Wassssup! You know I love you man. I've never said otherwise. Your honesty towards me strengthens my appreciation of you. Thank you.<quoted text>
may i chime in Al? if not, please don't read any further:)
you've been gracious to me even when i haven't deserved it so i'm saying this in love and not to hurt you.
brotha ya gots to take a stand! a hand-wringing, wishy-washy, ya-can't-offend-people type attitude is the very same attitiude that the luthern brotherhood had in germany circa 30-40's and they allowed the devil to trample right in and take over the whole damn country!
choose which side of the homosexual and evolutionary war you're gonna fight for and then fight all the way, but don't think you can be accepted in both camps:)
If I appear wishy washy, then so be it. It is what it is. I genuinely love people. All people. I genuinely love God. But somewhere in the middle is the struggle. I am being asked to choose sides. Keep one and discard the other. I'm being asked to place value on half my brothers and sisters and damn the others. I firmly believe that -we must learn to live together as brothers or perish as fools. There is a right way to live together rather than dwell on adversity.
Now going back to my "Wishy washy ways lol" I believe that God has endowed each and every one of us with very special and unique gifts to serve others. One breaks the hard ground and plants a seed. Another waters. Another cultivates and eliminates weeds and so on. We all do what we were made to do. You simply will need to see where your gift is and use it to your full potential.
I am not offended by your honesty in the least. It's appreciated and welcomed.:)
