Another rainy day

As a gay man, I understand what discrimination is about. As a white man who has lived in numerous African countries, I know what discrimination is about. As an alcoholic, I understand what discrimination is about.
What I DO NOT comprehend is why gay people are so discriminatory against other gays, just because of political or religous beliefs.
This seems to be the ultimate hypocrisy.


todAAy i AAm grAAteful and thAAnkful

for another weekend of non-isolating (this is big stuff for me)

that I stepped out of my comfort zone long enough to attend a sober party at a human's home

that I try to be non-discriminatory towards living creatures - I have decided to leave that to my HP, thus relieving me of another burden

that I am slowly learning to keep my mouth shut when it doesn't need to open

that I will be taking a trip soon to spend a week with Hayden to a place neither of us have ever been, but for security reasons, I will not disclose when

that we're due for some neat weather later today (thunderstorms, windy)

Hi Dave....I thought that political and religous beliefs was the basis for ALL discrimination...gay or not. BUT..if everyone on the planet worked the 12 steps....wouldn't life be AWESOME ?????
I think your "mission" of keeping your own side of the street clean when it comes to discrimination..is the best form of living the program. We never know when we are "teaching" someone a better way. Please teach me how to stop isolating...you seem to be doing VERY well at it these days.

All I can do some days is treat other people the way I want to be treated, with love, compassion, understanding and acceptance of WHO they are. Loved the post, we can all make a difference today!

I admire that you always post something about "still learning"....

Perhaps security reasons being if you told people when you were leaving, they'd know your house is empty?

Interesting post Dave. Discrimination sucks. I went to the University of Alabama, soooo so black and white there.
