Gay Channel Pushes Me Over the Edge
March 31, 2004

It was only a matter of time. Conversation has resurfaced regarding Viacom's plans to establish a Gay and Lesbian Channel. With ABC and Bravo, I thought we already had a gay channel? Enough is enough. Did you know there's a "Gay Financial Network" (GFN)? What in Sam Hill does being gay have to do with finances? And people say there's no such thing as a "gay agenda". EDITED 04/01: Let me clarify. Being gay has a LOT to do with finances. Like say for example, transferring generational wealth. John Maynard Keynes was a famous British economist. He also happened to be gay (even thought he was married). The underlying theory of his economics lacked the aspect of generational wealth. Why? Gay men don't procreate so their view on economics is different. We're in la-la land if we don't think the homosexual agenda affects the economy.

I am being challeged as of late with regards to my emotion around those who haven chosen this alternative lifestyle. Recently, I've started a new business and one of the guys I am working with is gay. I went to both high school and college with many a gay and lesbian folk and I live in a city that aspires to be the next San Francisco so despising the sin and loving the person has been my mantra in life. However, working so closely with someone in a venture that is very important to me has brought some challenges. Aside from his overwhelming use of the word, "yummy" which irks the heck out of me, I think I can deal. I am however, certainly being reminded of a lot of my own issues and judgements and this is a growing experience for me. God is so tremendous in His love for everyone; more tremendous than I could ever be.

Hmmm... "chosen this alternative lifestyle". There's a myth I'd sure like to dispel- that everyone chooses to be gay. Now don't get me wrong, there is definitely a choice made. The choice is whether to come out, or continue to put on the face and charade that everyone wants and expects. Like McGreevey. What he did was absolutely disgusting, promoting his vastly unqualified "boyfriend" to such an important post. But he serves as an example for what can happen when people make the choice to stay in the closet for as long as possible, and choose to try and fit what everyone else wants of him. And look how much damage that did.

Aw man, you missed your chance!
