homo- hetero- or God

Homosexuality throws society out of the rut of conformity. In the 21st century, not many people can escape dealing with homosexuality or gender change.

Heartache, courage, freedom, and perplexity surround the topic, forcing society to judge one’s self and others, not by gender, but by content of character.

Because we live in a human society, and because law is better than lawlessness, the issue of sexuality has to be dealt with. When making decisions, it helps to get outside the mores of human culture and think on a God-centered view.

I believe God is Love, Spirit, emboldening the characteristics habitually attached to the masculine and feminine.

Gender, as defined by physiology, doesn’t relate to God.

God is referred to as creator. If God is Father-Mother, embodying and manifesting the good in both masculine and feminine characteristics, then we are entitled to reflect the wholeness of God, regardless of our body shape or sexual preference.

To insist God’s children are male, or female, or androgynous, or the wrong sex, is to assume God is divided or incomplete.

God is Spirit. We manifest all the spiritual qualities of a complete God.

Let laws be made with the wisdom and insight that those laws may or will change again, and again, until completeness rules. And, we can remind ourselves that we are more complete than incomplete.
