The Homosexual Paradigm – Personal Experience

(Originally posted May 1, 2012.  Re-posted out of a sense of need for the current discussion). There is no universal homosexual paradigm – but there are strong paradigms that drive our society.   Previous generations of Americans often ignored the Gay community – you stay in your closet, I’ll stay in mine.  Today we find the […]

Faith or Ideology – Checking Personal Morality

This guy “Francis, Pope” made some comments recently regarding Christian ideology.  He must be famous or something because the internet is frying cables in dispensing his remarks.  Who he is is not as important was what he said.  I believe that words and ideas stand alone, regardless of who conjured them. Mr. Francis said something […]

A Personal Fight With Social Injustice

Most of my adult life people have treated me as if I am particularly intelligent.  Some have openly called me intellectual.  My thought was usually that they were mistaken, that I am well read and speak well.  When I take a shower and dress in a suit I present pretty well.  I did not receive […]

Confusing Borders, Boundaries, and the American Comfort Level

From Ohg Rea Tone: People sometimes drift into my personal space.  I generally enjoy people so my personal space does not extend as far as the reach of my arm.  When I shake hands I am likely to pull the other person close, look them in the eye, and measure their sincerity.  The enigma of […]

A Personal Reflection On Ted Kennedy

In 1988 I was serving on the Professional Consultation Committee (PCC) of a local hospital.  The PCC was a citizen advisory board to the Department of Spiritual Health with a staff of Clinical Pastoral Educators.  More simply put, our committee assisted the hospital chaplains.  1988 was the year Michael Dukakis ran as the Democratic nominee […]

This Election Was Personal – And Angry

This election was exhausting.  The campaigns were passionate in a time when deep fears griped each of us.  Even George Bush supporters believe he was treated unfairly by world events beyond his control – but those events happened to all of us.  All of us, Americans and our fellow earthly citizens, have been deeply impacted […]

The Wall Street Bailout is Personal – KISS

This is personal.  This disaster on Wall Street and in the halls of Washington.  Most of us have no idea what our Government leaders are talking about.  Most of us don’t understand why every man woman and child in America has to put up something like $2,500 to bailout a rich Wall Street Banker.  But […]

Political sniping has become an essential element of political campaigning. In this video we find Barack Obama pounding John McCain on McCain’s elitist view of the economy. McCain had been asked how many […]

The Personal Presidency of George W. Bush

Son, The history of leadership is couched in government structure.  Monarchy, Parliamentary,  Republic, Dictator, or pure totalitarianism.  Our country, The United States of America is a Republic – ruled by law.  Laws are constructed by a Congress that answers to the people.  Thus the idea that the people rule the country.  George W. Bush has […]
