WELCOME! Here is my not-terribly-eloquent attempt to grow closer to God via... blogging. Unfortunately for you, I'm not sure what that means either. I guess we'll find out!

I'm 30 years old, married to an IT Guy and a stay-at-home-mom to two spectacularly gorgeous children. While we attend Mass on Sunday mornings, I spend the entirety of the Eucharistic Prayer focused on making sure the baby uses her crayons on the bulletin, not the pew

Thank you for writing this. I've found myself thinking about this, about the church's perspective and about the people involved, and I've struggled. I'm going to keep reminding myself that I'm not alone with my divided mind and to keep placing my hope in the Lord.

Steph

Yes and yes.

SIGH.

I hope that you find what's right for you. I stayed in the Church for a long time, hoping to be an instrument of change. It may be that the Church needs people like you to stay and fight the good fight. I just couldn't do it anymore. The Archbishop in Minneapolis came down HARD on people who spoke out. It was honestly horrifying to me.

Sunday Thompson

I agree with you. My cousin was born gay or transgendered. He is only 10 now and he has always liked playing with barbies, princesses, dressing in dresses and high heels, he is an actor, loves rearranging the furniture, and putting on lavish dinner parties for his family. He was BORN this way! God MADE him this way! God LOVES him! Why can't my Church love and accept him?

D and I were also not in agreement with our pastor's stance on this issue. It was really hard to hear him preaching about it EVERY Sunday for months (not the whole sermon, but it always came up) and one week actively soliciting donations for a anti R74 group. I agree with what you say, I understand why he thinks that way and I'm glad he feels strongly, but there are 27 million people in slavery around the world and there are people who are hungry and being abused and lets spend our time speaking out about those types of issues.

Off my soap box. By the way, I forget to read this blog of yours and whenever I do I'm impressed again by your writing and your faith. I'm blessed to know you.
