1. Okay, so it’s Wednesday night rather than Wednesday morning, but here’s a post anyway.
2. So, I read a lot of left-leaning websites, and so all the gay marriage in San Francisco news I read is obviously portrayed in a positive light. And I can tell all these men and women getting married are happy, getting to finally be together like “normal” people, but…at the same time, I know that in eternity they are going to suffer the consequences. I believe homosexuality isn’t so much the disease as the symptom; Paul lists it as the last thing in a whole string of hearts being hardened, the creature wanting the creature rather than the Creator. One of the challenges we have as the church: Loving gay and lesbian and transgendered people both with conviction and compassion, especially when they also confess Christ. Some sins aren’t easily thrown off, even when you know Jesus. Bring the controversy!
3. Okay, so, this is possibly the best acceptance speech for anything, ever:
4. Yes, I’ve been on this insane poetry kick lately, and I am perfectly okay with that (by the way, buy my stuff, see the post below, ahem *cough*). I am falling in love with the English language again. And things, I find, take on a different quality whenever they’re read out loud. This is how the ancients read; I wonder how our literature and how our reading experience as a whole would be different if we did the same. Not that I’m going to give up reading silently any time soon, mind you, but it’s a fun exercise.
5. I have to say it: I’m really glad it’s happening, but why is VH1 doing I Love the New Millennium when the decade’s not even over yet? Just saying.
