This is a heady and impetuous blog. Not light hearted or humorous. "Serious" does not adequately describe my tone. It references things of a moral nature, and I'll likely reference immoral situations in some manner. This blog is not a personal attack on anyone, but a condemnation of a way of life.

Not because I am not ashamed of them, but because I don't truly desire them in my life, so what reason do I have to hide them? If I hid them it would only make me a hypocrite. (note: "not hiding" is not the same as advertising.) So, here I am, an immoral person lecturing on morality. Christ said "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged", which might make some critical of my doing this. But I have no fear.
I recently had time to converse with a long time acquaintance. I will not disclose his identity (after all, this is not a personal attack), and feel confident he is safe from being "found out" because of this, and I don't think speaking of him anonymously is a betrayal of his trust. We have talked many times, and we get along just fine. But in this recent discussion he opened up more about his life, and some of the details. Some things didn't bother me; do whatever you want. It doesn't affect me. Some things I disapproved of, but wrote off as something that still didn't affect me and that I couldn't change. But there were some things that quite honestly infuriated me. And I did judge.
