Ok. So there is the big news about the Pope's opinion on gay priests.
I have a question about priests. Aren't they supposed to be celibate?
So wouldn't that make them neither gay or straight? I'm just curious. So if you are a priest or a nun, you remain celibate and are therefore "married to the church" so you shouldn't have ANY sexual urges of any kind.
I'm just asking...anyone have an answer? If you respond and say that it's impossible for humans to have NO urges, I disagree. There are many people out there who have no interest in it. And if you think that it's impossible to ask that of someone, then I agree maybe the Roman Catholic church should change it's rules about priest and marriage.
I think that they should encourage family and faith. Like some of those other religions out there.
They say you shouldn't talk about politics and religion in polite company. But I think that makes things more interesting. And check it out, I'm updating my blog for those who wanted an update. At least it gave me a topic to discuss. :)
I do apologize for not updating.
I blame the following three things:
1. New boyfriend. I tell him all the interesting things in my head. And he talks back. Which is way more interesting than a blog.
2. I'm tring to write a book. I was supposed to have 50,000 words by the end of the month. I'm not even close.
3. I'm trying to get through my pile of reading. I'm actually reading 2-3 books at a time on an effort to get through all of it. :)
Ok...I'll write some more later.
Ok, it's now later. Not that you can tell by my post.
So remember my post about Oprah for President?
Apparently there is a fan club out there that would like her to win the Nobel Peace Prize. oprah4peaceprize.org
Crazy huh? Go sign the petition. :)
Remember in my same post I think I might have told of my support for Hillary Clinton if she were to run for president as well. Well, someone I know who I thought was a fan of the Clinton's is against Hillary for President because she "lies and hides her lifestyle". Apparently this person thinks that Hillary is a lesbian, and shouldn't be condemned because she is a lesbian, but should be condemned because she is married and "hides" her true life. I disagree. Who cares if she is or if she isn't? We have way more problems in this world to solve.
Like over 2000 American soldiers dead in Iraq. And homeless and hungry people on our VERY OWN SMALL TOWN STREETS. And how about all of the kids with no parents?
Besides, it's none of my business or your business what someone does when the bedroom door is shut. (which in my opinion is where all of that "gay" and "lesbian" stuff actually happens right?)
I mean, so we are okay with someone in office who is straight, but "hides" his true life by not admitting he has to have his toes licked or he isn't attracted to his wife. Who cares? I don't. Anyway, I had to ask this person "who said Hilary is a lesbian?" and the person replied that they had insider information. I told this person that if they had insider information, then someone else must have it as well, which would mean it would have been leaked all over to the National Enquirer by now....
Besides that I have one other point. I don't blame anyone for keeping any of their private sexual attractions a secret (yes people, it should be private, I don't know why if you are gay or lesbian your life is all of a sudden someone else's business) It's no one's business.
And why would I not blame someone for keeping it a secret if they were gay or a lesbian? Because the rest of us make it so hard for them to live a normal, not persecuted, no feelings hurt, normal life. If I were a lesbian, I might be too afraid to discuss it or be open. I might be in the closet. Married to a man. Having his children, and all way too afraid to be me.
Simply because we can't accept people for who they are.
Sometimes this world stinks. But then I stop and remember, it's only the people that stink. :)
So...enjoying my blog updates yet? haha...I know I have a few lurkers who are happy I finally updated.
But who are you? Do I know all of you?
I should post a picture.... I'm going to post pictures of internet lurkers.
For now you can have this one his name is Mickey. I'm pretty sure he isn't an internet lurker. But he is definitely the best dog ever. He unfortunately passed away a while back.
