no one will comment on anyway because it's not anime, furry, fanart, or a brush.

Right.

Now I remember why I left.

Anyway, I creatively crashed for most of the last year. Sorry about that. It was worse for me than for you, trust me. People died, my teeth all tried to self-destruct at the same time and I was unable to create anything. I'm considering ditching this account and starting a new one to try start fresh, we'll see.

Gallery l Store l Watch Me l Note Me





Honestly, v7 was okay for the first couple days but the lag and the lack of auto-full view and everything just ticks me right off. I'm not going to do the dramatic I'M LEAVING AND I'LL NEVER COME BAAACK thing but I'm NOT going to bother checking DA regularly anymore. If I paint something particularly interesting or make a brush set I'll drop by and post it. I'll reply to comments, it just might be particularly slow. This isn't the whole LEAVING FOREVER drama. It's just... I'm not going to be here, really. The gallery remains, my resources remain, you can note me if you want me to see something. I'm not checking my watchlist. I'm not checking journals. It lags too much for me to handle it on my connection.

So I'm going to try a new art site. It's less laggy, reminds me of early DA, and way, way smaller. Me over on Storm Artists. I shall be posting art there from hereon, at least until DA becomes less laggy and frustrating (v8 please!)... though as I said, I'll drop by here and post if I make something particularly interesting.

I shall, as always, be around on my webcomic, Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday...

And I'm experimenting with selling things on Artfire and of course, in my webcomic site's store. Check it out, maybe I'll drop by here and post some pictures in the near future.

But honestly. DA's become too big, too choke-y, too cliquey, and I never felt at home here anyway. I think it's time for a change for the smaller. Take no offense if I take a while to reply to your comments. This site's just too... slow now. As I said, this isn't the leaving forever drama. I'll be back if and when the site improves enough that it doesn't take me thirty seconds to load a single image. But in that state... well... I can't browse my watchlist anymore. Just can't. I would love to see and comment on your art still, you will just have to note me or I'll likely never see it.

Or join Storm Artists. It's small, but goodness knoooooows the wicke--I mean, I like small sites.

AAHHH FREE JOURNAL SKIN. I had to try it. Honest. But the same content here, really.

Ten sketches. One more left!

:iconvhalack: (done! calthyechild.deviantart.com/ar…)

:iconbearerofnaraithas: remains.



NOW! Features? Here is the list. THE FEATURES LIST. Sorry, I snagged one of you generic commenters to flesh it out. Expect features soon!

Say, if this journal skin thing is free if we don't edit or post a new journal ever again, all I have to do is make myself a custom skin to advertise my webcomic before the deadline and never ever journal again...! XD

Well, hello there! It's been MORE THAN A YEAR since I posted my last journal. Because I swore I was not going to update until I finished the ten sketches meme or the features meme filled up. Well, sad to say, I have done neither.


Of the ten sketches, I have done eight. Two remain.

:iconvhalack: and :iconbearerofnaraithas: remain. Contact me with what you want and I will draw it in August. Right? Thanks!



NOW! Features? Here is the list. YOU WILL OBSERVE THAT THERE ARE TWO SLOTS LEFT. TWO PEOPLE POST AND LET ME FEATURE YOU. This is open as of July 22nd. I will feature in August. Like the sketches. Meanwhile, you guys get continued publicity in my journal as I leave your icons up.

Lawl, I have a boyfriend now.

Law, I'm doing ScriptFrenzy still.

Lawl. Er. Yeah. I'm in a bad mood today. I hope that fixes itself. I was annoyed, woke up today sick to my stomach (STUPID EGGS, whyyyy, I wasn't allergic to you BEFORE... sob...) and in a cold sweat. And finally ended up dragging myself out of bed by 6... PM... XP. I still feel dizzy and sick.

Woke up last morning with a bad dream. It was very Hollywood epic, eyes flying open, almost sitting up but it was more falling over and staring over the edge of the bed, cold sweat, fully aware of everything, a cut off scream fading into the dream as you become aware that you've just yelled in real life too...

It was very epic.

Really epic.

Won a commission painting thingy from :iconero-47: for getting 5020 pageviews... heh. He does neat art.

______

I got tagged!

RULES
1. Post these rules.

2. Each tagged person must post 8 things about their self on their journal.

3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 8 people and post their icons on the same journal.

4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.

5. No tag-backs

________

1) If you do not enable 'no criticism plz' I am inclined to leave constructive comments. I will criticize your art if you enable the 'please criticize'. If you didn't want it, it's your own fault for not telling me beforehand you didn't want constructive comments. So, the point of this one is this: I am a critic. I leave critique. I want you to be a better artist than me. If I criticize, doesn't mean I hate your art. Far from it. It means I liked it enough to spend time looking at it. :)

2) I hate my art and everything about it. I hate anime and lazy 3D art and photomanipulation and everything. But that's not stopping me from TRYING it. Just because I hate my art and various art forms hasn't stopped me from needing to try it out too. I advocate trying things.

3) I'm Canadian. This doesn't mean I'm patriotic. It just means I hate warm weather.

4) The field and problem in the world I feel strongest about is urban poverty at the moment.

5) I wear band teeshirts. Lots of band teeshirts. I also like hats, and loose cargo pants and striped socks. I basically look like a hip/hop grunge person for my style statement, but I'm not really.

6) I listen to almost every single genre of music, depending on my mood.

7) My computer was built from scratch by Aubin. Its name is Lukie.

8) I have a couple posters on my walls. One Lord of the Rings one, one Star Wars one, one Nanowrimo one, and a bunch of various bad sketches. And two maps of fantasy worlds. And one thing declaring me to have done the "Fastest virtual hippo sprint" in Nanowrimo, in my region. That's right. 1300 words in 15 minutes. XD Bwhaha.


I dunno if I have eight friends. So, uh, if you wanna be tagged, tag yourself.

Jandalf, Dun (Bearerofnaithras?), Extriandreamer, Wrongwayaround, Shishka... yeah, you guys might see this... go ahead if you want.

Note to self: you owe Extriandreamer a picture for the 2,000 mark, BEFORE you hit 3,000. Yeah. Okay. Good girl.

I'll give more people free publicity and features if they just comment. XP I dunno why I'm even bothering, I don't even have ten people who LIKE me. XD



See last journal for ALMOST EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLITY YOU CAN SUBMIT TO.

And now, the slightly more reasonable submission with rules.

Many of these have subsubcatagories. In fact, I wrote down the subsubcatagories for some of them. Of course, the first goal should be to put one submission into each A-Q. The second goal should be to try get something into each subcatagory. To have done that, you can consider yourself amazing. But for some catagories, for example, literature, there's only a "poetry" and "prose" subcatagory. Since you should really try put something into each genre and try get one of each type of poem--but not one of each type of poem for each genre, that'd be insane, but you can if you want--I added the additional catagories there. Likewise, for catagories such as 'painting and airbrushing' or 'drawing' you should try fill in each genre... surreal, abstract, fantasy, sci-fi, people and portraits... I just simply never typed out every single catagory there. Yet. In the catagories where the subcatagory just had 'digital' 'traditional' I wrote out some sub-sub catagories, of course.

List sooo long. Of course, not everything we'll be able to do. But we can certainly try. Everyone has Wordpad or some other varient on their computer, so you have no excuse to not do the literature catagories. Everyone can get paper. And you can type right into DeviantArt if you want to!

RESOURCES!

Painting and airbrushing? Drawing?

-The GIMP, a free Photoshop-like program.
-OpenCanvas, a fully functional 30 day trial. (Also, version 1 is free)
-Artrage 2. Also free, but with some limited functionality.
-MS Paint. (Oekaki and pixel art)
-And of course, paper...

-Photography? Buy a disposable camera.

-Fractals? Apophysis is free.

3D art?
-Dazzle 3D. Or Dazed or something like that. Daz3d? Something like that.
-Also, Blender is a free 3D program.

I should make a stamp and a news post and attempt to encourage 'deviant'arting. Deviating from your current art style is always good.

Get something in every catagory, from a-q, and I'll feature you (and all 17 catagory-seperate pictures you've done). =D
  • Listening to: Nickleback - Someday
  • Reading: Death Note manga. &lt;3
  • Playing: Ummm... Lego Star Wars II.
  • Eating: Campbell's Chunky Beef Soup
  • Drinking: WATER!!!

Note to self: you owe Extriandreamer a picture for the 2,000 mark, BEFORE you hit 3,000. Yeah. Okay. Good girl.

I'll give more people free publicity and features if they just comment. XP I dunno why I'm even bothering, I don't even have ten people who LIKE me. XD

No, more like. Currently. LET'S SEE HOW INSANE WE CAN BE.

What? Why would she be any odder? Well, she's starting a challenge.

AS MANY CATAGORIES AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. Technically, that's all, but no way am I learning to code and skin applications I've never heard of.

And that is the list of ALMOST EVERY SINGLE CATAGORY YOU CAN SUBMIT TO ON DEVIANTART. And my goal is to submit to as many as humanly possible. For me, that means skipping the 3D art and Flash and coding and stuff.

Heh.

Yeah. Well, I figure if someone gets something in every single catagory at the beginning, that's good. If you can get something in EVERY SINGLE SUBCATAGORY. That's even better. Now, I admit I skipped a lot of the 'traditional/digital' art catagories and stuff, but eh. You get the jist.

COME ON ONE MORE PERSON COMMENT.

On the plus side, these four people are getting free publicity in my journal! Here, let's add on one more for the heck of it.

:iconshishka0441:, who featured me for the heck of it. YAY.

Yay!

Youth Quake, gotta be conscious in the morning now! Gone for the weekend. Mmhmm. Yeah, that's about it.

Oh, and I have a boyfriend. Long distance. VERY long distance. (explodes) We'll seeee how that goes.

I just want one more so it looks KINDA impressive, even if I can't do thumbnails. So come on, someone... XP

Moving on.

Anyone who knows me, more than just as a quick commenter, knows I'm not a huge fan of anime art. Yeah, I have some friends who do it - no offence to you. I just don't like the look much. It was cool, but it's overdone now...

Which is why, no surprise, I really haven't read much manga. Watching anime gives me a headache, I've watched one episode of Bleach, a few of Ghost in the Shell (pretty cool, there), Pokemon, Yuh-Gi-Oh, Inuasha, you know. What my little brother watches once in a while. I've read random manga just for the heck of it, usually picking up in the middle of a series because our library never had much...

And, of course, played Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts.

Kingdom Hearts.

And Death Note.

The two fandomed-to-death fandoms.

And Nurato, but I haven't watched. =P

Kingdom Hearts earned its following. It's a creative video game, kids can play it, and older players can appreciate the complexity of the storyline. It has familiar Disney characters for those of us who liked Disney... familiar FF characters for FF players.

Death Note... well, I faved a few parody comics from long before I started reading it. Which was earlier last night. I'm on manga 41 now. Unfortunately, thanks to those comics, I also know spoilers, but that hasn't shaken me, even though I will happily admit to being a fan of L and Raito's storyline and just the interaction... it had me hooked from the start.

The style is the one style of manga I actually LIKE. The one book I own from some other series looks like that too. I like the style. But moreso, I adore the storyline. It's cohesive, obsessively facinating, and really it just doesn't feel like any manga I've ever read before.

I'll admit it publically.

Death Note earned its following.

I thought it'd be some stupid mainstream anime. Oooooooh. FANSERVICE BLAH. Seriously. I went into it expecting...

Not what I got, anyway.

What I got was a psycological thrilling story of someone quickly twisted almost to evil, but not quite - a battle between two people, mentally rather than physical. Quirky characters, a police drama of a sort, and yet not. I think... it's a theme I come back to. I might not keep reading when more characters are introduced. The girl shook me up a bit, I didn't like that, though I admit if it was just one vs one it wouldn't have held up.

Death Note, at least in these earlier stages has a theme I adore. Control. Manipulation. Contrast. It's very gray, where's the good and evil? The story is technically about the villain... we know a lot the characters don't. It's just... it's very well done. Not really mainstream at all.

It deserved a following.

And that's from a critical reader.

ANYWAY, NOW THAT YOU'RE DONE READING THIS PLEASE COMMENT SO I CAN FEATURE YOU KTHX.

So there.


:iconpixieface:, who, incidentially, is a far better artist than me and never should've had to look through my GALLERY OF TERROR featured me! (including my exerpt, which probably says something along the lines of 'why, yes, your writing is better than your art'. And I should probably take that seriously and stop wasting time as an artist and go publish my novel. Or at least finish it. At least I know where commas go, so that's one up on some people... heehee... yayyyyyyyy... yes, and there's some really sweet art there, so go check it out!)

Anyway, the chain is simple. I'm going to be stuck on it for a darn while, though, and I can't do thumbnails due to not being a subscriber...

TEN PEOPLE GET FEATURED. YAY. So, like, yeah. I don't have ten people who watch me anyway, but first ten people to comment here get me to go through their gallery and get three pictures featured. And then you have to do the same for someone else. Comment here. I feature.

J QUICK COMMENT AS CONFUSTICATED LAWLS. Yeah, we should update that.

Anyway. Get to posting! I can, what, expect to maybe feature extriandreamer, plague-rat-as-his-new-account-what-was-it-can't-remember, Dun, maybe Jandalf-if-I-direct-her-to-this-because-she-doesn't-check-me-much-especially-not-the-journals, maybe Jypees and Skye... yeah, that's about it for people who are friends... lol. Look. I don't usually get one comment per picture. If you're a random visitor, PLEASE COMMENT AND LET ME FEATURE YOU I DON'T EVEN HAVE TEN FRIENDS!

^_^

I'll fill this in once I have about five galleries to look through, I guess, but here, a list!

1) ROPED IN JANDALF LAWL.
2) DUNCARIEL. Well. bearerofnaraithas. Dang. Your screenname is every bit as inexplicable as mine. And difficult to spell. Oh, how I wish I could change mine to Metruis or something. -_-' Oh well.
3) extriandreamer! Who featured me once before. NOW IS GONNA GET FEATURED BACK!
4) Nandaio! SIX MORE TO GO.

Clickie.

PLEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE?

metruis.myminicity.com

Seriously. This thing is way too obsessive. o_o

Yeah.

If anyone was interested, I totally called it. I got a 3 gig iPod Nano for Christmas. Heh. And PotC 3. And Narnia for PSP and a new ink pen and candy and stuff. I can't remember anymore, anyway.

Dang, my job's over with now. x_x Now I have to get a real job. DANG!

Yeah.

Mmm, nothing to see here, move along...

Heehee... mood is the wrong sort of obsessed... oh well. XD

I really do.

I don't care if I get a CD player (okay, well, I do because I have two already) or a DS or a set of dishes or an iPod or chocolates or a Barbie or any stupid little thing for Christmas.

I couldn't really feel the spirit this year, you know. It was like... meh.

I realized eventually--that was the problem. We were hung up with OMG MUST GET GIFTS FAST.

Everyone does. It's on the radios. COME HERE FOR YOUR PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFTS! WE SELL TAPE HALF PRICE. It's on the TVs. LOOK, A NEW BABY DOLL THAT PEES AND POOPS.

It's on computers.

Just look at all the google ads.

It's in emails.

HURRY, QUICK FOR YOUR 75% OFF WATCHES.

SPAM.

It's on billboards.

It's in the fridge. Just look. There's that batch of cookie dough thawing out. The oranges. The stuffed full of egg nog and milk and eggs and garlic sausage and turkey and everything just waiting for the 25rd. The nuts on the cupboard--and in the living room, at the computer, everywhere.

It's in the snow, it's in the air, it's in the EVERYTHING. You can't escape commercialism. There's a perfect Christmas portrayed in movies, online, in stories.

It's all about the getting. Oh, sure, admit it--you're giving out gifts too, but it's about the getting. You get a nice feeling, seeing someone tear apart your gift and eating your chocolates and getting fat.

That's what Christmas shouldn't be about.

It should be about unconditional giving. Time, money, thoughts... helping with the dishes, not screaming at people, being calm and simply enjoying the season...

It's about the greatest gift of all.

And that gift, it may be different from person to person, but it doesn't come in a cardboard box from Wal-Mart or Winners or Future Shop, wrapped in plastic and pretty colors.

I am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag every day.

I am the kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the one working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the woman who died when the EMTs stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn't have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am a warrior for my country serving proud, but can't be my true self because gays aren't allowed in the military.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

I am the person ashamed to tell my own friends I'm a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them.

I am the who isn't sure what she is. I am the one who is rejected by her "best friends" because of a less-than-conventional crush.

I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to "teach me a lesson."


This is the boy: Matthew Shepard. On October 7, 1998 Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson lead him to a remote area east of Laramie where they demonstrated unimaginable acts of cruelty. Matthew was tied to a split-rail fence where he was beaten and left to die in the cold of the night. Almost 18 hours later he was found by a cyclist who initially mistook him for a scarecrow. Matthew died on October 12 at 12:53 am at a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. He was killed because he was gay.

If you believe that homophobia is wrong, feel free to repost this.



That said. Now it's me (calthyechild), not the repost thingy...

Who am I?

I am the straight Christian who stands in the middle of her church, sick of the ignorance and refusal to obey the greatest command we were ever given: to love. I am the straight girl who will publicly admit that I love another woman in an entirely straight way and am not permitted to show this outside of the house for fear of being called gay and shunned for showing a degree of affection normally only seen between two lovers. I am the girl who's looked up sex change, not because I'm transsexual, but because I simply wanted to see what they had to go through.

I am the one always caught between two points of view. I am the one who has elected to say this. Yep, my Bible says homosexuality is wrong. It also says this.


James 2: 8-10
8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well;
9 but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.
10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.


Some would call me a homophobe.

Some would call me gay.

Some would call me a hypocrite.

Some would say 'what the hell'... and walk away.


My Bible says homosexuality is wrong. It also says lying is wrong, it also says murder is wrong, it says disobeying your parents is wrong--here, we'll use that. EVERY ONE of us has done THAT, admit it.

My Bible says this.


Romans 3:23.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.


Jee. My Bible says a lot about sin, actually. But in short, it basically says we're all bad people, we all sin, and ALL SIN IS EQUAL. It says to love your neighbor. I'm too lazy to get an exact reference.

My Bible says something along the lines of "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself". In John somewhere, I think.

It also says all this.

1 Corinthians 13:

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.


Dear so-called "religious" homophobes.

I am religious. I have read the entire Bible. I am a devoted Christian, I follow the Bible as my outline for life. I could spend hours doing this. But I won't.

You always throw that one verse in Leviticus at them.

Do you know what the Books of the Law prove? When you yell at them that gays are bad and THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS do you ever consider this?

You couldn't do it by yourself either. You call yourself religious but you forgot what our religion is founded on. One thing. One little thing.

WE COULDN'T DO IT ON OUR OWN.

That's why it exists, you know. That's why it happened. Because if YOU could've kept the entire Law. And it's right there, in those first five books of the Bible. You know it is because you throw them at those poor gay people... who aren't any different from you. Yes, you hate me for saying that. You're doing your little cross signs and running. I'm just telling you the truth, though.

ALL HAVE SINNED.

NO ONE CAN DO IT ON THEIR OWN.

Did you know that in those same books of the Bible, it also says that children who disobeyed their parents should be stoned?

You couldn't do it yourself. You sin too. You BLOODY HYPOCRITES. That's right. That Jesus you flaunt, the same Jesus I flaunt--you keep forgetting that he was the one who, while he was on Earth, befriended prostitutes and lepers and tax collectors and fishermen. He called the religious leaders hypocrites for their actions here and there. In fact, it looks to me like he spent a lot of time correcting them for getting so entangled in legalistics that they forgot that the truth of the matter was this: they couldn't do it themselves.

They were trying to.

Pick up your bloody Bibles. That's right, the one covered in dust, except for where you open it at church--or do you even do that? Do you even look at it? Do you just listen to what the dude up front has to say and sing the pretty songs? Pick them up! READ THEM, already. Read more than just the books of the Law. Those prove that you couldn't do it any more than a homosexual can, and maybe you just don't want to admit it to yourself, but you are EVERY BIT AS WRONG AS THEY ARE.

It says it somewhere in Matthew. Stop looking at the speck in your brother's eye when you've got a plank in your own.

Well, stop looking for other planks and deal with your own.

Then.

Apologize to God. Apologize to the people you've hurt. Pray you didn't drive them away forever. Do you like the thought that maybe, just maybe, you've drove someone to commit suicide?

Then once you've acknowledged that you've sinned too, get out there and do something. Show love. LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS GOD LOVED YOU. Hey, I think that's in there too! It doesn't say "Love everyone (except the homosexuals and transsexuals and the prostitute and that girl over there who slept with every guy in 9th grade last year... and heck, let's include that guy because he's got all those tattoos and he's emo)"

This is my God. My God loved everyone so much he sent his son to die. My God has a verse in his book that says 'But the greatest love of all is he that would lay his life down for his friend'. Or something of that accord. I'm not claiming to accurate quotes except where I've listed references. =P

Yeah. I believe homosexuality is a sin. I believe it's wrong.

I also believe that every single day I spent, I sin. I yell at my mother and my siblings and mope about doing chores. I lie here and there. I don't always do what God wants me to do. I believe that I could not make it on my own. To heaven, that is.

I believe that the Bible says sin is sin. There's no midpoint. I remember staring at my Sunday School teachers and stuff when we looked at the James verse when I was a pretty little kid and going 'So you mean when I lie that's the same as killing someone?' and how they'd go 'No, but since you'd have to be perfect to get to heaven it's the same effect'.'

Please stop the hating. Stop the hypocrisy. You wear your WWJD badges and flaunt 'What would Jesus do?'.

This is what Jesus would do.

He would love.

It says so right in MY Bible, anyway. It doesn't say this, but it's sure implied.

Love the sinner, not the sin.

I am straight. But I am not a homophobe. It's not that I believe in homosexuality, I just believe homophobia is wrong. I believe the mistreatment of any human, any color, creed, orientation, race—is wrong. I don't believe a pastor should be forced to wed two people of the same gender but I don't believe that homosexuals should have no rights. I don't believe we should stand there with signs saying GAYS ARE BAD. But I don't believe gays need to be so in your face and flaunty either. I dislike most yaoi/yuri simply because I find it unappealing. I also find most anime unappealing. So what are you complaining about? It's a personal preference, nothing against the people. I would never cease to take anyone's perspective seriously. Admittedly, I rant and complain some--but we all have our faults. At least I admit I have them.

I am not a hypocrite because my attitude comes straight from the Bible. I love you. It's sometimes hard to remember to love you too. Even though you make me feel like someone's repetitively smacking me over the back of the head, listening to you, I love you too.

My God is love. What's yours?

Love,
-T


Here, have a comic.
